    HERE'S an oldie!

    I just got a "Pocket Stove" sold at Aerostitch for 16$. Now how can you get any better/simpler? Its a fuel tab type stove and very primatively designed. Much like the old and still around Sterno fold up stoves, but! This thing boils 16oz of water in 2 minutes and 32oz in less than 5, all by tablet fuel source. Now, I have others and carry my JetBoil still, but this tiny efficient, almost unreal small and easy to carry anywhere on the bike is my second and maybe even my first choice. German made and so very minimalist kinda packing unit. Each tablet burns way hot for about 12 minutes and savable if not used up. This is by FAR the easiest cooker I have ever found and now joins my fleet of stoves. Randy

    I posted earlier about using a Coleman dual fuel stove that burns tank gas. I'll add to that the fact that we travel generally on the bikes for four to five months every summer. We travel mostly in the west, often camp for several days at an out of the way location, and almost never go to cities of any size unless we absolutely have to. When my 20 plus year old Coleman stove failed I got a cheap single burner stove that uses standard hardware store propane cylinders. Those I could find at even small country hardware stores. For the way and places we travel a specialized canister for a stove just isn't practical from a logistics standpoint.

    For folks who are out for a few days who can haul a canister or two some of the newer stoves are perfect but for how, where, and how long we travel gas from the bike is the practical way to go.

    I've really been thinking about the new Bio-lite stove http://www.biolitestove.com/
    It would be nice just to gather some twigs....

    Wow! Less than 10 bucks for a propane stove. Might be nice to have one of those in each car.

    As you can see it goes from barely any flame to "Saturn V".

    That looks like a great stove for the price. One question maybe you can answer. It appears that the flame is rather concentrated so I was wondering if you had experience using it with something larger than a cup or coffee pot... in other words how might it work with a frying pan or pot? Does it heat evenly or just create a hot spot in the middle?
