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

Rating: rated 4 of 5 stars

Summary

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.

Pros

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

Cons

  • 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 12-10 Alcohol Stove from Trail Designs was designed to be used primarilly with their Caldera/Ti-Tri systems, but can used in conjunction with your own pot stand and wind screen as well. It features a "center burn" design where air comes in the holes you see along the outside and the flame comes out the larger hole you see on top.
