User Review: Esbit Pocket Stove
Price Paid: $9.99 for stove and some fuel cubes
I love this stove. It weighs next to nothing and is fine (3 season) for my freezer bag cooking. I have resorted to all freezer bag cooking to minimize cleanup, so now I don't always need my Svea 123.
If I was on a long trek or in winter conditions I might bring the 123, but I have had no problems with the Esbit boiling a cup of water in five minutes or less. There is usually enough left over from one solid fuel cube to also boil a cup for a hot drink.
I was also able to use a solid fuel cube on a very rainy group backpack where we wanted a fire and could not find any dry tinder. We had dryer lint but it did not keep going long enough to light the tinder.
Very good stove.
