White Box Stove

Just wanted to let everyone know I ordered a White Box Stove to test out. My original plan for my up coming PCT thuhike was to take a home made Super Cat. I ordered the White Box Stove as I read it holds 3oz of fuel compared to the 1.2oz you can fit in a Super Cat. As it will be Sarah and I hiking the PCT together with a single stove, we will need to boil 4 cups of water for dinner and if we would like a hot drink with dinner 6 cups.

I just tested this stove out with about 5 cups of water in a 1.3L Evernew ti pot. I filled the stove with 2 oz of fuel and it boiled 5 cups with ease. there was easily 1/2 oz left in the stove when my pot was at a roaring boil.  This stove burns hot and is very efficient. So if you plan on hiking with a partner the hole way this would be a great 2 person stove. I am going to do some more testing but I love it so far. One of the things I like about it just like the Super Cat is that you do not need a pot stand as you can set your pot right on top of the stove. One less thing to carry and worry about loosing. One thing to keep in mind as the White Box stove is a side burner you should use a large diameter pot with the stove.
