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.EBY255_img4

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).

EBY255_img2I have not yet tested the stove with wood, hopefully I will get to do that next weekend.  I also plan to do more comprehensive testing, comparisons and timing in using it as an alcohol stove.

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:
RMorris AT backpackbasecamp.com if you are interested.

In the mean time, I thought you might appreciate this short video:

  1. Can you tell me how much alcohol fuel was consumed to boil 2-cups of water with the DX?

    thanks

  2. J - It took about 1.1 oz of alcohol to boil 2 cups of water (starting at 65 degrees), this was inside with no wind.

    It was just a quick test, I plan to do a more controled scientific test when I have more time, but my general impression was - the stove uses more fuel than other alcohol stoves I've used.

  3. Have you noticed any discolouration of the titanium?
    Most of my evernew pots are now purple gasoline colour...

  4. Yes, the titanium does change to a purplish color where it got burned. So the "Evernew" doesn't look new anymore.
