I like the Ikea wood stove. I just made one and it works great. My MSR Titan Kettle nests inside, so it doesn't really add any volume to my pack. You can easily burn alcohol or esbit in it as well. I use it with a cat can stove, and you can use it to simmer easily since the pot height is adjustable by moving the tent stakes up or down. Put it on top of the cat can to bring to boil, then raise the pot up, put in the stakes, and simmer away. Total weight: 4 oz with windscreen & alcohol stove included. Total cost: about $8.
