Abstract

There are a lot of miniature stoves on the market from many different vendors, and the spin doctors for every company are doing their best to persuade you that only their stove will meet your needs. Somewhere along the way a lot of hype and myth has developed. It would be nice to try to set the record straight. At the same time, theory is all very well, but it helps if it is translated into concrete examples. So this article focuses on the design and performance of stoves in general.
