Recent Multi-Fuel Stove Reviews

MSR WhisperLite Universal

rated 5 of 5 stars Wonderful, very versatile stove. I bought this stove new in 2014 and have had several opportunities since then to make use of it. The fact that there are several fuel options is the main selling point for me. Before you go out with this stove you should definitely familiarize yourself with all of the functioning aspects of the stove. The stove comes with everything you need to make the change from fuel canisters to fuel bottles, and from white gas to kerosene or gasoline. In a lot of the wilderness… Full review

Primus OmniFuel

rated 5 of 5 stars This one burns all the stoves including the devil downstairs. I was a scoutmaster, and a stove collector of both gas and liquid. If you are looking for a stove, this is a machine. Top stoves in my opinion: Omnifuel and XGK EX (tied #1), Dragonfly, Omnilite, MSR MicroRocket and PocketRocket, SOTO Micro Regulator and Windmaster. If you want to buy a stove, look for manufacturer's reputation, ask veterans in backpacking, and take your time!! Full review

MSR WhisperLite Universal

rated 5 of 5 stars Bullet proof The WhisperLite is one of the most versatile, light, and durable liquid fuel stoves on the market. From its hose to its frame, it was built for the outdoors. Full review

MSR WhisperLite Universal

rated 4 of 5 stars Had it forever, still stands the test of time, always lights. When this came out it was the staple in backpacking stoves. I know there have been exciting innovations and I am weight conscience, but this thing has never failed me. Take care of your gear and it will last you forever. Full review

Vargo Triad XE

rated 3 of 5 stars This stove works as advertised. It'll heat enough water for your meal and a hot drink. But there are issues. I've used this stove perhaps 40 times in the past year or so. And while it's not a bad stove, it's not a great one either. My biggest issue is filling and refilling the stove. The fuel "capsule" cap is removed from the stand and taken apart. Filled to approximately 1oz and the cap replaced. Every freaking time. Other alcohol stoves that have an open top are much easier to cook longer because… Full review

MSR WhisperLite Universal

rated 5 of 5 stars Portable, easy setup, and versatile. Multiple fuel capabilities gives this the edge over compatible stoves. Love this stove. I can use canister fuel or liquid (Coleman fuel). I haven't tried to use gasoline or kerosene. Easily fits into a Maxpedition or Condor water bottle bag with a GSI cup/pot set. Full review

Primus OmniFuel

rated 4.5 of 5 stars While family and friends were out buying MSR, I held back and continued to use my old Coleman Peak 1 until it rusted through. The biggest problem with MSR is the stiff hose that will lift the stove right off the ground. This Primus is great. This is my first season with my Primus stove. Family members own MRS DragonFly, Whisperlite, and a light weight butane burner. I've kept my Coleman Peak One (silver, not the two-valve brown one) in service for 24 years. It has been ultimately convenient, reliable,… Full review

Trail Designs Classic Ti-Tri

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Trail Designs Classic Ti-Tri stove system offers a pot stand, a windscreen, and three fuel choices—alcohol, Esbit, wood—in a durable, lightweight package. Best for lightweight or ultralight backpackers hiking in conditions that make these fuel options viable and practical. The search for the perfect backpacking stove is virtually endless: for we DIYers and MYOG junkies, the endless array of stoves that can be made in one's workshop (or even on the trail) offer low cost and the satisfaction… Full review

Vargo Triad XE

rated 5 of 5 stars While making your own cat can stove may be the inexpensive way to go I needed something I could expect to last a long long time and be efficient. The Vargo Triad XE endured the Eastern Continental Trail journey for 339 days and is still in use. It is ultralight and tough. I needed a stove to depend on. Something light, durable and efficient. This stove had all three plus is designed for solid fuel if necessary, though I had no problem obtaining liquid fuel. Once I determined the burn time I was… Full review
