Note from Kim: This camp stove requires just a little bit of fuel. (It will burn anything that will burn and can be made small enough to fit inside the stove.) It is great for roasting hot dogs or marshmallows. Plus, while it is working, it will charge your device via USB. With the right pan or pot, you can boil water and cook. Or, set it beside you to keep warm.
