I cranked out a knock-off last night out of aluminum flashing and plan to do some beta testing while I wait for the real McCoy to come in the mail.
I get a great bake of a full muffin at 31 minutes and no complaints what so ever with this uber light stove using 1 esbit tab. Am raising it as I had it about 1.25 inches from bottom of pot and that is the key,,getting it closer to the pot to slow the burn down. I made a simple ring of titanium to rest the burner platform that came with the Epicurium Stove and keep making it taller so that it meets the bottom of the pot, as I have the pot resting in a 2 piece caldera cone that I made also and don't want to mess with the caldera cone as it all fits in my 12cm pot. Will keep using trial and error method on making raising the stove platform till I get it where I want it, but it works great. What I really like about the Epicurium Stove is flipping it over and going full burn to boil water also by doing away with my ring that the stove/platform will sit on. I get a great boil at about 6 or so minutes with 1 tab as well for 3 cups of water for coffee and dehydrated meals I make. Uber light weight for the entire setup and no alky to mess with.
