    It folds out into a mostly square box with a hole at the bottom and a grate for cooking on top. What I love about this is that in addition to being a good sterno stove, it also is very useful as a mini-grill for cooking. For example, I put it in a firepit, drop about 10 pieces of charcoal in and I can cook breakfast using very little charcoal. I think I have cooked with it either with wood or over wood in the past. I’ve had it for about 10-15 years and it has held up well.

    I love this little stove! I have used this stove from camping, to a hot lunch on a remote jobsite in the mountains of Colorado. Couple this stove with an inexpensive mess kit, a can opener and some canned foods, and you have a backpack-able solution to your food cooking problems.

    The design of this stove must surely date back to the 1930′s, or even before, yet the functionality cannot be surpassed. Sure, a WhisperLite is trendy, and might heat water and food a little more quickly than sterno, but the tradeout is carrying around those bulky gas canisters, which are only useful for the stove itself. Sterno, on the other hand, has many other uses while outward bound, and much easier to tote around with you than those canisters, believe me.

    I originally purchased my first Sterno stove in 1995 when I learned to flyfish after moving to Colorado. I needed something inexpensive, and easy to packpack, as I used to take off and spend two to three days fishing different rivers throughout the state. My whole system was easy enough to use to prepare some hot food after braving a frigid river on a November morning was a great morale booster. Whipping this out at a jobsite 10 miles from the closest Wendy’s, Subway or any food outlet made my fellow workers envious as I enjoyed a can of hot chili and crackers while they mulled through their bologna sandwiches or other such lunchfare. I was asked numerous times where I had purchased my stove, and after returning to work over the next few days, noticed a few other little stoves had popped up on the site.

    I gave it away to a couple of hippie kids who were ‘traveling’ through Colorado one day, and, can only imagine that once they landed on their feet, that little stove has been passed on to another soul who can put it to good use.

    I am back to buy another to stick in my “Grab and Go” bag, just in case I ever need to head for the hills, due to some sort of disaster.

    What aggravates me about most camping stoves is that they require you to carefully balance your pot atop the flame. They’re virtually all designed to only heat water. If you want to do any real cooking – with an actual pan- they’re almost useless.

    This Sterno stove, however, gives you a full metal grate to place your pan upon. You don’t have to worry about it collapsing or falling over from a super-precise placement required by, say, an alcohol stove made out of a soda can. Add in the clumsy wind screens, and it’s just a royal pain to do anything except heat water.

    I like to cook fresh eggs when I make a breakfast omelette. I like to have grilled cheese sandwiches, seared hotdogs, and carmelized onions on my hamburgers. Using the Sterno stove allows me the ease of use and flexibility to do real cooking on the trail.

    In addition, the shiny box reflects heat nicely to the pan, and acts as an integrated windscreen. Nothing else needs to be purchased, though a little aluminum foil can go a long way, too.

    Finally, I use several different burners with the stove. A Trangia stove is fabulous ( military surplus fits perfectly, civilian version inside a tuna can ). Various versions of alcohol burners including soda cans and side jets. I also use a different chafing fuel called “Safe Heat” – which is a bit more expensive than regular Sterno, but uses a wick and diethylene glycol as its fuel. It has a perfectly consistent flame until empty, whereas Sterno can vary a bit. One can will work for a three day camping trip easily.

    I have used Esbit tablets ( on top of a tuna can ), and the aforementioned placement of live coals from a campfire. Doing that last, however, turned the aluminum yellow-gold. It didn’t hurt the performance, at all.

    Use a real stove. Use real pots and pans. Get one of these.
