Gas tends to be the easiest option, but maybe not the best (subjective).
I use an Optimus Crux Lite very similar to Pocket Rocket. I wouldnt get a jetboil for your sort of trips (which is the same is what i do) but it would still do the job.

Bit of a sweeping statement from Bedders there re the Jetboil
Just to note about jetboil. The SolTi got a highly reccomended from backpackinglight (here) so its obviously a perfectly valid alternative at a decent weight.
(The latter aspect is far from universal with their stoves.).
Not that weeny gas things don't work very well too. (or sundry other things )
Um yes, its mostly interesting in the sense that one major complaint cf jetboils has been the weight.
Clearly specalised for boiling water so if you wish to cook 'proper' food the appeal would be rather limited! Dehydrated food of one form or another pretty mainstream mind, especially for longer trips.

For gas the ones mentioned are good starters - I have a Crux myself. It does end up a little tall. Mainly boiling water it will be fine, but if you are planning to cook you may be better with a remote like the primus spider express. It ends up lower and potentially more stable.
