I'd recommend FREE - get out the hole punch, feed a cat, poke some holes, try it out.

Good answer! Lori, alcohol dumped on a sheet of tinfoil will cook a meal just fine. grin My "Altoids Stove" in 'make your own gear' is really just a burner....works fine. All alky stoves have their attributes and making them is part of the fun. Lay an esbit tab on top of one and now you have a hybrid. Saturate a little cone of dirt with it, light it, and now you have a 'super ultralite' alky stove. No need to buy one.
