This is like a upgrade from the flat folding stove, but it is still cheap enough. The major difference is that you can use more than just fuel tablets with this stove, which is great because eventually you will run out of tablets!
Pretty cool, I've seen variations of this build using aluminum cans, great idea, saves you the time of making your own especially if you are "Craft Challenged". Very cool addition.
Great little stove
Lightweight, tiny, portable, and functional. I've used this stove with tablets and with alcohol and it works great. I've tried it with white gas also and had mixed results. Depending (I think) on the temperature (warmer worked better), white gas seemed to work out alright but it took a lot of priming to get it going. I would highly recommend this to anyone for a bug out kit. Alcohol is readily available and gas can be found all over the place.
Affordable and portable.
I can't afford the expense of the bigger, fancier emergency stoves, so this is a good alternative.
