I made myself a can of mini ravioli from chef boyardee, the food started to bubble and boil in less than 6 minutes, I was impressed with that.
I do have some questions about the product. It has little holes like it should have jet flames, but it never did that, even after having it run for nearly 25 minutes it just had a large flame coming out of the hole in the center where you light it.
it was also impossible to light when my ceiling fan was running, even if I had the included wind shield over the stove. It did light very easily once I made a "wick" out of a small piece of paper towel I rolled up and put in the alcohol. Maybe my alcohol was just old or something, it was about 5 years old and only 71% alcohol instead of the 91%.
I wonder if kerosene would work in this thing?
the Included mess kit seems pretty nice too, it is Miltec brand and If I remember right it was made in Germany.
My only real complaint is that cooking over the stove makes the bottom of the mess kit or whatever you cook on top of incredibly filthy and sooty. And that soot likes to smear onto whatever it comes into contact with. it cleans off fairly easily with soap, water, and elbow grease.
I will probably buy a couple more, the stove is extremely heavy duty, and the only thing that could cause this thing to stop working is if I lost it somehow.
I would recommend for sure.
This is a great package deal, a lot of good stuff for $10. Mine were all in brand new condition (2 sets). Outstanding, glad I got 2... I wish they had more, have lots of friends I wish I could refer to get a couple as well.
