Summary

Works well and very packable.

Pros

  • Size
  • Weigh
  • Seal

Purchased this to put in an emergency car/hiking kit to be used with equipment I already have. Works very well and compliments the items I already own.

The best thing is the O-ring seal. Not having to empty the fuel out if you don't use it all is a real advantage. I have used this several days in a row on short hikes to become familer with it. Performs well heating soup and coffee.

Manufacturer's Description

The Esbit Alcohol Burner is a lightweight alternative to a liquid gas or canister stove. Denatured Alcohol is easy to find and cheaper to use than alternatives. Alcohol stoves are the stove of choice for ultralight and long-distance backpackers.

There are no moving parts or burners to wear out or break. Just fill it and light it. It can be used alone providing you have some sort of pot support with you. Some ultralighters use tent stakes to support the pots to save weight. Uses Denatured Alcohol only for fuel which will be easily available at a local hardware or grocery store.

  • Constructed from brass with a screw top and rubber gasket.
  • Variable temperature control.
  • Fold-away handle on the flame regulator to extinguish flame.
  • Works with denatured alcohol only.
  • Dimensions: 1.8" x 2.9" (4.6 cm x 7.4 cm)
  • Weight: 3.25 oz. (92 g)
