Koro titanium gas canister stove

The Alpkit Koro is a lightweight remote canister gas stove at a sensible price made in China for the Nottingham based company. Based on high altitude research and constructed using titanium it provides a stable and reliable burner at temperatures well below zero.

 

What the manufacturers say:

An expedition needs plenty of firepower and the Koro remote canister stove has this in plenty. But this is no gas guzzler, a brass pre-heat tube ensures the fuel is vaporised by the time it reaches the burner. The result is a constant and controllable flow of gas which reduces spluttering and works better in freezing conditions. 

A good stove is an efficient stove and the wide burner head spreads heat evenly across your pan base. Koro also integrates tightly with our Concertina windshield which can wrap closely around the stove without the risk of overheating the gas canister. This will reduce gas consumption and reduce boiling times in windy conditions. The advantage of a gas canister stove over a multi-fuel stove or liquid fuel stove is the ability to control the flame with a spin of a knob allowing you to cook rather than incinerate.

Based upon a design originally developed for use on Everest expeditions we have exclusively re specified the stove body in titanium to make it as light as possible. 3 retractable legs ensure the stove remains stable even with a decent group sized cooking pot but can still fold away into a compact size for stowability.
