NEWS – Although I’ve never lived in a city and currently live in the middle of the woods, I’ve never gone camping before! Crazy right? If I ever do decide to go camping, I’d seriously consider taking the nCamp multi-fuel stove with me. This little guy looks impressive. First of all, it’s made in the USA of aluminum and stainless steel and is designed to fold down to a 9 x 6.5in footprint for easy transport. But the best thing about it is that you can use multiple fuels with it. Use wood, propane canisters (you’ll need an adapter though), alcohol, composite, and even hexamine tablets. Want one? Then head over to ncampgear.com where it’s $65 or Amazon where it’s only $39.

  2. No, no, no. You can see from the first pic why it would not be a good idea to take this outdoors. My place burned to the ground in the megafire in New Mexico. The last thing we need in any of our overgrown forests is people setting up camp and burning a fire like this. Use a stove burning gas or liquid fuel or stay home. There’s too much at stake.

    1. I hear you, my place was a mile from the final burn line in AZ a few years ago. It’s not campers with the foresight to bring a stove that start these things, though. It’s folks that think they can make a fire circle anywhere and that a few rocks magically keeps the fire in the ring. This stove looks like it keeps things much more in check. Since it’s directing the heat you can cook with a much smaller fire even if you do use wood.

  3. Too bulky for backpacking in my opinion. Similar designs exist with a smaller footprint and in lighter versions (titanium).

    1. Sean, Sir do you have any idea what anything with Titanium costs; I have several tubes for a Titan II ICBM missile which although are only a few feet long they are worth a disproportionate amount of money, and not because they were from the missile but because they are made of titanium.

      For an item such as the author’s :camp stove to be marketed in titanium as opposed to aluminum would result in it being unattainable for 5he everyday working person.

      And for those who can’t manage a few extra ounces of weight due to the aluminum cooking surface, then enlarge a few holes in its surface OR put in a little more exercise to strengthen those leg and back muscles so you can handle the extra weight – and yes I practice what I “preach” – and also wear U. S. ARMY issue ‘desert’ boots when either hiking or riding my dirt bikes for the extra support.

      Not meaning to ‘troll’ here, but there are several ways in which unnecessary weight can be eliminated from this design to lesson the overall weight, such as also incorporating lightening holes in the legs and cooking surface or even doing away with the legs and using rocks to obtain the necessary height to cook your chow.

      1. A quick look on Amazon reveals several compact titanium folding camping stoves for around $50. I’m an avid primitive camper and bulkiness and weight are paramount when backpacking. This thing weighs nearly 2 lbs. Congrats on having several tubes for a Titan II ICBM missile though. Super weird flex.

        Titanium is not CRAZY expensive like you make it sound. Why do you have missile tubes? Thin paneled stove vs missile tubes good comparison. I normal wear my ‘desert’ boots on the toilet for extra support. I’m am a everyday working person just like everyone who works and titanium stoves are not unattainable. You need to find a new titanium tube sales person.

  4. A couple in sawtooth had a similar twig burner when we were backpacking there. We watched them struggling then offered them our reliable propane one. No need to suffer with something like this.

  5. These twig stoves need to be fed constantly … But there does not appear to be an access hole to insert twigs when there is a pot or pan on the top. The simple hobo stoves that are made from a #10 can work pretty well in my opinion and you can feed them twigs without removing the pot. I have had small campfires in a hobo stove all night long (doing security) and the can metal doesn’t seem to deteriorate. It’s a pretty good design as long as you have dry wood.
