Re: Stainless stove problem

Nice! Looks like it's made well. Is it your first attempt using the aluminum water bottle? How does it react when you put a pot of cold water on it? Flames go out?

Re: Stainless stove problem

Here's my experiment with open top alcohol stoves. It's made out of a dollar-store aluminum water bottle. I tried making one out of stainless, but the aluminum heats up and blossoms much faster.

The Newb's stove
