World’s Smallest Camp Stoves?


World’s Smallest Camp Stoves?

I recently saw this thing on my Facebook feed. It’s an itty-bitty little gas stove that fits in the palm of your hand.

It seems like it’d be too small to work well, but I’ve seen one boil water in less than 4 minutes.

The small support arms might be problematic if you use a full-size cook pot.

It attaches to a mini butane tank, and only weighs 45 grams (1.6 ounces).

The valve handle is made of wire and is foldable.

A quick search told me that these little things have been around for a couple years now; here’s a video review of one. This guy liked it pretty well.

The one I saw on Facebook (pictured here) was from The Gear Gods and is priced at $12.99.

I found a similar one on Amazon for $15.90 (prime), where it’s rated at 4 stars. Some reviewers did have trouble with the scrawny arms that hold your cup or pot.

What do you think of these little burners? Worth the trouble, or too small to be useful?
