MicroRegulator Stove

(3 customer reviews)


The Micro Regulator stove has “proven to be an outstanding little canister stove for three season backpacking and it’s the stove I usually bring on a backpacking trips unless I’m trying out something new. Despite being small and ultralight, this stove really packs a wallop in the BTU department (11,000 BTU), can be used to simmer 1-pot meals, and can be easily matched with a variety of other best-of-breed cook system components.” (Philip Werner, Section Hiker)

SOTO’s original micro regulator stove maintains a consistent output in cold weather. Proprietary “stealth lgniter” installed. Invisible part is installed inside the burner post and head for increased simplicity and improved ignition. The system also protects the igniter. “Hyper surface Burner Head” effeciently heats pan. Excellent for cooking. Case Included.

“Overall, it’s one of the very nicest canister fuel stoves I’ve ever used, especially given its compact size and light weight.” (Mike Curry, Backpack Gear Test)

The MicroRegulator Stove uses the Micro Regulator valve system.

    Have had this stove for years. It’s never failed. Packs small, light weight, even and powerful flame for the size.

    Used this stove for about 4 years now. Always works, simmers well, really cranks out heat until the canister is completely empty. I love it and my friends love. We always take my stove, and several friends have bought their own after using mine. I think it is well worth the extra money over the cheaper options.

    I have been using the same MicroRegulator Soto Stove since mid-way through a 2013 PCT thru-hike, hiking about 800+ miles or so every year since with it. The stove is a beast. I had problems with the original one I purchased above 10,000′. Soto mailed me a fresh one without flinching — that’s the one which has put up with so much abuse over several subsequent (more) rugged thru-hikes, on occasion even boiling the water that probably kept me alive in extreme cold. When people talk about other stoves, I think they’re wasting their time. This is barely heavier than the lightest similar competitor, and has a built in ignitor! No brainer. I’ve had ZERO trouble with the Piezo ignitor, and love having it in case my other fire-starting options fail. If they stop making this stove, and mine ever dies, I will likely cry.
