Well i tell you get one i been doing a little testing this morning a small type sterno can fits great.It do a boil in the canteen one and the cup put on tin foil cover both had 16 oz. water cup was a little faster. Only thing got to be done at the top of the front sq. hole cut 2 slots right and left so you can silde a suffer plate to put it out.Also after the sterno is all use up put some houshold insulation in and use it that way with some alcohol. I think that make a good one to keep in the car.

It showed up, I can see it..When you first tried to post are you sure clicked "submit" if it was early in the morning you may have still been a little fuzzy eyed :mrgreen:

What is supporting the bottle inside the stove? Does the ridge on the cup rest on the top rim of the stove when heating the water?
