I’d just like to start off by just how COOL I think this stove is. It truly is magnificent. It packs away in to a tiny little set and weighs only 330g, perfect for hikers and backpackers when weight is a major thing to consider. It is so versatile, it has a saucepan and a frying pan and it allows you to boil water and fry at the same time if you choose. The handle detaches and snaps on to both which helps save space. If you haven’t already, please take 5 minutes to watch the video above as I think you will be really impressed. You can see the non-stick pan in action.
The stove runs on denatured alcohol which is reasonably easy to come by at any outdoor or camping store, or just do a Google search for it.
It also comes complete with a wind deflector which according to reviews from previous buyers is capable of withstanding some of the strongest winds which is exactly what you need standing at the top of a mountain!
It is so easy to set up and is made from metal which makes it really simple to clean.
My one word of warning, and I guess it goes without saying but allow time for it to cool down after use before putting it away. You could always just pour some cold water over it but this may be in short supply if you are travelling.
Final verdict? Brilliantly design and lives up to the Trangia reputation. I would not want to be without one in the wilderness.
