This is a great little stove by Firebox that we were able to have a part in by doing field testing, making comments and ultimately encouraging this design to be the production model. Wilderness Innovation was one of the first companies to purchase the original Firebox Folding Stoves and have seen it develop over the past years. We are delighted to be able to participate in the introduction of this new stove.
More Information Coming Soon – We will soon have video up on our YouTube channel showing the production model prototype and also some clips of beta testing the earlier model. Also we will have a podcast or vlog coming where Ben and I discuss the stove in detail; history of our involvement in looking for a stove like this and the development of the stove itself, included will be details on using the stove, test findings and specs. Etc.
Our primary interest in the stove was due to some special cook sets we started testing and developing. The cook sets for one, two, and four persons would include cook ware, dishware, and stove, clean up items, and importantly space to store 3 days basic foods. We’ll talk more about what led us to the Nano on the podcast, suffice it to say we wanted something that could use wood and alcohol as fuel.
The stove had to be small to fit in our cook sets, especially difficult was fitting one for the One Person Cook Set, we came close with a couple stoves, but just not quite a match for us. The Nano is just what we need for our cook sets. We will be selling it on its own as well as with the cook sets and other kits we are developing.
Here are some facts about the stove.

The pricing on the stove itself will be $39.95. The manufacturer is offering a pre order special price which is restricted to purchase only through them. We typically offer special kits, or bags with products we sell from other manufacturers, and we are planning a couple of deals that will offer the same kind of value over all as the manufacturer’s pre order. It is going to be 4-6 weeks yet before the stoves are ready to ship. Keep an eye on our Blogs, the product page, YouTube videos and our newsletters to be aware of the deals we will be offering.
Final note, we absolutely love this stove, light yet sturdy, easy to use and set up, all the parts are connected so there is nothing to lose, and the pricing is perfect for the value. Again we will be giving lots of information on the stove in the next month, stay with us and don’t miss any of it.
