Mein Trockenbrenstoff-Kocher ist Hier!


Look what arrived in the mail today. According to the customs declaration, it’s a key-chain from Hong Kong.

It wasn’t a key-chain at all, it’s a Trockenbrenstoff-Kocher!!


The kitchen scale says it weighs 3/8 of an ounce. That rocks!

Three Eighths of an ounce

The old-school esbit “trench heater” type stove weighs 3-1/8 ounces.

“Big Deal,” you say, “that’s only saving you 2.75 ounces!”

Well, that means I can bring along a whole extra pack of Ramen Noodles, smartass!

  1. I found a guy selling them on Ebay. I got to use it on two hikes this weekend, and I find that it’s much more fuel-efficient than the old-style esbit stove.

    I was able to bring 2 cups of water to a rolling boil on half a tablet. Maybe the improved ventilation makes it more efficient?
