Primus Express

This stove weighs 86g (+ gas); boil time 2 min 57 sec to 4 min 40 sec; folding design makes this compact when packed; 13cm diameter pan support; piezo ignition version available for £30. But not as stable as lower-profile stoves; best boil time is only available with a fresh gas canister; pan supports slightly springy so pans can wobble when boiling.Verdict
An excellent lightweight and compact stove for short, lightweight backpacking trips
