I use the Trangia burner only
What I really like about Trangia burner is that it contains enough fuel to boil a liter of water (give or take). Why is it that important? Simple: when I go on day hikes, it saves you the fuel container. Unlike gas stoves, where you are obliged to carry a canister, even if you need the stove for a few minutes. In the Trangia, the Alcohol sealed in the burner will do just what you need.
I usually carry it along with some home made pot holder and a small can that I use both for boiling the water and both for drinking. That's it!
The potholder is nothing more than a hardware mesh formed as a cylinder.
