The Trangia Spirit Burner is highly versatile and user friendly alcohol burner. The simmer ring allows the burner to adjust from full to simmer and extinguishes the flame when closed completely. The twist on cap with o-ring seals the burner so you don't have to empty unused fuel between uses and prevents evaporation - less fuel wasted means less fuel you have to carry. Includes burner, simmer ring, and screwcap.

These are almost indestructible, a beautifully simple design that has lasted. You pour a small amount of meths into the reservoir, screw the top on and stick it in your pocket - they don't leak. When lit, they take a minute to settle down, then act like a gas ring. Cheap, ever lasting, fuel is cheap, functional. For anyone thinking of getting one of these for the first time, do be aware that the Trangia is just a burner, you have to support your pan / kettle on something additional. Generally used with army mug / windproof shield / stand kit, I find these too large and so use my Trangia with a Honey Stove which, combined, makes a brilliant setup comparable with any gas affairs my mates carry. Obviously you can make a stand out of rocks, sticks, small hole in the ground, etc.
Meths is about £2 a bottle and that lasts me about 5 weekends, maybe more.
One tip to try is adding 10% water to your meths, it makes for a hotter, cleaner burn and eliminates soot deposits.
Just running some real life tests as I have never timed things before and a full Trangia just burned for an amazing 36 mins and boiled over half a pint of water (a standard mug) in 4:30 mins on pure meths and 3:50 using 90%/10%, both using the Honey Stove 4 plate configuration with the Trangia on the mid setting.
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.
Trangia burners last for ever. They are slow, need a priming pan mid winter, can be a pain to get to simmer and there are lighter stoves out there now. Pepsi can penny stoves are about as cheap and light as you can get, and if you build them properly are darn good too.
This is just the burner. It needs a pan rack and wind shield as well. I bought this as a backup/second unit for my Swedish Military kit so if one burner runs out, just light the second one, transfer the wind shield across and carry on. I could/should plan my fuelling better :-)
For making your own cookset, either a Trangia or Penny stove is perfect. Lets face it, there is nothing to go wrong. I don't do backpacking or bicycle touring, but do enjoy solo touring on my motorbike and to me, there is nothing more pleasant than being in the middle of nowhere with silence as company, watching the blue flame.
The forced relaxed pace over a gas stove adds to it for me. Add to that they almost never go wrong, are cheap to fuel and as simple as a stone.
Yes, I am a zealot. Those who used to use them and went to gas only regale me with tales of how good theirs was. Gas users mock us, but remain fascinated by our stoves and the rituals we perform to make our brew. More than once I've had "I've got to get one of those"
Come, join us on the slow side and see why we reject so many whizzo turbo flames having tried them and keep returning to our beloved Trangia and Optimus Primus type 96 stoves.
