Awesome stove if you boil 1 cup at a time.
Other than that, I like my lil hobo or my coleman propane.
But for single person hikers pocket rockets are good.

It has its place in your kit. I don't think the intent was to roast a pig. Just a handy little compact stove for those cold afternoons of trout fishing or if you need a cup of joe while waiting for the next wave of zombies.

The little Isopropane stoves have their purpose and I like the simplicity and no need to handle liquid fuel. They burn well in multiple climates also. However, in a pinch you may not be able to find these little canisters of fuel when you need them the most. For strictly camping and backpacking or power outages I like them. I've got my eye on a JetBoil system for Christmas.

I like multi-fuel stoves like the MSR whisperlite for this reason of fuel availablity. They burn white gas, unleaded and jet fuel. The alcohol stoves are cool because you can find bottles of Heet (fuel line antifreeze) just about anywhere up in the colder climates or denatured alcohol at any hardware or home improvement store.

The Kit Up site is excellent!!

just my humble opinion - but the jetboil PCS - is the only mini gas canister stove worthy of consideration ,

Kit up is frequented and run by some serious dudes. They've been there and done that. Great site, and I tread lightly when I'm there.

Trashed all the old butanes. Had 3 and two different size canisters and it was a pain. But one day i was cooking some camp coffee and the little black gasket popped out and a half full canister rolled down the hill with a 3 foot flame. When i got home they all 3 went in the trash.

Got out my trusty 99 and never looked back. Old school multi-fuel and self cleaning. with the pump, most anything that burns is good. 2# thats worth every oz.

I lived off of one of those for two months.

It worked great. I had the one with the ignition switch on it that broke on the second day of travel. After that I lighted it with a flint.

I don't like the whole proprietary fuel thing but it is fast to boil, small and light.

Kill two birds with one stone. Not a good backpacking option but great for base camp.

proprietary fuels are the devils work

i accept the ties that propane or butane stoves have - simply because for short term and light weigh trips - they are unbeatable

plus - they are almost zero maintainence - if put away clean - they will assemble and fire up instantly - no worries about fuel leaks , fuel degradation etc etc or having fuel + primer

but liquid fuel stoves should run on a variety - or at least blended fuel

I have a msr pocketrocket and a snowpeak giga. Both are excellent but I personally prefer the giga. Can't go wrong with either of them, though. As mentioned before, the pezio lighters on these stoves are just silly.

Can't go wrong with a penny stove you can make yourself and they are very popular now.

It's amazing how far lightweight pack gear has come in the last few years. It's been revolutionary

Agreed. The ability to literally carry a camp in your backpack over the last 10 years is crazy.

I only offered this post as a data point, not intending to drive people to buy it but to just let you folks know what's available. If you have something more effective, then that's awesome: share.
