We fired up our penny stove today. First, we tried unsuccessfully to light it at the fill hole. Then we used our cook pot lid/frying pan as a warming pan, and that did the trick.

Next step is to take it for a walk and try to boil water on it.

I can totally see how easily this stove will become part of my kit. I can't wait to get out and field test it.

I know that learning about how much fuel I need is going to be trial and error but I have a question about fuel. How do I transport it? Right now, I have a yellow bottle of Heet dedicated to this stove. Do I have to keep it in the original package or can I use something smaller?

Any tips or suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks Izzy. I've seen guys do that with their denatured alcohol, I just wasn't sure if Heet was more corrosive. Thanks!

LOL@8oz not being enough alcohol. I like the way you think!

Try this design, it's what I followed and works well. It's self priming so no extra pan needed in pretty much any above freezing conditions.

Nalgene shampoo bottle filled with Heet and added to stuff sack, along with the kit. Thanks Izzy!

MicroPUR tabs added too!

I also swapped the film canister for a one of those $1 plastic match keepers with a tiny ferro rod on the bottom. It seems a little more durable that the film canister. It holds fewer cotton balls but I can keep the SA matches full length, which makes more sense to me since this is not my primary fire kit.
