I've only tested it at home, but I'm pretty pleased with the solid base it provides for pans. It also looks like it will give good wind protection

steve: is there any burn difference between having the pot directly on top of this stove, vs a bit of clearance
between the stove and pot eg say 1" clearance...just thought if it's directly on top of the heat source you don't get the space you need for the middle flame to do it's part too...or am i missing something?

After playing with it both ways, the pot sitting directly on the stove works most efficiently. If you have a space inbetween, the center does burn and you do get some more heat directed to the center of the pot, however your alcohol will burn out much sooner. With the pot on the stove and the side ports only burning, you do get lots of heat (more than you usually would need) and the longest burn time.

Got my stove last week and it works great! Small, lightweight and brought it to a boil quickly. Great product!

Hiya, Steve!

Just received my two stoves today.
For those interested, I immediately did a short comparison between the SteverStove and my Trangia. Placed 2 1/4 cups room temperature water
in a 1.5L pot.(I know, 2 cups is the 'standard', but my cashew chicken curry called for 2 1/4.)
Results:

Trangia stove= 4min 57 sec. to full boil

SteverStove= 4min 24 sec. to full boil

Both stoves used about 1.5 Oz denatured alcohol to do the job.
Not sure if it was the reason, but while in use the Trangia's flame pattern didn't reach the edges of the pot, but the SteverStove reached just past the edges, starting to curl around the sides, thus covering the whole bottom of the pot.

Best statistic of all:
Trangia cost (currently)= $28 Plus shipping.
SteverStove...............= $9 Post Paid.

A heckuva good deal I think. It's a winner!

I ship anywhere, the SteverStoves are currently represented all over the world!

Netherlands, figure $11 total, that ought to cover it.

Couple of pics of the stove in action from this weekend. I swear the juice that the baked beans comes in was boiling within 30 seconds on that little sucker.

These aren`t too bad

Somewhat heavy and much larger than the fantastic HEET burner but you can BBQ on them using charcoal, wood or other suitable stuff.

Flatpacks down into the size of a laptop too - the case is the base and windbreak on the photo. And it fits inside a Vario or OEM GSA pannier.

I love the HEET burner though, really simple and effective.

Excellent! Thank you...

SR:
Got your PM @ work... Excellent service...
Now it all depends on how long Customs will take to release it - as they probably try to figure out how much duty to slap on it...
