It is made from Stainless steel and has a spirit dish as well as a wood grate. I burn Cat Litter on mine and carry a small plastic bag full, enough for one twenty minute burn.Cat litter is as cheap as chips and a bagfull lasts for ever. I use a 120 diameter Zebra brand heavy stainless pot with a hanger handle and lid. This gets really sooted, so I carry a wodge of stainless steel wool and five minutes in the nearest stream has both pot and stove shining like new.The alternatives are a Trangia or the nice little Gaz that all nests together in the pot and lid.The Lixada goes very well on pine cones, leafs, kindling, and sheeps wool that is lying around. It is handy at a standing camp for boiling spuds or rice or anything not requiring finess!
ah I am not the only one to have discovered that. You might like to get some hamster bedding as the fire starter - its just wood shavings and also cheap. I orginally got the wooden cat litter to fill in some loudspeaker hollow stands to stop them ringing when struck to deaden them and had a lot left over
