I read all the posts, but I didn't see one thing... maybe I missed it.
Does the bottom of the stove get warm/hot?
Would it burn whatever it's placed on?

The whole stove does get hot, but also cools very quickly.

I will try mine on a 2x4 tomorrow and see what happens on a long burn.

Thanks! I appreciate that.

I would be cooking inside my van and want to make sure I won't burn it down

So it would be wise to get a brick or something to place it on, maybe something spill proof?

I would think a small cookie sheet with a lip would work fine.

A air-bake style would insure no heat got through to the under surface, but no lip.
I'll try and take temp readings with the non-contact thermometer too.

Any kind of tile from the hardware store like lowes and home depot would work too, and cheap!

I have a couple of those same coffee pots!

I have used the stove on the tailgate of my truck- no damage, but YMMV, IANAL. etc... I won't be paying for your burnt up van

I burn them on my plywood bench top all the time and they leave no mark, but I also would be interested in the actual temps right under the stove. (thanks MPanther)

I have used mine in my kitchen and find that the fumes from the methyl alcohol in heet bother me. This probably would not matter at all if I was outside. I also find that the fumes from denatured alcohol do not seem to bother me that bad. Be careful burning in the van.

Ok, digital "meat" thermometer in water.
Non-contact hand held thermometer good to 932f.
Stove and simmer loaded with 1.5 oz Heet.
Pot with 4 cups water and a see though lid on.
Ambient temp 60f

Stove on ceramic trivet (like a tile)
1 minute warm up
cooking for 5 minutes Lower Stove Temp = 215f Tile = ~138 Water = 145
10 minutes - flame out - LST = 220f T = ~138f W = 200f
1 minute cool down - LST = 117f T = ~120f W = 200f

Moved to simmer, had it warming up while doing the cool down.

Simmer on 3/4" pine board
1 minute warm up
@ 1.5 minutes cook time water boiled at 206f indicated.
@ 5 minutes LST = 158f B = 145f W = 208f boiling.
@ 10 minutes LST = 160f B = 145f W = 208f boiling.
@ 14 minutes - flame out - LST = 160f B = 145f W = 208f
1 minute cool down LST = 117f B = 125f W = 207f
10 minute cool down LST = 95f B = 85f W = 185f
(done with pot still sitting on simmer stove)

And there ya go.

I think the ceramic trivet was pulling heat out of the stove faster then the board and radiating it for better cooling.
There is No marking on the board. looks just like it did when i started.

With this info, i would just use a nice 6"X6" 3/4 pine or better board under it.
(or maybe a nice looking hard wood, 'cause it's fancy)

If you are cooking pasta, heat the water to boiling on a stove and keep it there with a simmer for about 14 min on 1.5 oz fuel.

Your stove is just about the coolest (hottest?)

Tried it out with some HEET the other day





anyone ever tried one of these with one for a cooking base using the stove as the heat source ?

Here's another version. (same thing?)
http://www.amazon.com/dp/B001CW9ISA/...SIN=B001CW9ISA

I think you wouldn't get good run time as this platform is designed for heat coming straight up, and the Stever works best with flame coming out of the side holes only. burns longer that way, plus better heat distribution.

But if you modified the base to have it sit flush with the bottom of your pot while on the platform it should work very well. and what are you out if it doesn't work, $7?

I am thinking on finding a can that Just fits over the top and cutting the base off with one of those "side cutting" can openers. then after you get it warmed up, you drop the "lid" on it and it doesn't have to have the pot on top. should be great for use with camp grills and this platform.

Good find!
