The Woodgas Stove Saved my life
About a year ago, the stove saved my life. I was on a kayak on a North Idaho river early in spring. After capsizing in the river, soaking all my clothes and sleeping bag, and developing hypothermia, I spent a subfreezing night huddled over 10,000 BTU of WoodGas heat. It was one of the worst nights of my life - and I've seen a few. But the stove gave me the heat to survive until morning.

I received the wood gas stove and it is truly amazing!!!! I had ordered one of those fancy wood bar-b-q cookstoves for hundreds of dollars also and they are total garbage compared to your stove!! I would like to order 3 more wood gas stoves..

The Woodgas Stove is better than the Sierra Zip Stove
I compared the Woodgas stove to the Sierra stove and I think the Woodgas Camp Stove is much better:
In operating the Woodgas stove I've found:
-Very little blackening on the bottom of the pot
-Sturdier base for heavier pots
-The handle removes for storage and can double as tongs for removing the Hot
cross bar or other hot items.
-The outside of the stove stays cooler due to the air flow.
-The flame mostly stays in the stove rather than leaping up the sides of the pan.
-Price is about the same or a little lower if purchased from your website.
-Seems to boil water in the same amount of time.
Overall it felt like it was better quality, mainly due to the fact that the Sierra stove is trying to be a super light-weight stove for serious back packers. Since I am getting these stoves for camping and emergency preparedness groups/classes, weight is not a concern.
Overall I am very pleased with this stove/price, so that is why I ordered a couple more. After my second order I now have 4 Woodgas Camp Stoves!

The new WoodGas Camping Stoves are a revolution in the outdoor cooking industry. The stove encompasses many traditional camp stove ideas and utilizes today's cutting edge engineering and technology to produce a clean, efficient heat without specialized fuels.
The WoodGas Camping Stoves are unlike any other portable camping stoves on the market. The woodgas stove uses a small fan to draw in fresh air into the two stage combustion chamber, allowing for a cleaner, hotter and more efficient stove. Two AA batteries power the fan on one of two speed settings for easy temperature control.
Whether your are backpacking, hiking, camping, making smores or tailgating at your favorite game, the WoodGas Camping Stoves are the all around convenient solution to your portable outdoor cooking needs.
When we say "Pack the stove, not the fuel," literally we mean you do not need to take any fuel with you. No need for bulky propane canisters or messy charcoal bricks.
The WoodGas Camping Stoves will burn just about any combustible material. Everything from grasses, sticks and twigs to branches and pine cones. The WoodGas Camping Stoves will burn just about anything.

History of WoodGas Stove Technology
Dr. Tom Reed, a professor of Chemical Engineering at the Colorado School of Mines, first investigated cooking with wood in 1986.
The year before, he had visited Africa and discovered the problem of third world cooking. Cooking in the developing world is largely done over open fires. These fires are often indoors, and are very detrimental to the health of the occupants. Smoke from indoor fires cause emphysema, lung cancer and eye disease. The fires are also very inefficient, causing deforestation.
Dr. Reed was a specialist in Wood Gasification. A process where wood is gasified to produce fuel for heating and electrical production. He decided that applying his gasification knowledge might provide a solution to problems of developing world cooking.
Over the years, he tinkered with various solutions, and by 2000 had built early prototypes of the WoodGas camping stove. Eventually, he and his partners built a prototype ready for manufacture and sale.
In 2005, Spenton LLC was formed to manufacture and sell the stoves. Spenton LLC is owned and operated by James Becker, a resident of Denver Colorado. iENERGY Inc. has partnered with Spenton LLC to market the WoodGas camping stoves .
Today, Tom Reed and his partners run two organizations, The Biomass Energy Foundation (BEF), which works to develop energy solutions using biomass gasification; and WoodGas LLC, which works on developing new stove designs for third world applications. Every stove sold today includes a royalty which is paid to WoodGas LLC and BEF for continuing research and development.
We offer fire starting aids and solar battery chargers for your convenience. Convenient and secure payment options including Visa and Master Card.
