Pros

  • cheap
  • easy to make
  • lightweight

Cons

  • need a wind screen
  • not that stable

Bought a can of tuna salad and crackers. After I finished eating I got to looking at the tin can and thought it would work good as a lightweight alcohol stove.

Got home and drilled holes every sixteenth of an inch around the can and it works like a champ. A small 3 oz bottle of alcohol and the stove only weighs 3.5 oz.  Will boil 8 oz cup of water in about 4 minutes. 

Need a wind screen for best results. Great for keeping in your day pack just in case and fits in my GSA stainless steel cup.  I made a couple of them to put in my packs for backup and in the vehicles' emergency kits.
