Bushbox Ultralight Outdoor Pocket Stove Test and Review

Bushbox Ultralight Outdoor Pocket Stove Test and Review

One of the key factors when hiking and on the move is the weight of your survival gear – even an EDC bag can get a bit heavy when you try to cover all your survival needs.

Well, in this review I am covering one of the very lightest, fully functioning survival stoves you can get today.

The Bushbox Ultralight Outdoor Pocket Stove from Bushcraft Essentials in Germany have produced a cooking stove that is a mere 2 1/4 oz in weight. [61 grams] – thats almost half the weight of an iPhone..!!!

The Bushbox Ultralight folds down to an amazing 1.5 mm thick, making this a super light, super compact quality stove.


  • Multi fuel stove
  • 100% stainless spring steel 5 parts
  • Carry weight 61 grams
  • Carry thickness 1.5 mm
  • Optional ashtray
  • Optional cotton carry bag

In this review I will be covering how to assemble the UltraLight Stove in its various configurations depending on the fuel type and then firing it up and cooking up a survival meal.


The only tricky bit about the Bushbox Ultralight Outdoor Pocket Stove is assembling the stove – it will take you a few attempts to get the hang of how to hold the stove whilst squeezing and manipulating the parts together.

Maybe a half dozen attempts and you’re there..!

Other than that, you’re good to go – a perfect little stove, more than capable of performing all cooking tasks from a cup of water for your coffee stop to a main meal.

Everything fits and locks together perfectly and this makes it a sturdy little unit. Disassembly is really easy once one side is ‘unclipped’ the whole unit will come apart – very nice and very easy….

Price wise I think the Ultralight offers good value for your money, currently under £30 +shipping from Amazon, you’re paying for quality and good design here, as well as a nice bit of lightweight kit.

Overall, I liked using this stove very much, it seems to be a very “user friendly” and I tend to choose carrying it with me when out for a days hiking and travelling light.
