PostHeaderIcon Affordable Ultra Light & Compact Survival Wood Cook Stove

TomTop has given me this awesome folding camp stove. This stove uses wood or alcohol to cook out in the woods. The stove is made of stainless steel and folds down flat for transportation making it perfect for hiking, camping, fishing and survival.

This is a very affordable stove considering its quality and usefulness in the field. It stays in my bug out bag with my food and cooking gear now. I have used it extensively on survival and hiking trips as the main stove for cooking meals and sterilizing water for drinking.

The stove is very easy to get going and burns just about anything that you can throw at it. You can cook with pine cones, sticks, grasses, paper and any other flammable type of fuel source. It also comes with an alcohol tray so you can pour in some alcohol and cook your meals. This is perfect for no burn zones or where open flames are forbidden but camp stoves are still allowed.

The wood camp stove measures about 5 inches square when set up and about 6.4 inches high. It weighs a mere 12 ounces making it one of the lightest cooking stoves you can get because you do not have to carry fuel with you. This is one of the reasons I love this folding survival wood stove. This folding wood cook stove is made of stainless steel to give it a long life and durability.

You can set up this folding wood cooking stove in seconds. Just open it up, insert the bottom tray and slide the two side tabs together. Finished.

Getting a fire started in this wood cook stove is just about as fast. You build a fire as you would with any normal fire. Tinder on the bottom, followed by tiny twigs or other flammable fuel. Then followed by larger sticks or other fuel source. This is very easy to light with a cigarette lighter, matches or even a magnesium and ferro fire starter. We have tried all of these methods with this ultra light folding camp stove.

The folding survival wood cooking stove comes with a convenient carrying case as well which makes it nice because your gear does not get dirty when you pack it away.

This is also one of the fastest stoves I have ever used since it uses real wood as fuel. Once you get the fire burning you toss on a pot and start cooking immediately. I have brought 2 quarts of water to a boil in mere minutes from the time I pulled out the camp stove from my survival bug out bag.

There is a larger opening in the front of the stove for feeding in fuel as you cook. This makes it good if you have to cook larger meals or a whole lot of water and need to keep the fire going for a while. I have used longer sticks for this and just keep feeding them into the stove as they burn down.
