Alcohol Camp Stove Kits
UPDATE, 3/29/13

Starting now, we are offering our second run of stove kits for sale and will begin shipping on Tuesday, April 2.
Due to higher costs for materials and postage, we are no longer able to offer free shipping on every stove.
The price is $25.00 for each kit, plus $3.50 shipping for one stove, $5.50 shipping for two stoves, and free shipping for 3 or more stoves.
Please add $2.00 per stove to Canada.

PayPal to evy (at) vanhornwhitewater (dot) com , or PM for cheque/MO payment instructions

BTW , We still have a few "blems" available if anyone is interested.They are development prototypes and production stoves that have hole spacing issues or distortions that didn't meet our first-quality specs. They are still presentable, level and fully functional.

The price for a blem is $7.50 for the bare stove (stove only, no accessories), postage is included in the US. Add $1.00 to Canada.
Blem stoves are be randomly selected, but we will try to deliver your color choice if available.


Lightweight Alcohol Camp Stove Kits are now available.
These are a limited run of 42 stoves for sale, hand made by me and my daughter as a fundraiser for my daughter's athletic travel & competition expenses (current member of the US Junior Whitewater Slalom Team). We made 8 more to give out as Christmas gifts to some friends and relatives, and 2 for my own use.
While this is not new technology, we have spent much time doing R&D developing this stove, standardizing its manufacturing method and learning its characteristics under various conditions.

The kit includes:
Stove made from 25oz aluminum drinking bottle, mill-finished reflective aluminum wind screen, high-quality 4oz fuel bottle with safety cap, and user's manual.
For cold weather performance, a reflective heavy foil square, ground-insulating base, and kevlar external priming wick are also included.
Everything fits nicely into the 3mm-thick neoprene carry pouch, which has extra room for your cup or small cooking vessel (up to 4' diameter).
Available in 4 colors: Red, Blue, Green, Pewter.

* Note: Our manufacturing process has been standardized to insure your stove meets our first-quality criteria. However, because they are assembled by hand, you may experience slight cosmetic variations from kit to kit. Also, due to unavoidable variations in the raw materials, the stoves may have small scratches and distortions, which do not interfere with their overall appearance or performance. All kits function 100% and will provide years of productive use.

Just measured the one I keep in my car. The diameter is 72mm, and the height is about 35-36mm.

Please add ADV username to message when paying by PayPal
Howdy All,

Several kits went out yesterday, and my daughter emailed the folks who were in that bunch.
The rest should be able to go tomorrow, with maybe a straggler on Saturday. The bottle neck is trying to locate boxes/padded envelopes, and I'm still making wind screens as orders come in.

My daughter receives the emails and I also see them, but for orders past this point, if you can indicate your ADV username in the email, that will help me sift through who's who so nobody slips through the cracks.


Tengai650 12-17-2012 07:14 PM

All stove orders so far have been filled, including the ones that came in yesterday and today!

I still have 18 left for sale, but could stretch that to 22. Green is in the shortest quantity with only 3 left.

Hotmamaandme 12-18-2012 08:03 PM

Got my stove in the mail today and 3 inches of snow so spring get here so I can go camping:clap

Times are GMT -7.   It's 02:35 PM.
