FireFly UL Titanium Collapsible Wood Stove
Now you're cooking . . .
I just love making something that
is the lightest option you can find. In 2012 I conceived of
an UL wood burning stove made out of titanium. Numerous improvements in design were suggested by users and by
my own experiences with it on trail. To keep up with demand, I am now having the stove parts laser-cut here in Ohio, which
makes for an even nicer finished product. The result is that this is just about the lightest right-sized collapsible
wood burning stove you can get. I also make a larger stove, the
SPECIFICATIONS: FireFly stoves have a stainless steel mesh floor and weigh just 2.7 ounces, or 2.8 ounces with a FlexPort. My socks weigh more! The FireFly assembles and comes apart easily and quickly, forming a flat package about a quarter inch thick and going easily into even the tiniest pack in its pouch. Other titanium wood burners are generally heavier and bulkier. The standard heavy duty 8 mil ziplock pouch that you will get with the stove adds only 9g and if you choose to get the optional reinforced tyvek pouch it is only 11g. Small or wide pot supports, if you use them, come in at a measly 2.5g or 3.5g per pair. The optional notched titanium floor weighs 9g, the same as the standard mesh floor.
The FireFly is designed to work very well with lots of different pots. Medium-sized 700 ml to 900 ml pots work especially well. Many folks now use cooking mugs, tall pots, and even large beverage cans (Heineken and Fosters and others) that have a smaller bottom surface area. To address this, the stove comes standard with titanium "small pot supports" that attach securely and make an X at the top of the stove if you need them for your favorite pot. Titanium "wide pot supports" that give the fire more room under pots with wide bottoms are also included. They will support the weight of a lightweight pot containing up to 3 cups of water. If you have a heavy pot and/or want to heat a liter or more of water, you can get my optional "heavy pot supports".
The FireFly fuel box below your pot holds 42 cubic inches of fuel. One loose filling of twigs will usually boil a couple cups of water, but it is easy to add additional twigs or other fuel as needed. The optional FlexPort allows you to feed longer pieces of wood into the firebox and is very popular. The stove is easy to light from either underneath the mesh floor (bottom lighting), through an open FlexPort (side lighting), or with a small fire started on top of a twig load (top lighting), and has a strong chimney effect to get twigs burning quickly. To slow down the burn, especially with an open FlexPort, you can use the optional notched titanium floor to reduce bottom ventilation.
Check out the Stove Videos page to see demonstrations of both the FireFly and FireFly XL in action, and to see how the FlexPort option works. Other pages have information on my MultiFuel option for alcohol AND Esbit, my ULtimate Esbit System, as well as accessory descriptions and mouth-watering videos of the Bake Kit (for cornbread, muffins, biscuits and such), and a titanium Mini Grill (for steaks, burgers, or other grilled food). I also make a unique UL Hanging Esbit burner for the FireFly with Emberlit models available. Spare parts can be found on my Contact page.
