“How is it that one match can start a forest fire, but it takes a whole box of matches to start a campfire? ~Christy Whitehead
Evernew America has come out with a new titanium alcohol stove. The thing is slightly heavy (and expensive) as alcohol stoves go weighing 1.2 oz. But it is built to last a lifetime and creates a flame that is, as far as I can tell, unbeatable by any other alcohol stove.
The exciting thing about it is that it fits into a titanium stand, the “DX” (weight 1.8 oz) that can act as a stove pot holder and wind screen and be used to burn Esbit or wood. The total set, on my scale was 3.2 oz (92 grams).
In my tests so far it was able to boil 2 cups of water (slightly less than 500 ml) in under 4 minutes (water starting at 65 degrees).
The stove alone sells for $46, the DX set including the stove $87. Backpackbasecamp.com has become a distributor for Evernew America. We don’t yet have a web store setup, but I have a small number of these stoves; email me at:
