The icestorm-prep thread led me to think about a mini-stove for home use in a power outage. We have all electric home; large BBQ grill w 20# canisters; Mr Buddy propane heater. Any suggestions? Use We imagine these uses for the two of us, for one to several days: -heating water for coffee, hydrating freeze dried foods and warming them, and warming canned foods, perhaps pulling homemade items from freezer for warming, but not actually "cooking" in the traditional sense. Size We thought about Coleman single burner stove, but wonder about something more compact than that, but not as compact as backpacking size & weight. Ran across this for $80 US: Multi-Fuel Survival Stove. "...up to 20,000 BTU/hr of sheer heat and can support a load of 50 lb! Two AA alkaline batteries (not included) power a small fan that constantly stokes the flame, resulting in compact fires that produce an enormous amount of heat. Aluminum base with fold-down stainless steel thermal shield Four support rods pivot to accommodate different pot sizes Instructions included 4-1/2"H when open, folds down to 8-1/2"L x 2"H"
