This is the Stainless Steel version, for another $20 they offer the same exact stove in Titanium. I have both. The only difference is weight. Right out of the box, it’s clear why it has a very good reputation in Europe. The price is a bargain. This is a well designed, well built entry in the ultralight folding-woodburning-stove market. I like it and admire the design features. Build quality, fit and finish are all excellent. It sets up and breaks down easily and smoothly and in mere seconds. No sharp or rough edges anywhere (which would only take a touch of sandpaper to fix anyway). It folds completely flat. It’s very stable. Every metal stove is going to darken with use, but mine has not warped at all. Cleans up easily. You feed twigs, barks, wood scraps or whatever in sideways. It burns hot and pretty cleanly, and like most pocket stoves it reduces everything to a fine powdery ash. This is a good option for an area where open pit fires are not an option.The Bushbox cleans up pretty easily after a burn, but it does blacken and some soot always remains. You’ll definitely want to use a sturdy ziplock bag to keep any residual ash from permeating your pocket or pack. I like the Bushbox a lot. Its lines and aesthetics are nice and the little campfire logo brings a smile at night illuminated by the flames. It’s a quality product in every way.Its direct competitor, and closest rival in terms of appearance and visual design, is the USA- made Emberlit stove, which is also available in both stainless and Titanium. Each has it’s own relative advantages, but each is more alike each other than different (especially compared to a very different approach like the Vargo, or the excellent-in-its-own-right Folding Firebox Original which folds on hinges rather than disassembling into separate plates). Side by side comparison: If you are trying to decide between the Bushbox and the Emberlit it’s a VERY tough choice between two very good and well crafted and extremely similar stoves. The Bushbox is smaller than the Emberlit, with a smaller firebox capacity.I like both and you can’t go wrong with either. But based on relative size and proportion of their fireboxes, the ‘feel’ of each when a pot is placed on top, ease of feeding wood from the side with a pot on top, overall size/height, spacing of air holes etc, I have to narrowly give the first choice prize to the Emberlit, by a nose and photo-finish. Personally I prefer the incoming air from the bottom (Emberlit) and a wider base than top (Emberlit). YMMV. But these are extremely minor differences–honestly, both stoves are excellent at what they do and both perform brilliantly. The Bushbox is currently cheaper than the Emberlit, and the price is a steal IMO. You may, like me, wind up deciding to get both the Bushbox and the Emberlit. It can be a nice luxury to have a ‘second burner’ camping out, and with fold-flat stoves bulk is not an issue. Both only need twigs, and it’s great to be able to make coffee AND cook breakfast at the same time. And for disaster preparedness, two stoves feels justifiable and prudent to have. I do love my Bushbox. It’s a keeper. Kudos to their design team. German quality. Hope this has been helpful.

I decided to buy the Bushbox because it is a) the cheapest of the small hobo stoves,b) the only one which has an ash tray (the solid base plate which also acts as soil protection),c) has no funneled top (bad for larger pots),d) more versatile (especially with a Trangia burner) ande) trivets are already included and does not need to be bought as accessories. The Bushbox is perfect when you intend to cook for 1-2 persons, it actually works surprisingly well, I needed far less wood than expected when I boiled my first coffee on it. You should however carefully read the manual – especially the part about not blocking the base plate (to make sure the stove has enough air) and the disassembly instructions. The Bushbox has a very clever “click-together” mechanism which makes it extremely stable, the pieces cannot come apart. To disassemble it you need to grab the short side sections at their upper edge and then gently pull them outwards/upwards. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment (1) Reply 94 of 98 people found the following review helpful Best stove of its type available, December 10, 2013 By Passinthru – Verified Purchase(What’s this?) I did research on this type of stove for months before purchasing. The things that make this stove stand out from the others are:1. Price – lower price than any other stove of its type and size. Shipping from Amazon store was very reasonable, too.2. The multi position ash pan is designed to enable use of Solid fuel tabs or alcohol stoves. This feature works very well and is lacking in any other stove of its type.3. The fuel port is above the fire grate instead of at the same level. This helps keep the fire contained inside the stove and makes adding wood easier.4. Everything (crossbar pot supports) includedThis stove assembles and takes apart easily. It is very stable when assembled. A few stoves fold instead of take-apart and that seems like a good feature but the few seconds it takes to put this together are not a problem for me. A small stove like this takes constant attention to keep it fueled because of the small fuel area but it is easy to keep a good flame going. When left to die out it burns completely to a fine ash. The stove is made of good quality stainless – I burned it hot and long as a test and it did not warp and still assembles and takes apart easily.EDIT: After a bit of experience with the stove I found that by doing a ‘top-down’ burn by filling the firebox completely, larger sticks on the bottom and twigs on top, I only had to fill the stove box one time. One loading manages to boil 4 cups of water with still some burn time left. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply Leave a comment Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
