    Tested last night- it'll great not to have to clean soot off like my ancient MSR/Whisperlite, and the simplicity of design is great too. It'll be perfect for a cup of Joe or soup before a midpoint on an overcast ride. We'll give it a good run camping too

    Thanks for the fast shipping, Shady!

    Wow, I just stumbled across this thread. Kudos for a great idea that's been going strong for almost 5 years!
    Being an incurable tinkerer that can never leave well enough alone, the first thing I thought of was... Why not make a band that goes around stove that has strategically drilled holes in it such that if you rotate it you can vary the number of holes that line up with the ones on the stove and thus produce flame. Voila - adjustable heat settings!

    Great product with lots of satisfied customers!

    I found a wire candle holder at a goodwill store - the stove fits perfectly inside the wire cage and supports the pot 1" above the flames. Just throwing that out there for others to consider. The holder looks like a round open soup can with three little legs.

    I've been using my stove for over three years now.

    Just want to add some irony, 3 days after the stoves arrived, we had another power outage for 12 hours.

    We enjoyed hot food thanks to Shady and methyl hydrate!

    2 of each on order. Leaving for AZ and UT in March. This will be my main/only stove. I will also be getting the sterno stove for wind control. I will drill a series of holes in the sides of the sterno so I can adjust the height of the alcohol stove. Coffee is an absolute must first thing in the AM.:deal
