All in one eco cookset for 1-2 people people using a unique safe Bio-Ethanol Gel Fuel.
The Fuel4 X2 Eco Cookset
is a fantastic alternative to meths or gas for cooking when camping, and is designed and manufactured in Sheffield.
The X2 is an all-in-one lightweight 1-2 person cookset that was developed to create a safe and efficient cooking system perfect for the lightweight camping and festivals. The X2 conveniently packs into one compact unit and includes a 1 litre saucepan, x grill and a spoon-fork combo.
What makes this cookset so special is the Bio-Ethanol Fuel Gel - a smokeless, non-toxic, non-explosive gel that lights easily and is safe for use on campsites or at festivals. The gel is burnt in an adjustable regulator that allows you to control the flame size for safe, accurate cooking.
Note: The can of fuel shown in the images is not included, but can be purchased separately here.

Cheaper version of trangia, 30 September 2013
By Steph (Cardiff)
Overall this is an excellent cookset.
Light to carry and small to pack, I found this very easy to use. The bag has plenty of space to chuck in a few extra implements and matches etc, and the way it packs together allowed me to add in a standard enamel bowl/plate without taking up any extra space.
The gel does leave some residue after burning, so you need to scrub out the holder after a few uses. It burns very hot (boiled a small kettle quicker than my friend's mini gas burner, and great for frying bacon, mmm), but the temperature is difficult to regulate, and it goes through the gel quicker than I expected - the sample sachet included did an evening meal plus water for tea in the morning but that was it - its just as well I took the refill along too...
Build quality seems pretty sturdy, and overall good value - it definitely did better than various gas burners that friends had, particularly when there was a bit of a breeze!

Bought this just as an alternative to gas that I usually use. Was interested as hadnt seen this before, so gave it a try. Good results. Used with some wayfarers food, quick to get to temperature and really easy to set up. Was surprised by the strength of a gel fuel, not really used one before. Could probably do with a lid on the pan to help boil time.
Uncontrolable, 26 March 2013
Very disappointed with this buy. After reading other reveiws and the product discription, I thought this would be a good buy. I took it out recently on a 2 day camp and was thoroughly unsatisfied. The flame cannot be controlled very well, and had the ground not been wet I am sure it would have been set alight. The tag line a "safer fuel" is definatley not appropriate. I wanted to avoid using gas and meths while cooking on camping trips so this cookset seemed like a brilliant alternative but there are definatley kinks that need to be ironed out before this becomes an efficient usable product, there is no control of the flame as you have with a tradiational trangia as the mechanism preposed to control the flame does not work in the slightest, it does not even help to put out the flame as the fire just spread around it. I am still looking in the market for a stove that does not use gas or meths but I would reccommend you don't waste your money on this one.
Fantastic new product!, 11 September 2012
By George Howards (Sheffield)
I recently visited Go Outdoors to purchase my kit in preparation for the Bestival music festival on the Isle of White. As per usual the staff were very helpful and when I asked about cook stoves he explained to me about a new product range available called The X-Series by Fuel4. It sounded great and I loved the fact it used a safer alternative fuel source and was made in the UK.
I thought this was fantastic and about time we had an option of a safer, greener fuel to be honest. I purchased the X-2 which included a cook stove, saucepan, spoon/fork, flame regulator, bung to save fuel, pot grip, x-grill, fairtrade cotton carry bag and 200ml of fuel! The whole kit I felt was a bargain compared to what else is on the market. I also purchased 1litre of refill fuel as Bestival is over 4 days and the man in Go Outdoors advised I would need more than 200ml of fuel for that amount of time.
Considering the dangers of carbon monoxide poisoning when using barbecues and gas and the fact that gas cookers are now banned in uk festivals for safety reasons I thought the X-Series was a brilliant new idea. Definitely a much safer alternative to whats normally available.
I've just returned from a brilliant time at Bestival and the X-2 was great! It cooked up the sausages perfectly and boiled water quickly for tea and coffee in the morning. I particularly appreciated the cotton bag included that made it easy to carry around the festival.
One recommendation would be to use a windshield while cooking as strong winds can extinguish the flame. However, I would still definitely recommend this product!
I'm even heading back to Go Outdoors to pick one up for my cousin to use on the Duke of Edinburgh award at school!
Happy camping people and stay safe!
