I agree that one of the most attractive features of the ROF stove is the low center of gravity. Also I suspect that the flames on the side work very well since you have a greater contact area. Not to mention that if you have cold water in the pot, convection will naturally draw heat into the sides of the pot. My issue is that it isn't versatile for various pot sizes. You can't go from say a Heine pot to a 1 1/2qt cook pot with the same stove. I suppose you could if you added a pot stand, but the stove by itself has to be purpose built for 1 size pot to truly be efficient.

This guy has a neat idea for a pot. Probably not big enough for your kit but has a nice dual function with the lid.

I was going to get one of those coffee decanters the other day at the thrift store but they wanted $4 for the thing! $:o! I have too many pots already.They are nice that they stack..but the coffee was the only one there...nice size!

The ROF evolved so all different size pots could be used. I'll see if I can find a photo of one.

I agree, I recently went out and made a couple of Heineken pots...I was very unimpressed. I'll stick to my tried and true set. I did replace the stove with my "mole" stove which has been working out nicely. :mrgreen:
