Right you lovely lot!! Alcohol stoves... Iv never used an alcohol stove, always used gas..... But im thinking of trying one, i have a very heavy cheap ebay one on standby.... its been in the cupboard for nearly 2 years haha i nearly set my van on fire once with a homemade one that wasnt sealed correctly and nearly burnt my van down and when i moved it... quickly to get it out... yes you can guess... it was like shifting a fireball!! Anyway..... what do you lads n lasses use? and any suggestions will be welcomed. I would probably prefer one with some sort of pad thing in the bottom to avoid flare ups if it gets knocked (maybe not as bad at least) i recall speedster stoves do one and not sure which is best to use, probably only use it for boiling water and for making a pasta or similar... cheers this is the cheap ebay one 110 grams with simmer ring.
