Fast to boil: 5-7 minutes to boil 32 fl oz of water
*Recommended to be used with a Solo Stove (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 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 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.

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.

I bought a high tech stove, then realized that the number of fuel bottles required for my needs would be heavy, and stupidly expensive. A friend highly recommended the Solo Stove, as I would not need the fuel bottles. So I got one, with the Pot 900, and what the heck... I ordered up an alcohol burner too.
This little burner is way more than just a liquid tight fuel container. There are some serious physics at work here! More importantly, with a spare 20oz. fuel bottle I can meet all of my needs and then some, with a fraction of the weight, space, cost, and no packing out spent fuel containers! Super cool.

I've used the alcohol burner many times already and am really impressed. Using alcohol is much safer than other stoves using other fuels. It works great with the Solostove! My only complaint is I have dry hands so had to put a little electrical tape around the lid so my hands don't slip when opening or closing. non-issue. Also I figured out that if you are in a winter scene or are stuck for a little tinder having this along with the stove means you can dip a couple twigs into the alcohol before starting a woodgas fire to help. Works great - and can make alcohol fuel last much longer if you're only planning on using it for emergencies :)

Perfect fuel source when everything is sopping wet! We live in a rain forest so having this alcohol burner really can save the day when everything is soaking wet.

brought burner along snowshoeing. It fired right up, was roaring in several minutes, and boiled a quart of cold creek water in ~ ten minutes. I was impressed that the fuel heated up so quickly starting from a cold state being stored in my backpack.

The Solo Stove Alcohol Burner fits right inside the Solo Stove & has a leak proof seal to safely transport enough fuel for 2 or 3 cooking sessions. This product works great in damp, and even stormy conditions with a suitable windblock making it the perfect solution for those rare conditions where it might be difficult to suitable dry brush/twigs to fuel a fire. A fantastic accesory for overnight kayakers, or back country skiers. The design of the burner creates a well balanced flame, and what I like best is that it burns so cleanly that it leaves no soot marks on the bottom/sides of the pot so cleanup is a breeze.
