    Ive been very impressed with the Primus eta stoves I have.

    I have three 😳

    One is a big multi fuel, the two smaller ones just rub on gas.

    The stoves have efficient windbreaks and the pot bottoms have a fancy heat exchanger. They are very controllable.

    I bought one of THESE 2 years ago after reading a couple of recommendations on UKC.

    It has performed faultlessly over the last two years, used most weekends in all weathers. All i’ve had to do is tighten the legs on one occasion (just a regular screwdriver).

    I got mine for £15 including postage from HK. it comes in a decent wee bag too.

    Jet boils are a convenient and fast come in a range of sizes. Bigger stuff not got a clue im still using a £10 single ring one i picked up 11 years ago.

    My ancient Epigas stove has given up the ghost, so I need a new decent lightweight burner. What’s good?

    Also, could do with something larger for family car-campin trips too. Any suggestions?

    Much as I love my MSR Pocket Rocket, I find it a bit slow, especially in the wind even with a wind baffle. Im toying with getting a jetboil for my solo bivvy trips in future.

    i do like my MSR for robust but you gotta keep em clean.

    borrowed a jetboil a few times and quite like it although tis bulky

    A Jetboil is great for boiling just water a few times, hence the reason a lot of squaddies use them on exercise. For something a bit more long term, go for a multifuel stove, maybe an MSR whisperlite. Come to think of it, Go Systems does a multifuel burnet that looks quite good.

    A few years ago, I had a petrol stove from Sigg but it went missing mysteriously…

    Was an amazing stove – wish I could find another.

    yep, they are good value, stable and efficient–fine unless you are planning to go in the wilderness/far off lands where gas cannisters are non existent.

    We’ve got a Jetboil which is very good, but I’ve just got hold of a Biolite and it’s fantastic – no more messing about with disposable gas canisters, and it’s great fun to just play with fire.

    The Whisperlites can be a bit dorty if run on anything other than Coleman Fuel/White Gas/Essence C. However the newish one runs on propane cans as well so a good option if a bit heavy.

    The newish Primus Lander looks good if you fancy l/w multifuel:

    Or perhaps the Edelrid Opilo or Primus Express Spider for a remote can/preheater gas stove if cold weather use is planned?
