Onja

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great stove for car camping with an innovative design that helps to get the cooking surface elevated off the ground. Powerful burners that can be controlled to get a simmer if necessary. Would definitely recommend for small group car camping and picnics where portability is necessary. The setup for the stove is pretty easy since you just turn it over and attach the fuel canisters to the bottom. The advantage this provides is that you don't need to carry the fuel separately and it is already attached… Full review

Eta Lite

rated 4 of 5 stars A very good affordable stove. I bought this to replace my Eta Solo, which had a larger pot. This stove is very fuel efficient. It carries a small isobutane canister (7+ ounces). When carrying a fuel canister in the pot during a multi-day trip, use a plastic bag to prevent rust/discoloration caused by a wet canister. The stove comes with a piezo igniter, but this can not be relied on. Plan on lighting it with a lighter. Above: Breakfast on a rock. Primus Eta stove, Snow Peak single wall mug, Sea… Full review

Micron Lantern

rated 4 of 5 stars Light, compact, great lil unit. It was bright enough to light up under an awning. My only concern was this was not a fast setup device. You have to burn the mantle until it's all white which can take a few minutes. Definitely start assembly before it gets dark if this is your only means of light for the night. The mantle appears to be brittle after use and I'm not sure it will withstand being in my hiking pack for another trip. Overall it is great for heat and light and is light enough to pack in… Full review

PowerLighter

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Well-made outdoor lighter optimized for lighting the stoves and campfires. Supports refilling from standard gas canisters via optional quite expensive adapter. Very convenient for outdoor use. During more than 10 years in backpacking and camping I tried numerous ways for lighting the stoves and campfires. None of them were perfect though: the matches are expendable and prone to getting wet, consumer lighters are exhausted quickly and may drain gas into your gear. I’d used the fire stone for couple… Full review

Onja

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Overall, solid piece of gear. Great solution for those looking for home stove top-quality stoves to take outdoors without the price tag, weight, or footprint issues of conventional camping stoves. As a Ranger for The Dyrt, I get products from time to time to review.  A versatile, well made and compact designed product that has allowed me to expand my cooking options on so many activities. Before I was limited to carrying the backpacker, single-serving, water-boiling stoves for day hikes and road… Full review
