Cubes Stunk Like FishVerified Buyer Reviewed by rbinhood from Wisconsin on Sunday, March 25, 2018The fuel cubes stink, horribly. Aside from the stink, the stove is well mande.
Great little back up!Verified Buyer Reviewed by Randy from Texas on Wednesday, December 20, 2017Great little stove for ultralight outings. The fuel can double as fire starter as well.
Hot itemVerified Buyer Reviewed by Section hiker from Virginia on Wednesday, August 23, 2017Perfect for boiling water in rainy conditions and the smelly fuel it comes with is probably the best all around fire cube.
AwesomeVerified Buyer Reviewed by S from Florida on Tuesday, October 18, 2016I love these little guys and I have quite a few around the house. I use them when primitive camping with our pocket stove, for lighting fires when it's wet out and for a quick bowl of soup when at the beach or hiking. They also came in handy during hurricane Matthew when we lost power for 4 days. A great gift for anyone that hikes for multiple days.
Fishy smellReviewed by Grass Valley from California on Monday, July 6, 2015We never even used this. W did not want to put it in our packs because we thought it would make everything small like fish. Bad idea to bring this backpacking with you. Wont the fish smell attract the bears?
Strong odor -- Smells badVerified Buyer Reviewed by See Jane Run from Central California on Friday, November 14, 2014This little pocket stove looks like it would work great. Haven't tried it out yet. I bought it to keep in my backpack of emergency supplies (bug-out bag) in my car. It made the whole car smell fishy. Don't think I would want to keep this in our bear box on our mountain property, or in a backpack. It smells so strong and fishy, I'm afraid it will attract bears!
Great Emergency StoveVerified Buyer Reviewed by Beach Nut from Talkeetna, AK on Sunday, November 9, 2014If not for the fuel alone, this is a great deal. The stove is useable, but may not be the best alternative for other than exigent circumstances.
Great lightweight stove system.Reviewed by Nammers from California on Saturday, September 13, 2014I bought this after my jetboil broke day 2 into a 14 day trip. It is a very simple design, less moving parts equals less opportunities to break. I also bought a titanium cook set that includes a small pot and a pan that fits on as a lid. The stove, fuel, lighter, and spork all fit inside the set. I've used it to boil water and to heat up previously rehydrated meals. I believe it would work to fry an egg or rehydrated hash browns as well. I put two cubes in at a time and just blow them out when I'm done. They can be relit later. I made a wind screen out of tin foil.....also fits inside the cook set. To extend the fuel life you can also add twigs and other small pieces of fuel. I think this system is great. Can't beat the weight. The fuel is the lightest on the market and because it's solid I don't have to worry about it spilling or leaking. I haven't had a problem with the smell as everything is very contained in the cook set. If you are an experienced backpacker or used to lightweight endeavors you will be happy with this. It isn't as efficient as a Jetboil but really, do you need to boil your water in 2 minutes?
The Bleuet StoveVerified Buyer Reviewed by dlahaisejr from Massachusetts on Saturday, August 30, 2014That stove is great when you want to boil water in a snap. Great for a hike in the woods.
Great emergency, backup or ultralight stoveReviewed by JamesD from Nebraska on Tuesday, July 8, 2014I purchased one of these and the Esbit version and they are almost identical.
One is for my car emergency kit and the other is for my backpack.
The Bleuet fuel seems to smell worse and leaves more soot on your cookware than the Esbit's but that's a minor issue since you can use pretty much any manufacturer's solid stove fuel or fire/BBQ grill starter in it (Bleuet, Esbit, Coglins, Weber, Military Surplus, etc...)
The stove itself will hold 4 fuel cubes inside of it so at least a day's worth of fuel and each tablet will boil more than enough water for a dehydrated meal for 2.
As an emergency or backup stove where you only have to boil water it works pretty well but there are a few drawbacks to these so I only gave it 4.
I'm not sure the rivets that serve as hinges will last very long so I would be cautious of using it for longer trips.
The pot supports aren't exactly the steadiest and may not work well with some pots and it really needs level ground so pots don't tip.
You cannot simmer anything so it's best as a water boiler. Given how some expensive stoves are only good for boiling water I don't see it as much of an issue though.
As long as you buy it for it's intended use and use cookware that fits, it should work well.
