Have You Ever Tried Turning A Soda Can Into One Of These?

Penny Stove


The Boy Scout motto is ‘always be prepared.’ That’s good advice for everyone, not just the scout troops of America. This DIY stove is a great way to do that. It could save your bacon in a pinch. I want to make some of these! They will be great for camping or a survival kit.

This stove takes two soda cans, fiberglass insulation, and heat or a type of denatured alcohol substance. Be sure to wear gloves. It only takes handling fiberglass one time to remember that it makes you all itchy. These will bring water to a boil in just a few minutes and get super hot. Great for cooking! They are very similar to a fondue burner.

There are other DIY camping stove options out there. Like this one from Modern Bushman. It’s larger, using an old coffee can. There is more than one way to skin a cat (what a gross old saying) and there is more than one way to build a camping/survival/mini stove.

Still not a believer? The Soda Can Stove has attacked the rumors, myths, and lies surrounding these little stoves and I think you will be happy with the answers.

Here’s the video… Enjoy!
