Go ahead and say it. Go on, they want you to. I'm sure it's why it got its name in the first place. That is a Hot. Ash. Stove.

The Hot Ash is a 3-pound wood-burning rocket stove whose stainless steel composition armors it for use on nearly any outdoor terrain, and whose primary and secondary burn chambers enable it to cook and boil water quickly using only sticks and twigs. In addition, the chambers create continuous turbulence to recycle establish flames, so your wood fuel burns for longer, with more heat and less smoke. The Hot Ash design also filters out harmful creosotes found in traditional campfires before they make their way to your wieners and s'mores.

The little bushcraft buddy has assembled dimensions of 3" wide x 7.25" deep x 8.9" tall, and nested dimensions of 3" wide x 3.25" deep x 8.9" tall. Small enough to pack for a trip into the yonder, but large enough to cook a meal for the 2 to 4 people on it. And strong like ox too--Hot Ash notes that their engineer once performed a very scientific test of its durability by standing on a 12" skillet placed over the top of the stove. It held up.

Hot Ash heat output is strong enough to cover a surface area of up to 12" in diameter. As a point of reference for water boil time, the Hot Ash crew added a pot with 4 cups of water to the stove in 45-degree weather, and achieved the roll in about 10 minutes.

If you're not into cooking with the forest floor, the Hot Ash Stove will also burn store-bought fuel tablets, but purchased wood pellets.
