    $20 Camping Stove Review

    I bought myself an inexpensive backpacking stove online and I'm really impressed with it's performance. For $20, I got a compact, folding stove with a piezoelectrig ignition system. It also came with a two-piece pot set and carrying bag. This is a great little stove, perfect for a backpacking trip or as a backup to your regular camp stove. Please check out the video review I have put together:

    There are lots of good stoves in the $5 - $20 range from China. I have the one in that setup (not the pots) it works but the burner is so small that it concentrates all the heat in a single spot (ok for boiling water, not so much for heating/cooking food). The spreaders that supports the pot is also very small, when using "regular" size pots it's tricky to keep it centred.

    I ended up buying a different style, very similar to $100 MSR's but about $10 shipped from China (slow), It nicely supports a larger pot and the burner ring has a 3" diameter.

    I buy all of this sort of stuff on eBay. You can also buy just those nice looking pots in the kit for about $10 if you don't need the stove or want a different one.

        I have the little stove that comes in the orange plastic box and I'm quite happy with it. I really don't see the point of spending 4x more for a brand name that's made in Korea. Sometimes I wax on about my little SVEA 123 but I don't miss the weight of it and associated fuel - not to mention the sometimes "exciting" lighting procedure.
