Zelph recently had a Fathers Day Sale in which 2 of these Venom Super Stove sets were on sale for a measly $18 (and that included shipping). So, as any stove nut would do, I jumped on the sale and got 2 of these for my very own! At that price, I couldn’t afford not too…
So, how about the stoves? Here are some specs straight from his site:
This stove is made from an aluminum energy drink bottle. It’s a 1 piece stove, no pot stand needed.
When 1/2 ounce of fuel is used this stove has the ability to absorb and hold the fuel as a safety feature. If the stove is accidentally tipped over the fuel will not spill out.(Just like the StarLyte)
This stove is a compilation of features found in several different stoves that I have made over the years. The StarLyte, Fancee Feest, Cobalt and Cobalt Blue.
Weight – 1.6 ounce
Height – 2.75 inches – 7 centimeters
Diameter – 2.50 inches –
Fuel capacity – 1 ounce – 30ml
Will boil 2 cups of water under optimum conditions using 1/2 ounce of denatured alcohol and a 2.5 cup aluminum pot.
Material – Heavy duty aluminum beverage bottle
Recommended fuels – HEET in yellow bottle, Denatured Alcohol, “Meths” (outside the U.S.A.)
So, now you may be asking yourself why did I need 2? Well, the sale included 2 so it was kind of out of my control, however, I was not complaining! Actually, the fact that the sale included 2 set-ups was part of the reason I bought them to begin with. This way, I could keep one for myself and give the other away to my fine readers! (As if I needed to tell you that after reading the title of this post… 🙂 )
So, as a way of saying thank you to all of my readers, I am officially having my first give away on my blog. It includes the Venom Super Stove itself, a 4 oz clear fuel bottle with a flip-top lid and a measuring cup. (Of course the page with general info that came with the stove is included too.) I will cover shipping to the winner, so there is no cost to anyone. This is 100% free to enter to win, as well as to win. (Although, I must say that I assume no responsibility as far as use of the stove by the owner. The winner uses the stove with his/her own responsibility.)
So, what are the rules? Well, I will tell ya. Just post a comment at the bottom of this post (not by email or any other such method; Facebook, Twitter, etc… will not count) and answer 2 questions. (You must answer the 2 questions to be eligible, and of course only one entry per person please.) So, here are the questions:
- Why would you like to win this stove?
- What cook pot would you use this stove with?
That’s it! I will allow the contest to take place until Sunday, July 10th at 12:00 am (CST). Once all of the entries are posted, I will use Random.org to pick a winner. Once the winner is chosen I will make a new post here on my blog announcing the winner and will then request the winners physical address so I can get this cool new stove on the road to them! Also, I am opening the contest to anyone, anywhere, meaning I will ship outside the US if the winner selected is indeed outside the US. So, until then, please enjoy this video that I did on the stove…
So, good luck to everyone that enters! And as usual, thanks for reading!
