Emberlit "FireAnt" on Kickstarter - Tuesday, April 15, 2014
New Emberlit "FireAnt" on Kickstarter


The patented EmberLit Camp Stove is a lightweight, compact, wood burning stove that doesn't require you to carry any fuel. It packs completely flat to about 1/8th in. thick, weighs only 11.3 oz, and is 100% made in the USA from stainless steel. The new EmberLit-UL is made of titanium, in the USA, and weighs a mere 5.45 oz. 

Quick, Easy, and Dependable
What sets this stove apart from others is its ease of use. Properly fed, the EmberLit Stove requires minimal effort to produce and maintain an even flame with little or no smoke. This means that instead of fidgeting with the stove you can focus on cooking. Since the EmberLit makes much more efficient use of fuel than an open camp fire, a couple handfulls of twigs and sticks gathered on the trail is more than enough to boil water and cook a full meal.

With a little practice, the EmberLit can free you from the burden of carrying fuel and fuel canisters. However the EmberLit will also work as a windscreen for esbit tablets, trioxane fuel, alcohol stoves, storm candles, chafing dish heaters, and so on.

Simple, Robust, and Elegant in Design
Enjoying a hot meal to the soft, warm glow of the Emberlit stove will enhance any wilderness experience.

Cook your food and sanitize your water using just a handful of sticks. The EmberLit Stove takes up minimal space and weighs so little it can easily fit into bug out bags, 72-hour kits, and just about anywhere.  


Electric grids go down, gas lines are shut off, propane runs out, and even firewood becomes scarce. The EmberLit Stove is designed to use debris and scrap wood, which are always free and abundant. This is especially useful during prolonged utility outages after natural or social disasters.
