It is time for another gasifer stove review and today we have the Canway Camping Stove.

First off, I love stoves like this as I have always been interested in the design; this one was sent by a viewer to review and I happily accepted the challenge.

….

Pros :

Easy setup.
Stable!
Very good quality – no flex at all- impressive for $20

With good materials, it takes roughly 3 minutes for the gasification process to start and the stove is ready to go.

Wind resistant.

Thanks to the size, it can burn for a very long time and it is easier to simmer with than some wood stoves.

Coals will stay hot very a very long time

Legs have been sturdy so far with no bending or flexing.

Good quality mesh bag.

Centralized flame


Cons :

Heavy

Legs are stiff to move which I actually like but time will tell if they become very hard to move which I can see happening.

Smokey until it gets going; it’s a wood stove….so I’m taking this off of the con list.  If you don’t like soot and smoke, don’t use a wood stove!

General cons to wood stoves like this;

Cons - this takes longer overall than my Optimus. I enjoy the ritual of building the fire and tending it, but if you’re with impatient people or needing to get on the trail quickly this may not be for you. And you also have to wait for the stove to cool after use.

- I may not be able to use this in the parks if a burn ban is in effect

- it does get soot on your pots

- you have to tend the fire and keep it fed and hot



Summary :

For the money, there isn’t much to complain about; hey, it’s only $20!

Want to improve the design; drimmeling some of this material would make feeding slightly easier
