User Review: MYOG Beverage Can Alcohol Stove
Source: I made it
A lightweight, easy-to-make, reliable, compact stove. Does it get better than that? It is easy to use, easy to light, and will boil water. The shape of the bottom of a beverage can gives the stove great stiffness and structure making it durable. If I am going out in the backcountry, this type of stove has everything that I want.
- Cheap and easy to make
- Fuel is cheap, light, and easy to find in U.S.
- Uh, I guess the fact that you have to make it yourself would be a con for some people?
- The burner is not adjustable
Fuel is cheap and lightweight. The stove is very easy to make. It is safe and smoke free. It brings water to a boil quickly.
Without burner adjustment, a pot stand/windshield that can hold the pot at a few different heights is preferred to control the cook rate. I use a soup can that is bigger than my pot with holes and a wire (U-shape) to hold the pot at different heights above the stove. I can also turn the can over (on top of the stove) to grille. 1 oz of 93% pure alcohol can boil 20-24 oz of water easily. The windscreen/pot holder makes the whole system very stable.
