Comments about Liberty Vargo Triad Titanium Alcohol Stove:

I got this little stove mostly to play with and use in cooking demonstrations. Since it is alcohol fueled, it heats slowly. Using a small titanium pot (1.5 pints), it brings water to a boil faster. When using it be sure to screen from the wind or it will heat even slower. I like the weight savings and have now used it on several hikes to heat tea water. Not as fast as propane, etc, but it does the job with 1/4 the weight.

This stove is not for everyone, because it does have a learning curve. I would recommend it to some of my hiking friends, but not to others. You will have to make your own decision about it for yourself.

      Comments about Liberty Vargo Triad Titanium Alcohol Stove:

      I bought my vargo from Campmor in '06 and have used it exclusively for solo hiking since with a snow peak cook set. I eat 2 hot meals/day - heating 12-16 oz of water to rehydrate dehydrated meals - plus water for coffee/hot cocoa/soup as well as washing. I usually carry 16 oz of denatured fuel and 2 esbit type fuel tabs just in case. I'm very frugal & careful with fuel - blowing the stove out as soon as water is hot enough - I do not boil water all the way as I used treated/filtered water & almost boiling is plenty hot to rehydrate. I've only used a fuel tab once. My stove legs are looser now - but I just choose carefully where to put it. For the weight, simplicity and ease - it can't be beat. My vargo is a permanent part of my 25# kit. My previous stove was an MSR international which I bought from campmor in 97 and still use for car-camping.

      Comments about Liberty Vargo Triad Titanium Alcohol Stove:

      I've tried lots of gas stoves, Brasslite alcohol stove, even made my own alcohol stoves from cans, and this is my favorite. Fits inside my Snow Peak 1 liter pot with room for the fuel bottle. Impresses my friends who've never tried alcohol.
      One caveat -- measure carefully, both the water (up to a liter) and the alcohol (I use a squeeze bottle to drip it in). 45 cc denatured alcohol will boil a liter of cold mountain stream water.

      Vargo Titanium Stove Review

        Comments about Liberty Vargo Triad Titanium Alcohol Stove:

        Been using it for two years now. Everyone is impressed by its small size - packs down to the size of a deck of cards. A small cup gets filled with fuel (holds about 3 tablespoons) then a little more gets poured over the burner as primer before lighting. You have to work kinda fast since the primer fuel will evaporate quickly- especially if the stove is already warm from a previous burn. Its not super high power - boils 4 cups of water in about 8 minutes- which is good because you only get about 8-10 minutes of burn time from a "fillup" of fuel. The tiny size means the boil pot is not on a great platform so make sure you are on a very stable and flat surface. I use a GSI duo minimalist cook pot - which fits over the burner nicely but creates a bit top heavy arrangement while cooking. A windscreen is required for use in even the slightest of breezy conditions or it will blow out or just not keep the flame under the boil pot. Best use is for simple heat to boil type recipes since there is no burner adjustment.
        Plusses: size, weight, simplicity, clean burning, quiet.
        Negatives: limited burn time, refueling can be messy - easy to waste fuel, must wait a minute for unit to cool down before refueling.

        Comments about Liberty Vargo Triad Titanium Alcohol Stove:

        The big negative in this product is the tri-foot base. If you're setting this up on anything bit solid flat surface, it will collapse. The legs over time will begin to loosen and no longer have that tight fit when packing it back up. Having them loose will result in them folding up under weight and will result in the stove tipping and spilling fuel.

          this stove can also burn 90 percent alcohol but that will smoke your pot. Use the denatured and after about 60 sec after u lite it, give the stove a lil tweek on one leg to help set the burners in to gear, I get water to boil in 4-5 here in okla, who cares if takes 5-10 min to boil water,your camping or hikeing, you dont have to punch in or out at the time clock

          Im not a fan of alcohol stoves mainly due to the amount of time it takes to boil water compared to other options. I love how small the stove is but due to fuel usage if you were hiking for a week the amount of fuel you would have to carry would override the size and weight of the stove. This stove is extremely simple with no moving parts to break down and get clogged, overall well built. This stove would boil water in about 6-7 minutes on a warm day, it is also a must to use a windscreen as to increase efficiency. My other stoves will boil water under 3 minutes.

            I love it. I cook for 2 and can do it most of the time on one fill. It did take me some time to get use to though. I originally got it for a 2 week trip car camping in spain. After 1 1/2 weeks we ran out of fuel but if did really well. I use it mainly for reheating meals like chili and rehydrating meals, it works great for that. I use it with a Snow Peak Titanium 3 piece pot set witch is small, a ½-liter pot, and a ¾-liter pot with a lid/pan. I wouldn't wont to use it with anything much bigger. I would say it is good for a single camper and can be used for 2. It is one of the smallest and lightest thing I can imagen. The fuel can be a little more weight though.

              Awesome for what it is - a no-moving-parts-so-it-cannot-malfunction means of boiling water for backpacking meals. Amazingly lightweight, and does the trick. Perfect for trips where pack weight matters by the ounce, or when you just want to travel light to annoy your friends. Gotta make room for the Platy full of vino somehow.

                  You can partial burn the the alcohol and pour the remainder back into your bottle. Just make sure the fuel is cool.

              • Q:

                How is the stability of the stove when you boil water? My experience with homemade alcohol stoves is that because they are so light they are then very top heavy when they have a pot of boiling water on them. This looks very stable but im just inquiring before I purchase.

                  A:

                  As long as the pot was not out sized for this stove it will be stable. A 4 qt pot would be too big. Also would take a long time to bring to a boil.

                  When folded out, the stove held my Pinnacle Soloist pot with about a 1/4" around to spare. When filled with water, it weighed the pot down and didn't travel upon boiling or seem like it would fall over due to instability.
