thing is i want to be have something that i can use for a bit more than boiling water but i guess i can just practice cooking more advanced stuff on the spirit stove - but i cant see it being so great for melting snow.
ah ha! yes i have heard of both of those in the same thread! yes that would make sense although as the flames do lick up the sides - less so if i use a mess tin which is what i take if i plan on doing more than just boiling water. The pot actually sits snug into the bean when its packed down. at first i didnt use a tent peg to stand the cup on but after afew uses the pot would slide down when full of water and put the stove out and was a pain to get out.
was just having a look through trangias website - ITs been a while since i've checked out their stuff..mIght be taking a trip to the outdoor store so i can get a real look at their stuff again. also came across a thread on the forum about using the spirit stoves in winter so will try out some of their ideas. For trips less than 1 week its not really an issue. 1ltr will just about meet my needs for 7 days during the summer.
