QuickStove: Cube Stove
It has two hinged "wings" that can be adjusted for different cooking applications. The CubeStove comes with a special dish or cup and two fuel disks. This stove has 7 cooking positions for using small cups up to large pots or pans. Another nice feature is that it can be flipped upside down and use the bottom as a small grill, for those of you that want to do some primitive survival type stuff.
What drew me to the Cube Stove was that it can be used with different fuel sources such as: wood, alcohol, esbit type tablets, burn gel, and charcoal. So unlike gas canister stoves - you have options. In the field or a survival situation these types of options can make a bad situation less crappy.
Overall the Cube Stove is a good buy and a great alternative to a gas canister type. As most of you know we started the "Building a Bargain Bug Out Bag" Series; so you will most likely see the Cube Stove mentioned in that series in the future. It a heavy duty piece of gear that will last you a long time. We will be posting a video review of this soon so that you can see it in action.
