I tried my stove by itself with pot on top and did'nt like it being unstable, I put it in an old sterno stove, the painted steel one, and it did a great job, it burnt the paint off the stove which sterno never got hot enough to do, I am going to get one of the lighter aluminum ones to use, they fold flat to 1 inch and only weigh 10 oz

Ohh, good idea!

I've been playing with some ideas, but none have worked very well.

Do you have a link to the product (or a similar one) you are using?

Been playing with my simmer stove.

Works very well at keeping things going after the main stove gets it going.

Also pretty good at warming up stuff you may not Want to boil.
(like soup you want to eat quickly, but you are busy doing other camp duties while it warms.)

White Box Stove

This stove is a knock off of the White Box Stove that has been around for a couple of years now. Here is the link to the White Box Stove web site. http://whiteboxstoves.com

The original white box had rivets like the Stever Stove but now it has a roll sealed top edge which is a lot stronger than the open edge. Also the White Box comes with more fuel capacity that the Stever Stove so you can boil larger amounts of water.

The White Box Stove costs a little more but better quality and a lifetime warranty may be worth it. Remember you get what you pay for in this world.

That is a nice stove.

But i think i will take a small step down in strength and quality, to save over $11 a stove. that is a 55% savings.
but for me, the best part is supporting a fellow ADV member.
If our purchases give Us a useful product built with quality and pays for Steve to get out there and Ride some more. then I say YAY!


As to Stever stove quality, very nice for the price.
the only wish i would have is to have the cuts all be perfectly square and the exact same height between units. but it doesn't matter unless you are trying to set something on more than one at a time. and I can't think of a easy Cheap way for Steve to get them all exactly the same.

and I don't think it would be worth all the trouble either.

Okay, Fireman Frank.

Here's how weak the Stever Stove is



It only holds a 200 pound guy. I'm sure this is not enough for the weight of an average dinner.

Also, the SteverStove is the same dimensions with the same flame outlet height as the white box as far as I can tell by comparing pictures. So the fuel capacity and boil time is the same. Any difference would be within a couple tenths of an ounce or so.

Sure, you can buy a White Box Stove from this spammer for nearly three times the cost of the SteverStove. It's done on a machine with a nicer rolled lip.

Or you can buy about three SteverStoves which function exacly the same, for about the same cost as one of this guy's stoves, and support an ADV rider who's helping put together WestFest 2010 and cooking ribs for members.

Go spam somewhere else Fireman Frank. I'll save the salty language since this is not in Jo Momma.

Fireman Frank is my fault I guess, I linked this stove over on the BackPackingLight forums in a thread asking about alcohol stoves. Sorry if it causes a stink... I didn't even know the whitebox stoves existed honestly, the thing I always saw when looking at similar style alcohol stoves is flimsy beer can creations.

Hey, when i got mine I weighed 280#. the first thing I did was stand on it and wiggle around like a Go-Go dancer. (not a pretty sight, your welcome)
and Nothing, no flexing, no wrinkles, no give at all. and the seam was still tight on the top lip all the way around.

With a rolled lip, the White Box should be stronger, a bit. but what are you gonna do, park a truck on it?
Also the White box comes in two sizes, but only One diameter. the "Original" is ~1/4" taller & the solo is ~1/2" shorter than the stever's 2".
(they don't list a diameter, but the run time on the original is so close to a stever I think they have a slightly smaller diameter)
and they don't have a simmer option.

So what do you get for the extra money, a slightly cleaner look and maybe a more uniform unit. but even if my three Stevers aren't perfectly the same, they came out of, at least, two build lots and the difference is less than a 1/16"
and that is pretty F'n close in my book. I know I couldn't do better.

great stove for a great price.

I got a chance to play with my stoves today. Very happy with them. The simmer stove works perfectly with my 3 cup Moka coffee pot. Took about 4 minutes to brew. This means I can make breakfast and coffee at the same time . As an added bonus, the stove, turned upside down, fits inside the pot without a problem.
