Ben & Jason,
I drink a pint hot beverage at breakfast and dinner as well as real cooking and the occasional water to wash my hair. Alcohol stoves fit my style, but when the trip is longer than two nights I have always switched to canister stoves. The Caldera has changed that. It is efficient enough that I am planning a six night trip with the stove.
The 4 cup Ziplock container that works with the AGG 3 cup pot has other uses also. I found that I needed to carry the bleach, tabasco, olive oil, etc. squirt bottles in a hard sided container because they would leak when squeezed in the food bag.
I have made dozens of alcohol stoves, I own Brasslite stoves, some mini-bull stoves, Sgt Rocks Ion stove and even an OES heat and simmer stove combination. My "go to" stove is the Caldera. The other stoves work fine, but I was always searching for something better. I am now satisfied with my kitchen kit.
The stoves that I find do not fit my style are:
The Beeer Can ESBIT stove, and
The cost was high and I made it worse by paying $20 to trade in my old tab Caldera for the new design and a cozy. However, I am a happy customer.
