ZMart Cook Kit

Post by zelph » Mon Nov 23, 2009 2:44 pm

I've been doing some tests with a modified StarLyte stove under a Kmart grease pot and protected by a special windscreen made to fit in close proximity of the pot. The windscreen is separate from the pot, not giving any support. The stove has been modified to burn slow like the Volcano stove and the Ion stove. The Volcano is a stove built by Tony from Australia and the Ion, Sgt Rock from Whiteblaze. Test have been conducted in the last two weeks under 50 degree temperatures in my garage. This set-up has been coming up with 2 cup boils with 1/2 ounce of denatured alcohol. This video was made to day with temperature at 45 degrees and a simulated breeze.

I'll be back later with more info.

This set-up has been consistant at getting 2 cups to boil with 1/2 ounce of denatured in 50 degree temperatures.

It packs up small, fits inside the pot, the stove is in there also :D

Tomorrow more video, cooking ramen for lunch, 1/2 oz. fuel

Another good point about this set-up is .......no priming the stove in cold weather. Oh, almost forgot, the fuel won't spill out of the stove, 1 oz. gets completely absorbed. :DB:

Stove, windscreen and pot all together weighs only 5 oz.

What is your motivation behind modifying the Starlyte and not using a Z-fold?
A regular Starlyte and one of your screens in conjunction with my grease pot is the cat's booty!

This design of windscreen is more stable, prevents the pot from tipping. The regular StarLyte burns faster and hotter for this new windscreen, not as near efficient as the modified one.

I'll have to try the modified one using an EZ-Fold windscreen. (around the grease pot)

Zelph, can you run your new "curved" windscreen through your crimper? Just curious! :idea:

No, this windscreen is tempered and the EZ-Fold is dead soft alum.

:lol: nobody knows-------- the sorrow I'm feeling........ :lol: I have not sold a 1 kit so far....but that's ok, I'm busy keeping Super Stoves on the shelves. :D

I did test the kit today because I've been reading about folks interest in the Kmart pot. they were talking about the strainer portion of the pot and made meto think of a way to utilize it. And what do I think of when it comes to cooking????????.......you got that right!!!!....eggs :mrgreen:

The photos give a good idea of how it was done. Alum foil on the strainer sprayed with pam olive oil, 1/2 cup water in pot, heat and we got eggs done just right.............I'm getting attached to this kit :o Read the specs.....consistant at boiling 2 cups with 1/2 ounce fuel.
