I have many stoves, in the spring and fall I mostly use my jetboil and a long plastic REI spoon for freeze dried meals, I like my meals easy with no dishes to do, some times I'll use my esbit for the lighter trips, in the winter I pull a sled so I bring the dragon fly and the group brings two cofee perkulators one for water the other for coffee and a 711 extream brew as an insulted bowl for food and starbucks tumbler for drinks, and I always have a bic in my kit and one hanging on my pack (fire is a life saver) and a friend Jeff made me a cozy for freeze dried meals that works pretty good.
