There are a gazillion ways to make an alcohol stove and everyone has their own favorite design. Here is one relatively simple design that can be made with stuff laying around the house.

  1. Hi thanks for this post
    I’ve always heard of these and wondered if there was any point making one as I plan to bug in if I can
    On watching the video I thought why not give it a go as costs are next to nothing (the price of a can of coke ) and I have some bio ethanol around the house for a display fire we have
    was easily made and took no time at all but my wife was laughing at me as i made it. Then yesterday (Sun 16th) as she started making the dinner the gas tank ran out for the gas stove
    What can we do she asked ? Why not try the burner you laughed at the other day I said
    Needless to say I ended up cooking the potatoes and meat on the alcohol burner.
    I made mine slightly bigger than the one in the video so I was able to get a burn time of 35 – 40 mins.
    Wife now understand s the need for preps even if it to cook the Sunday dinner and not shtf
    Again many thanks and keep up the good work
