It's space age technology if you look at things from a geologic age perspective. I mean what's a few billion years difference? It's a piece of pumice. My cousin's husband does the same thing with the volcanic rocks on his property. Soaks them in kerosene and then lights his stove with them.

My favorite quote from the page


Uses: Types of Fuel...
Campfires
Barbecues
Indoor Fireplaces...

You know though, I wonder how well I simple piece of pumice would work as an alcohol stove, no can, no container just a piece of pumice, might could even work as it's own stand... hmm...

I think I'll do that, as soon as my wife and I get back from Xmas Vacation...

wouldn't that be interesting, set a 'rock' down soak with some alcohol, set a pot on it and light...

hmm... just noticed, the price on their page and the price on their shopping site are two different prices (the shopping site lists 14$)

I used to have a stove that was just a tin ful of perlite - sounds like the fuel-soaked hunk-o-pumice would work the same, but without the tin!

Hmm ... pumice stove ..

Concerns:

- weight? vs vargo,etowah, Ion stoves?

- wasted fuel? - difficult not to lose some from spilage and leakage. The
pumice would have to be in a container, or else waste fuel.

- "joe idiot" and his block of fuel soaked pumice "lights up stove on dry
forest bed. Next days headline reads "Burning rock, devastates 40,000 acres".

Still ... would like to see how some of these issues might be overcome.
Could be cool, and definately a multifunction stove.

I'm not sure there was ever a statement with more potential to be taken completely out of context
