The MSR PocketRocket is the most popular of all the canister stoves on the market. It’s lightweight, with a very simple design that makes it durable, and easy to use. The heat is adjustable, and when you're done, the three pot supports fold up to store the stove in a case that fits in the palm of your hand. The PocketRocket will continue to faithfully boil water and cook simple meals for anyone who needs a foolproof, compact stove.
If you are looking for a compact and super efficient cooking system, the Jetboil Flash is an excellent option. The Jetboil cooking system comes with a 1L cooking pot; that attaches to the stove burner to prevent spills. An included tripod attaches to the fuel canister to give the cooking system a wider more stable base. This integrated system along with a removable insulation cozy and lid makes the Jetboil one of the fastest stove to boil water. The burner also features push button ignition. All of these components fit perfectly inside the pot when done, creating an extremely compact cooking system.
If you are planning on doing more than boiling water and making simple dishes, Jetboil also offers the wider shaped Jetboil MiniMo Cooking System, that is better for simmering and cooking more complex meals.

This means you need less fuel to boil water and won't need to worry about the burner getting blown out. The pot is sized so that it can hold the stove and one fuel canister for storage.
