rated 5 of 5 stars Great stove. Does what you need and more. This is a great stove. I have had no problems using either canister fuel or liquid fuel. It boils water quick, and is great for cooking other foods. I not only use mine on the trail, but I use it when we spend the day on the lake. I cook hot dogs and other foods for 10 people no problem. This stove is well worth the price and weight for its versatility. Full review

Micron Ti 2.5

rated 5 of 5 stars I have been using this stove for around...maybe 10 years? Never have any issue, and I saw another review for hard-to-fold issue, that is because of Titanium's characters, the good abrasion with other metal and non-stick to the food. It's totally expected and, in a way, I appreciate Titanium is solid when putting a pot on it, and not to have a boiling water pot moving around on top of the stove. Once you understand the pros, you will realize they're not cons. This is a great product I have been using… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars On a multi-day trek in Ireland (in winter) I was using an alcohol stove. All fine until we really needed a hot meal in the middle of the day to be able to keep going comfortably. Alcohol stove took aaaaaages to get some water to the boiling point. My friend boiled water, ate his meal, boiled my, by then, 'warm' water, let me eat my meal and was all set and ready to go in no time. I was amazed by the immense output of his stove, the Primus Omnifuel. Ordered it immediately when I came home. Have used… Full review


rated 3.5 of 5 stars Good all-around stove for three-season use. This compact white gas stove is the smallest stove that I own. It weighs 10 oz with the pump, which is 4 oz lighter than the MSR WhisperLite (14 oz with pump). It's also a bit smaller and all together perfect for one-person cooking. The pump uses a leather gasket instead of a rubber gasket as in the MSR pumps. Either way, if you maintain them they will last for years. I was drawn to the Primus brand partly because of the metal pump. I got my first WhisperLite… Full review

Eta Lite

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Might be one of the most overlooked stoves out there. Singles and couples would do well to research this stove for its ease, portability, weight, and design. I LOVE my Primus ETA Lite. As a backpacker I've used this on three major multi-day trips and several shorter trips. The self contained design (fuel canister and stove all fit in mug with locking lid) makes it easy to throw in the pack. The mug locks on the stove so that you're not worried about stability, but it also includes a stabilizer for… Full review
