I tried one of these in a hobo stove. That way the meths can burn from the jets as well as the central reservoir. Blimey it went off like a jet engine. Works well but be careful if you have long hair. Good for getting rid of split ends though.

I am thoroughly impressed with that piece of kit and knowing you and your review process, I'm quite happy to buy one on your recommendation. Cheers again for providing such comprehensive reviews of useful kit.

@eagerbeaver - I'm glad you like it bud! :) I love my white box stove - It's ideal for brewing-up really quick, some power in it!

I had to buy one of these after seeing the review. It boils a large mug of water in less than half the time of my Trangia and seems to use less fuel doing it. Not sure how it manages that but it does. Thanks Ash for the review.

Another great review there Ash.
I love my honey stove and I also have a white box as well as a trangia burner, still loooking at which set up I want to use the most, with your review I will revisit my last decision and look at it again
