this all stainless steel stove weighs in at 220 grams empty.
burner capacity is 4 ounces.
18ml of methyl hydrate boils 2 cups in 9:00 with flame out at 12:15.

i also tested it with a full 4 ounces of fuel. it boiled 2c in 9:30 useing 20ml of fuel. this was checked by weight and may not be accurate.

my over-all impression:
the ability to carry 4oz of fuel sealed in the burner is great for just a couple nights out. it's a bit on the heavy side for backpacking, but for kayaking that's not that important. the fact that it is all s/s is a great boon for us saltwater campers. the threads on the lid could be a little tighter, but it seals nicely on the rubber o-ring. the potstand is quite stable. the burner, stand, and simmer cap are sold seperately and came to a total of only 25 bucks.
i think it's a very usable stove, and the mirror polished finish is beautiful! :) two thumbs up!! :ugeek:

The Totanka is like a bigger Trangia....BUT burns
more efficiently than the trangia.
to Me it seems.
it is as hot as the Trangia, and ounce for ounce I
get better burn time from the Totanks over
the Trangia.
it even seems to blossom faster into that
pretty blue flame.
The simon stove is heavier, has smaller Holes but
more of them and burns much hotter, than any Alchy stove i have
used so far.
I get as much fuel efficiency out of the Totanka
it even burns better than my Jiffy heat i love so well
The small trangia will fit the Jiffy heat box and
pot stand, but not the Totanka
so i had bought a jiffy heat box with no stove off Ebay
so it is a trangia now.
i wish i could find a Mini box the totanka
would fit in.

Great information on the efficiency of the Totonka.

Looks like a set of legs can be made just like the Simon stove to fit the Totonka and be able to pack better, what are your thoughts?
