Re: speed or effeciency

Efficiency can be gained by the types of food you bring is what I was getting at. 2 serveings of rice requires only one cup water. Shaving off half the time to boil 2cups. My double burner does it in 1:45-2:00min burning half the30ml of fuel allowing the other half for the simmer. I have a single bu...

Re: speed or effeciency

Here's a thought to consider about performance. One I first didn't notice until I wanted to pack inexpensive wholesome foods for over nighting 2-3knights for one - two persons realized and actually preparing them on my stoves . You need both types of performance fast boil times and long simmers. Oat...

Re: SuperCat Afterburner

Sound good , Around here now, is a beautiful time to hike not to hot not to cold below 6,000 feet. When I say more consistent. I have notice with the two super cats the boil times and burn times vary not only from windy to calm from hot to cold but more to time of day evening, late knight morning mi...

Re: SuperCat Afterburner

The burner on the right is a faster burn to boil. Burn times similar to the original burner behind super cat. The burner on the left has a slow burn time to boil in comparison. All three burners over the super cat have a more consistent burn time in varying conditions, I find. The two in front may h...

Re: SuperCat Afterburner

The condition are what prove the stove for sure. It did lite and had a good solid clean burn but I knew the aluminum would probably be to thin once at temp. Simple fix though , Two ways use a crumb catcher which rides on the lip and hangs down inside, weight of the pot and shape of the stove is pres...

Re: SuperCat Afterburner

Genie test failure at 3,000 feet . Aluminum is to flimsy for this design. It caved in on one side ending test. But was able to do a snow melt test before the collapse of the boil test. Half filled 1.2 q Imusa yield a warm 8oz. of water using 3/4 oz of fuel. Brought hyper cat short burner but ran out...

Re: SuperCat Afterburner

Apollo and sunflower burner, Genie in a bottle collaboration . Possibilities in combination seem endless. But the simplicity of the sunflower has got my attention. Straight vertical cuts and a few bends with your fingers. Wa'lla a very capable burner with a pot stand all in one. Apollo is a little m...

Re: SuperCat Afterburner

Even a solid sheet of metal against the wall of ther stove will draw fuel upward. The ole cappilary action there. :D Are you going to put a handle on the simmer ring and use it to adjust the ring after the water comes to a boil? I was wondering that my self. But without any ports would the burner s...
