An easy to follow “how-to” video showing how to make a cool alcohol stove out of an AXE Body Spray can. It has a built in priming tray and achieves full bloom very quickly! Sturdy and lightweight, this little stove is ideal for the “do it yourself” backpacker, hiker, or prepper who looks for durability, compactness, and light weight in their cooking system. Weighing in at .7 ounces, this stove may not be the lightest out there, but at under an ounce it’s weight to durability ratio is excellent. It also makes a perfect companion to the homemade aluminum can pots that many of us find appealing, such as the good old Heine pot and the Foster’s pots. It doesn’t boast the fastest boiling time out of the many alcohol stoves out there, but it is incredibly efficient and burns for almost 20 minutes using 1 ounce of fuel.
