The Esbit Pocket Stove is favoured the world over for its exceptionally small pack-size and is a god-send for those who want cooking equipment that doesn't weigh them down. At just 82 g, the 'Small' sized Pocket Stove is one of the lightest camping stoves around. When used with Esbit's solid fuel tablets, you have a pocket-sized cooking set with a strong heat output.

The stove's cooking grade is selectable in two steps, making it suitable for cooking with cups, pots and pans. One 14 g solid fuel tablet is capable of heating half a litre of water in approximately 7 minutes.

The success story of the Esbit brand began in 1936, when the first solid fuel tablets were invented by Erich Schumm. Soon after, further products were launched, including the Pocket Stove, of which more than 10 million pieces have been sold so far.

Esbit products have proved themselves even under the most extreme weather conditions as a source of energy that takes up a minimum of space. Esbit has gained particular importance for the emergency ration supply in cases of electricity and gas outages and natural catastrophes. It has become indispensable in soldiers' field equipment and as a component of ration packs for armed forces and non-governmental organizations across the world. In addition, Esbit is also successfully used in a variety of outdoor and leisure activities like camping, hiking and mountain climbing.

  Perfect pocket size stove. So small, yet lightweight for a short trip or hike. Fits in the palm of your hand. Excellent.

  It's different from what they sold in my country. This is high quality, solid and more durable. This is built to last. I have no regrets purchasing this item.

  I bought this stove for some weekend camping trips as I wanted to travel light. The first thing that struck me was the quality, it's sturdy and the metal doesn't feel as flimsy as some other solid fuel stoves out there. This is the small version which roughly fits in the palm of your hand (if anyone is thinking about size). However, it still cooks a boil in the bag despite it's size. Slower than a gas cooker though. Still, it is a nice piece of equipment. Can I mention a well done to the staff at Ray Mears shop? I put my order in before midday and my goods were delivered the next! Beat that Amazon! :-)

  Well made, easy operation, light and good price. But the online shop should stock extra packs of esbit fuel tablets as well for ease of purchase. When used with my MSR cup/kettle it only just fits onto the prongs when fully opened, but overall very good.

  Just received my Esbit Pocket Stove - small and used it for a trip last weekend. It is more expensive than competing hexamine stoves but is smaller and constructed to a higher standard. This is no 'one shot' pressed steel stove from a ration pack but a pocketable lightweight cooker that will take plenty of use and, I predict will last me years. Great for a brew when on the move or an emergency backup.
