Wildfire Risk Makes This Tricky

I've been wanting to use this more for over a year now but with the wildfire risk and fire bans in Colorado, it's been hard to find a time. The idea of not carrying fuel and a stove is great but fire hazards lately are serious.

OK but could be better and much less expensive.

I don't have much experience in wood burning camp stoves, but am disappointed so far. I like the idea of reducing/replacing isobutane canister and white gas stoves, and having the option to carry less or no fuel on backpacks, but not sure if this stove is the best answer. I have a large Solo bonfire, and I thought it would be more like a Solo ... Read Morestove, with secondary burn, but it is essentially just a small, one walled cone to get a small fire going in. I found it very hard to light and also hard to keep going once lit. The slits in the bottom are quite small, so lighting from the bottom is difficult at best. It is nearly impossible to do with a lighter and hard to do with a match, especially if there is any wind or if the wood is not bone dry. I've found the best solution is using a birthday candle, which can fit through the slot. Once lit, it is difficult to (a) see how much fuel is still in the stove, and (b) to add more sticks without taking the pot off. There is a small gap between the pot and the stove, but it is hard to feed sticks in without them getting stuck or knocking the stove over. Perhaps it was the wood I had, but it burned down really quickly, and was difficult to re-start a fire using the remaining embers, even while blowing on them. It's also not terrible stable. It is light and tall, and I've nearly knocked it over a few times. I've burned it a few times at home and twice backpacking. I'll give it some more chances, but not sure it will be a part of my regular kit without backup. If the top can be used with an alcohol burner, that might be a good combination backup, though.

Great emergency stove

Bought this stove on a whim had to see how it worked. It works just fine. If you are in a place where it is safe to make an actual fire, and there is kindling to small wood pieces the loss of which will not disturb the environment, this little, supe-light weight item is a great thing to have in case you run out of gas bottles. I enjoyed using it an... Read Mored it also can burn up cardboard and other combustibles that would otherwise need to be packed out.

Incredible little stove

This is lightweight, stows well when collapsed in the sack it comes with, and has incredible airflow for lighting a quick fire. It's also easy to dust off and pack away shortly after use.

Cant use my on my forest

Unless you have an on/off switch, this is not allowed on public lands with fire restrictions. Make sure to check fire restrictions before using this! Bummed!

Wood Burning Stove

i picked this up to use in conjunction with a snow peak giga power 2.0 stove. i wanted the option of have fuel powered and wood powered. this allows you to ditch a fuel can and save weight plus eliminate the extra foot print a fuel canister takes. it does take a bit longer to boil water, but who cares... youre out in nature, do you have somewhere... Read More you need to be? i love that it collapses down and fits perfectly inside the QauntuMiiR pot. the stove itself acts like a great wind breaker and chimney, add the heat displacement of the copper bottom of the pot and its a brilliant piece to add to the camp kitchen.
