what cooking stove to buy ?

Hi there !

I am half of my trip around South America and I have to improve my cooking gear. Currently I am using a stove manufactured from 2 s metal cups and it runs with alcohol.
In one week I will be in Santiago Chile and what stove do you recommend me to buy ?

Thank you !

If you can find one- I'd recommend a Coleman dual fuel (533). Dual fuel as in being able to use unleaded petrol . It's amazingly robust, and heats things up really quickly- so no hanging about for that much needed coffee!

I like the Trangia stove set. It all packs together neatly and is lightweight. It burns methylated spirits.

You also get different burners for the Trangia, which include a gas and a multi-fuel. I prefer the gas one, as it's much hotter and easier to regulate temperature. If I travel where there's likely to be a problem with gas, I'd use the other types

My vote also goes for the Trangia system, but I have also used these stoves since I was a boy scout. I realy love the silence of the spirit burner, but i guess that the multi-fuel bottle is great to bring on longer trips. Trangia, however, is maybe hard to find in santiago...

My friend has the coleman (above link) is very good but is selling it now because gets a lot of space in the panniers and the fuel smells in everything that you have inside...

The best is a fuel stove with a bottle that you can put it outside of the pannier!so you have more space available inside and without fuel smells...

An Msr whisperlight Universal is the best because run with kerosene, diesel AND gas cannisters but most bikers and international travelers prefer the petrol out of their tanks!

I bought the Primus Omnifuel. Runs just about any fuel and is very compact. It's ability to simmer was the reason I chose it over the Whisperlight equivalent.

I use an MSR Whisperlite, Universal. Runs on just about anything flammable, and has been super dependable, very light and takes up almost no space. I love it!

I have never been able to get my omnifuel to simmer on any fuel. so have been back to using my little £10 15 years old gas stove for the last 2-3 years.

I do mean simmer though, ie for near an hour making a curry/casserole/stew just very slow occasional plop.

was considering using some sort of pot raising device, but I might as well carry a woodburning cooker and firewood so went back to the little gaz stove.

I was a Boyscout too. I just love this system, so simple and effective. Everything in one place when it is packed.

I used the trangia 27 on my tour to Mongolia last year. I added the multifuel burner from trangia, it works fine with 80oktan

Just stay away from the non stick editions, the coating gets grinded off after rattling around in the panniers.
