Should be here any day now. REI seems to be the only retailer right now.

I'll stick with my beer can alcohol stove. Pretty much the same setup but it actually puts out enough heat to boil stuff at altitude.

On the official website I noticed they had an alcohol adapter, which I had planned to make anyway.
I've used them all, and each has good and bad points. This new Esbit has built in wind protection.
I collect stoves, mostly backpacking ones, but a few others as well. Here is my collection before it grew, probably three times that many now.

I found this while looking for a pic of the meta. Sounds right up your street.

It's almost as addictive as gun collecting, cheaper too.

Probably the best design out there, that is why an old one on ebay will run you more than a newfangled stove.

Has anybody received their new esbit stove yet?

I'm >< this close to buying one, but the only review on REI is saying that it doesn't work any better than the old, fold-out style. I have a fold-out style esbit stove and find it hard to believe that this new one isn't more efficient with its wraparound style base.

I recieved mine and am very pleased. I will do a head to head test one one these days.
There is no way the old one would outperform this unless you used alot of foil wind protection. With the new one it appears you will not have to mess with foil. (old esbits worked fine if you did the foil wrap thing).
The parts nest together in a small light package, comes with a mesh bag, in a moment of brilliance they put a lip on the pot so it fits down into the burner body, and cant slide off, plus it appears my larger Ti pots can still be used if I want to cook and eat out of a pot ( the stock pot, similiar to a jet boil, is not really the right shape for eating out of)
It is worth the $30, but I used the 20% off one item coupon, and my dividend.
