Esbit CS585HA Cookset for Solid Fuel

rated 3 of 5 stars This kit is very lightweight and durable. It is also very compact. I have had this kit for a few years now and have used it on more than one section hike. I do like the kit, however, if there is any chance of windy conditions, I wouldn't recommend it. I do like how small and compact the kit is. It really packs down small. It is very lightweight. I added a few things to the kit. Made the most of the empty space inside and only added a few ounces. I still use mine, however, for me I use it primarily… Full review

BioLite CampStove 2

rated 4 of 5 stars Forests are full of fuel; why carry petroleum? Charge your phone, your camera... as long as you can find bits of wood. Disaster? You can still cook and charge. Car camping? Perfect. I've been watching BioLite since they were founded. Their mission, to bring energy (cooking heat and light and recharging capacity) to the big share of the world that's off-grid, is important and worth supporting. The new CampStove2 convinced me to actually buy their product. Started using it last week in Hell's Canyon… Full review

Esbit Pocket Stove

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Aargh... I was going to say something like: "Throw this POS into the creek." That would have been a mistake. Never throw garbage into the out of doors, neither into water nor on land. Smash it with a hammer and throw it into the metal recycling bin. Who has not seen these in places like Wally World? Of late they have developed a reputation of sorts among the fast and light crowd, but for what reason is beyond my comprehension.  The fuel is expensive. The fuel is hard to find. The fuel stinks. The… Full review

Emberlit FireAnt Titanium

rated 4 of 5 stars The Emberlit FireAnt is a fun, yet so practical, solid fuel stove useful as a backup or everyday backpacking stove. The Emberlit FireAnt is a fun, yet so practical, solid fuel stove useful as a backup or everyday backpacking stove. I own the titanium model Ok, I'll admit that setting up this little stove takes some practice and effort. Once it is set up it is stable and easy to use. Setup is not super easy, but neither is it difficult. There are really only five pieces that you need to slot together. Full review

Esbit CS585HA Cookset for Solid Fuel

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Other reviews summarize it, so I won't rehash things (much)... Has mini fry-pan/cover, larger pot, stand, alcohol burner, tablet stand. Both pots have coated butterfly handles. Everything nests together in a mesh bag. The tablet stand seems to place the flame at pretty much the right height and the alcohol burner is a Trangia-type alcohol burner, but unlike Trangia the ESBIT has a foldout handle on the simmer ring to help adjust the opening to control flame/heat while in the pot stand. Everything… Full review

Bushbuddy Ultra

rated 4 of 5 stars Bushbuddy gasifying stoves are handmade in Alaska. They are simple and effective. It's not the lightest or most efficient stove out there, but there is something special about using this kind of heritage equipment. I have many wood burning stoves, but for short walks and a brew on a calm evening I often reach for this one. It is suitable for 1-2 people looking for a cheap alternative to gas, meths, or hexamine tablets. Yes, there are lighter, cheaper and more efficient designs but this is so simple… Full review

Toaks Titanium Backpacking Wood Burning Stove (small)

rated 4 of 5 stars A brilliant and simple 'gasifying' wood burning stove that slots together quickly and stacks inside the Toaks Titanium pot for a simple, lightweight, and compact wood burning cook system. I have many wood burning stoves and this is one of my favourites. I can have it set up with a decent flame in seconds using birch bark or a recycled inner tube tyre  as tinder and a few twigs. It is much quicker than waiting for an alcohol stove to 'bloom' and, provided the wood is dry, fuel can be collected whilst… Full review

mKettle

rated 5 of 5 stars A portable hot pot for morning joe anywhere in the world...and a little oatmeal. Purchased online via Massdrop although have had and used other larger units sold under Kelly Kettle moniker.  This one differs as it is extensively anodized, has a wraparound neoprene sleeve for handling and uses a silicone plug to transport water when not heating. Also has base that serves as burning pot and is large enough to hold some alcohol stove units. I used an open Trangia alcohol dish and produced my own… Full review

DIY: Collapsible Cylinder Wood Stove

rated 5 of 5 stars DIY wood burning cylinder stove offers the same functionality as commercial models at 1/10th the cost. Most suitable for family sized tents and groups of two or more backpackers in winter. This DIY (Do It Yourself) stove is not a branded or sold product, requiring the user to collect the parts and build the stove themselves. I built the prototypes for personal use and to instruct Junior Forest Wardens (children) to make it themselves. As I do not have the time to make them for sale, I have provided… Full review
