I used this stove briefly - over 5 days in the Idaho back country during the summer. the stove is incredibly light and simple to use. I found I needed to go to the second line inside the stove to get a good boil in my MSR titan kettle. I made a light windscreen from aluminum foil, which worked well. The stove lit easily and primed quickly for this type of stove.
A pot cozy will help to cook pastas and such, but for quick boils and early morning coffee, it can't be beat.

Price comparison from GearBuyer: MSR Titan Kettle priced at: $47.98 - $60.00

Very good over 5 years now, a 5 on 07/01/2007 12:34:32 MDT Report Post Print

This was my first alcohol stove after the Trangia, which I used before these pepsi stoves were invented.

Despite a taped seam build, this stove is very good, still doing great after 5 or more years. I more often use my open faced red bull stove for summer, as it's a better fit for my small snowpeak 20 oz. Ti bowl.

Don't see how I can rate it below a 5.

The AGG pepsi stove is a suprisingly robust little unit. I can get a full boil on an MSR Ti-Kettle from the lower line.

Alas, any alcohol stove is hard pressed to boil a lot of water. For small solo style trips, this is the best.

Pepsi-can Alcohol Stove on 07/02/2007 20:48:28 MDT Report Post Print

Great stove for solo/basic water boiling. One of the few UL gear items that costs virtually nothing if you build your own. Mine is an older Pepsi-can version with the jets out of the top versus the sides. This style thus requires a seperate pot support but you have less wear & tear on the stove. Even after four years of heavy use it has held up well. My canister stove has collected a lot of dust since I switched to alcohol. Can’t imagine using anything else for 3 season use.

This is one of my favourite pieces of gear: cheap, light, functional, and just plain pleasing. I intend buying a few for mates for birthday presents as these aren't very common in the UK, and they should be!

Great for solo trips, nothing can beat it really.

Works great, compact, easy to pack, heats pretty quickly. I have used this one a lot, and am very happy with it. Very affordable as well.
