This time, I take a look at the Esbit Pocket Stove (combined with the Stanley Cook Pot set). The Esbit Stove is a compact design that burns the solid fuel tablets, which are handy for camping or power outages or that sudden emergency. I found the Stanley cook pot set at a very good price and added it to my gear. Here they are in action:
I had to burn a complete fuel tablet to boil the water properly. It was only about 12 ounces. Thus, if you’re planning on boiling more water for rehydrating a freeze-dried meal, be sure to have plenty of tablets with you. They’re small and light, so it’s not a burden to have them along. Of course, the stove folds neatly, making it easy to carry as well. Both items would be perfect for your get home bag or bug out bag.
