I've tried a few other stoves before like the Esbit and the British Army hexy stove, but they have all been lacking in some respect, where you can use it or what fuel you can use etc.
I saw a video for the Firebox on youtube and thought it was great, but too big and heavy. So I started looking around for smaller alternatives, and there were a few.
Most notable were the Emberlit and The Pocket Stove. I was poised to hit the BUY button on The Pocket Stove when I found a vid for The BushBox.
The pro's and con's will differ for each of you depending on who you are, where you are and what you're using it for, but I found this to be the best for the following reasons:

Out of the 3, the Bushbox was the cheapest at £20 (The Pocket Stove = £25) and the Emberlit around £26).
(The BushBox came with trivets as standard, whereas the with others you had to buy things like this as accessories pushing up the cost).

The Emberlit was too big for me (I understand they have now made a smaller version to compete with these stoves), the Pocket Stove was thinner and I didn't like the way you could see it flexing when the guy was putting it together).

Both the Emberlit and The Pocket Stove have a funneled top meaning the pot stand area was quite small.
By contrast, the BushBox was square at the top meaning I could stand more than a cup on it and still have it stable.

The Emberlit only has a solid base plate WITHOUT holes, The Pocket Stove only has a base plate WITH holes, BUT the BushBox has BOTH meaning I can burn wood and have the solid plate underneath to catch the hot stuff, also, by swapping the plates around I can use this with my Trangia alcohol burner and solid fuels such as hexamine, making this more versatile and safer than the other two.

Got my today, came through the letter box, a cooker through the letter box, hahaha.

Really easy to put together, clicks together and forms a totally solid little burner. Probably the most efficient way of heating your pan, uses hardly any fuel. I chopped a small bit of log we use in our wood burner up into little pieces, probably used 1/5 of the wood I cut to boil two large mugs of tea and do a large portion of scrambled eggs, then just let it burn for ten minutes. Tiny amount of fuel, seriously surprised at how it heated the mess tin, I expected to use all the fuel.

When you are ready to take it apart remember that there are little latches cut out in the top four joining points. You need to gently pull both the front and back sections along their upper edge outwards and upwards. This allows the latches to clear the little protrusions and easily slide upwards. If you try and just pull them up they won't budge, take a close look when you get one and you'll see what I mean.

Similar thing when you put it together, just gently push the front and back down then place the burner on a flat surface and push evenly down on the front and back till you hear the click of the latches as they snap under the protrusions. This will be solid, I stood on mine to just to prove a point to myself.

Great product worth every penny,

Anthony

Pros: very robust.
Cons: There are a lot of reviews online regarding disassembly of this product. Be very careful when taking apart. I cut myself quite badly and the box bent on one of the clips. I contacted the company and they replied it's impossible to cut yourself or bend it. Very poor service.

Fits in your back pocket - seriously - in a little flat pouch. Once you get the hang of it it's easy to make and dismantle - there are tiny locking bits of metal that need pushing out on the tops of the sides. Really good, and stuck in the front of your tent it gives you something to do on those long, cold winter nights.

This is a great little stove for 1 or 2 people at an absolute push. Nicely designed and when dissembled, takes up next to no space in my daysack when flat packed. I've used it with wood and it was fine but it excelled with my trangia and a home made penny stove as it provided a little extra weather shielding. It provides a good solid base for cooking using mess tins or, using the provided trivets, heating up a single mug. It arrived quickly, is of good quality, is easy to assemble but a little fiddly to disassemble, until you get the nack (see previous reviews). If you're a little more adventurous or cooking for more people, get the next size up.I really recommend this product.

Love it !
Looks great. Packs neatly into a very small package. Can be used with a variety of fuels. Works great.
Could just be a wee bit less pricey, but I guess you get what you pay for and this is a quality product.

Length: 5:10 Mins
This little stove is one of the best compromise you can find between portability and efficiency. It fits inside the back pocket of your jeans yet can help you start a fire and boil water in less than 5 minutes. So you can easily pack this for a trek, a day at the beach, into a survival EDC that you want to remain compact.

There are a few advantages to a hobo stove: less smoke, easier lighting, fewer combustion materials (here it is fairly versatile: wood, esbit system, even pellets because the holes in the base are small). It is a lot more discreet than an open fire, and it is NOT an open fire (these are forbidden where I live but here this would constitute a loophole). It is also a lot safer because the fire is concentrated in one area and the ash tray collector keeps it mostly in place.

Also the stove is quite stable and can handle a large pan easily despite its size.

Finally, the pieces are made of fine metal and where well crafted so that everything holds its place and the sides are not creased by the fire. This is why you should think about what price you put in these. The difference in price will be material dependent. This one is going to last long. I know they also make a titanium version which must be lighter. The design is very well thought of with holes and dents where you need them to handle your stove with a twig or a knife.

The only issue I had with this is the dismantling because the edges of the metal are coarse and I cut my fingers twice. Well, I don't care so much because I was at home and outside I use gloves. The sides have little dents to secure everything in place and it was a bit difficult to separate the pieces because of it after the first burn.

Apart from this, really a useful and lightweight solution for your camping needs.

In the video, I show the stove in use to make charcloth (I didn't mention you need a hole in the box). It worked like a charm.
