“"Backpacking is the art of knowing what not to take." - Sheridan Anderson

Last week I tested the new Evernew titanium alcohol stove. (see Related post testing the Evernew Ti DX with Alcohol).  This weekend I tested the stove in wood burning mode.image

The stove did well bringing 2 cups of water to a boil  (slightly less than 500 ml) in about 10 minutes (water starting at 62 degrees, ambient temperature about 80 degrees).

Watch the short video below to see how it performed.

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.

  1. It looks like it will work, but I'm still not convinced that it is better than the Tri-ti Caldera w/inferno.

    My biggest complaint with this new product is that there is not much room to hold wood and the space where you need to jam wood through with a pot on is very small. Looking at your video you have many sticks hanging outside of the pot.

    It does look like it is a lot more packable and this is a little lighter than the Caldera...I'm just not able to justify purchasing this unit yet.

    I really am interested in seeing you compare these two products.

    Quick question: would the esbit stove that comes with the caldera work with this stove?

  2. I'm not 100% convinced either. I really like how compact the Evernew is compared to the Tri-ti Caldera.

    I'm definitely going to do a side by side comparison of the two but most likely that will not happen for a week or two.

    The esbit will work with the Evernew - you put the 'power plate' peice on the top part and that holds the Esbit.

  4. If you have purchased a woodburning stove, but are in the dark concerning its installation process, I have made your task easier through the following guidelines learnt from my own experience. Safety must be your prime concern while setting up wood burning stoves. Bear one thing in mind that you’re actually going to put in a heating system in your house. An appropriate setup makes sure that the stove will continue to provide you the highest degree of warmness and the lowest degree of heating expenses for years to come.

    You should always maintain the cleanliness of your woodburning stove. Adequate maintenance is imperative to prolong the lifespan of your stove and avoid expensive repair works.
