Fast to boil: 5-7 minutes to boil 32 fl oz of water
*Recommended to be used with a Solo Stoves (sold separately)
"The efficient air flow of the Solo Stove kicks this alcohol burner into TURBO! I've never seen an alcohol stove perform like this one did inside the Solo Stove. I'm impressed."
How it Works
The Solo Stove Alcohol Burner is a great backup fuel source and companion to our wood burning Solo Stove. When used inside the Solo Stove, this alcohol burner benefits from the Solo Stove's efficient air flow system and which means achieving faster boil times. A convenient flame regulator lets you control and delete the flame with ease. The screw top cap features a rubber gasket which allows you to store fuel directly in the alcohol burner for extended periods of time without leakage. When you're on the move, save your precious pack space and store your Solo Alcohol Burner directly inside the Solo Stove itself.
Denatured Alcohol Explained
The Solo Alcohol Burners uses denatured alcohol (a.k.a. ethanol, methylated spirits, marine stove fuel), methanol or similar fuels. Denatured alcohol is readily available at sporting and hardware stores and is fairly inexpensive. Denatured alcohol burns very efficiently and produces no soot or smoke. Unlike petroleum fuels, denatured alcohol is a renewable fuel (made from plant material). It's vapors are non-explosive and it can be extinguished with water in an emergency making it safer than petroleum fuels. Another great feature of denatured alcohol is that it can be carried in virtually any plastic container making it very easy to transport and dispense.

Two stoves in one outfit. Use wood when it is available and dry , rain comes along then use the alcohol burner in the solo stove to cook with. Or if you just get lazy then use the alcohol burner , like for the morning coffee.
I got a cough syrup bottle ( 6 oz ) from my pharmacists to carry the alcohol in for the alcohol burner. It's plenty for a weekend or 3 day trip. 1 oz per meal is the norm for me plus you can always use dried wood from around the campsite and save the alcohol.
One word of warning ... DO NOT place the rubber gasket on the burner when it is hot or use it to put the flame out , you will ruin it. Use the simmering / extinguishing lid instead.
For a good simmer I open mine about 1/4 to 3/8's of an inch.
The yellow bottle of HEET from the auto supply place works as good as the denatured alcohol.

The Solo along with the alcohol burner allowed me to make a hot breakfast on a river gravel bar after a night of drenching storms. I take the burner with me in case there is little dry wood when I take overnight kayak trips. After 9+ hours of continuous rain there was no dry wood to be had, This little burner had 2 1/2 cups of water boiling in short order. I prefill it at home for back up and have learned to trust it wont leak.

I recently bought two. They are extremely well crafted; almost too pretty to use, but use them I did. Positive o-ring seal holds in fuel without leaks or evaporation. Flame adjuster snuffer/cover allows accurate heat control. Puts out plenty of BTU's. Big enough to actually cook with, yet small enough to tuck in anywhere and oh that polished brass.....

Great job the seal is very good does not leak even in rough terrain ... great system when fuel cannot be collected :)

I love this little "Solo Stove Alcohol Stove" - Easy clean up - No smoke - Heated up my Pork & Beans in about 2 minutes.I've made several Ho Bo stoves from Coke cans,but this little baby puts them to shame. If you want a clean burn with no hassle then you want this great product - Keep Rockin' Solo Stove....!!!

The Solo alcohol burner is a great companion to the Solo Stove. I like to use wood for the evening meal, as it is easy to find in daylight, and the alcohol burner for early morning coffee. That's just me, but there are many other times when the alcohol burner is useful. Glad I bought it.

A great alternative to bio-fuel...leaves little to no soot on cook ware.Will work with high proof booze. (Everclear 180+%)

The perfect little back-up to the Solo Stove when weather conditions and mother nature won't cooperate! An essential piece of gear when gathering dry bio-mass fuel is hard, or the geography is sparce, such as; deserts! Well constructed and built to last! Extremely efficient, even at high altituteds like Colorado!

I've spent countless hours, albeit fun ones, fabricating my own alcohol stoves from discarded cans. There's simply no way you can beat this one, not even counting that it's under 20 bucks. Throw that in, and you need a new hobby.
