This little titanium ESBIT/FireLite fuel tablet holder…

Rating: rated 5 of 5 stars
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: came with CC Sidewinder stove


This little titanium ESBIT/FireLite fuel tablet holder is simple, ultra light and actually increases the burning efficiency of fuel tabs. It does this by restricting the flame to the top and ends of the fuel tab.
A plus is that you can load two tablets (side-by-side) and double the burn time. Use it in any ESBIT stove, but the BEST use by far is in a Caldera Cone stove.


  • increases ESBIT/FireLite burning efficiency
  • very light
  • disassembles for better packing
  • helps any ESBIT stove


  • base can be deformed by unwise packing
  • pieces can get lost

The Gram Cracker comes with every Caldera Cone. Mine came with my CC Sidewinder titanium multifuel stove (ESBIT, alky and wood).

This fuel tab holder is the key to burning efficiency. Probably 30% of the efficiency gain with a Caldera Cone comes from this simple fuel tab holder.
