The folks at Sterno ( Sterno Group LLC, a subsidiary of Candle Lamp Company LLC, a portfolio company of Westar Capital LLC ) have two new(er) offerings I thought I'd pass along. First is the Sterno 70186 Camp Stove Kit – a new take on the classic folding stove Sterno has offered for decades. Yes, it folds like the classic but comes with a pan, cup and spork. It is offered for about $13 depending on the outlet. Classic stove offered for decades. About $11 (Wallmart price). The new stove 'kit' folds neatly into the pan. Much nicer than the classic. Size - 7.4 x 7.1 x 3.6 inches and you will have to tote about 2 pounds. It's designed to use either size of fuel can – and that's the cool part. Or the hot part actually…. As I've noted in other posts, Sterno canned fuel is safe for indoor use but really doesn't get hot enough to cook with – there is no frying hamburgers with the canned stuff. All is not lost. You can use a Trangia burner – or a soda can stove for the heat source. Denatured alcohol burns much hotter and will work well to cook your hamburgers…and other fun foods. Is it worth the extra 2 bucks? Well if a pan, cup and spork are part of your kit already, maybe not – but if you are building – say, a DIY Disaster kit (hint), $13 will give you or your family a lot to work with and will set nicely in your Yukon ruck. Sterno stove #2 is the Sterno Inferno Ultralight Camp Stove – about $25. Comes with lid, pot, wind screen, and base unit. This is really cool kit stuff as well. The pot holds two cups of liquid, usually the amount of hot water needed to bring a Mountain House meal to life, and will work well with most wet pack canned foods. The cup has heat sink fins very much like the far more expensive Jet Boil system. The Sterno system even comes with a snuffer to put out the canned fuel, and it will save your fingers as well. Consider this - if you are not there, can your significant other/kids/grandkids safely operate your current stove setup? With this, they can and it is safe for indoor use as well. At 4.5 x 4.5 x 7 inches and 9.6 oz (not counting fuel), it is lighter than the stove listed above. The system will store two full cans of the 7 oz fuel. Or. Or you can also use a standard Trangia burner/soda can stove and carry a bottle of denatured alcohol for fuel and you should have quite the set up. Yeah, there are "better" stoves – I know – I already own most of them. But for a low cost kit to sit in the car or an emergency kit for the home…well, it is a low cost option that gives you more options for your cooking. Hot food on demand can be a big morale booster and in cold weather, a lifesaver. The canned fuel will last –if not forever, certainly a very long time. I have a can made in 1947 that still boils water… And canned fuel will sit, safely, in the car or home for years with no loss in heating capacity. Worth a look, wouldn't you say?
