Why do we have to make a stove to boil 16 oz. water under 3 min.This stove that i made 3 of them between last night and today i was trying to make a better stove for the jet boil not to good. I already got one that works ok but trying to make better.Now this stove is a honey a cheese can and tomato juice can bottom fits just right .The holes are push pins 3/4 down at a up angle 12 holes.The can is 2 in. od 2in. hi i put a wick around the bottom inside jb wed to can. The fill hole is left as it is just take out the rubber plug looks like a 1/8 hole. Here is the kicker on a 1/2 oz. fuel 15ml boil time 3.40 sec. total burn 4 min.I did not like that so i tried 17 ml. boil real good 4 min but now i got a 7 min. burn go finger. The can is a beef stew can 4 in. o d and the flames does not came up the sides witch i was trying for i guess with a windscreen it be faster.

I think this a really good idea. I'm not familier with Cheese Zip, but I'll look for it :)

oops56,

If You used the Cheese Zip bottle as the inner wall on the GrinchMT stove You are looking at, it will probably prime faster.
