User Review: Esbit Pocket Stove
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $11
This is NOT a stove to cook a chicken over. It is a lightweight stove for boiling water. Used for this purpose it is great!
- Light weight
- Boils 2 cups of water in approximately 8 minutes
This little gem is perfect for what it is intended for — to boil water. Need to purify water? Water for MRE's? Coffee/Tea?
I purchased this stove mainly for my emergency kit when winter hiking. How good would a hot cup of tea or cup of soup taste if someone is injured on a cold winter day? Two cups of water take approximately 8 minutes to boil.
It is inexpensive — approximately $11. It is lightweight at 3.25 oz. Easy to light the non toxic fuel which you can blow out if you don't use it all (you may need a type of wind block for which i pack some tinfoil).
I usually just pack a tin cup in which the whole stove/fuel fits. Perfect!
