Narrow flame alcohol stove for a Snow Peak 700? on 07/15/2011 15:56:33 MDT Print View

Gents,
Are there any narrow flamed stoves out there for this cup? I've tried a few stoves (penny etc.) but the flame is too wide and goes around the sides. Any ideas for a flame that goes mostly under?

regards,
Mike

Look for a non-pressurized, top burner. Side burner with flames jetting out = wasted fuel.

Mike,

You might want to check the Trail Designs website (www.traildesigns.com) for a matching Caldera Cone and stove. The cone will hold your SP700 at just the right height and is a great windscreen. I think the whole kit runs about $35.

easy to make and easy in use is the ion stove (slow but efficient)

I tried the vulcanostove (make a search on this site)
sometimes he became very unstable

A good concept but not so easy in use
Now i use esbit

Gram Weenie Pro or Venom Super Stove on 07/15/2011 18:59:43 MDT Print View

The Gram Weenie Pro will work. Also, Zelphs Venom Super Stove will work. I have both of these stoves and they work with my Backcountry 700 ml Ti pot which is slightly narrower than the SP 700.

Chad,

Just to help out the OP, do you use any kind of a pot support?

Gents,
This looks like it might do the trick nicely. There is a youtube video of him using it on a SP 700 too.

I use the venom stove from zelph on my SP700 and it works great. Not in Ti though, but its only 10 dollars and will last a long time.

No I do not use a pot support with either of these stoves. They sit directly on the stoves.

Penny stove for SP Trek700 on 07/15/2011 20:22:13 MDT Print View

I made a penny stove for use with my Trek700. Instead of making the jet holes outside the rim of the base I put them inside the rim. This causes the jets to fire all into the middle. It works pretty well in my opinion.

I use the Evernew Ti stove with my SP 700 and it works very well, with or without the pot stand.

I am very Happy with both my Gram Wennie and Gram Wennie Pro stove.

IMO you would be best off with a simple open burner, something along the lines of the Ion, a chimney style, or your Flatcat. The pressurized side burners and Venom stoves all suffered from poor efficiency with narrow pots. I was about to give up on narrow pots altogether before I settled on a caldera cone setup.

I actually did something pretty similar to what Mitchell did for my Snow Peak that works pretty well, too. I'm toying with idea of getting a Venom stove though. I like the idea of a one size fits all stove.

I have the Trek 700 and I use a caldera cone ti-tri ULC (with included stove). It works great. I also have just the regular caldera cone and it is even more efficient than the ULC. I highly recommend.

Just to throw another option into the mix. I have both the snowpeak 700 and 900. I have a Bushcooker LT 1 from fourdogstoves.com that works like a champ. It is primarily a woodgas stove but I use alcohol quite often in it, you can use esbit as well.
