I've had a few of the butane stove and they certainly win on the speed and cleanliness front.
I'd always read about metho stoves and liked the simplicity and lack of any moving parts,
so I picked up the Trangia and Clik-Stand. I guess you have to be careful with any type
of easily combustible fuel, but I actually feel safe using alcohol stoves.
I've never cook inside a tent with any type of stove - possibly in the front vestibule,
but never inside. It's actually very unlikely that I'd ever be out in conditions that
meant I'd have to bring the stove inside anyway!
There's a trip in the offing this weekend (if this sodding weather settles down), so
I should be able to give the stove a good try-out in the great outdoors at last!
