The Trangia principle
The heart of the storm-proof stove system is the two-part windshield. The ventilation holes in the lower windshield are turned to face the wind to increase the oxygen supply to the burner. If the wind becomes too strong, the stove is turned to maintain the required flame. The Trangia spirit burner runs on Tenol or methylated spirits which are low cost, safe and readily available. The combined frypan/lid can be put on top of the pan to speed up heating and save fuel. The stove stands stable, with the pan on the supports recessed into the upper windshield. The supports are turned upwards when the frypan is used. The Trangia stove can also be used with a gas, multifuel or gel burner, which all can be found in The Trangia range of accessories.

By Dale Thomas on March 13, 2016
For these shorter trips I have been using an MSR PocketRocket and a GSI HA Kettle. It works but the stove is noisy and unstable, the various parts don't nest together so they rattle and take up a bunch of room in my pack and I can't ever figure out how much fuel is still in the canister so I often bring a spare which usually ends up coming home unopened. I don't travel "ultralight" but I also don't like carrying unnecessary fuel.
So, I picked up a "scratch and dent" Tranagia 28 here on Amazon for a good price. The stove itself is the same as that in the 27 - a bulletproof, time tested design that can easily carry enough fuel for two quick meals (beans and rice type dinner and instant oats for breakfast) and 2 large cups of coffee/tea/hot chocolate. The pot that comes with the 28 is a bit smaller than the inner pot of the 27 but is still large enough to contain a large can of Campbell's soup. It will also hold enough water to make for one American size cup of coffee and 2 packs of instant oatmeal at one go. The fry/pan lid is a good size to cook two eggs....and the eggs didn't stick! (If you ever want to scrub dishes try making eggs in an HA kettle.)
After using all three products: I wasn't ever very happy with the PocketRocket. It's too noisy and unstable and will soon be listed on CL. The GSI Kettle is OK but really limits your cooking to boiling some water. I will keep it...for now. The Trangia 28 (this product) is great for short tours/hikes of a few days duration or if trying to stay really light for distance or speed. I tend to cycletour at a comfortable pace and distance so the 27 will stay in my right front pannier for longer tours (4+ nights). The 28 fits in my backpack very nicely (without rattling!) and is far more useful than the PocketRocket/kettle setup ever was. So, the 28 is my "weapon of choice" for all hikes and shorter (1 - 4 nights) cycle tours.
If you are still considering buying something else, consider this: For about $30 you get a good size pot, nice fry pan, great stove, and decent windscreen/pot stand with the Trangia 28. The PocketRocket alone costs about $40 and you still have to buy a pot. For the Trangia, you can buy fuel at any hardware or automotive store as well as many gas stations and grocery stores in the US. The PocketRocket requires visiting a store that has a camping section. Thus, many whole towns don't have anywhere that sell PocketRocket/Jetboil fuel canisters. Ultralight gear (titanium pots and DIY alcohol cat stoves) might work for some folks but I like my food somewhere this side of charcoal and don't like unstable flaming things in the woods.
- Well designed and packs great
- One of the lightest sets around
- Minimalist, KISS principle
- Quality, rugged (brass stove) compared to other brands (aluminum stove),
- Non-stick pan makes it easy to clean, just remember to keep the round plastic it comes with to prevent it from scratches while packed
- $32, cheaper than other flimsy sets on the market
- Fits in backpack! If you have a large, medium, and smaller front compartments, this fits sideways in the middle compartment.
Would like to see:
- Snuff cap contain a folding handle but the pot handle tongs work fine
- Smaller design
- Spare o-rings
Overall I'm very pleased with this item. I've already used the first one over a dozen times and it hasn't degraded in performance at all. The stove itself will break-in and become better when used more often. The tongs hold down the items while packed inside so it doesn't clunk around. It has enough spare room to add mess kit wipes, folding spork and a small bottle of fuel.
Use the yellow heet, denatured alcohol, or everclear (if you can get it). I was using isopropyl alcohol for a while and it left a lot of soot. You can youtube the fuel comparisons and see that the yellow heet seems to be the most effective and cheap solution. The skinnier size bottle of the yellow heet also packs well in the backpack. If you get the big cans of denatured alcohol or big bottle of everclear, you will need to buy a bottle that is alcohol rated ($5 - $7) and usually leak... Yellow heet can be obtained from local stores for $5 for a 4 pack.
I wrote a review on an esbit set that I had to return because it was annoyingly loud and wasn't backpack worthy.

This stove runs on denatured alcohol or methylated spirits, which is available to buy at any hardware store. Running on Meths has it's advantages and disadvantages. The advantages are: It's quiet - nearly silent in fact. Great for that "Getting back to nature" experience. The fuel is cheap. No empty gas canisters to throw away. You always know how much fuel you've got left (Just by looking). The flame, once lit, is *really* hard to blow out. The disadvantages are: It can be hard to start in near freezing conditions, the flame is virtually invisible, there isn't much energy in Meths as there is in gas canisters, so you can expect to double you cooking times compared to gas.
This Mini-Trangia Cookest contains a Trangia Stove (lid & simmer ring), Stove stand or "Windscreen", a aluminium pot, a non-stick frying pan (with a small plastic sheet for protection) and a pot gripper. It is all neatly self contained as the frying pan lid clips over the top of the bowl and everything else is contained snugly inside. Providing the lid is put on correctly it will stay put as two tabs hold it securely in place. The actual burner has the usual screw thread top and simmer ring. This makes it very easy to store and carry. There is no strap like on the larger Trangias, however it's not really necessary on this model. There is space inside to store extra small items like matches, a lighter or a cleaning sponge.
Setting up is simple. Fill the brass stove up with alcohol / meths, place it in the wind screen, where it is securely held in place and then light it. Put the bowl on top of the windscreen and use the frying pan as a lid on top of the bowl to help keep the heat in. To simmer, adjust the ring to the required diameter and place it over the burner. There is an art to using this simmer ring and you may need to practice. Once you have finished cooking, close the opening on the simmer ring (if it's already on the stove you'll need to flip it off first with the grippers). Drop the closed simmer ring on the burner to stop the flames. **Once cool** you can either just screw the cap back on to save the fuel for later or pour it out into your fuel bottle.
Using this out in the field is really simple and it fits easily into any day or rucksack. Why only 4 stars then?
Firstly - you'll need a proper wind shield in anything other than dead calm conditions. This stove doesn't have adequate protection from the wind, unlike it's larger versions. A sheet of foil / titanium will do.
Secondly - Although the pan gripper is adequate and is able t hold a full pot of water with no trouble it does feel "rough" when gripping the bowl and frying pan. I feel that if you don't take your time in making sure the placement is right then there is a chance you'll scrape the non-stick coating.
If you're looking for a nice compact stove for hiking / walking / solo camping then this is ideal.
I have taken this out on several backpacking trips and am very pleased. Great for heating tins or vacuum packed
meals, frying eggs, bacon or bangers and making a brew. Being a spirit stove, IMHO more reliable than gas burners, and like most Swedish made gear, rugged and built to last. Be minded though that boiling time is slower, but I can live with that. Capacity wise it's only suitable for the solo camper or hiker unless you are both on low calorie diets.
Only one caveat, it does need a windshield unless you can find a very sheltered spot or want to burn a lot of fuel.
No withstanding this, a good buy and comes recommended.
I've cooked a one man fry up on it, and can say that the pans provided are perfect for one person. Overall, it's my favorite Cookset!!!!
You do need a separate windshield - I have one that goes all the way round and it then is a lot more effective even in calm weather as it reflects the heat back to the stove - especially if you use larger pans. With that and a foil pie tin as a separate lid, I was able to boil water in the pot (using the lid to keep the heat in) and heat some croissants on top underneath the pie tin in a sort of dutch oven.
I also use the pot grip to place the simmer ring on the stove to snuff it out. That is far easier than trying to place it by hand.
