Sidewinder Ti-Tri

rated 5 of 5 stars This stove can burn ESBIT tabs, alcohol (12-10 alky stove included) and wood with the optional Inferno kit. The ti sheet metal construction is excellent. The Gram Cracker ESBIT tab holder and cone give THE best efficiency of any ESBIT stove. The Inferno insert makes the stove a highly efficient and HOT "gassifier" wood burner that rivals the Bush Buddy. Stove is very light and compact when rolled up for storage. The Sidewinder Caldera Cone stove has several differences from the original aluminum Caldera… Full review

Classic Ti-Tri

rated 4.5 of 5 stars The Trail Designs Classic Ti-Tri stove system offers a pot stand, a windscreen, and three fuel choices—alcohol, Esbit, wood—in a durable, lightweight package. Best for lightweight or ultralight backpackers hiking in conditions that make these fuel options viable and practical. The search for the perfect backpacking stove is virtually endless: for we DIYers and MYOG junkies, the endless array of stoves that can be made in one's workshop (or even on the trail) offer low cost and the satisfaction… Full review

Caldera Cone System

rated 4 of 5 stars Look for the model that allows the windscreen to be used with a wood fire. Burn wood in the aluminum model and the sides will melt. On a 10-day hike I found the titanium Snow Peak stove with a canister weighs less than 10 days worth of alcohol. I have used esbit, alcohol, and wood, but the most convenient and easiest to get going is the canister stove. As far as alcohol stoves go (I have a least a dozen homemade jobs) the Caldera Stove system works very well, just be sure to get the right size for… Full review

Caldera Cone System

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a lightweight 12-10 alcohol stove with a custom-made cone-shaped aluminum windscreen that serves as a pot stand for your specific cooking pot. Along with a fuel bottle and a Nyquil-like measuring device, the system is all packed into a plastic caddy for easy storage and transportation About 2 years ago, I made the switch to an alcohol stove – for several reasons:  1) wanted to reduce my base weight; 2) tired of gas canisters; 3) my old canister stove was in need of replacement; 4) I saw… Full review

12-10 Alcohol Stove

rated 4 of 5 stars The Trail Designs 12-10 alcohol stove has been designed after thoroughly testing many stove configurations with the Caldera Cone. What resulted was the 12-10 stove which will burn efficiently at all altitudes. This was Trail Designs' goal and they achieved it. Very few alcohol stoves can make this claim. The best efficiency from this stove can be achieved by using it in a Caldera Cone windscreen/pot support. Not much else can be said about this simple but well designed stove than was said above.
