An incredibly versatile burner that can turn even and old can of beans into a homely stove. A real classic bit of kit that has remained unchanged since when we first went camping way back when,
The Trangia Spirit Burner is the original reliable bullet proof meths burner from years back, which hasn't changed in any shape of form since it was first designed. Why? Because it does the job beautifully, so why should it?
Okay so at 120g it is 5 times heavier than most of our other burners, but it does have features which make it popular and reliability to keep us coming back.
It has a large reservoir, so the burn time is well over 20 minutes.
It is provided with a screw cap, which will seal the unit and any remaining fuel for transportation. (Not long term storage)
It also comes with a simmer ring, which allows a reduced heat to be output.
It is sturdy, solid and chunky and make from brass so will last for many years.
It fits perfectly in our Wild Woodgas Stove Mk11, giving alternative cooking fuels.
Using a flint and steel it is easy to light, and I've found a good puff will blow it out (although this isn't approved by Trangia). Failing that and inverted mug or dropping the closed simmer ring will starve the flame of Oxygen.
