Re: Alcohol stoves in use?
Non-pressure alcohol stoves have a little lower max power output than propane stoves, but most cooking isn't done at max power. So, it will take a little longer to heat a skillet, or boil a pot of water, but once up to temp the alcohol stove puts out plenty of heat. Cast iron skillets, et cetera, are useful with any stove because they provide a fairly evenly heated cooking surface and are great at conducting the heat of the flame and transferring it to the pan contents. I use a Lodge "combo cooker" that essentially uses a skillet as the lit of a small Dutch oven.
It's a very handy little set up.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
