I bought a stove from Shady Rascal. After reading his screen name, I was a bit hesitant. I went for it it anyhow. How bad could it be for the cost of a hamburger and fries? All I have to say is AWESOME! Something so simple yet so functional. I used running alcohol as the fuel.

My wife looked at me like I was crazy when I told her it was a mini stove. After all, I have a jetboil kit. She looked at me even more crazy when I went running for the rubbing alcohol and started to pour it in. I used a lighter to start it up and viola, I had a nice orange flame. After about 2 mintues, the side vents cought fire and lit up. I heard, "oh wow! That looks like a mushroom." SHe's happy, i'm happy, the kid laughed a bit, it was worth the 9 dollars to the door. I"ll probably be using it more once I get the man cave done. :)
