So does the Green Machine. I used one to sauté some squash, serranos, and onions, then 1.5 pounds of salmon. I did have one mishap; I was using a Vargo Hexagon as its windscreen/pot support, and it overheated... after we doused the flames and cooled the stove so that I could refuel it, I kept a door on the Hexagon open... after that it was fine. I think I got almost half an hour of burn time before the boil-over incident. :)

I'll bet that got your adrenalin flowing :lol:

I tried using a stainless steel wire pot support on the GMachine and caused it to transfer heat to the container and made it flare up because of overheating. some heat was radiating back from the bottom of the pot also. The wire pot support held the pot closer to the burner. So it wound up that the pot support made of mesh was taller.

I recall the Vargo is solid walls for the most part and small in diameter/hex dimension, is that correct?

It is. I haven't tried the Vargo hexagon with wood yet, but it doesn't seem like it would do as good a job of burning it down to ash as your stove does. It's nice as a pot stand, mainly because it's light and stable. It's heaver than Caldera, but a lot less fiddly, so I prefer it.

A few weeks ago, I used it with a 750ml titanium pot (one of the ones from MLD) and your Ridgeline, the one you sent me with the Green Machine. I used said Green Machine as the burner (of course).

It ended up making a great lunch setup. I'd forgotten to pack lunch stuff that didn't require cooking, so while I was eating breakfast, I heated some pasta, quinoa, and water in the Ridgeline, then capped it and stuffed it in my pack when we headed out. By lunchtime it was perfect, and still warm. All I had to do was add some furikake spice and eat. :)

Did you use any saran wrap over the top of the can and then put the lid on or just the plastic lid?

I put the pot, still warm, inside a ziplock in case the plastic lid worked loose while in my pack, which it didn't.
