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.
- Inexpensive price
- Small, lightweight
- Easy to carry
- Not sure how long the ignition system will last
- Surface area is small, so not so good for large pots or frying pans
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 items in the pot set along with the tiny stove itself.
It seems pretty durable, made from aluminum and stainless steel. It had a double O-ring seal on the bottom and a easy to use folding valve. The piezo igniter system works very well and the flame is strong and hot, boiling a cup of water in just three minutes.
I've edited together a detailed video review so please check it out:

I just acquired this stove so I've only used it on a few day trips, but plan on taking it along on all future backpacking trips.
