Anyone who has served in the armed forces will be familiar with a piece equipment like this. It uses small tablets that burn to give heat to your cooking pots It is really only designed to boil water or fry an egg or two, not to cook a full blown meal – if you buy it for more than that you will be disappointed.

Our Review

If you are looking for a small, easy and quick to use stove to heat soup or a tin of beans then this is ideal. It folds away neatly which makes it really simple to store. It is made from steel and has a strong and sturdy frame that can support the weight of pots and pans that you may wish to use. Do not buy if you wish to cook a large meal, you would be there all week – it is not designed for that purpose.

This stove comes with a pack of 4 solid fuel tablets which should be able to boil one cup of water in around 5 minutes. When using it we discovered that it is best to start with one tablet and then add tablets as you go, they last much longer than starting with 4 or 5 from the beginning.

Another tip for you; if you struggle to light the tablets (which you probably will in the wind) break a chunk of the tablet off and crumble it into a small pile on the tablet, this makes it a lot easier to light.

If you are going away for any length of time you are going to want to take quite a few tablets with you, see the link above to buy them online. The tablets do burn cleanly without any bad smells.

To summarise; this is a quality, lightweight piece of camping equipment that I would recommend for festival goes, hikers and backpackers more so than campers etc.

    I bought one of these to boil water on a kayak expedition. It is very easy to transport, even fitting in a pocket of my life preserver at one point. It took 4 tablets to boil 6 cups of water but less would work in more time. I was hungry. I used 2 cups for each meal that day using Mountain House dehydrated meals and a Stanley thermos that kept the rest of the water scalding hot even for dinner after the sun had gone down.

    For those trips that require packing light and eating when you’re tired and don’t feel like working for an hour to produce a meal, get one of these and some MRE style food.
