The Hiknakd alcohol stove was one of the top four performing stoves in our review suite. The Hiknakd alcohol stove is well designed, meticulously crafted, and lightweight. The Hiknakd alcohol stove comes as a cooking system consisting of alcohol burner, pot stand, windscreen, simmer ring, snuffer, and fuel bottle. Its windscreen is adjustable to accommodate cook pots up to 2 liters, and the alcohol burner has enough capacity to cook for two people. The The Hiknakd alcohol stove cooked simple and more complex meals as conveniently as a canister stove. I found the The Hiknakd alcohol stove to be a capable stove ideal for ultralight backpacking, however it should be carried inside a cookpot to avoid damaging it inside a backpack.
