Trangia 25-2 UL Cookset with Kettle and Spirit Burner-Review

3-4 person stove with kettle,

ideal for group cooking or for larger meals. Ultralight stoves are 50% stronger than ordinary aluminium, less material is required and as a result are lighter. 25 Series stove with burner, 0.9 litre kettle, 22cm frying pan, pan handle, simmering ring, screw cap, upper and lower windshields

The heart of the storm-proof Trangia stove system is the two-part windshield. The ventilation holes in the lower windshield are turned to face the wind to increase the oxygen supply to the burner. If the wind becomes too strong, the stove is turned to maintain the required flame. The Trangia spirit burner runs on alcohol-based fuels such as methylated spirits which are low cost, safe and readily available. The combined frying pan/lid can be put on top of the pan to speed up heating and save fuel. The stove stands stable, with the pan on the supports recessed into the upper windshield. The supports are turned upwards when the frying pan is used. The Trangia stove can also be used with a gas, multi-fuel or gel burner, which all can be found in the Trangia range of accessories

With or without a kettle?

All stoves in the larger 25 Series are available with a 0.9L kettle. The smaller 27 Series stoves are available with a 0.6L kettle.

Which base material?

Ultralight/UL Aluminium is lighter and 50% stronger than standard aluminium and has superb thermal conductivity.

Non-Stick is available in the frying pans and pots.

Hard-Anodised/HA pots and pans receive a treatment making them hard and scratch resistant without adding weight.

Duassol is a laminate of aluminium for conductivity on the outside and stainless steel on the inside for increased durability.

Which burner?

The Spirit Burner uses alcohol-based fuels such as methylated spirits. Easy to use thanks to the simple construction, a filling (max. 2/3 of the burner) burns for approx. 25 min, boiling 1L of water in 10 mins.

The Gas Burner is easy to use, has a fast-boiling time and keeps the pots soot free. Boils 1L of water in about 3.5 mins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bought these for a festival that didn’t allow gas burners. While I could’ve built up something similar from various camping bits, this way this all fits together compactly makes it far superior. In use the fuel lasts for ages. Since getting it, I’ve added a fuel bottle and official cover. Just a top-quality product. My only regret is not going for the non-stick version. That’s not going to get a point reduction though, because it’s perfect for what it is

5.0 out of 5 stars It’s a classic cooking device that will never let you down. Works in all weathers and simple liquid fuel to be used. One of the safest fuels to use.
Bought as a replacement for one that’s still functioning after 30 years apart from one replacement kettle and one burner.
My parents have one for any power cuts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not the thin bendy metal, so quite robust. Handle has sharp edges out of the box.

5.0 out of 5 stars   A classic. Offered at a great price compared to big outdoor shops.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great for camping and generous size for 2. Kettle enough for 2 cups. Good size of Trangia and although heavier than gas it cooks more easily in wind and is more robust. Probably worth the extra weight on expeditions as pots and pans included.


Great all-round product that will last for years to come.
