    I bought a couple cheap burners off of Ebay a few weeks back. Last night I used the larger one to cook a canteen cup meal on. And I love it. Granted, it was its maiden voyage, so I don't have a lot of experience with it, but I've watched enough videos to know that cooking on a butane canister burner can be a balancing act. Especially when it comes time to stir. My canteen cup was rock solid on this burner.

    I paid $7.46 for it (shipped) and it looks like they have gone up to 9.75. Another source might be cheaper.

    Anyway, no affiliation. I just think it's a great little burner. It dials down low, the slight wind didn't blow it out, no leaks and it has a larger diameter burner ring to help spread out the heat. And it opens up for larger pots or skillets. Plus it's design will accommodate Solo cups and that tall Stanley pot. It's a nifty little burner.

    I have lots of little stoves but all the mid to higher price range. I keep hearing good things about the cheapies though. You can probably score them even less on Wish.

    Yeah, not knocking the name brand stoves, but for someone just walking out his back door and not hiking the PCT, this seemed to do a pretty good job :)

    I've actually been thinking about picking up a BRS Titanium stove which is a cheap no name that has become pretty popular with Through Hikers on the AT, PCT and similar. It's very light, works great, and simple. I recommended one to a friend and while I rarely use canister stoves I still kind of want one for $13 after checking his out.

    With my mld 475 and a brs my cook kit was 2.5oz for a 2 cup pot and stove.

    Figured I could spare the ounce and usually take my piezo starter stove.

    Lot of bang for buck as far as weight and comfort with these stoves.
