Zelph, I have not done much backing with the alcohol stove but it is on the backburner. I am still trying to find the right components to make a copy of the astronomically priced "Optimus mini oven". The link you listed looks yummy. Here is a link that might peek your interest. Includeds recipes and alky stove simmering technology. Enjoy!

My uncle has had his Optimus for 40 years and still uses it all the time but said it is showing signs of its age and would like a new one for a backup. Well, they stopped making them but just recently have brought them back for a rediculous price. About $80 U/S. Dollars. http://www.base-camp.co.uk/Optimus/minioven.htm

He is in his 70's and pretty much car camps and canoe camps these days but still loves to bake in the thing. Looks like a bunt pan. Maybe a pie pan would work for a lid. The problem is finding the shaped heat shield for the bottom to fit the bottom of the bunt pan. Three pieces of metal, no moving or high dollar parts---$80 ...Go Figure. :roll:

I have cooked the just add water betty crocker muffin mixes on the alcohol stove. Pretty easy. The "pan bread" website are probably just modified bannock type recipes, easily found on the web. I bake stuff with bisquick all the time basically the same idea.

Does the center pan have a hole through it's center like the bottom pan? I have a 2 cup pot that might work on that principal. It's a pudding pot. I used on the Stilletto stove.

Russb, I'll do some searchin for banock bread. (with raisins and nuts and other goodies) Over the holidays I had a delicious Fruit Cake. I always thought those things would last along time without refridgeration. Sliced thin, indivdually wrapped, just right for some quick energy, no cooking involved, just warm it a bit on top of the pot while heating up some water. (That made me drool :oops: )

Here's a photo of the bottom pf the pudding pot. I does'nt have a hole at the top of that cavity/cone.

The center pan does have a hole in the top to allow the heat to enter the cooking area and there are holes around the side of the lid to allow heat to escape. The bottom pan allows heat to go up thru the hole while at the same time deflecting it from burning the bottom as there is dead air space between the oven and deflecter plate. I have bought a few of the jello molds and bunt pans but have not found the proper fit so that it is stable. :roll: On a side note, I wonder how many ovens Oops owns :?: :lol: :lol:

That is really niffty little stove/oven. Does the pot sit down into the cavity and rest on the iron grate?

russb, I have used the bisquick muffin mix in an egg poacher to make donut shaped muffins. Boiling water bath method :)

Ridgerunner, I'll look in the thrift store for the frying pan with the cone in the center. The cone has holes in it. It was a popular tv sales item 10 yrs ago. You'll remember, they are showing up now in the thrift stores, keep your eyes open. I purchase it if I can find it in the pile of pots and pans that I showed you in the thrif store movie.
