Sierra Zip Ztove

rated 5 of 5 stars Reliable, basic, and light. I used an original zip stove when thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail in the '90s. I never understood why anyone would carry fuel when wood was abundant from Georgia to Maine. Plus I love the smell of a wood fire! Full review

Sierra Zip Ztove

rated 3.5 of 5 stars It's a good choice if you don't want to fool with making sure you have enough fuel. I carry mine around for quick meals on the trail, even though I usually cook right over the fire. Setup: Plop it on the ground and set up a miniature campfire inside. As simple as it gets.

Sierra Zip Ztove

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I found one at a yard sale for $5 and grabbed it up. It works great even with wet material as long as a fire is going before hand. It's in my BOB. Full review

Sierra Zip Ztove

rated 5 of 5 stars This is the coolest stove you can buy. Small size and weight, never carry fuel. The only thing that needs improvement is the quality of the manufacturing. It is functional, but a little cheaply made. I will be making my own power supply for my Zip stove when I get around to it, because the one that it comes with shorts out sometimes. Still, five stars for innovation and bringing a unique product to market. Full review

Sierra Zip Ztove

rated 5 of 5 stars I owned the original Zip Ztove and have never used anything else. Most people do not know how to use it. Turn the fan on to boil and turn the fan off to simmer. I sell the old Ztoves and have only a few left. The new ones have way too much on them. I use it to car camp and only use charcoal. It has no black residue. And another one for backpacking. Why anyone would use anything else baffles me. When I backpack I have all the hot water I want...including hot bath water. Hot water...anytime I want. Full review
