It had been to long since I toyed with Esbit, I spent a couple hours yesterday running tests. Partly as I am seeing how light my pack can be this coming weekend, one are I am working on going minimalist is my kitchen.
HPS stove with a square of Esbit fuel:
Using our Primus tea kettle on top. Truthfully this stove works better with a narrower pot, but still, it does fine with a wider pot – just keep it to 2 cups water.
With windscreen around:
I had issues with the first windscreen I found after rummaging through my bins, it was one for an alchy stove. After getting frustrated I went into the shop and liberated a new Trail Designs 4″Vari-Vent windscreen from the packing area. That windscreen worked perfectly in later testings.
We will see how everything works this weekend. I only need to heat water for two of my meals – so a good testing trip.
