Customer reviewsMakes a great cup of java but not multi-stove compatible
Making coffee in the morning at camp is a ritual for me. I use a larger percolator pot when camping with the wife, but when solo I want less bulk and volume. This little maker fits the bill. It makes a tasty brew and holds exactly 8oz of water - beverage output is slightly less than that. It works as advertised as a stove maker combo using the tablets...however, if you plan to use this with multiple stoves like I did, you will have some issues - the only reason for me not giving 5 stars. The maker s base is a multi-tiered ring 2 dia flat bottom that is usually too small to securely fit most canister and even alcohol stoves by itself. This is not important if you plan to only use the provided tablet stove. I simply fabricated an adapter plate using a 3 x3 piece of .050 aluminum with the corners removed and a 2.25 dia hole in the middle to interface with the second tiered circle of the maker s base. This made it fit my alcohol stove nicely and works packs easily with my stove. Canister stoves will require a mesh or grid over their supports to keep the maker s bottom far enough away from the flame head..and will still be wobbly . Both issues are easily overcome if you want the flexibility, and the output is good enough for the extra work involved. I had no fit or quality issues with the unit I have and found the SS construction to be durable. Good little solo maker and works as advertised with supplied stove.
