Summary

Would you like fresh baked muffins after many miles of hiking? This STOVE is the ONE, that can make that possible.

Pros

  • Very sturdy
  • Integrated pot stand
  • Can simmer and bake
  • 20- 25 minutes of burn time on an ounce and a half of fuel

Cons

  • Because it is more durable than the pop cans it does weigh more

YES, with this little baby even baking is possible. A nice change from those pop can made stoves that we all try to copy. This one can even simmer in addition to baking, and the integrated pot stand is a real plus.

Summary

This is a well constructed alcohol stove and the most unique part is that you can adjust the flame.

Pros

  • Well constructed
  • Adjustable flame
  • Easy to use

Cons

  • A little heaver than other alcohol stoves

I bought this stove about a year ago and it has been working great. I decided to purchase the stove because it had an adjustable flame, which I liked and couldn’t find in other alcohol stove. 

The stove is easy to fuel and prime. It takes about 1 oz. of denatured alcohol just under 5 min to boil 2 cups of water.  It is small and compact and very well built. The stove is small enough to be stored in my cooking pot. 

The only moving part is a sleeve that rotates which controls the flame.  You have to hold your pot steady while you adjust the flame.  You have to use a wind screen with the stove.
