Bushcraft Essentials Bushbox 

Among the most important pieces of equipment for any backwoods adventurer or outdoorsy type to have is a reliable, lightweight stove—and we can thank the Germans for designing one as efficient as it is low-tech.

The medium-size Bushcraft Essentials Bushbox, which was introduced in Europe in 2012, comes out of its small canvas bag as a pile of stainless steel plates about a half centimeter thick and weighing about 9.5 ounces. Assembled by connecting a series of nifty catches and sliding plates into various slits, the Bushbox stands about 4.5 inches high and has a grill, ash plate and trivets on which you can put anything from a frying pan to a single cup of coffee.

There are no moving parts, no gas tank, and in keeping with its German engineering, it's about as elegant as a steel box can be. The heat source can be an alcohol burner like Trangia or fuel cube like Esbit or a campfire of twigs will do just fine.

People go camping to get back to basics, and this stove couldn't get much more basic.

Lone Cone, a longtime online-only retailer, opens at 412 S. Sixth St. on Thursday, May 5. Lone Cone is the sole U.S. distributor for Bushcraft Essentials Bushbox.
