Ditch the flask of stewed tea and make a fresh brew on the trail. Or go further with hot soup or nutritious one-pot wonder. When you’ve got a checkpoint to make, painstakingly assembling your cooking system isn’t always an option.
Brukit was built on the basis that sometimes you just really need to boil water or make food quickly. It’s efficient, fast, and simple.
An integrated system for fast boil times. A built-in heat exchanger and windshield minimises heat loss so your fuel goes that bit further.
All the Brukit’s bits can be stored inside its own pot, including a 100 g canister, so you have minimal components to juggle. The built-in Piezo ignitor makes lighting the Brukit faff-free; detachable rubberized handles and a neoprene cosy can be left on during cooking for easy handling. The included pan support makes the Brukit compatible with other pans too. Gas canister not included.
Heat it and eat it: it’s that simple!

Got this kit just before no time as yet to try it out but love what I see so for. The only thing is point out is I wish the bag was about 10mm bigger diameter and 20mm longer coz them n could get a 230g has to sit on top and inside the bag keeping it all together. Can't wait to use it
Always used an mat pocket rocket but I recently went out with my pal and tried his jetboil.
I was impressed that much I decided to invest in one but was aware of the brewkit so decided to go with it.
Got it last sleek and boiled a litre of water in just over 4 and a half minutes.
Well impressed so far
Excellent piece of kit
I've had my Brukit for a little over a year now, given it some solid use and I love it. Compact, convenient, well made, efficient. Realising that the Jetboil Grande coffee press is compatible was a gamechanger - now I can brew up fresh coffee on mountain tops! (And it's entertaining seeing Jetboil owners getting their knickers in a twist in t'interweb over how superior their twice-as-expensive boiler is, supposedly).
2.5 minutes to boil 500ml of water, wow! Never experienced anything so quick. So well priced compared to other brands to
Excellent Value & Fast Heating
Compared to a similar unit from another manufacturer (Mike Sierra Romeo) this is much less costly and just as good a quality if not better.
We used this in Ireland for cooking and heating water, as well as using the pot adapter for boiling coffee of a Belgian Biker we met camping beside us.
Great product from a very conscientious company, who even send a little hand-written note with any of your purchases.
I used it during a bikepacking trip for coffee in the morning and cooking in the evening for two persons. Very fast and gas saving. And I like the additional for pans
Great cook system, recommended.
Used my brukit for first time over camping/kayaking weekend was very impressed by boil time for cups of tea and meal cooking the amount of time boil time was outstanding, used with small jet boil canister after weekend had lots of gas left which was surprising, very grateful to have a hot drink in my hand as i was unprepared for cold night 1st class.
Best small stove I have ever used. Fast, efficient and economic on gas. Beats my mate's J#####l into a cocked hat!!
Great piece of kit
Just received the Brukit. Looks, feels, en works great just like other Alpkit equipment. Pretty lightweight as well, will be coming on many bikepacking trips to come. Just a bit gutted that I ordered it last week and see that this week it is in the sale...
Great bit of kit, well built, robust, just a good as it’s main rivals and half the price. Very impressed.
Please make the storage bag a fraction bigger next time guys
Great piece of kit
Used the brukit on the great glen trail where it got a fair bit of abuse - put away wet, or crammed into the deck hatch of a kayak - it took it all. Having the pot adapter meant that it was the only cooker we used on the trip.
Was an early Christmas present. Used it a couple of times now and I'm really happy with it. Boils water in a few minutes. This can obviously be affected when exposed to wind. One thing that could be better is that the storage sleeve is a bit tight making removal and putting away a bit or of an event than I'd like. Hopefully will slacken with use.
Awesome bit of kit!
Christmas present - used it a couple of times now and I am as impressed & excited by this as I expected to be! Just been to Shielin of Mark bothy above Loch Muick which was chilly! Boiled a full pan of very cold water really quickly. Simple to set up. Lightweight, well made and the new version with stand & extra pan holder is great. Awesome stove - thanks alpkit!
Great price, great product
Ordered a Brukit online on Saturday evening, it was dispatched on Monday, received on Wednesday, used on Thursday night(below 0 degrees) / Friday morning (warmer but wet) on Dartmoor. Really pleased with it - easy to assemble, light & pack up. Good boil time, nice stability. All at a great price. I highly recommend this stove.
Superb piece of kit
My mate had been going on about his jet boil for ages and i finally bit the bullet to do some research ad get myself a new stove. I am so glad i found this brukit. Value for money, massive tick, capacity tick, ease of use tick pack able, tick. It might not be the lightest or smallest but for an overnight/ bothy or bivvy trip this surely has to be one for the list. Boiled some seriously cold highland water under 7 minutes for the full 1000ml. so glad i bought this and not a jet boil and i had money left over to treat myself to a numo camp mat too. granted i have only used it for one trip but was it worth it just for that, yes, totally.
Stumbled upon the Brukit after hiking the Tour du Mont Blanc with a friend who carried a Jet Boil stove. It is much cheaper and I boils very quick. Great value!
Great bit of kit!!
This is my first compact cooking kit since a Tranga that's 20 years old. And can't fault it. New Model with pan stand and canister support has everything you need for a day hike or a few days camping. Good product, let's hope it lasts as long as the last stove. Check out my unpacking
Does what it said on the tin
Ordered late Tuesday night, arrived today. Great stove boiled a litre in 4 mins, Spot on, well constructed and easy to use
Fantastic bit of kit, why pay more!!
This is an amazing waterheater, I am a total novice. I took myself, the kids with the dog up into the forest near us, made a den and sat with hot chocolate, coffee and marshmallows. I didn't time it but I heated 750ml water in minutes. I purchased at £35 and what a deal I can't praise it enough.
I have a 230g gas canister so the lid won't close fully but with the drawstring bag holds everything together perfectly.
I've seen on other reviews where people complained about the fiddly bag and I don't see a problem, if you are cackhanded might be a problem but if you take your time and ease it over the handles it's fine, takes seconds.
Also I've seen reviews where people are struggling getting the burner assembly in and out of the pot, I don't get it, just take your time, you're camping. It's so easy.
If all alpkits products are this reasonable yet such good quality won't hesitate to purchase from you again.
Thank you Alpkit!!
Quality piece of kit
Love this thing
The brukit, is awesome. Packs up small and boils water super fast. Really impressed with it.
Astonishing value, quality cookware.
Well made, quality but of kit. Easy to operate, simmers well and boils like a rocket. Stable on the stand, pan stand is a great bonus. Easy to assemble and breaks down into itself perfectly. I am over the moon with this purchase and can't believe how little it cost. Well done alpkit on a great bit of kit and great customer service. The handwritten thank you was a nice touch.
Just received the new Brukit today and after inspecting it closely here are my thoughts.
The build quality looks and feels very good. Solid construction and a nice handle design that folds back around the pot when not in use. The pot has a blue colored neoprene insulating cover that will help keep the contents of the pot hotter for longer and a good fitting lid that will help biol any liquid quicker. There is a small steam vent hole in the lid. The pot has a maximum fill level of 1 litre, with room to spare to accommodate any liquid when it is boiling.
The burner fits snugly onto the bottom of the pot and feels very secure when twisted and locked into position. The piezo ignition switch ignites the stove without the need for matches or a lighter, although I would always carry a turbo type lighter just in case the piezo ignition ever failed.
The Brukit comes with a pan stand so you can use a pan or kettle if you didn't want to take the pot on certain journeys.
It's also supplied with a gas canister stand that makes the whole stack more stable when in use.
The burner, pan stand, small gas canister and canister stand all fit into the pot when not in use.
Without the pan stand the pot, burner, lid and gas canister stand weigh in on my scales at 516g.
The Brukit comes with a nylon carry sack with a drawstring closure. It's a snug fit but I found pushing the pot from the bottom of the bag is the best way to get it out.
I've looked at a few Jet Boil stoves, and to me the ALPKIT Brukit holds its own against the more expensive brand in terms of quality and specifications.
I have yet to use it out in the field, but when I do I will give it a usage review, but so far so very good.
Kept 6 guys in tea every day
Bought this for a trip trying to take 5 fifty year old Land Rovers to Monte Carlo via as many pointy bits of the Alps as possible.
It was such a good stove it made nearly every cup of tea for all of us on the trip as well as many meals.
Easy to use, always lights first time and boils very fast.
I used the 450g canisters and only used 2 for the whole trip.
One suggestion might be to offer a spacer ring/pan support so it can be used with regular pans?
Only negative is that the neoprene sleeve has started to seperate from it's outer layer but it still works fine.
So thanks for all the tea Alpkit.
Ps. we made it to Monte Carlo! Pic is making tea at 8000ft in Fort de la Turra
I bought my brukit after a very length do I/don't I need it internal debate and I'm really glad I did.
Firstly, the bad news. It's a lot heavier than my mytimug/pocket rocket combo and takes up a fair bit more space in a pack. The storage bag is too tight too.
Onto the good news: it's a joy to use. It's very gas efficient (I've emptied gas canisters before disposal by boiling copious litres of water in it and it doesn't suffer much performance drop off - certainly not like the online comments would have you believe - it was boiling litres in sub five minutes with nearly empty canisters). The set up is very stable and the large pot means cooking big meals is a doddle. I've dropped mine into an Alpkit xs mesh bag which fits the stove, brew and washing up kits and mug nicely.
Mine has been out with me virtually every weekend this year and is going strong. Love it!
Fantastic bit of kit!
I've been using the Brukit for just under a year and I love it.
Fast, efficaiant and keeps me and a friend or two fed quickly whether I'm on a campsite with DofE groups or biving at the top of a munro.
This stove/pot combination is an animal! Fast boiling and half the price of similar quality competitors!! Ideal for lightweight camping (I am an expeditions assessor for the DofE scheme) because of its compactness and weight.
Otherwise, it will live in our motorhome or car for short-stop brewing.
No need for additional kit either - just water and a gas canister. Brilliant!.
Top notch BruKit
Ordered late on the 1st, delivered on the 4th, and used on the 5th, the new BruKit certainly doesn't disappoint. Made to Alpkit's usual high standard, it actually knocks spots of the competition by being perfectly capable of doing the job it was designed for at a third of the price of others (and it will pack a bigger gas canister). But then I wasn't really expecting anything else coming from Alpkit.
I've read negative reviews on the web and I reckon the peeps writing them would never be satisfied with anything! The Brukit is a complete winner: price, build, quality and performance. Those that are complaining about boil times taking a few odd mins and secs more than a jetboil: get a life, jeez!
I've had this stove for a while, used it quite a bit, and generally am very happy with it. When it arrives the bag is a bit tight but it does stretch after use. The neoprene sleeve doesn't help in that respect but you wouldn't want to be without it as it means you can pick the whole thing up immediately after heating. The size means it's ideal for boil in the bag type meals. I mostly heat water in mine, and put meals in the water or make them with it. For that it's ideal. Gets a litre of water boiling in no time. Piezo ignition is great too. The way the stove is designed to clip onto a gas canister when in transit means the whole thing packs away pretty small. I've got quite a few stoves and this one is my current favourite. Can't fault it, excellent value for money.
Good, versatile cooking system
A good cooking system that does essentially the same job as it’s competitors for half the price. I’ve found the BruKit to be a reliable and easy-to-use piece of kit, which comes with the a pan and canister stand that are nice bonuses. The bag is slightly too small but after nearly a year of use I’ve found that it stretches out and fits well. The only other quibble that prevent a five-star rating is that the Piezo ignitor has come loose, which means I always have to check that it is aligned with the gas valve before use.
Nice unit great price - BUT bag too small
Just received one of these as so much better value and more flexible than a very popular brand out there! Impressed other then a frequent mistake of companies THE BAG IS TOO SMALL , it's a struggle to get the burner back in.
For the price, Probably the best Kit available
I did a LOT of research before purchasing the Brukit. I also have done some extensive testing on boil times & durability.
Using isobutane, 0.5L of cold tap water, at 0-100ft elevation: The stove reaches rolling boil in about 2 minutes and burns roughly 5-8 grams. There was no notable difference in boil time between a full 1 turn valve open and max valve open (about 1.5-1.7 turns). Water loss from steam was negligible when fitting the red top firmly and indicated boiling by visible steam plume from the top's slit. The neoprene cover allows you to hold with bare hands even after boiling. The stove itself cools enough to touch in roughly 2 minutes. The ignition tip glows red hot but has never failed to ignite the fuel on the first button press. The stove is louder than some other but when I say louder, think whispering child vs whispering adult. Not much at all.
Alpkit also shipped to me in the USA and cost half the price of a competitor brand. The pot itself feels durable and shows zero damage after I scraped baked-on eggs with a titanium spoon from the bottom and sides. The locking feature of the pot to the stove was difficult to release out of the box, so I used a vise grip on the 2 "bumps" and now it's perfect.
It's not the lightest or the fastest boiling kit but the price-point is hard to beat. The kit doesn't come with all the "extra items" that other kits do so you can spend the money you saved on actual GOOD accessories, if you even need them.
I was not paid or given anything for writing this review. This is just me, and my findings / opinion. Hope it helps you decide what's best for you.
I use the the Brukit mostly for campervan camping and quick drinks on long car journeys; good stove speeds up breakfast preparation.
Purchased a brukit a few years ago. It was great to start with, then the rubber seal split. Great service from Alpkit in sending replacement seals, but the brukit was never as good and failed to work on a cold fishing day. Glad I had a backup option.
2 star product 5 star service
Worked fine until cannister was half empty when performance tailed off to woeful levels. Returned to Alpkit who tested it and said this was normal but refunded me anyway. Perhaps later models have improved?
Had this a few years now not great works ok if gas is full for about 2 or 3 times and then have to put a new one on it so I have load of half full gas cans and if its cold forget about it friend has a jetboil and his works fine till gas is empty
Great piece of kit
I bought my Brukit a couple of years ago now and it has given great service in that time. The only thing it lacked was a pan support. However, as I know the Brukit was a rebated Firemaple FMS-X1, I started lookin at Firemaple gear on AliExpress and I found a seller who sold the FMS-X2 (same dimensions as the X1 and Brukit) pan support for just over £8.00.
I now have a complete cooking system.
