The Max Micro Stove is also sold as the Coleman Micro Backpack Stove.



I have never had any trouble lighting it. I like that…

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: Bought it, but don't recall its price. Not expensive at all.


I have never had any trouble lighting it. I like that it connects right on top of the fuel and uses the fuel tank as a stable base. Also provides a nice stable base for pot to cook on. Very lightweight. Sorry, I don't have a fuel canister to show with it in the pictures.


  • Stable
  • Lightweight
  • Extremely compact


  • The only drawback is it has no shield to protect from winds.





Very easy to get lit. I love that it is so compact and easy to use. I have had it for approximately 5 years and haven't had any problems with it.

I keep it in the box it came in which is bent and ripped and falling apart but the stove doesn't have anything wrong with it. It's not bent or anything. Very durable.

I have taken it out in all types of terrain and never been dissatisfied with its performance.

Thanks for the review, Amy. I'm wondering if you could show a pic of this stove next to a fuel canister. I'd like to get an idea of size.
