Perktube1: MD Prepper, it seems one could drill two to four appropriately sized small holes at the top there from front to back, and insert some small steel skewers to make a base for a canteen or steel cup.
Chuck Littleton: I have had one of the Pocket Cookers for a long time , many years. I have cooked a lot of meals with it including for two friends and myself on it using one of the home made Coke can alcohol burners ( stove ) as the heat source , it was a 4 night , 5 day canoe trip back in the mid 80's I switched to a Trangia burner as the heat source for it and It is NOT light weight , at almost 2 pounds. Any way not as light as the Titanium stove I use today when backpacking. The Pocket Cooker is packed in with the paddling supplies today and you can use a wide variety of items as a heat source in it.
kurt brayford: i have one,it is light and reliable it seems to burn stuff for longer than an open fire and concentrates the heat up for cooking,it can be annoying to unfold and fold up some people may break it if not careful and quite smoky.
james ollom: i bought my first pocket cooker at cabelas in 1994 . i used it a lot and lasted for over 10 years . then someone borrowed it and never got it back .
db Cooper: I've had mine for the better part of 15 yrs if not longer, i ordered it from sportsmans guide when u had to use the mail order sheet hahaha, it's been repainted prob 5 times but it still going strong my only complaint is that my sheath is purple in color oh well, highly recommend it cheers
Erin Owl: Great review. Thank you.
Daryl Parsons: garbage...not worth it. I had one and it broke so fast..the little rings break.
EffyJnr™: Been looking to locate one of them, have you got a link where I could get one please?
R.I.P. Democrat Party: $12.99 + shipping .... Amazon ... I like the design better than the MUCH MORE expensive Firebox and sterno stove.
brimstone33: Increase the versatility by drilling a few small holes in the sides for inserting wire tent stakes to make a shelf to allow alcohol stoves, Esbit tabs and charcoal briquets to sit closer to the top. Would like to see it made from stainless, aluminum or titanium. Good review, thanks.
bluemountaindrivepae: A hobo stove made from a big can would be lighter and cheaper.
bluemountaindrivepae: Made in China and to heavy for backpacking.
evilevilrick: You can also use a penny stove inside it. If you use fuel tabs, put the fuel tab on a small stone or a tuna can, even a chunk of a 3 to 4 inch thick green log. The fuel is then close enough to heat whatever you are cooking. Had mine for years and have never used a wood fire in it and the stove is still clean.
MDPrepper: Agreed! These are one of the best camp stoves on the market. . .but I don't hear about them enough!
garyl43: These work great with an Esbit or Trangia alcohol stove. The combination of this and one of those alcohol stoves is compact and CHEAP.
David Fletcher: where can get one?
David Fletcher: cost?
Spikestrip55: I just bought one of these and am wondering if charcoal briquetts would not only work well, but also have an advantage of not sooting up the pot and stove... Have you tried that yet?
JACK Alleman: Nice review.The only thing that would have made it better was to burn it.The essence of human nature is fire,it provides heat, cooking,and a lot of overnite conversations.Not only is the fuel free, but it gives the food a great flavor.Pilgrim job well done.
tybeejeffro: I always dig a small trench into the wind and lay the stove across like a bridge. It gives you somewhat of a Dakota firepit with higher burn temps and better consumes the materiel.Then when you're done, cover the trench and what little ash is in there with the excavated dirt for a "leave no trace site". I ordered a PowerPot V to use in conjunction with the stove and give me a nighttime method of charging devices. Uses very little amounts of wood to charge and boils water for a nice cup of cocoa!
