Received the additional stoves, Steve. Many thanks. One of my earlier recipients demonstrated it to a buddy of his who's a scoutmaster. You may have to consider off-shoring production: I hear labor's cheap in China!

ugh

I am assuming the stoves that I ordered are stuck at customs. Stuff that I ordered from Hong Kong took less time to get here to Canada! What gives? ...must have patience...

The Canadian shipments usually take 10 to 14 days, and seems to depend on the port of entry and particular customs office. Sometimes they do hang up in customs which is the only delay going that direction. When did you order yours?

Ordered/sent paypal payment to you January 10, 2011.

Just getting impatient. :p I seldom check my mailbox, only when I know I'm expecting things other than bills and flyers. LOL

I got mine the other day and tried it out. Works really well. Very simple, nice little stove.

Payment just sent for a regular SteverStove with 14 flame holes.

I'm planning a trip later this year, and I'm gonna need something to cook on. For $9 shipped, how could I go wrong?

Thanks, stoves showed up today. I'm a happy camper.

Noticed on my run last may that there was a great deal of my route where finding a butane canister was near impossible, but alcohol was available. I'd be surprised if these didn't become my primary stoves.

Thanks again!

Don't forget the Heet in yellow or other Methanol to run it on.
Even 90% plus isopropyl will burn a bit dirty. it will still work, but will stain your cookwear and stoves.

The methanol burns clean.

Denatured alcohol(ethyl alcohol with a splash of methyl alcohol so it's undrinkable) also burns cleanly and is available at just about any hardware store, home center, or paint store. It's also less toxic than straight methanol. In desperation, even Everclear might work. One for me, one for the stove...one for me, one for the stove....

Isopropyl alcohol will be dirty regardless of purity because it's a "higher" alcohol with more carbon and hydrogen atoms in the molecule. It burns richer in open air because of that and results in more soot(and probably carbon monoxide).

I like to use Everclear if available. Besides the stove and me consuming it, it works as a anti-septic. Gotta be careful caring it though, open container laws can bite ya in the ars.

My stove came in yesterday, thanks! It looks great, and I'm looking forward to "testing" it soon. :)
