How Does an Alcohol Burner Work?

An alcohol burner (spirit burner) uses alcohol as a fuel source. The Pathfinder stainless steel alcohol stove holds approximately 4.5 ounces of fuel and can burn for over half an hour. 

If you’ve never tried an alcohol burner, you’re in for a treat. Developed by legendary Alpine mountaineer Francis Fox Tuckett in the 1850s, the early stoves were designed to hang from a cord in your tent. They had a simple construction — a metal base with an opening for adding fuel and a top for extinguishing the flame. 

The modern spirit burners are just as simple as their predecessors but more durable and easier to use. Light your fuel, add a stabilizer like the Pathfinder Stove Stand Multi-Tool, put your pot on top, and start cooking.

Alcohol Burner Work

Because you can light the fuel in the wind, snow, or even rainy weather, they’re convenient cooking stoves for hikers, backpackers, and campers.

But that doesn’t mean you must be halfway up a mountainside to brew hot coffee under nature’s canopy. You can carry your alcohol stove in your gear pack and use it anywhere.

How to Use the Pathfinder Alcohol Stove

To cook with an alcohol stove burner, you need the stove, fuel, and a fire source, such as a ferro rod or another fire-starting kit. Here’s a quick guide to using your camping alcohol stove burner:

  1. Remove the cap from your stove.

  2. Add at least two ounces of fuel. We recommend you use denatured alcohol because it’s inexpensive and does the job well. 

  3. You might not see the flame right away. Hold your palm a couple of inches above the opening to check that your spirit burner is lit.

  4. Place your stove stand over the flame, followed by your cooking pot. 

  5. Add your water or food and let it cook.

  6. To extinguish the fire, put the top back in place to remove all the oxygen from the burner. 

That’s all you need to know to start cooking with your alcohol stove!

The Best Alcohol Burner for Backpacking and Camping

The Pathfinder Alcohol Stove is lightweight and compact enough to bring anywhere. It also works perfectly with other Pathfinder gear, including the Pathfinder French Press Kit, Stainless Steel Cooking Pot, and the Stove Stand Multi-Tool. And you can use it repeatedly — these solo stove burners are built to last for generations.

Compact and works great

I got turned off to alcohol stoves when I tried to build one out of tuna fish cans, and was disappointed in the result. I decided to give this one a try, and it works great! Nice, even flame, and I use it with the pot support multi-tools. I like that the lid seals shut, so it can be carried with fuel ready to go.

Awesome stove!

I've bought two of these stoves, one for my bottle kit and one for my canteen kit. They work great and are small enough to pack into both kit bags!! I've even used them with the pot holder attachment to cook bacon and eggs in my 8" stainless steel skillet!! The way they are designed to fit underneath cook stands in both the bottle and canteen kits makes using them a breeze!!

Alcohol Stove

Test run 2 times now and it works really good. Boiled water with plenty of fuel left. Very impressed by the quality of it and of b the stand. Definitely prefer the denatured alcohol over white gas. Much cleaner burn.

Love it

I like the stove lots of positives. BIGGEST + is it doesn't leak. Biggest - is how dang hot it gets.
One issue is the snuffer lid, the plate is poorly attached and should have been riveted on for the swivel effect and not punched through and with such miniscule material amounts . This will fall off
