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.

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.

  1. A neat little alternative to regular biomass 5 Star Review

    I was hesitant to purchase the alcohol burner because I had planned on using the solo stove with just sticks and twigs. But I got to thinking that it "might" be a good idea to have a backup source of flame, in case of a wet hike.

    I was not disappointed to say the least . Well, this little burner feels pretty solid, it has a thick rubber gasket in the cap to seal in the fuel you may store inside for your trip, and will fit perfectly inside the Lite, making real good use of storage space inside your pack. I ran one test burn so far, and it is able to hold enough fuel to bring one 30oz 900 to a full boil, with fuel left over. I used Denatured Alcohol which I found in the painting section of my local "big box" home store. I'd recommend having one in your kit! Just assemble everything and with one strike of the Sweedish Firesteel you'll be on your way to a nice hot cup of coffee or can of soup in no time. No soot to scrub off either!

  2. The alcohol burner is a must. 5 Star Review

    The alcohol burner is a great companion to your stove. Assuming you're in the backcountry, and have to conserve liquid fuel, the alcohol burner is best used when you just want a pot of boiling water for making a hot drink or reconstituting a freeze-dried meal, or if there's a fire ban, and you can't legally build a twig fire in your stove. Great for morning coffee when you don't feel like fiddling with a twig fire. But, of course, when you want to do some extended cooking, you can almost always use twigs for fuel. I pack the alcohol burner inside the Solo Stove.

  4. Great addition to the Solo stove 5 Star Review

    Bought this along with the small Solo stove. Works excellent. Put the burner inside the stove with the yellow Heet fuel. Lit up with no problems. Had water boiling in a few minutes. The snuff-control lid comes in handy when lower heat is wanted. Just lay it on top with the opening set to your preferrence. When done cooking, remove the lid using the attached handle, close the top and put it over the flame. Easy.

  5. Great Compact Stove 5 Star Review

    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.

  6. How to fix this stove if the lid won't open. 5 Star Review

    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!

  7. Self sealing, doesn't leak. 5 Star Review

    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.

  9. Great backup 5 Star Review

    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

  10. Bought for use as a heater 5 Star Review

    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.
