I’ve found that the Trangia 27-3 Ultralight Stove Set (ad) has become quite popular with our readers recently, and so I thought I’d put together a quick review.

Product Description:

The Trangia 27-3 Ultralight Stove Set (ad) is designed to cook a meal for one to two people and to be easy to carry in the wilderness. Made from ultralight aluminum, the set allows heat to conduct uniformly ensuring that the food doesn’t burn. The durable and lightweight saucepans (5 7/8 inches and 5 3/4 inches in diameter) and frying pan (7 1/4 inches in diameter) weighs only 1.63 lbs. The Trangia 27-3 Ultralight Stove Set includes a burner, a pan grip and finally a strap to help you carry the set.

Why It’s Awesome:

This stove uses alcohol, which is similar to cooking with natural gas. This stove set also is completely self-contained, which makes it easy to pack up and carry with you on camping or hiking trips.

What Could Be Better:

Considering all things, the price, quality, and portability of this stove, it’s difficult to anything wrong with it. I personally would prefer it to be just a little bit bigger, but I think this is a great stove for most individuals or couples. If you don’t think it makes enough food, you can just make your food in two batches. Carrying around anything bigger than this might be a pain.

I highly recommend the Trangia 27-3 Ultralight Stove Set, which you can purchase on Amazon here (ad).
