The video is nice, thanks for finding and posting it!
I heard that I should be able to use the alcohol stove down to below freezing temps. When it gets cold I stick all my cooking gear outside my apartment door and wait for it to hit a prime temperature. After that, I give it a shot to see if I can get it going. So far with my pressurized type of alcohol stove I have had no luck. I think I might need to use an open one like the cat can type of design.
Well, I still picked up one of these. I think it might be nice to have when I go with my GF on a trip. If I need to boil a lot of water this may be quicker.
