  1. I've never heard of this! Excellent information. Does it smell at all?

    1. Hi There. There's very little smell when the stove is lit. It's a faintly sweet smell but not strong. When the fuel canisters are running out of fuel they start to smell like burning cloth. That's our hint to add more :)

  2. I've been looking for a used one. They are scarce. I'm glad to hear that they work well for tiny living, too. I, too, wonder if it smells, please, because I have MCS, too.

    2. Thanks, Kelly,
      Yours is the first feedback I've read about the oven.
      I've searched high and low for a used one, too, and they are scarce. I'm getting a two-burner, and a small electric oven. I won't need it often, so it will be fine for when I'm plugged in or on solar. Gas grill is in the future for me, also. I hope to be able to use my griddle on it for pancakes, etc.
      Thanks so much!

  4. Thanks for your review. I own a boat and have thought of switching from an Origo stove top to an oven. Other owners of my type of boat have gone with propane but looking at alcohol, it looks like it would be a good way to go to prevent extra work from running lines and getting a propane locker that vents properly. I like keeping things simple.

    I’ve also been looking at tiny houses since around the end of 2007. I really would like to build one someday. I’ve thought of a tiny house as off-grid as possible and with the complications of installing a propane setup, this alcohol stove looks like a good way to go. Instead of propane heat, I’ve been looking at wood heaters. Boat wood heaters mostly since their sized appropriately for a tiny house.

    I find it interesting how so much that goes on in the boating world can transfer over to simple land living. Thanks for the ideas. Now to work it into the budget of the tiny house and boat work.
