The Trail Designs 12-10 alcohol stove has been designed…

Rating: 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.


  • Burns efficiently at all altitudes
  • Made from recycled soda cans
  • Works best in a Calera Cone


  • Alcohol is heavier to carry than a light canister stove and fuel can when backpacking longer than 3 days.
  • Generally alcohol does not have enough BTUs to work well as a winter stove.

Not much else can be said about this simple but well designed stove than was said above. As a Trail Designs product it has great quality. It comes in a small, lidded plastic bowl which could be used as "dinnerware".

Retailers' Descriptions

Here's what other sites are saying:

The Trail Designs Caldera Sidewinder Stove System includes the Classic Caldera Cone, Open Country 2 qt non-stick pot with bale handle, two titanium stakes, 12-10 stove with integrated primer pan, fuel bottle with measuring cup, Tyvek sleeve to protect your pot, and a Trail Designs stuff sack to hold it all. The theory behind the system is that completely enclosing the pot and stove within the Caldera Cone, and fine tuning the alcohol stove to work in that environment, we are now able to milk every last BTU out of your fuel and funnel it onto all sides of your pot. Not only does the cone system optimize your fuel usage, its wide base provides the most stable system on the market.
