They boil water fast and you don't have to deal with fuel canisters. You can also make them from aluminum cans. In fact the best one I've ever owned was a home made one out of tin cans. It boils in 4 minutes and doesn't need a pot stand.
1 out of 1 found this valuable. Do you?

This is a very cool stove. I think it is better than the wetfire stove. It is basically a windscreen/fuel holder/ potholder/stove. It has many uses.
The Fuel burns long but it is not waterproof. It does not burn that hot either.
Even though the website says one cube will boil 2 cups of water I often find myself having to use 2 cubes. When folded the stove can hold contain 4 fuel tablets.
Again I have to strees that Weber fire starters are a much better fuel all round than esbit and WetFire. Some people will say that Esbit fuel boils better but I have to dissagree. It took 15 minutes and 2 Esbit cubes for me to boils 2 cups of water. It only took one Weber Fire starter and 8 minutes to boil the same amount. This was after the pot cooled of course. I think it is better than the wetfire stove because of its multiple uses and semi efficient fuel consumption. Heres the Link.

The Idea is that in an emergency you could use 2 cubes of WetFire to boil 2 cups of water. All it really is is a pot stand with a flat holder for a WetFire cube. I would use Weber Fire starter instead it only takes 1 cube to boil 2 cups and it is much faster. Plus it's cheaper. This is basically the same concept as the esbit folding stove ,except this is much less efficient. The one advantage is that it is much lighter than a esbit folding stove. And it folds more convienently but you can store fuel within it. Heres the link. Comments.
