At half the weight, the Titanium G2 5" Firebox Stove is very specialized for those wanting the larger size, burn performance, and amazing versatility of its heavy duty big brother which is made of Stainless Steel.
This multi-fuel cook stove is able to utilize wood and other fuels found in nature. Solid fuel tablets, alcohol burners, iso-butane gas burners, gel fuels (Sterno), wood pellets or charcoal briquettes. The Titanium Firebox Stove is also easy to set up. It effortlessly opens into position, and when it's time to go it folds flat - ready to slide into your pack.
I've been testing this stove all camping season and have increasingly felt that its performance seemed a little better than the original Stainless Steel Firebox. It's especially evident when camping at 11K ft. It took a few days of thinking "I must be crazy" before I realized that perhaps Titanium's much lower conductivity means more heat gets reflected back into the fire for an even more efficient burn. There's enough of a difference that I'm sure you'll see it too. Please, someone, confirm my theory so I'll know I'm not nuts!
NOTE: Please watch the video below. There's a lot of information that I want to share about the Ti Firebox Stove which I've covered in the informational video below.
1. Burn In Procedure- In testing this stove, I started with small fires and worked my way up to larger fires. In the past when heat testing Ti Firebox Stove prototypes I always started with a very big fire which didn't yield satisfactory results. I don't know why or even if it really makes a difference, but I think there may be advantages to taking it slow. You can see by watching the video that I've put my Ti Firebox Stove through its paces. By only using cooking fires, no bigger than necessary, you may yield even better results than me.
2. Don't tamp your fire- While Ti has a much higher melting point than SS it actually becomes just as soft from the heat as SS so placing downward pressure on the Fire Grate may cause it to yield (This is true with the SS FB as well.) Regardless, I don't recommend tamping your fire in a FB Stove since it breaks up the hot coals and blocks air flow choking out the fire. If you're trying to get the last flames to go out prior to grilling it may make sense to tamp a fire. If that's the case, do it very carefully.
Stove Buying Guide by Steve: If you're having a hard time deciding, I hope this helps.
3" G2 Nano Vs 5" G2 Firebox, The 5" Firebox has a larger deeper burn chamber, more BTU output & can hold more hot coals which means high cooking performance. The Nano maintains all the same amazing versatility and capability but in a much smaller, simpler form factor. Think of it as a minimalist version of the higher horse powered 5" Firebox Stove. You can do all the same things, you'll just need to pay closer attention to fuel management with the Nano.
Titanium VS Stainless Steel: SS is the heavy duty option, basically bomb proof. If you like big over the top fires, long into the night. I would recommend the SS 5" Stove (all alloys of SS loose corrosion resistant through wood fire temps. maintain corrosion resistance easily with a light coat of oil between uses). Titanium is 40% lighter, (5" Stove is basically half the weight) corrosion proof and cools down fast. If you're carrying your gear on your back and are focused on cooking you'll be glad to have a 5" Ti Stove (Panel adjustments may be needed, easily done by hand). The 3" Nano's less overall heat potential means it doesn't need much if any of the above mentioned maintenance (applies to both Ti & SS).
The choice comes down to backpacking vs car camping, and cooking performance. SS is more sturdy, Ti feels amazing in your hand. The Nano is a "gem of a stove" for those keeping things simple. The 5" Stove is like having a commercial kitchen at camp. In the end, you can't go wrong, most people want more than one stove because needs change depending on the trip. I've learned that a trip's success greatly depends on having the right gear (right up there with the weather).
Have fun, be safe and love your family, Steve
