Never really knew what one was so have just googled it and they look fab! We have one of those single burners on a little gas cannister jooby plus separate saucepan and kettle which take up space.
Do they take long to heat a kettle up? our stove takes forever and when I'm hungry and thirsty in the morning it makes me grumpy!
Does the kettle hold enough for a couple of mugs?

They're fab! Dh has had one for years and we went camping a s afamily for first time last year. I insisted on taking gas cooker thinking that we'd never manage with just the trangia, but we only used the gas cooker the first night.
It's worth buying a kettle for it though, they're rreally neat and don't take long to boil at all, and pour really nicely, don't spill at all. We've got the biggest size set, and the pot is just big enough for the four of us - it might be a bit small when the kids get bigger (5 and 3 now) but I reckon I could just get a cheap pot from ikea to put on top.

Sorry, kettle holds at least two mugs iirc ( i have big mugs), and prob takes a few min to boil - it never seemed long though.

Oh yes, trangias are the thing - have been using them for about 20 yrs now (shock how old I am!) and they are easy to use, stable and clean. And yes, the kettle do a couple of mugs easy - we have very big mugs!!
