Stoves can be divided into three categories: gas, alcohol and pressurized stoves. Gas stoves are easy and clean to operate, and apart from winter use ea great choice for many situations. The smallest weigh less than 100 grams but larger models are available for use with larger groups of outdoor enthusiasts. Alcohol stoves are ecological, exceptionally reliable and quiet. When you choose a Trangia alcohol stove, you get two pots, a sturdy wind shelter and a frying pan in addition to the burner itself - not to mention the concept itself: for decades the Trangia has proven highly reliable in many conditions. Pressurized stoves thrive in cold conditions, and thanks to the availability of fuel they are common with world travellers. Using a pressurized stove takes a bit of practice but it pays off in the form of lots of power regardless of the conditions!
