The Ultralight Aluminium 27-1 cooker system from Trangia is about as simple and reliable as it gets when it comes to lightweight cook systems for hiking and trekking.
Constructed from lightweight aluminium, with a compact and space saving design, the 25/2 is perfect size for a couple or lone wolf. Easy to use and set up – the 27/2 comes with two saucepans, and a frypan, so you aren’t limited to rehydrated meals. It also comes with a pot grip, which provides an effective way to handle this system without burning your hands.
This stove has a two-part windshield for keeping your flame safe from the bitterly cold wind, and an easy to light spirit burner with a simmer ring to control and extinguish the flame. Simple, reliable and made with an eye for quality – the Trangia 27-1 lightweight aluminium stove system is perfect for the minimal hiker or couple.
Quite expensive for what it is, but then I suppose we are all used to things made in developing countries by people not being paid a fair wage.
I have used the stove half a dozen times already. The following are my thoughts/findings:
- More powerful than I imagined - have no worries getting enough heat out of it to boil water or cook food
- Burner soots up the bottom of pans in you use straight metho. A few drops of water in the mix seems to alleviate this
- The supplied carry strap will melt onto the aluminium if you are silly enough (like me) to allow it to remain in contact with the bottom part while you are cooking
- I've already managed to scratch that brown paint on the simmer ring by trying to pick it up with the supplied grabbing handle while hot
- I've found said simmer ring to be a bit awkward to use
So a lot of this is probably user error. To me it's not a perfect device so I can't give 5 stars. But I imagine it is hard to beat. I am glad I purchased the stove and it hasn't let me down yet.
Cooking time improved with frypan on top of saucepan and a lot less fuel used than envisaged.
Works really well for such a compact cooker. All pieces are of a high quality and seem like they will last a lifetime. We had it cooking next to a Gasmate stove, and although the flame gets some decent heat, you definitely compromise on cooking time with the Trangia. Well worth it though.
Only use it a few times,but I like the 2 pots and a fry pan to cook with,not as quick as gas but i would think more reliable.
Great unit, great price, fast delivery. Snowys is the best.
looking to compare difference between 27-1 and 27-8
We don’t stock the 27-8 at the moment, but we can get in it for you if you like as a special order. We can give you a quote over the phone, or you can send us an email at email@example.com.
The main difference between the 27-8 and 27-1 is that ultralight aluminium. On the other hand, the 27-8 comes a combo of ultralight aluminium and hard anodised aluminium and has a kettle whereas the 27-1 doesn’t. You can check out the whole 27 series on Trangia's website side by side here if that helps.
The anodised surface is going to be easier to clean and more scratch-resistant, so it’s more hardwearing than ultralight aluminium.
Do you stock the Hard Anodised versions of the 27 series? We are hoping for something a little quicker to clean (might save on water that way when out on the tracks!). Also, do you stock the gas cooker attachment?
Hi Emmett, we are hoping to get the entire Trangia range online as soon as possible, but we don’t currently stock the Hard Anodised 27-1 stove or cooker attachment. I’ve looked into this for you, and we can get the Hard Anodised 27-1 stove for you at a competitive price, which would take about 2 weeks. The gas cooker is not approved for use in Australia so we can’t make that available at this time. We’d love to help you out with this so please give us a call on 1300 914 007 so we can follow this through with more detail.
I have bought from you before.i would like to know how much cost to send to Fremantle WA?
