I'm sure the Soloist is great, but I think it's strange to see it getting all the hype lately. Don't forget; the Cobalt performs exceptionally well, is as bombproof as any stove ever made, and can hold a whole honk-load (2.5oz or so) of HEET. If you found yourself needing to boil a large quantity of water, or cook for a long time, this is your stove. Now I want to figure out how to reduce the heat output so I can bake with it.....

The Cobalt will get better soon. It will be made with the Venom bottle and will hold 3.5 ounces of fuel and have a larger base/pot support. Efficiency will be the same and will still be bombproof and even more so because the bottle is .002 thicker than the bud bottle. My last test showed that a cold pot of water placed on the stove had no effect at all on the flame.

Add water to The Heet to reduce heat output? Anything to that?

I have not tried the water method to reduce heat output but have heard others say it works. In warm weather it might work. Give it a try.

Just finished a new batch of Cobalts. The green ones are spoken for.

I think you could make a mini cobalt using a 5 oz. Pure Silk shave cream container. The diameter would be 53 mm instead of 59 mm.

I agree, looks like it should be doable.
