BioLite CookStove

rated 2.5 of 5 stars The top hook melted the fourth time it was used. Prior to that it was a lot of fun being able to burn wood both for cooking and having the ambience of a fire. I have only had the Biolite for a few days however it has already melted the top hook so I now can't remove the fan unit. Prior to that I used it at home and at a friend's house and cooked up some chicken on a frypan and the heat level was great once it was going well. It does burn through wood fairly quickly, however you can just build up… Full review

BioLite CampStove

rated 4 of 5 stars The BioLite CampStove is a very good backpacking stove with excellent charging capabilities for your electronic devices in the field. Well thought out accessories for the stove are available including, the Kettle Pot, a flexible LED light, and a very functional grill. Every time I'm in the backcountry the BioLite is my go-to stove. Not 5 stars because of the lack of more than two fan settings (easy to burn food on High setting). I first saw this stove advertised as a popup ad on a social media site… Full review

Emberlit UL Titanium

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very nice and everything the previous reviewer had noted. The most glaring negative not mentioned was the sharp edges. Wear gloves if you can, especially the first few times you assemble and break down the stove.  Full review

Seek Outside Titanium Wood Stove - Medium

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Lightweight, packable, easy to assemble, titanium wood stove for hot tent winter camping. Not a cheap investment, but if you enjoy winter camping and getting out in the snow well worth the cost. I had bought 12 yards of silpoly seconds for a great price and decided to sew myself a hot tent. So after looking at some different stove options I decided the Seek Outside Medium Titanium Wood Stove would be the right size for what I had in mind. It isn't the cheapest, nor the lightest available, but after… Full review

Esbit Pocket Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars This product is a good alternative to alcohol stoves and butane stoves. It packs up about the same volume as the other stoves, although its shape I think makes it pack better. My first use and impressions of the Esbit Pocket Stove are mixed. In some ways I think it's better than a butane stove and burner or the alcohol stove. Weight is not so much of a factor either way. Meaning, the Esbit stove is light enough, but the solid fuel blocks add up in weight, as realistically you've got to carry one… Full review

Solo Stove Lite

rated 5 of 5 stars Quick easy way for a meal or coffee for one (possibly two) using just a few dry sticks, pinecones, cattails, etc. Very little smoke if tinder is dry. Can also be used with an alcohol stove as backup. A little expensive but well made! Easy to pack and use if tinder is dry. Plenty of flame which you can't really control other than by adding more or less fuel. Can boil quickly in around 5-7 min with dry fuel. Windscreen is adequate and burner is stable on a flat surface. I really like mine! Full review

Toaks Titanium Backpacking Wood Burning Stove (small)

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Super light titanium wood gas stove, this is the smaller version, and fits nicely into a Toaks 750ml pot making a 250 g cook kit that you don't have to carry fuel for. Will burn twigs, sticks, pinecones, almost anything you're going to find on the forest floor.                     The stove nests in the Toaks 750 ml pot in its own nylon stuff sack.                       The stove is made up of three piece and is simple to assemble.                    It takes about… Full review

Solo Stove Lite

rated 4 of 5 stars Easy to carry, not dependent on fuel canisters, eco-friendly as can be. Perfect for the 3/10-day packer, or bikepacker. This is my first backpacking stove, and I'm not disappointed at all. When you consider the weight of fuel canisters for other stoves, this one is plenty lightweight enough. I've learned to pack some soaked cotton balls to get the flame started on a rainy stayover.   This stove fits great into the pack; slips right into the Solo Pot, so only one thing to make room for in the pack. Full review

Esbit Solid Fuel Stove & Cookset CS585HA

rated 2 of 5 stars Not a very good stove. The design of this stove is its weak point. Esbit fuel works as expected. The pot is well made with a good lid. The stove does not work. The fuel is too low to boil water. I tried wind screens, a DIY sliding door to close the side port, all to no avail.   My overall impression is one of disappointment. The stove is SO close to workable, but it fails to do the one thing it is made for, heating stuff. I was going through my equipment and supplies this afternoon for the upcoming… Full review
