The Honey Stove - Stainless Steel


Weight: 314 g         57 reviews
The Honey Stove has fast become the most popular wood burning camping stove in the UK, Since its launch in 2008. Rather than just sitting back and relaxing though, the Honey Stove team have continued to test and refine their original model, releasing the latest version in 2012, which Woodlore now have in stock. This latest version benefits from a slimmed-down and lighter Trangia plate, the inclusion of a square base plate, all topped off with a food grade 6 x 6 inch stainless steel cooking grill. Same weight, better product.

With so many pots, pans and stoves being produced around the world, the end user is often left frustrated at having to buy a certain cooker to work with a certain stove which is fired by a certain fuel… The Honey Stove has been designed to act as a link between them all and is designed and manufactured right here in the UK.

The Honey Stove allows you to use the cooking pot and fuel of your choice, while giving you the additional option of a simple wood-burning stove, thus making it flexible enough to match the time of year and the activity you are undertaking.

Though it works primarily as a wood-burning stove, it is flexible enough to work with other cooking fuels, such as esbit/hexamine tablets, night light candles, any make of meths stove, Greenheat Fuel Cells and even the Trangia gas burner.

Any pot can be used with this stove, whether circular, like our Zebra Billy Cans, rectangular or even kidney-shaped, like the popular Crusader Cup. You also have the option to cook directly on the grills, making bannock, toast, croissants, grilled meat/fish, sausages and bacon a one-cooking system process.

The stove system can be completely disassembled and packed flat, making it easy to store in your rucksack. It will also fit flat inside the traditional military-style mess tin.

The stove pack consists of 9 pieces, made up of side panels, a fire door, a base grill, a mid grill and a top grill. There are a number of different ways to configure the setup of the stove, and you do not need to use all of the parts all of the time! Just select the multi-grill arrangement that best suits your chosen cooking method.

The Honey Stove works best with small pieces of dried wood no thicker than a pencil; two fistfuls of these twigs will boil 500 ml of water in around 8-10 minutes. This is an impressive statistic, one that Ray put to the test and was very pleased to see ring true.

  really like this stove for it's compactness. Also very versatile with my different setups. Swedish torch fire works very well. Would like to see this with some sort of hinge assembly while still allowing compact design, would be slightly easier to assemble and more secure fitting. Still using separate panels. All and all, I love it.

  Great for wee cups of tea or in combination with a frying pan. Use sticks or Esbit Alcohol Burner. Recommended. Still going strong after 5 years.

  A nice stove ideal for backpacking as it packs away small into it's own carry pouch. The metal plates fit together very easily into a small square or bigger hexagonal configuration. I've only tried out the square configuration so far and it's a nice tidy set up, ideal for use with a spirit burner or miniature wood fire . One of the zebra cooking pots sits nicely on top and the steel walls channel the heat up for a quick boil. What I love about this stove is it keeps the cooking fire contained in a small space reducing the environmental impact ,I've seen too many cooking fires leave a big footprint on the ground. The honey stove keeps everything nice and compact. When finished it disassembles quickly and easily with no fuss and I can leave the ground clean as if I had never been there. A must have piece of kit.
