"I received 3 of these, they are not exactly as pictured. The solid fuel tab is white, and has the texture of a deer salt lick. They burn for quite a while, at a decent heat. They burn smokeless, and when blown out have no smoke either. You can relight them instantly.The actual stove may show some weird white/off white/green corrosion, due to the heating tab. it can be scraped off easily.Overall, great product like CTD always does."

"I've used these Estbit stoves since being stationed in Germany in the'70's. I carry one everywhere I deploy, including the last trip to Iraq in 08. That stove kept me warm, heated my coffee and my shaving water in 4 combat tours and multiple field problems. Every soldier and sportsman should carry one. The CTD price is great."

"Very handy item to have in your day pack. It folds small enough to even fit in your pocket. I will be using it when I'm hiking in the Adirondack mountains to heat water for coffee, hot chocolate, soup, etc."

"These little stoves are great. They are very small. It boils a cup of water in about 4 to 5 minutes. The tablet last about 10 minutes, so if you're fast you may can boil two cups. I have two in my camping backpack getting ready to buy two more, you cant have too many of these stoves."

"They are indeed \"Grade II\" but who cares. They are excellent little stoves, I was amazed at how hot and clean they burn. Had water boiling in about 3 minutes. I've heard complaints about odor, but it is really mild, just store in a ziploc bag.I highly recommend for your BOB."

"I have one of these for my B.O.B. and it works beautifully, easy to light, and packs up very small, will burn long enough to boil a small pot of water."

"I ordered this stove a little while ago, and have already used it on several backpacking trips. This is a great backup for larger stoves or a light weight alternative. It works perfect for preparing dehydrated meals, or for boiling several cups of water. Though I wouldn't use it for much more than that. This would also be a great addition to a compact survival kit. It's definitely grade 2 condition, but it still looks fine and works great. Comes with several fuel tablets. Great buy for a great price."

"The stove I got is scratched up like it's been around for a while, yet it has obviously never been used. Better than grade II as far as I'm concerned. I haven't used this stove yet, I'm going to test it out and probably use as a backup when hiking/camping."

"I just used this little stove to find it had big potential. I boiled 8 oz. of water in 2 min. The fuel kept going for a total of 10 min. I'd stay away from wetfire if you use this to cook, as it does not burn as long or as hot as the Esbit fuel does. This is perfect for backpacking or roadtrips."

"I bought one half a year ago, and another one just arrived today. First one was absolutely brand spanking new. This recent one was heavily used. A lot of soot, and melted esbit burnt into it. At first, I was a little disappointed, as I was expecting what I got the first time. But then I thought about it and decided that at this price, this is still an awesome deal. Most vendors will sell you Esbit tabs at this price. At CTD you get a stove too. And those who use this type of stove, know that a little soot will not hurt this stove. This stove lasts forever. Even if you have a nice gas powered stove, you should always have it as a backup. It's small, and fits it in your shirt pocket. Fuel fits inside the stove. Everyone who is into emergency prep, camping, hunting, hiking, must have one of this. Did I say one?! I meant one in each bag or pack. I will be ordering more!"

"I bought one of these when CTD was sold out of volcano stoves and I must say I like it more than the volcano stove I got off of eBay, Its small light and doesn\uFFFDt make any noise in your pack, I had a power outage for 3 days a few months ago and I cooked breakfast, lunch and dinner on this and I was feeding 2 people myself and my girlfriend, we had some steaks in the freezer so we ate that first one tablet cut in half burned like a torch long enough to cook a 10 maybe 12 oz steak. Granted it wasn\uFFFDt easy pan frying a steak on a stove the size of a wallet but not once did the pan fall off and there was no funny taste because of the fuel, we pretty much ate canned stew and stuff like that for the rest of power outage except I cooked eggs and hash browns every morning for breakfast, the fuel tabs come in 2 packs that fit in the stove and I still had half a pack after 9 meals and making coffee and heating water for a sink shower. I did use a little bit of wood just to get a fire going that filled the stove but it was just little chunks of tinder I had a dried 12\" tall maybe 12\" diameter log and only used half of it. what a great efficient little stove, For camping, hunting or anything else you can think of this little pocket stove packs a punch way outside its weight class."

"I bought some for stocking stuffers and one for myself. 3 out of 4 where brand new, one was well used, but perfectly functional. I used to live off of one of these when I was in the military. The design is genius and at this price it is a steal."

"Fits in MOLLE-012 side pouch along with matches, drink mixes, bullion cubes. Throw in the Swiss volcano stove & you've got a great kit."

"I have used every type of camping stove imaginable. This is the perfect backup stove for when you run out of fuel for your normal large camping stove. Also great for backpacking when weight is an issue, all that liquid fuel is heavy!"

"I bought one of these and a Swedish canteen set. Both seem really nice, the stove looked like it had been used once to try it out. Me and my wife have a hiking trip coming up and this will sure come in handy. It took only 18 hrs to get to me from the time I ordered it."

"I bought one of these at the local Academy sports to try while camping. It's light weight and sturdy. I bought a second one for my wifes B.O.B. from CTD so that I could write a review. Works great with the fuel tabs as well as the Wetfire tabs from Ultimate Survival."

"I ordered 2 of these, and as usual the shipping from CTD was amazing. The two that I got were definitely used, but in very good shape. A little cleaning, and they are as good as new. The fuel that came with them says to break them into 3rds, so each one will be good for more than one use. Haven't use them yet, but plan to use one as a back up stove for back packing, and the other for an emergency kit. Another great product from CTD."

"This little stove is fantastic. I got mine with obvois signs of wear, but its a stove -blackened metal is on par, and all that fuel that comes with it is fantastic easy to use easy to clean when its still warm the only points of failure will be the pop rivots so get quality steel replacements . I'd buy the stove anyway the uses for this stove are endless, its light ,strong and slightly larger than a pack of cigarettes."

"The stove itself is pretty nifty. Folds up and looks like one of those old Hi-8 video tapes they had before the newer ones. Should note the hexamine fuel tablets shown with the stove did not come with my order.Obvious old surplus. However, it's sealed, so it should ideally work. The directions for the tab use are on the foil, and it seems that it would work just as well. Good investment!"

"The Esbit stove is a super light and compact stove. It comes with a box of solid fuel, there are a total of 6 3/4\"x 1\" blocks that come in 2 strips, one quarter cube is enought to boil one cup of water as long as there isnt alot of wind. The stove is adjustable to fit different cups. Its also nice to use as a tinder platform if the ground is wet. My only complaint would be the fact that if you choose to use wood for fuel you must really break the sticks down, and constantly feed the fire, its hardly a big deal but it is something I noticed as an inconvienience. Great stove for a great price, I have a modgear deployment bag that I use for a mini bug out survival bag it holds alot of gear and the Esbit is part of that kit, the quality is high enough to depend on and its cheap enough to buy a few"

"Two is one and one is none. At this price get a few and get some of the extra hexamine fuel tablets."

"Perfect to fit in pocket or bag , I bought a similar one at the army navy and it was twice as much and half as durable , can't beat the price or pack ability."

"Got to try out this little stove during the recent Pacific northwest snow storm...Power was out for 30+ hours so I thought this would be a perfect time to try it out. Tablets are easy to light with a simple lighter or matches and gets a good flame going. Burn time is about 7 minutes. Cooked some beans & franks for breakfast one morning, took maybe 5 mins. If boiling water or making ramen noodles, find a way to elevate the fuel tablet closer to your pot or you'll being using 2 or 3 of them. Packaging was all in German so don't bother with instructions but it's pretty straight forward. Small enough to store in a ziploc bag in the front pouch on my survial bag. WELL worth the money."
