One has to experiment with setting it up with both the base and windscreen, just the base, and just the windscreen to get the best of all possible worlds. (This is best accomplished at home instead of on the trail.) I use both to boil water with my Fire Maple heat exchanger pot. It will boil a liter and a half of water faster than my microwave. I use the burner and just the base to make espresso coffee in two minutes.
If I want to simmer a pot and cook something that takes medium heat (like pancakes), I place the burner into the windscreen and the combination of stove and windscreen works perfectly to simmer. The Ti Dx Set also works with my Trangia, Alocs, and other alcohol burners. This product is so good that my hoarding gene kicked in and I purchased two of them.
- Does not use much fuel when combined with a heat exchanger pot
- Flexable, can configure the Ti burner into the base, the windscreen, both, or with the power plate
- Flexable, can configure the stove to work with practically any alcohol burner, esbit tablets, or wood (it is small for wood)
- Do not need a windscreen with this stove unless in gale force winds
- Light, packs small, and fits into a pot for storage
- Cools quickly so you can put it away before your freeze dried food is rehydrated
- Blooms quickly
- Will simmer for a long time when configured for simmer (see notes above)
- The cost is high for such a little device
- Need to put it in a pot or into a light weight plastic canister (I use a Zip Lock disposable) in your pack so you will not mash it flat in your pack
Have utilized this stove for 9 camping trips so far this summer and it is now my go-to stove for everything. Used to swear by my Trangia until I had fuel boil over twice on one trip.
Once I got back from the trip in which I had the incidents, I investigated further and found out that if one traps heat (by utilizing a very big pot or a flat griddle type of pan) over an alcohol stove for extended periods of time (longer than 8 minutes) that does not have cooling provisions at it's base, then fuel boil over is possible. Those incidents starting my search for a stove set up that has cooling holes at the base of the stove for cooling the burner.
Once I purchased this one, I have never looked back. It is engineered well as a package and I feel safer using it. There has not been a camping product that has impressed me more than this stove in years. I highly recommend it.
Ok, let's get this part out of the way - Yes, it's…
Price Paid: a lot
Ok, let's get this part out of the way - Yes, it's expensive. And I'm spoiled, but consistently rarely--- and this was one piece of Ti I had to possess. I love to cook, what better excuse. From the looks at first I said hmm... did they test out where every hole was punched, what shape, and how many? Probably.
65 degrees no wind 50 percent humidity.- San Francisco
Set up with only the pieces provided-, power plate resting under stove as storage
My 1.5 litre MSR Titan pot.
Markings on the inside of the stove (max line is a smidge over 2 oz.)- hit it.
-Insert 6 cups cold tap water( 48 oz). 13 degrees Celsius, no lid.
Hit stopwatch at flick of bic. ( including prime time on this test) and two seconds later pot goes on top centered carefully.
@ 11. minutes. arrive hard rolling boil. (simmer was back over half a minute ago) its almost out of the pot. but no.
13 minutes. - rolling boil starts to begin settling.
What are the practical purposes for such a well engineered get up?
You can set it up to burn forest snippets or esbit tabs. -- one reason i got it.
You can feel guilty because that money could have gone to a homeless shelter
You can rest assured that by the feel of it, with the exceptions of befalling a sleepwalking foot/ knee, you will be very fond of it fortnights.
At 3 oz, it's not a cat food can, and at almost ninety dollars it could be a Garmin 24K DVD shopped well. But it's not, it's delicate on the eyes, easy to figure out after 5 minutes of Rubiks cube work, and a standalone target for envious criticism. With modular capabilities from simmer to rip, (do experiment with configs), it puts out enough for two hip campers easily, or more. I'm taking it on the CDT for the occasional* sponge bath.
Okay, it certainly is expensive. If you calculate…

Okay, it certainly is expensive. If you calculate the difference between conventional gear and titanium gear and price your ounces saved, you will understand that air has become the most expensive commodity in the outdoor world.
But as a piece of kit, this is just fantastic and worth every penny. It is superlight, the stove is efficient, and with the trivet cross-stand it permits multiple permutations.
One thing to say is that Evernew's guidance is that the trivet cross-stand can not be used on top of the stand / windscreeen. This is incorrect — it can be done and is my favourite setup for boiling water. I own a Trangia too and after one year in a dry storage environment have noticed corrosion setting in. The Evernew will never corrode.
I've used my Evernew set for summer camping and will be taking it winter camping too. I love it so much I even use it to boil up water for coffee in my kitchen. On a full stove of alcohol, I can boil enough for 4 to 6 cups within 15 minutes (refilling my small pot between boils). The stove is fast and blooms every time, unlike some titanium stoves out there. I like having the versatility to burn wood if fuel runs out on a hike.
- Price, but then multi-fuel setups are even more expensive and are not environmentally friendly.
- Be careful to set the burner up away from long grass - in windy conditions this is a necessary safety precaution.
- No simmer capacity, but the build quality and corrosion proof materials edge the Trangia by a long way.
All round, I love this piece of kit and would pay the money for it again if I ever had to.
