I don't want to hijack the thread, but I'm looking for people's experiences to determine which twig stove (savotta, bushcraft essentials, honeystove etc) and large bush pot (1.75l pathfinder, 1.1l toaks ti etc) I should buy. Any one using some of these products?

You can see from the photo I posted I'm using the larger lixada stove and a 14cm zebra billy (2L), I've found they work a treat and make meals big enough for 2. given the size of it it does consume quite a few twigs as it goes but per litre of food cooked it's not too bad.

I have made an addition to the Lixada which is an aluminium shelf to put about 1.5 inches down from the top of the stove to allow a trangia to go in, here's the link for pictures. https://bushcraftuk.com/community/threads/lixada-and-trangia.155377/

I will caution you though, any of the stoves you have to assemble like the lixada or the bushcraft stove can be very awkward if it's cold, a "Fixed" one is ideal in the cold, I've found the swiss volcano stove to be great in colder weathers and I can hang it off the ground by the bail.

I think you should get the 1,75 litres Pathfinder Bush Pot and use it under tripods, made of branches that you did find in place, over a little fire that you ignited on sand or stone.

You can make a light cooking chain with open hook in the end or use instead of it a thin stainless steel cord from the boat (or bicycle) shop with open hook. Your hot pot you get back from the hook by using a stick.

To hold the butterfly handles afterwards you use a several times folded cotton handkerchief or a thick leather glove.

If the ground is soft enough you also can just hit with another stick or stone a fork shaped branch into it and hang the pot into the fork over the fire.


And you can think about an additional little gas or meth stove for cases that you can't ignite a wood fire for security reasons or for use in civilised surroundings.

If you want to know why, I think you should open your own thread about it.

This is currently the lightest gas stove at the world market that works without issues, it's sold under other brands too.


Never use this stove with Optimus screw ventile gas cartridges. They look as if they would fit, but they don't! All others fit well.

That's a similar constructed mug that nests well under usual Nalgene Everyday 1 litre bottles.

Lixada 750 ml steel mug with bail and butterfly handles.

Have used several, including homemade, but my go to system is now the very versatile "FireTrough" from Richard Outdoors......

For real coffee,speedster stoves do a small strainer type thing,only a fiver i think,and when i'm using a trangia triangle i turn it upside down,the cut down tent pegs feel a lot safer in the holes.

A few from the phone.
Usually a lighter weight backpacker or camper so use a gas or meths stove. If I go out in the canoe I’ll always take a firebox of some sort. The drop scones are a family favourite and cooking on a fire or using the honey stove is great fun.

Hi de hi campers, I love a bit of camp cookware so here's my contribution
IMG_20210101_135200_556.jpg

Bushbox LF by Bushcraft Essentials with the Pocket Fire Anchor that's made by TJM Metalworks and TBS Cup. This is one of my favourite compact cooksets for the mo.


The Honey stove with Hive expansion kit, this is a great fire pit for solo overnighters.


Pathfinder Bushpot hanging over the fire on a Fire Anchor made by TJM Metalworks. This is cooking up a nice fish curry.

IMG_20191215_115149_973.jpg

Another Honey Stove snap! I like using this one.

DSC03219.JPG

The trusty cast iron skillet coming out to play, cooking up some bannock, bangers and beans!


And last but not least - the Trangia Triangle and Stanley Adventure cockpot.

Collectively these snaps show off my three most used stoves - Honey Stove, Bushbox LF and Trangia Triangle.
