    I've been using a pocket rocket for a couple years now and love it... Very small and lightweight and does a good job cooking for my purposes. Granted, I normally am only doing very minimal cooking, boiling water or water with some noodles...I haven't tried any culinary masterpieces yet. I took this stove out west this past summer and used it as my primary cooking stove while car camping and it did just fine for that as well. It fits in my Trek 1400 along with a fuel canister and my "spork," everything I need to cook...

    Is the pocket rocket stable when placing a pot on top of it?

    I still haven't decided yet but i have to order it today that way i can have it here by next weekend. I guess it's a good thing to try and decide over several good products. Whatever i do, i will take pictures and give impressions when i get it in.

    For the last few years I have been using a Hobo stove, no moving parts and no fuel to carry. Check it out here along with other types. http://zenstoves.net/Wood.htm

    I feel it is reasonably stable but would not go so far as to say I'm never concerned about it tipping over. It hasn't actually happened but I have been a little worried a time or two...

    Here is a picture of mine on a Deep Creek trip last summer...boiling some water...

    Is that a Big Agnes Seedhouse in the background? I have the Seedhouse SL1 and have been very happy with it.

    I think i just may go with the snowpeak gigapower. I found a good deal on a kit with the trek mug for not much more than the msr pocket rocket. I will let you know when i get it.

    On a side note Mocs123, i have the emerald mountain sl3 from big agnes and i love it. It's the best tent i've ever used.

    I like something that will boil water quickly. The weight might be an issue to some of you, but there again I don't need to carry guns, bee sting meds, bears spray, knifes, fire stater, or snake bite kits. Dinner is served

    Craig, I just carry my Coleman propane one burner with me everywhere I go. A little heavier nad space consuming, but hard as heck to tip over.
