The Brookside Crafts alcohol stove kit, sold exclusively on eBay under the seller name Tomsbus, is a gem of a stove at a fantastic price. For less than $18, you get an efficient soda can-style stove that boils water well, an effective simmer ring for simmering, an integrated windscreen/pot support that can easily handle pots up to 4 inches wide (such as an MSR titanium Kettle), a nicely made stainless steel cup, and a fuel bottle that is shaped to fit inside the cup (along with all the other items). Besides that, the Brookside Crafts alcohol stove is no ordinary pop-can stove - it is reinforced with heavier gauge aluminum on the inside, is beautifully constructed, and is quite durable.
