Ultra Light Alcohol Stove

I have all kinds of cookstoves,...from antiques to modern.
But when I saw this one, I had to give it a try.
It is constucted out of two soda cans, or in my case beer cans.:D
Total weight,...less than an ounce.
With 2 oz of 70% isopropyl alcohol I was able to bring 2 cups of cold water to a boil for 15 minutes,.....enough to cook a pot of rice.
It is supposed to work better with denatured alcohol, but I am impressed with the design.
Ya'll prolly have seen them before, but here's a pic with a peach can windshield.

This is great. I'm going to make one for my BOB and another for my regular camping gear. Sometimes all I need is a quick fire for heating enough food or water in the summer(regular 100+ in Texas) for myself or myself and one other. Seems like this will fit the bill cheaply and effectively.

BTW, here's the Don Johnston's High Performance Alcohol Stove ™
AKA Photon Stove ™
