I found exactly what I was looking for in the MSR Alpine Stowaway Pot 775ml. This Ohuhu stove fits inside it so well it's like it must have been specifically made for it. The whole thing fits like a glove inside the mesh bag that comes with this stove.
I could not be happier about it. :D
I've included a few pics so others can see for themselves ...
Edit: It's also worth mentioning that inside the stove itself there's also a little bit of space where it's possible to store a few small items to compliment your cookset like a lighter / fire starter, a small pouch of dry kindling, a scotch brite pad &/or tiny dishcloth, & maybe even a small folding set of camp utensils. It's a tight squeeze but I've managed to fit all of the above inside mine.
The only drawback to using the stove on this trip was, I was camping in a pine forest. When evergreen wood burns, it creates pitch, a black sap that gets on everything. The bottoms of my pans were covered in a thick layer of pitch, which was a nightmare to get off. I looked it up when I got home, and found out that what I should have done was to coat the bottoms of the pans with soap before cooking. Apparently, if you do this, the pitch will wash right off easily. So, file that away for future reference.
I own both a Ohuhu and a Trangia stoves.
I am going to review the Ohuhu, and compare it to the very popular Trangia and the new BioLite CampStove.
First the Ohuhu es exactly as you can see it in the pictures.
Stainless steel, seems to be electro welded, and pretty light.
The weakest points are the three moving parts. The triangles where the pot rests during cooking. You need to be a little careful with those and I guess that over time those are going to be the parts that will break.
The rest, will give you no trouble during the regular usage. They can be dropped and take the usual abuse and still will work, but to achieve the lightness they are not built like a tank.
The parts assemble and stay together easily. Takes less than ten seconds to put together or disassemble. It feels safe, and reasonably cool to the touch even during operation. You can light a fire and move it around if needed. I can do it with my bare hands, but it will be safer to use some sturdy gloves for insulation.
The Ohuhu comes with a nice little net for storage, that also seems to be just perfect to do the job.
To start a fire just assemble the Ohuhu gather some tinder, dry leaves or paper, put them in the stove and add a handful of little twigs. Set the on fire and enjoy. The rocket stove design takes care of the rest, creating the air circulation you need. As the fire grows, add a few more wood and the flames will grow bigger and bigger as the gassification takes place (you can see the fire coming out of the upper holes like in you kitchen stove).
If you have any trouble getting the fire going, you can just carefully lift the stove and blow from underneath to increase the oxygen flow until it can work on its own.
How fast can it boil a pot of water?
Well, it depends. It depends on the amount and kind of wood you use, how big the pot, and how cold the water is to begging with... In my case it tends to be around 10 to 15 minutes. If you are looking at it it seems like a long time, but if you start doing something else, you'll realize that it is already boiling before you know it.
After burning, it is actually pretty clean. You will have to wash your pots, but the Ohuhu packs neatly again in its net, and with a quick wiping will be clean enough so it doesn't make a mess in your bag.
So to compare it to the Trangia Alcohol stove:
The Ohuhu uses wood. You can usually find it everywhere for free. I love the ritual and the smell of it. If you are going to be flying, you can't take alcohol in your suitcase, so you would have to find it at your destination if you are taking the Trangia.
With alcohol, you either take too much with you, having to carry that extra weight, or you don't take enough, risking running out of it too soon.
The Ohuhu also can work with solid alcohol tablets, so you could carry a couple of those just in case if you want to.
Also, the Trangia has a rubber gasket to ensure a good seal, that tends to get old or even burn, and at least in my case has created a leak in my backpack. Not only making a huge mess with my gear, but also leaving me without fuel when I needed it the most...
The Trangia is more robust. The little burner is almost indestructible.
The alcohol burn is more consistent and reliable.
You may have a hard time looking for dry enough wood if the weather is rainy. Alcohol is a sure fire.
The wood tends to smoke more, so you can't cook inside with the Ohuhu, while with the Trangia I have done it under the extension of my tent (watch out for fire hazards!!!!)
The alcohol also burns very clean, while the wood tends to make a mess on the pots and pans. You are going to need some still wool or fine sand to clean your pots after using them on any wood fire.
(If you use the Ohuhu with solid alcohol tablets you wouldn't have any of the wood burning "disadvantages" but it feels that the Ohuhu's strong point or most common use is not going to be as an alcohol burner, but as a wood stove, hence my review comments)
COMPARE TO BIOLITE
The Ohuhu is WAY LIGHTER (and cheaper). Forget about carrying a Biolite if you are backpacking.
Both are rocket stoves. The BioLite uses the thermo generator to feed a little fan that keeps the oxygen flowing. To me this is just another part that can break or give problems. As I have described, you can just pick the Ohuhu up and blow if you need bigger flames. The Biolite is definitely safer if you can afford the extra weight and cash, but you can achieve the same effect.
Another advantage of the Biolite is that you can generate electricity to charge your electronics.
Again, I prefer to carry a couple of extra batteries with me. They are lighter, and I can use them wile walking if needed. The chargers in the BioLite have also given trouble to some users. My $10 batteries, are just that, $10, and I can find a new one in most gas stations...
So the BioLite is cool. Looks and feels great, and makes a beautiful toy. However, if more than camping you are actually hiking and backpacking, the Ohuhu may be a cheaper and lighter option for you.

I have test fired with the alcohol dish. Boils water much much faster than my Trangia alcohol stove setup. Ideal test conditions indoors (with stove exhaust fan running), room temp water 23C, brought 2cups of water to a rolling boil, right around 4min. Also does not need any time for alcohol plate to "bloom", goes into full fire essentially immediately. I guess air circulation of the stove contributes to faster boil times. This same test boil takes around 9min in my Trangia setup (including bloom time). Looking forward to firing up in the wild with wood/biomass.
As others have posted in reviews this makes a good budget cook system paired with a MSR Stowaway pot. You could certainly go lighter by pairing with a Titanium pot, but then again if you want an ultralight system you're probably even better off just boiling water in a pot directly over/next to an open fire and save the cost+weight of the wood stove altogether. I have seen some reviews that say the MSR 775ml pot will fit the stove, but have also seen a review saying the pot lid does not close fully with 775ml MSR pot (maybe that is with all the components/grill + stove + the slightly padded bag). I went with the larger 1.1L pot. The 1.1L pot has the same height as the 775ml pot as per online specs, but I think due to curved lid, the useable height is lower at the edges for the 775ml pot and maybe that is why the lid might not fully close with everything? (wood stove nested will be closer to edges of the 775ml pot, just a theory). Anyhow, I prefer the 1.1L pot as I figure it gives me more flexibility as this setup could be used for 2 people camping (boil 1L for 2 Ramen dinners, camp dinners, etc). Double the flexibility (1-2 person vs 1 person cooking) for 20% extra weight penalty seems like a good tradeoff. The 1.1L MSR pot fits the Ohuhu stove with all components (stove, grill, alcohol plate, storage bag) + there is also room to fit a couple of small bottles of alcohol (either for help starting a wood fire or for alcohol mode in case of rain/wet wood). Pictured with small bottle of dollar store mouth wash bottle, that I plan to put some alcohol in (of course labelling as poison so no mouth wash mistakes are made...).
Update: added photo of stove in action while camping, burning mixture of twigs/wood chips. Can definitely see gasifier mode in action, low smoke, but still will turn your pot black.
One thing I really recommend is using this with a skillet. I was able to make a delicious steak on this little stove, and to clean the skillet, I just flipped it over and put it back on the pot supports. The skillet self cleaned in the fire after just 5 or 10 minutes.
Finally, there was a day where the leaves and twigs were too wet to burn. After trying for close to an hour and failing to get a consistent flame, I fell back on the dish that came with the stove. I was able to fill it with cheap methyl alcohol I found at the dollar store and cook my meal regardless.
I very much enjoy the versatility of this stove and cannot see myself ever needing to buy another one. Very good for the price.
On the plus side the stove is well made (except the triangular pot holders are flimsy), very light weight and the "gasifier" double walled chamber worked very well, when it worked.
This stove could be much improved by Ohuhu if the stove, and especially the burn chamber, was larger (it would still be very light weight), and if the burn chamber could be fed from the side or bottom so a more constant burn could be maintained.
If ohuhu fixed those things they could complete with a solo
• extremely light and easy to use
• Price is amazing
• build is actually really good
• can require a blowing device to get the coals fired up over longer use. I use telescopic pole to blow the embers if the flame dies down
• it lacks a slot to keep feeding this hungry little guy...only slightly annoying. I just use pencil or pinky size sticks and feed carefully
• gets extremely hot all over. Be sure to have something under this when on dry ground/any none metal surface. I also pack a small multi tool for quick take apart and cool down. Also helps when using the cooking grate with smaller pots
All in all a great buy. Definitely get the wind screen to ...It’s been a huge help
I did some digging around and I know lots of people love their bushbuddy, and their firebox stoves, but hopefully this helps some new people in getting a affordable stove.
As someone who is fairly new into bushcraft, I’ve found a large collection of items that you can get under $40 which i think is a good price for building your kit. And the stove is one of them.
It came in today, and i gotta say i really like. it can break down to 5.3″ x 5.3″ x 3″ after you re-arrange the different sections
So far I’m impressed by how well it worked, and it lasted 10+ minutes on a handful of twigs from my backyard.
With lots of twig stove out there, this knock off is a good starter for under $40.
It's nicely packaged, and it appears to be really sturdy and well made! Everything fits together well and it works well. The instructions are brief but they do the job... A couple of drawings of how it fits together, but that works.
One thing I hadn't noticed in the description is that this also doubles as a solid fuel tablet stove... There's a holder for the pellets, and the inside reverses to put it underneath the pan holder.
A downside? The little pan holder fold-out bits seem flimsy to me, I am not sure how long they will last. If they break then I am sure it's just as easy to use the grill part to hold a pan (probably better actually). It's also a little bit heavy and bulky, but then it's made of stainless steel.
I suspect I might invest an extra $12 or so for the windshield too once I have used this more than a couple of times.
Oh yes! It's worth looking up: Ohuhu Portable Stainless Steel Wood Burning Camping Stove on Google because there are a few good YouTube videos about this (all of them complimentary) and they'll show you it in action if you are still undecided.
This would be great to keep as a spare, or even use as a main stove! I still have to b completely converted to wood, I prefer my spirit stoves, but this is helping :)
Anyway! If you are undecided, buy it! For 20 dollars and change you can't go wrong.
Hopefully, you find this review helpful.
