The principle of the stove is very simple. The fuel is poured into the alcohol burner, lit, put the pot on and you're done. The compact design includes an effective wind shield and usually a complete cooking set with various cookware and utensils is also included. Thanks to the stable stand, it's easy to find a good place to cook.
