We had a power outage yesterday, it was only for a few hours but it got me thinking. If it had been longer we wouldn't be able to cook or even boil water because our stove is electric.
So I made this.
It burns alcohol and works well enough to boil cold water in under 10 minutes. I can get 10-12 minutes of burn off 4oz of alcohol. Its pretty nifty. I'm proud of it, its my own design and it only took me 3-4 hours from thinking about making it to testing and tweaking. Its made out of the bottom of an Arizona Icetea can and the bottom of a cherry coke can.
