The Snowpeak LiteMax butane canister stove is an exercise in minimalism – just 1.9 ounces of titanium and steel, with a few rubber O-rings for safety's sake. No fuel line, no extra framework. The stove simply puts your cooker atop a small fuel canister. But the small stove still churns out more than 11,000 BTUs (and can do so for 45 minutes straight on a 100-gram fuel canister). The flame can be adjusted down to a whisper should you care to sauté rather than blast-boil, although the latter still happens in four minutes and 10 seconds for a full liter of water, even when we were at an elevation of 4,500 feet in the Washington Cascades.
