5.0 out of 5 stars Spot on for the festival cookset, 4 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Trangia Spirit Burner With Screwcap (Sports)
Bought this for Leeds Festival this year since they don't allow aerosol-based stoves in the camping grounds. The beauty of this bit of kit lies in its simplicity. It's made out of pressed brass, comes with a lid and, in this case, the little flame adjuster that you normally would have to buy seperately with the cheaper stoves. I'd looked at the full sets that don't require anything else to cook with (Google "Swedish Mess Kit" for a full kit) but decided I couldn't afford the lot.

There are some excellent tutorials out there on how to make pot stands and windshields for these burners, I found a Youtube search of "Trangia Stove DIY" provided some brilliant ideas on how to make your own cookset on the cheap.

Combining this cracking little burner with a home-made pot-stand/windshield, I had four cups of water on a rolling boil in about ten minutes, and could easily have warmed up a tin of beans, etc. in about five minutes.

Of course, you can buy the full kits, and I would certainly recommend Trangia's products for their quality. However, if you've got a bit of time on your hands, and want to save a bit of money, it only took an old paint-tin and half an hour with a drill to make a very reasonable stand/shield.

Very highly recommended, good robust little stove, very easy to use and very flexible in terms of how you want to set it up.
