Caldera Clone Flissure/MSR Kettle/Evernew Mug/Starlyte Stove
Nesting package - plenty room still left for teabags and Starbucks Via!
Cone assembled with Kettle and below with Evernew mug.
The Starlyte has a wire stand - which I initially took off as unnecessary with a cone. But, When after the TGO I treated myself to the Evernew Mug (400ml -50g or so - from Bob n Rose) I replaced the wire stand and made the base so the stand was just below the base of the MSR pan when it hangs in the cone. The reason for this was that I found that the Mug handles wouldrest exactly at the right level on the slot in the clone when sat on the Starlyte - result! For the TGO I took a separate plastic mug - now I have another 'cooking' option.
Another advantage of the Flissure/Starlyte combo is that the lower section can be used as a windshield for a wider pan the the clone is designed to hold - e.g. I can just fit an AGG 3 cup pot or the recently acquired pre-used Evernew 900ml Pan. (no photo yet)
Nice - I just seen the script with the thread being updated. Must contact CP for the latest version. I have an old offset printer plate on hand for such a project.
I'd like an option to use my old ti mug like you have as a 2nd pot for a small weight penalty.
Impressed with the 120ml of fuel for 2 nights. I'm using 170-200ml
I know Kate they are really quite pathetic
104g for my setup and 50-60mls for 2 nights
Kate - you should be pleased to see men busy 'in the kitchen'
Rosswm - Cheers. That's a lot of fuel though- you probably 'cook properly rather than just boiling water/boil in bag as I do? I'm not stinting myself - I have 3 'boils' of 600-750ml water - a hot breakfast and tea/coffee, and pre-dinner hot drink/soup, dinner meal and tea/hot chocolate

I'd like to go down the Ti cone woodburning route for next summer, but think I'll go for a bigger pan setup first - maybe the AGG 2 quart (more like 1.3l) pot that I have.
I guess the secong pan/mug in the flissure could have a light stand so any 'cone-suitable' stove could be used.
Nice set up Mole, i cant make my mind up whether i would prefer switching to a meths/burner set up ......not really sure when Gas gives a much longer (less hassle?...) fuel supply...for 160g's extra......i think i might be tempted in the new year though.

Do you not have a windshield for the Crux?

Oh, come on, it's primal; me man, me make fire...

I confess that I just put the burner in the clone, and stick the head of a piezo lighter in it. I've always lit my meths burners this way, and never burnt myself; meths starts off in a very lazy way so you have plenty of time to remove your hand before the flame gets hot enough to burn you.

I've been using a MyTiMug system recently, which is also a Flissure clone:
I don't always take the plastic cookpot, as it's relatively heavy, but it does make for very easy cosy cooking, and rather more civilised eating than freezer bags...
I'm using a Sainsbury's Creme Fraiche pot as a measure and cup at the moment; very light, with a lid, and acceptable to drink out of. It has a nice transparent window in the side, with 50ml graduations, up to 300ml. It fits inside the MytiMug.

Well, my liver did grow back after I ruptured it in a skiing accident. No eagles involved, though.
Anyway, all that mythology is far too modern. And it's poetry. We're talking proper primal, caveman stuff, not mere purloining of combustion...
We'll be discussing the pros and cons of red deer vs reindeer hide for breathableclothing next, and whether Neolithic stone tools were a real improvement over Mesolithic microlith compound tools...

Treated with silicon for the tent or snowhole - without for the living room.
Kate - just a selection of probably 300+ stoves in the 'museum'
Very true. Some 'gems' though!
