THE SUPER CAT ALCOHOL STOVE

There is a very good homemade stove that burns either Alcohol or Heet that can be made out of the 3 ounce Fancy Feast cat food cans.  If you do not have a cat, then the Devil Ham cans are also 3 ounces and will work.  The nice thing about these stoves is that they do not require the use of a pot stand.  What ever you are using to boil your water or cook your meals in, it can be placed right on top of the cat food can.  

I have made several of these stoves out of both aluminum and steel cans.  There are pro's and con's to each type of metal.  It will be worth your while to read all the information that is contained on Jim Wood's website.

The Super Cat Alcohol Stove by Jim Wood

SuperCat Alcohol Stove Template

The video below is a comparison between the Vargo Triad Stove and the SuperCat Stove.  Vargo Triad stoves are around $30 and up, whereas the SuperCat stove is currently 0.54 cents at our local Wal-Mart.  

STOVES AND FUEL

Fuel for stove examples:  I have been experimenting with various fuels for my stove. This includes 91% rubbing alcohol, 99% rubbing alcohol and 63% gelled alcohol the type that you would find in hand sanitizer bottles.

So far the gelled alcohol has burned the longest.  The stove that I used during this test was nothing else up the metal bottom to a tea candle.  That little holder will hold 15cc of fluid.  If you burn 91% alcohol, you will have a flame for 16 minutes.  If you burn 63% gelled alcohol, you will have a flame for 24 minutes.

I also have 3 stoves that are made out of coke cans. One of those is what is call a top jet alcohol stove and the other two are what are called side jet alcohol stoves. Don't get me wrong.  These are nice stoves, but they do not burn rubbing or gelled alcohol as long as the tea candle holder does.

I have tried burning another type of alcohol and that is HEET, you know the stuff in the yellow bottle you would find in the automotive department.  This is an entirely different type of alcohol and it will give you a hotter flame and it will not leave soot in you pots and pans when you cook with it, and the results are I love using HEET. The Rubbing Alcohol will do the trick, but it does leave soot coating the pot or pan. I need to get some Denatured Alcohol and try that.  Denatured Alcohol will not leave soot on your pots and pans.

As far as containers for carrying the rubbing alcohol.  All I use are those 20oz Lifewater bottles.  For carrying the gelled alcohol, just go over to the trial size hygiene asile and look for the squeeze top container that carries 3oz of fluids for around .97 cents and that will work just fine.

To save space on items, you can use Dr. Bronners in place of Soap, Shampoo, Toothpaste, Shaving, Deodorant, and even for washing your dishes and your clothes. Dr. Bronners is all natural and it is very safe for the environment.  I have been using Dr. Bronners since I hiked a 150 mile stretch of the A.T. up here in Maine back when I was 14.
