Just excellent overall.I use this as a part of a cooking system with a Trangia burner. The Trangia fits inside the Emberlit stove, and you can adjust the height of the Trangia burner inside the Emberlit by placing it on top of the crossbars, or on top of its own lid. First the review of the Emberlit:
Construction: - solid, very light, titanium sheet metal looks to be very sturdy - able to support a 3L-pot full of water
Design: - unlike other twig stoves, it does not have holes in the bottom. The Vargo titanium stove (and other stoves) have holes on the bottom plate. As a result, the ashes fall through and burn the base. The Emberlit stove has a solid bottom plate, so the ashes do not fall through. There is still some accidental ashes that may fall on the base, but it does not consistently mess up the base. - feeding hole is just perfect size - once assembled, it's very sturdy
Efficiency: - very efficient, with excellent heat output - able to boil a litre of water in approx 5-6 min, able to boil 2.5L in approx 10-15 min
Use with Trangia burner: - I use Emberlit Titanium twig stove as a Trangia wind screen. I think it gives several significant advantages: 1) Weight is reasonable at 150g 2) Excellent twig stove when conditions are good, giving amazing heat output and saving fuel. I use the twig stove to boil water and for frying (when I can stir the ingredients). I do not use it for baking or for frying things that can't be stirred. This saves a great deal of fuel. 3) Excellent as a Trangia windscreen. If fireban or for baking. The height of the Trangia burner can be adjusted by using the crossbars on the bottom plate instead of the top, or titanium stakes in the air intake holes (the crossbars on top of the stakes). 4) Overall, the weight savings are substantial as the need for fuel is minimized. My preferred fuel bottle is a 500mL collapsible plastic bottle that weighs 27g. I will use about 30mL for each baking meal, so 500 mL will last 20 days. I've tried to minimize the weight by making a Coke-can burner (20g), but went back to the Trangia as the simmer function is really awesome, as is the ability to extinguish the stove (minimizing fuel waste).
