Soto Amicus without Igniter

I bought this after being disappointed with the Optimus Crux Lite and after reading lots of reviews. It turns out it was the right choice; this is superior in every way.  Flame adjustment is fine and accurate, wind resistance is good thanks to its concave burner, and pot stability is improved by having four pot supports instead of the normal three.  While being light and compact, the build quality is superb, it feels well made, and at the same time competetively priced.  This is now part of a… Full review

Optimus Crux Lite

I bought this without reading reviews, relying on the good reputation for quality and long experience that Optimus has to offer amongst camping stoves.  Very light and compact, this fitted well in my GSI Halulite Minimalist pot together with a gas canister and lighter.  Like other users I found that the flame adjustment valve was very vague and fiddly to operate, almost having a mind of its own. Left unattended, if not on full power the flame would gradually decrease untill it would go out altogether,… Full review

Primus OmniFuel

I bought a new Primus Omnifuel 2 and after the second use the burner bell deformed severely. It's two months old and I can't get Primus warranty to even return my emails or phone calls. I would even be willing to pay for a new burner assembly, but Primus is the only place I know that has them and I get zero response. Update: Primus is sending me a new stove. It's a solid stove but I recommend disconnecting that spring. It contracts when super hot. That's what I will do and it should be fine. I bought… Full review

Jetboil MiniMo Cooking System

The JetBoil MiniMo makes cooking in the wilderness easy and enjoyable. It also boils water really quickly! The newer materials, however, are a bit of a letdown. I bought the MiniMo at the co-op garage sale. The previous owner had returned it stating that on the maiden voyage, the stove shot flames out of the sides of the chassis and burned the plastic housing.Burned the system was. I couldn’t figure out how this might have happened so I thought I’d purchase it used for the $44 price tag and… Full review

Soto New River Pot + Amicus with Igniter

The Soto New River pot and Amicus stove are a great canister stove/pot combo, which I received as a prize for the Trailspace Top 25 reviewers of 2019. Nice sized support arms, great pot stability and light weight make this one a winner. Amicus Stove Specifications: Output: 2800 kcal/h 3260w 10210 BTU Duration: Burns approx.1.5 hours with 8 oz (250g) canister Weight: 2.9 oz (81g) Dimensions: In use 3.0 x 4.0 x 3.4 in (7.6 x 10.0 x 8.6 cm) When stowed 1.7 x 1.6 x 3.0 in (4.3 x 4.0 x 7.5 cm) (W… Full review

Jetboil Joule Group Cooking System

This is my third Jetboil stove and I literally damaged it simply setting it up. The two back stand supports are extremely flimsy. I bent one holding the stove in my hand while inserting the gas canister. I will wait until I hear a reply from Jetboil before I decide what to do with the stove. I received a Jetboil Joule as a birthday present. I have had two different Jetboil stoves in the past and was exited to use a newer and larger version. This one is advertised as being wonderful to use in temps… Full review

Camp Chef Stryker 100 Isobutane Stove

Quality build and everything fits inside, including 8-ounce fuel canister. I bought this stove to replace my JetBoil in which first the piezo igniter quit, and then the burner element disintegrated and died during my 2018 bicycle tour. I wanted a stove that would hold up under extreme conditions and pack up tight and compact for travel inside my bicycle panniers. The Camp Chef Stryker 100 sure looked like a winner as I was viewing it on the Amazon website. For comparison purposes, I’ve included… Full review

Tomshoo Outdoor Camping Hiking Cookware Pot Set

I bought the Tomshoo Backpacker Stove off Amazon, kind of an impulse purchase because it was only $20, and it included a two-piece pot set as well. I had been looking for a smaller stove to take on my backpacking treks and figured I'd check this one out. I had never heard of the "Tomshoo" brand before (made in China) but saw they had other outdoor products online, so I took a chance. I'm very pleased with this little stove so far. It is very compact, and I can store a gas cylinder and a few other… Full review
