Rated 5 out of 5 by from Food For Thought How I use this stove. Cut off bottom of Campbell soup can to use as fuel tray( it will fit inside stove for transport)Have a MSR 475 ml pot REI number 401131. Esbit pot with 16 oz water, MSR pot with 16 oz water is going to be the lid. 2 fuel cubes on end should get Esbit pot to rolling boil in approximately 12 minutes. Once the bottom pot is boiling remove and place the MSR over the flames. Should already be warm and should get to a boil before the tablets run out. If not, use another fuel cube and extinguish when you get the water boiling so you can use it later. When I try this in a AVERAGE situation it works well. Will try and add pictures to demonstrate.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Neat little stove, but not perfect I bought this based on reviews, price, weight, and ease of use. On all of those accounts, this is a great little stove. At 7200 feet on my first backpacking trip, it took more than one fuel cube to boil the 2 cups of water. However, the next round of water only took the one cube. I'm guessing because the cup was already warm. You have to boil/heat water in batches as the cup is small-ish, but enough to make a couple of cups of hot beverage or a dehydrated meal pouch. You just have to take turns! I think I will be needing to get something a bit more substantial to boil more water at once and/or perhaps a bit faster on longer trips.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from LOVE this stove!!!! I bought this in addition to several other backpacking stoves - I LOVE how lightweight this is as well as how little space it takes up - easily my favorite stove now. Sure, I just use it to heat water mostly, but, my old Jetboil (which isn't that old) just gets no use - too bulky compared to this. I also have a woodburning stove (biolite) which is fine for car camping but too heavy and bulky to take backpacking. Yeah, the solid fuel does stink but I just wrap it in foil and the smell doesn't get into anything else in my pack. I use only a couple of the pellets for any one meal. Terrific!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boils in the cold! Used this to boil water and melt snow during a National Ski Patrol Mountain Travel and Rescue Level 2 Course in the Adirondack High Peaks. I added a square of wood wrapped in foil as a base so it would not sink in the snow. I also added a wind screen made of doubled over tin foil. It boiled 2 cups of water (the amount for a standard Mountain House) using about a fuel tab and a half in temperatures around 0 degrees F. Simple: no parts to break, the fuel can't leak or freeze

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great stove at a great price. I just bought this stove and took it out for a 15-day trek on the Appalachian Trail. It was light, compact, and perfect for boiling water for my freeze-dried meals. It took an entire fuel cube and 10-11 minutes to boil two cups of water almost every time I used it. My hiking buddy was using a pocket rocket, which boiled her water faster; but I preferred the weight of my fuel cubes to her fuel canister.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great simple little kit I have a very old Esbit stove made in West Germany. It's all I've ever used when backpacking. So, thought I'd purchase this little kit. When used with one tab (and the tab lying flat--not on edge), the flame lasted 21.5 minutes, start to finish. I was able to get 16 oz of cold tap water to a beginning boil in 14 minutes, poured that out, refilled it with 8 oz of cold tap water, which it got hot, though not a boil (flame was gradually dying down). (Of course, a more efficient method would have been to partially pour out 8 oz of already hot water, then replace that, but I was experimenting...) 12 fuel tabs fit easily into the stove, along with matches and lighter. More tabs could be arranged in, if creative. Obviously, this is not a temperature-controllable stove. But you could stomp on it, throw it against the wall, bend it back into shape, and it will still work. All in all, it's a nice stove for someone not needing every aspect of camping micro-adjustable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad for the money I used this during a four day backpacking in Northern California. Good stuff: this set is light. you get a big pot, a small pot, pot holder, fuel cube holder, a mesh bag and a spirit burner (similar to triangia burner). You get a lot of stuff for the money (I got mine as a gift so I got a LOT for the money :) ). It boils water pretty fast (6 mins or so). Not so good stuff: The pot sits pretty high above the burner. I recommend raising the burner about half an inch closer to using something else ( I cut a can and used it) to reduce boiling time. I wasn't a fan of the fuel tablets either (which needs its own review). I am not a tech gear junkie or too concerned with weight (not to say this kit is heavy, in fact it is relatively light and packs little). Therefore, I am more than satisfied with this kit. It did everything it was supposed to do without any hiccups.I highly recommend it

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best solid fuel stove there is! The "Esbit" Solid Fuel Stove is one of the most compact and light designs one can find for such a low price. The device sometimes has trouble boiling a full sixteen ounces of water with just a single fuel cube. If you are ever using this product, be sure to bring extra fuel to use.

Can wood be used instead of fuel tablets

Asked by: atvrider
While we've heard reports of people burning very small twigs in Esbit stoves, we've also heard that it can damage the stove and is very inefficient. We don't recommend it.
