I was thrilled to be asked to review this product for a review as I always feel all families should have back up products in their home because a product like this could come in very handy. I asked my husband to help me with this review so I didn't mess up anything. He was happy to . We followed the directions that are shown in the leaflet that is sent with the product. We own lots of woods so my husband wanted to try it with wood. He followed the directions carefully and in a short amount of time we were ready for cooking. I tried some hot dogs and it went really well, I was impressed, as was my husband. It isn't real big but you can put a pot or pan on depending what they are made on, just use wisdom. I think the price is reasonable for what you received. Remember it is better to be safe than sorry and being prepared if your stove or other things do not work is a great feeling. I recommend this product and hope others will see how important it is to have a product like this. Very well made and works great.
Great little stove. Packs away very neatly and good storage bag.
This stove is likely the best investment in outdoor gear I've made! There were some reviews warning that it takes a bit for gasification to start, and while it may be true, if you build the fire properly in the can, it starts gasification in about 30 seconds after lighting. It's really neat to see a jet pattern coming from your stove.
I had water boiling (~1qt) in a couple of minutes. It's no jet boil, but I was feeding it with paper and pinecones.
Now, about fuel: Paper really clogged the system up, and I had to tap the ash out several times. It's way too dense, and ash piles high, fast. Pinecones == Good. Properly processed sticks == Good. Dry grass != good.
It's stainless, I think. Parts are somewhat thin, so don't bang it around on stuff, it'll deform. It'll stand up to some abuse, but just don't go crazy.
Compacts down really nicely, considering it's size, and the mesh bag will likely even keep soot buildup from getting all over everything. I'll likely be ordering another one as a spare.
A great little stove. We are entering the mini camping sport with a " tear drop clone" style camper and space is the key. This is just the thing to have! Compact ,easy to store, well engineered, and quality built! And easy for accessible fuel sources !
This review is currently just from inspection.
All of the parts are well made and are smooth. They match up with the respective parts perfectly. The metal is pretty strong even though it seems thin. Most of the edges are rolled so there aren't any burrs or sharp edges except the inner part where the wood is burnt and a little around the triangle rack rim. Not an issue.
The design is great since they fit within each other for storage.
The bag itself is nice and thick. Not a thin dollar store laundry mesh quality.
I'll look for a sturdier solid case for it.
I only bought this because by chance it was 1/3 the cost I'll test it out in the morning but I'm thinking about getting another one because of its current low cost. Wish I got it free lol I've seen other wood burning products but I couldn't imagine paying full price. I also have a few of the sterno emergency stove that folds from WallyWorld.
If you're an outdoors kind of person be it hiker, camper, or for survival you need one even if just for fun.
I've have used this several times since I got it using wood chunks and it works great. But now I'm using wood pellets and it got even better.
The wood pellets burn cleaner and produce no visible smoke. There is no campfire smell like when you use wood chunks or twigs etc. and it's easier to add fuel using the pellets. When you add twigs or wood chunks you have to wait for it to burn hot. As with the pellets you can add while there is fire. Or when all you see is the embers just add a handful and that alone will get this stove running hot.
Try using wood pellets in this stove.
!!!! Use wood pellets made for a a fireplace, stove, or firepit. These are made to create no smoke. Do not use BBQ grilling wood pellets that adds flavor to the meat. And you will notice the price is cheaper for wood pellets meant for fireplaces, stoves, fire pits. It's about $3-$6 for 40lbs of fuel pellets vs $10-$20 for 40lbs of BBQ'n pellets.
It is very lightweight and compact and does not take a lot of space in your backpack. I'm very pleased with my purchase. :)
I received the Ohuhu camp stove quickly and it is prefect for camping without using expensive propane. Love the idea of using branches for the fuel. Only problem was a defect in one of the little adjusting arms on the top piece; as it was loose and wouldn't hold or stay put. Ohuhu, emailed me and asked me about my experience and I told them about the arm not working and they asked me to take picture of it, which I did and attached it to show them the problem. They shipped out another one to me, which arrived quickly and just in time for my camping trip! Thank you Ohuhu, they are a good and reputable company that stands behind their products.
Works great. Beautifully designed
This is a very handy little stove that is ideal for camping. You don't even need to carry fuel, just set it up, add kindle and little twigs, start a fire inside, and you can boil water, cook eggs, roast marshmallows. If you do want fuel, there's a receptacle for alcohol, so you can generate heat by burning that.
It comes with a handy mesh carrier, and it all collapses so that it's compact when you're carrying it, but it's very easy to set up so that it's ready to go. This is a great design for a very handy device. I really like it. (Sample provided for review.)
Loved it worked great.
