Burns efficiently - I boiled a pan of water in about 5 minutes, and cooked up a mess of hot dogs on a circular grill right over the flames.
Very little waste - several hours of burning wood in kindling sized chunks resulted in a remarkably small pile of ash (I'd estimate less than a cup)
Burns any kind of combustable biomass (Sticks, grass, dung, pinecones, etc) so there's no need to purchase or transport fuel.
This bad boy is HEAVY. It's steel encapsulated ceramics. . . what do I expect?! It tips the scales at 28 lbs, which while making it portable, rules it out of any sort of camping other than car camping. I'd say it's even too heavy to make it worth taking along for tailgating - you could bring a portable gas grill that has a more controllable cook flame and weighs 1/2 to 1/3 as much.
You have to keep it from getting wet - the instructions are pretty explicit about this. I'm not sure if this is to protect the cast iron pot cover, the steel sheathing, or the ceramic insert, but it's mentioned several times. This means you can't leave it out in the elements, and you'll have to be extra careful when camping or tailgating.
The feeding of the fuel needs to be monitored reasonably closely - you can set it up to simmer once you have a good bed of coals, but I found the videos' claim of 30 - 60 minutes of simmer time to be a bit of an exaggeration. Now, I was using mostly pine as my fuel, so maybe using a hardwood would make a significant difference.
If you're looking for a great option for an emergency stove, While I think there are more portable and flexible options (The Kelly Kettle, for instance) I believe the Stove Tec stove would do a fine job providing a decent cooking option. I also think that if you are living in an "off the grid" situation where you have a kitchen set up that doesn't move, the Stove Tec would be ideal. I just think it's too unwieldy to use as a portable stove option in camping, tailgating, picnics, etc.
The stove itself is well made and sturdy. AND it has a 10 year warranty.
I absolutely love how this StoveTec side feeding design allows the use of larger, long pieces of wood (being the typical shape branches come in), making it very easy to feed a consistent amount into the main opening, without having to break the branches up or chop wood into small chunks against the grain. I also found it very easy to start, following the youtube directions by the guy on the AfterBURNER Stove vids, where he adds four 1" x 3/4" or so sticks into the main opening (both doors open) and a very loose gathering of long shreds of paper mixed with small twigs placed vertically throughout the paper into the top (titled StoveTec Basics: Lighting your StoveTec Rocket Stove). This setup lit easily, and in less than a few minutes, I had a good fire burning. My kids and I walked outside for about 5 minutes and gathered one plastic shopping bag full of dead pine branches and twigs on the ground just outside our house, and only used about 1/3 of that bag for an hour of consistent heat, at a level that would be similar to a large high gas burner on your stove. It was easy to maintain that same level of heat, just by ensuring the same number/ volume of sticks were in the burn chamber at any given time- basically the 4-5 sticks I used to light the stove in the first place.
Like another recent reviewer said, I also think my stove must have a lighter fill material in it (I didn't take off the top), because it is definitely lighter than a solid ceramic core would weigh, and that many reviewers had complained about. I find the stove easy to lift (I am a small gal, & not a weightlifter), but the insulating properties are definitely there, and I can comfortably touch the sides of the stove even after an hour of burn, without hurting myself. The bottom is not all that hot either- I have the stove on tile, but don't feel too much in the way of heat transfer to the ground when I move the stove. It actually is light enough to carry easily in your car to the park or to the beach, and I absolutely am planning more trips just cuz of the stove- heh. Also, because of my townhouse/ courtyard situation, I am very conscious of smoke, and this puppy has very little- WAY less than my charcoal grill, that's for sure. It's so easy to use and start (and stop- just shut the doors) that I let my 10 and 12 yo set it up and light it- with supervision of course. They happily cooked marshmallows tonight, and it was a wonderful thing to have this mini campfire right at home. Love this thing.
If you are looking for permanent rocket type stove, one can be built in 10 minutes out of brick for around $15 in materials. Other types are also available for under $20 total cost. They perform exactly like the StoveTec so in reality one is paying an extra $100 for cosmetic features and portability. If the StoveTec is the only available portable option, then yes its worth the $125.
I chose the StoveTec over the EcoZoom primarily because I much prefer the green exterior over the cream color of the EcoZoom. Also, the StoveTec was $5 less expensive. I know the two companies are pretty much intertwined, but again the green exterior of the StoveTec won out.
I'm not really a prepper, but using and building these rocket stoves has been a blast.
