From the manufacturer
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.
Quality and environment
At Trangia, quality includes dedicated development in all areas of our business, including choice of material, manufacturing, design, performance and safety. The Trangia stove has always been produced in the mountains of Jämtland in the north of Sweden. With all parts of the company gathered in one place, close to nature, we can ensure that every detail in our camping stoves stands for true quality. Environmental thinking is self-evident to those of us who live close to nature. Our manufacturing is therefore environmentally optimised, including the water used during surface treatment undergoing total purification before leaving the factory. Packaging is manufactured from environmentally approved cardboard and is 100 % recyclable. The cardboard is included in the German 'Der Grüne Punkt' system.
The Trangia Spirit Burner is the most versatile and user friendly alcohol burner on the market. Besides having a track record of reliable service that spans decades, it also has a couple of uniquely useful features. 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 cap w/ o-ring.

The cap does an excellent job of keeping any unused fuel still in the stove for packing away - no leaks so far.
Cold weather lighting was not a problem to get it primed and working quickly as the little ridged ring around the jets holds just enough fuel to help that along.
The only thing I would change is that the clone's simmer ring has a wire handle that makes it easy to drop on top of the stove when it is inside the windscreen. The Trangia does not have this and therefore I have to pull the pot off the pot frame and even detach the pot stand/wind screen from the base before I can drop the simmer ring on to either use simmer or to snuff out the stove.
Regardless, this is a top notch addition to any cooking kit. I see it being used and useful for many years. This is a great value for a dependable stove.
The stove could hardly be simpler to operate. Just fill it up with your preferred alcohol fuel (I recommend yellow Heet, which burns cleaner and seemingly hotter, not to mention cheaper per ounce, than 91%, 99%, or denatured alcohol) and light it aflame with a match, lighter, or fire rod. The stove takes approximately 30 to 60 seconds to warm up enough to vaporize the fuel and burn effectively at full intensity. At full flame, the stove will burn for 23 minutes on 100 mL of yellow Heet, and then gradually die down over the subsequent 60 to 90 seconds. At normal room temperature, the heat at full flame will bring 1L of water to a rolling boil in under 9 minutes, or 1 cup (8 oz.) of water to a boil in under 4 minutes. While not as good as some butane rocket-style stoves, this is exceptional performance for its weight, and more than adequate for all but the most impatient backcountry cooks.
Using the simmer cap, the Trangia becomes even more flexible and its burn time can be extended by quite a large margin. With the simmer cap fully open, the flame remains hot enough to maintain a rolling boil in 1L of water, and closing up the opening in the cap shrinks the flame progressively down to something approximating a low simmer (ideal for cooking more delicate, easily scorched foods like eggs). When closed all the way, the cap becomes an effective snuffer. Just drop it over the flame and it instantly extinguishes, allowing you to control and preserve fuel remarkably easier than with virtually any other alcohol stove on the market (excepting knock-offs that are patterned after the Trangia's clever design).
On my digital scale, the Trangia (WITH the screwcap and snuffer/simmer cap) weighs in at 111 grams. A homemade popcan stove can be half or even a third of that weight, which may matter to some people, but in my opinion the added versatility, convenience, and robustness of this stove makes it well worth its weight.
In my case, I typically cook with wood in a small Emberlit titanium box stove (the kind that easily separates and folds flat). In many parks, a box wood stove is considered an enclosed stove and can be used even when there is a ban on open fires; however, there are times in very wet weather when gathering dry tinder to get the wood stove started can be inconvenient to downright frustrating, and when traveling with my kids, it helps to have the Trangia to fall back on for instant access to a cook fire, as well as none of the smoke or wood supply management required to cook with wood. In that kind of back-up/convenience role, this stove is wonderful because thanks to the screwcap, I don't need to carry a spare fuel bottle on most shorter trips. With 100 mL of yellow Heet stored inside the stove, I get adequate burn time to boil more than 3L of water, which is plenty for several meals. And it fits so nicely inside the Emberlit box stove that I also don't need to carry a separate windscreen or pot holder. They just pair together so well.
All in all, I highly recommend this stove for anyone who wants a simple, durable, reliable, and unusually versatile alcohol stove. And I recommend yellow Heet to minimize the fumes and soot that other types of alcohol fuels can generate.
