Soto Muka Packed Up

The Muka stove from SOTO is the world’s first non-priming liquid fuel stove.  It has revolutionized the common understanding of a gasoline stove’s characteristics, no longer does the user need to put up with a dirty sooty stove, cumbersome preheating and endless maintenance before and after use.  Even with the use of commonly available unleaded petrol the stove burns clean and maintenance free.

This gas stove combines a reliable powerful output with ease of care. Muka is not a simple gasoline stove but the next generation of stove.

The stove ignites and burns like a gas stove and the soft, elongated and narrow diameter hose enables safe and easy operation.  The burner is controlled by the flame control knob located on the pump and gives excellent flame adjustment and incorporates an emergency stop button and pressure indictor.

The SOTO MUKA stove comes complete with a hose, pump, maintenance tool, carrying case and 700ml fuel bottle and retails for £175

  1. Got it, tried it, couldn’t get it to stop leaking gas all over and turning into a big fireball so I returned it and got an optimus hiker. Muka stove did not work well in the cold AT ALL. -9 degrees F. I own several stoves, some of which are antique and they all work better than the muka. When I did get it to work however it did have very impresive heat output and I love the design. It needed to be pumped a lot……….a real lot! Optimus works perfectly.
