Coleman 550B Multi-Fuel Stove

30-year-old product—still delivers 100%. I‘m no expert on these stoves—this my first pressure stove, but I have a few pressure lamps so I’m familiar with the principles and safety aspects.  This a 1989 model. Hardly used and works perfectly. Nice arc of intense green/blue flame that is highly controllable. Original box, made in Canada. Will be used when camping a few times a year. Mainly coffee prep.  Full review

Optimus Hiker+

Sturdy. Can be used lightly in a tent without burning the floor. Always work. I have used the 111T since the '80ies. The last year the Hiker plus with the DAWG conversion.  I can not emphasise enough: The first thing you do when you get the thing, is to clean the tank. If you do not do this, you probably will experience a stove failure, and if you then do not carry a new filter, you're going to eat cold food.  With good care, not the old, nor the new Hiker, will fail. I always use indoor kerosene,… Full review

MSR DragonFly

Not ultralight, but bombproof. Easy to set up. Easy to light in normal temps. Takes more effort in winter. Highly adjustable flame. Boils a litre in about 3 minutes (summer). Frying takes a bit of work due to small flame footprint...requires that you constantly move frying pan around. Requires the windscreen for sure. Have to be careful with stability. It is noisy and somewhat heavy compared to others, but it’s indestructable. The only issue I experienced is when somebody overtightened the pump… Full review

Coleman Feather 442 Dual Fuel Stove

This stove is a no-nonsense, easy to use product. It is long-lasting, tough, and reliable. I have used it at least 100 times since 1994. I use only unleaded 91 fuel, nothing else. I have used this stove in varying weather conditions. Being run on Unleaded it is easily started. It cooks in windy conditions and it cooks in freezing conditions when my mates' gas cookers won't even start. I won't go camping without it. It is also conveniently stored in a Tupperware container when not in use.  Full review

Alpkit Kraku

According to Alpkit, designed with the ultralight solo adventurer in mind, this high powered camping stove has a tiny pack size but can still deliver the power output of a gas stove twice its size. I have used this on a few short trips to boil water and cook simple pasta meals. It was much better at the former. Made from titanium, it weighs just 45g. That's almost half the weight of an MSR PocketRocket and at £25 it is also half the price. It is tiny and fits easily inside a small mug. When I first… Full review

Edelrid Hexon

Edelrid's answer to the classic MSR Dragonfly that does not disappoint. Lighter, more compact, and compatible with a Trangia pot stand, this multi-fuel stove truly is one of the most versatile on the market. Described by Edelrid as a new-generation, ultra-light, multi-fuel stove. Weighing just 220 grams, it’s one of the lightest stoves in its class. I have been impressed by other Edelrid products for their quality and innovation (particularly the gas canister converter which has saved m a great… Full review

Alpkit Koro

Those clever people at Alpkit have done it again. This is an excellent value-for-money gas canister burner that performs flawlessly. At just 124g and with a pre-heating tube for colder conditions and atlitude, this little stove packsa lot of punch for its size. Alpkit describe this as a serious mountaineering stove, but I am increasingly using it on the trail because it is so lightweight and compact. Used in combination with my MSR titanium cook set, this is a versatile and easy to use setup for… Full review

Optimus Svea 123

Old school stove from the last century, great for modern camping. This stove is very simple to operate, you basically pour a little white gas on it and "light it on fire." This causes the fuel in the tank to expand and turn the liquid to gas. I bought this stove on the used market about a decade ago for $30. It has saved us on more than a few winter campouts in our scout troop. When our normal Coleman stoves would not operate due to the pump seal shrinking in the cold, the "Old Seva 123" always… Full review

Fire Maple FMS-118

Pretty nice gas stove with pre-heating tube. Works stable with cold gas balloon and seem reliable enough. Suits for boiling water and food preparation. I can recommend it for hikers and tourist for food preparations even at winter. It is quite heavy and big (non-compact) compare to other stoves. (on right side Primus Express and BRS-3000T stoves) This stove is easy to set up. It stays firmly. Flame control is pretty good and gas regulation happens with delay, it should be taken into account. Spin… Full review
