Campingaz Turbo 270

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Been using a screw-on canister valve I have been selling. It's now forever useful. I have had these stoves since I started hiking and camping. I never want another stove. It boils water fast. It can cook stuff without it raising and lowering its flame. Fairly windproof. The Gaz canister fitting is not all that great, but it works. I had one fail and caused a flame around the fitting. Something that can fail due to the gas canisters having no thread. I solved that with a new conversion valve I have… Full review

MSR PocketRocket

rated 5 of 5 stars Small, lightweight, powerful stove for all types of backpacking. This little thing has been with me for 10+ years and I have never had a problem with it. It's so easy to stash and yet powerful enough to cook for 1 or 2 people. It cuts down on the weight for any backpacking trip.  I bought the fuel canister feet, which is easy to pack and easily locks onto the fuel canisters to provide stability. It's as easy as screw on and light. It's easy to hear when it is sending gas and can be lit. It lights… Full review

Camp Chef Stryker 100 Isobutane Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a quality product at a budget price. It has a built-in starter and weight wise it is light and user friendly. Setup is easy and with the built-in lighter it fires right up. Flame control is pretty good, but simmering is not the greatest. Its strength is heating water, if you purchase the simmer plate it gives you more control over just using the flame.  The stove is pretty good in the wind and boil time for 1 or 2 cups of water is about 2.5 minutes with excellent fuel efficiency.  Darn,… Full review

MSR WindPro

rated 5 of 5 stars A little heavier than some, but worth its weight for several reasons. I have used all sorts of stoves, liquid fueled and canister types. For weight and convenience I almost always take a canister stove nowadays. The sit-on-top canister stoves are lighter, but unless weight is a major consideration on a trip I like the WindPro for several reasons. It is stable because the pot and stove are very close to the ground, not top heavy like the ones that sit atop the canister. The pot stand arms are more… Full review

Jetboil Flash Cooking System

rated 4 of 5 stars The new 2018 Jetboil Flash is designed to boil water even faster than the original Flash. Jetboil’s Flash cooking system is a convenient option for the traditional or lightweight backpacker, who is looking to quickly boil water for hot drinks or dehydrated meals. Double the BTU’s? Jetboil DID IT. A mainstay in the outdoor industry, Jetboil was founded in New Hampshire of the USA in 2001. Their function-specific design has won millions over, and seem to be on every trail these days. Close-up… Full review

Jetboil milliJoule Cooking System

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Best thing about this stove is that it can be used with the fuel inverted for cold weather (below freezing) or at high altitude (+12k). I bought this to replace using a white gas stove. SETUP: Very simple setup—connect regulator to canister and you're ready to go. No need for any priming or pumping! IGNITION & FLAME CONTROL: Works great with the canister upright, just like any other JetBoil you can easily simmer with this in this configuration. When it gets to cold or you're too high for the… Full review

Jetboil Zip Cooking System

rated 1 of 5 stars Kookpot houder er niet standard bij!! [Cooking pot holder not standard!] Waardeloos dat er geen pot houder bij zit voor dat geld.  Na koken water krijg je de kop er niet af!! omdat hij uitzet en zich vast zet.  [Worthless that there is no pot holder for that money. After boiling water you will not get the head off !! because it expands and settles.] Full review

Primus ClassicTrail

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I used the original version of this stove in 1973 . It was guaranteed to work at 12,000 feet. We used it on Mount Whitney 14496.811 feet and it worked great. At Dicks Lake the temperature was 0-ish, the wind was blowing at 35-40 mph, and it boiled water in 10 minutes. Without this stove my brother Michael and I would have never done our 1400+ miles of the Pacific Crest Trail. Full review

Primus ClassicTrail

rated 5 of 5 stars Simple, well-made, and it works. Last summer we drove 4000 miles, camping across the country and back, without a stove or really any cooking utensils. Combine that with a fire ban throughout much of the Western U.S., and it meant a lot of cold meals and mediocre fast food. So for our next camping trip in the California Redwoods I decided to get out my old backpacking stove and see if it might still work. I was honestly doubtful. I bought my Primus Classic Trail Stove maybe 15 years ago and for the… Full review
