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.

Great little stove that I can carry with me every where I go. This stove is part of my ECD equipment and is a great little addition. Swivel cover allows me to regulate the flame . Lightweight and well made.

Great stove. However, I'd like to share a tip in case your stove won't open after you use it. After my first use, I let the stove cool down (it was slightly warm) and then the next time I tried to use it, the lid was fused shut. All my twisting, turning and grunting did nothing. Then my wife applied "kitchen science" by using a teaspoon to gently pop open the lid (the same way that you might with a jar of pickles). A vacuum had been created by the tight seal and this technique releases it. Enjoy!

I bought two of these to use with my solo stove and solo stove Titan. Mainly they are used as a backup as others have stated, if the weather gets wet and firewood is non existent. I am impressed first with the looks, and second with the operation, (much the same as a whitebox stove) but most of all with the fact it seals with the alcohol in it and doesn't leak on my other supplies. Common sense says do not put the seal lid on while it is hot, duh. And fourth, it is well constructed and doesn't feel cheap. For what it is, and what it does, how it looks and how it is made, worth every penny. This combined with a rounded body shaped flask, I can carry enough alcohol to sustain me for a couple of days.

Got this in before going out with the boys camping at Jordan Lake used wood first then next meal used Solo Alcohol Burner which was a bit slower in heating up water but did burn for a while work great to cook the food. And it keep my hands warm which was nice because it was cold that morning.

I got this burner along with my Solo Stove to use in rainy or snowy camping conditions. To try it out I used 2 oz of 70% alcohol and the unit stayed burning for approximately 45 minutes. It does take a little longer to get water boiling than when using the sticks and ground debris yet this is a great backup unit and I am glad to be adding it to my gear. Thanks

I bought this burner with the Campfire Solo Stove to use as a hunting blind heater, in the mold of the old fashioned Seater Heater. I fired up the burner using Everclear, and with the lid mostly in the closed position, the blue flame kicks out a nice level of warmth. In the hunting blind, air circulation not a problem, so I am hoping this will do the trick.

This is a good thing to have as a backup in case you're somewhere lacking natural fuel like a beach.

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.....
