What to write?
Here are some things to consider when reviewing a stove:
Setup: How easy is the stove to setup and fuel?
Ignition: How easy is to prime or light? Does any built-in igniter work well consistently?
Flame Control: Is the burner adjustable? If so, how well?
Cooking: How well does the stove let you boil, simmer, fry, bake, etc.?
Boil Time: How long does it take to boil water in sheltered conditions?
Wind: Does the stove stay lit in wind? How does wind affect boiling time? Is there a windscreen?
Fuel Efficiency: How much water can you boil or food can you cook, for a given volume of fuel?
Stability: Is it stable and secure with a pot, or a potential "noodle-dumper"?
Packability: How well does the stove pack away and store?
Ease of Use: Do parts and features work as expected? Consistently?
Features: Any noteworthy features, designs, or technology? Do they live up to expectations?
Construction & Durability: Is it well made? How has it held up over time?
Conditions: Where, when, and how long have you used this gear?
