Hi!<br><br>Some time ago I've (re)invented a stove that is very similar to your stove (and to the peyo revolution...); it only have one thing I don't like: if I let it burn WITHOUT the pot over it (in real life it can happen), the top of the stove melts...<br><br>Have you ever had this problem with your stove?<br>
Never had one melt. Are you using Denatured Alcohol for fuel? I've heard other fuels burn too hot and will melt the aluminum.
Thank for the answer!<br><br>Yes, I'm using denaturated alcohol (90% ethilic alcohol).<br><br>But please confirm: have you ever tried letting the stove burn all the alcohol (in my tests, about 20ml) WITHOUT THE POT over? (it usually makes no sense, but it is a good test for the durability of a stove...)<br><br>With the pot over, my stove has no problem...<br>
can you use a soup can?<br />
No soup cans. Soda/beer cans. Soup cans would be too thick.<br />
