Bushbox Titanium Comparison
I have this stove and the stainless steel Bushbox XL, the weight difference is noticeable when carrying around in your pack all day.

Performance wise they are very similar, both stoves can produce a staggering amount of heat if loaded up. Use less wood and the stoves can simmer food without burning it, it just takes a bit of practice to regulate the heat. I have boiled 1.6 litres of water in 3.5 minutes & cooked a meal for 4 people on these stoves.

The engineering of these stoves is brilliant, the guys at Bushcraft Essentials have paid attention to detail & it shows the stoves are incredibly versatile and the build quality is superb. It seems obvious that the stoves were designed by people that actually use them & know what the want out of a stove. There are options to use a trangia alcohol stove or even solid fuel tablets as an alternative to biofuel / wood.

If you cook with wood you will get soot on your pots, I use stainless steel pots & smear them with a little bit of washing up liquid before cooking with them, this makes the pots much easier to clean afterwards.

Both of these stoves consume a surprisingly small amount of fuel when cooking on them, the efficiency of the air holes ensures that all the fuel is consumed and all that is left at the end is ash.

Is it worth paying the extra for the titanium stove? In my opinion if you can afford this one then go for it, the weight saving is noticeable but they are both very good stoves. I keep the titanium stove for my backpack & the other for the car.

Great product with cosmetic flaws
I have to say that there are cosmetic flaws-so many scratches, for the unit I received. Obviously, scratches do not affect the function of the Bushbox XL Ti. But, for a product which costs me over $200.00 cdn, I deserves better.

light portable backpacking stove
This stove weights only 535g with the case. The quality of titanium used in this product is premium. It is expensive but as a one time investment, it is a great deal.

Review by MasonLY / (Posted on 6/9/2015)
An almost perfect tool for both cooking and warming, but needs improvements!
I am not a british guy (Norwegian) So i am not going to spend a thousand words on a single detail but rather be short and efficient.

The XL version is what i would consider a rather small tool, i'd dread to think how small the actually small version is and how much less use it would be due to the size factor. If you're a serious bushcrafter or love an outdoor adventure then this is for you.

Reasons:

1 Naturally, you make fireplaces under the advanced trips, yes? Whatever amount of woodstock you need to make your dinner; This one only need ONE single wood chopped into several small pieces for easy fire. This is EXTREMELY useful when you can't afford to take with you all too much firewood from your home. Bring one firewood with you to just put the flames to life and the local vegetation will suffice to keep the flames alive for the rest of your needs.

2 It takes incredibly little space! It comes as shown, wrapped together as a flat plate, it's about as flat and wide as a DVD box, i kid you not! Just slightly wider. Certainly proving itself an essential tool to bring with you for 'economic' fireworks.

3 The way it is design, it has a filter where all the wood burns quickly and falls through as puny ash, on the flat plate at the very bottom. There wind invites itself in and blows it out, cleaning the basement of the stove for you if there's gentle wind present. It otherwise allows you to collect ash in advance, ash that skilled bushcrafters use to clean their canteen sets and whatnot afterwards, cleaning them free from ash by ironically using ash mixed with water, it becomes a serum that effectively rubs off ash texture from your canteen so spend it wisely by saving the clean ash (if you can) in a small tin box or whatever else could contain ash without spilling inside your pack. Because this is a standing stove that could literally be standing on snow and still offer you a live fire, then you could also bring it with you inside your tent if truly need be (consider what you burn as it will soil the air with the smoke!) My point is, if you are an observant person, then this is a very safe (not entirely, but very) tool to bring with you into 'intimate' areas for camping. Such as under a protective tree, a little cave or a lavo (A lavo would be perfect as i have experienced a real open fire inside one, a warm, cozy night!)

These are the flaws:

1 If you overload it with fire or tinder, and by that i mean with wood that goes above its surface and does not match the size that keeps itself below its walls; Then chances are the stove will warp in the seemingly all too powerful heat. It is a tough stove but it does not appear it is built for powerful fire bigger than itself and will thus begin to bend and warp into a flawed ugliness which in worst case scenario can ruin the joints of the tool and become utterly broken as it needs to be reforged back into its good design. This is frustrating if you intend to use the stove also to keep warm at night, meaniing that you NEED to be dressed isolated and truly warmly to survive the cold while the stove will protect you in its aura of warmth. But if you overdo it, then the extra barbeque plate that follows the set will be bent, the bottom (the legs) will be bent and possibly the walls themselves, this 'needs' to be fixed in future designs if Bushcraft-Essentials are interested in remaining masters in outdoor stove designs. I paid for my XL stove and i don't consider it worth the full price because of this embarrasing flaw!

[comment by Bushcraft Essentials: overloading/overheating will damage the product - abusing a product does not mean it is flawed :-)]

2 It absorbs heat EXTREMELY well. This could be considered a good thing, and obviously a neccessary thing since the stove's purpose is to intensify and preserve wood and fire for as long as possible so obviouisly it needs to adapt to its content. Being what it is however, accidents WILL happen, and they will happen easily unless you make sure your stove are placed on somehow a table, perhaps a large stone working as a table for you (place it on stone would be the best option as its heated aura manipulates the living surroundings around it! Such as vegetation and elements alike.) now it is common sense that all stoves are not to be touched, they are like candle lights essentially but even they needs to be moved around when lighted now and then, luckily, these 'sticks' are included and can be used to move the stove but they ALSO get extremely hot fast, meaning that if they are attached to the stove too long (which is a very short time), even at the edge; Then the safety sticks will burn your hands and melt your perhaps EXPENSIVE outdoor gloves and ruin their waterproofness! My solution to this is to bring with you a single (or two if you feel you afford the pack space) WORKING glove! Gladly gloves you use in the garden to soil in the dirt, or those that construction workers use, these are fodder for damage and will go into the fire for you, saving you the expensive outdoor gloves for you for their safer purpose. Other than that, i hope Bushcraft-Essentials are planning on making a bigger version with a layer that better protects people from burning themselves on the exterior designs. (don't ask me what that would be, i'm the critic, not the creator!)

[comment by Bushcraft Essentials: cooking with fire produces heat, again this is not a flaw but a desired feature. Heat in turn requires careful operation - see operating and safety instruction in the XL manual]

3 VERY hard to clean! Being what it is, it's full of holes, more holes than swiss cheese and strong as steel. Wiping this stove clean from dirth and molten foreign material is very hard to do as you need to access sheltered areas of the stone both inside and outside. If you are like me that likes to take care of the tools that will in return take care of you; Then you will end up cleaning your stove, it cost a lot after all! You might want to be prepared to enlist a sharp object to the task of scraping the stove clean from molten contamination as well as ash if not scrubbed well.

[comment by Bushcraft Essentials: just put it in a dishwasher and it will be clean. But most of our clients do not clean the XL at all - if operated according to the instructions it will not develop soot and will stay relatively clean. The "holes" are all there for a purpose and are usually a design feature which gets a lot of praise]

All in all i am VERY pleased with this product as it makes my trips both easier and cheaper when it comes to cooking and warming, that is always a good thing, but considering what we are in truth capable of today as engineers and visionaries alike then i must say i am also a bit disappointed. I usually say that if a man is willing to go 'this' far in a project - then he should go AAAALL the way as well to reach maximum results. Such is the role of technology and this Bushcrafh Essential tool is 'not' the pinnacle of the outdoor stoves. Not as long as there are flaws with the strong sides.

Review by Bushcraft Essentials indeed. / (Posted on 12/7/2014)
Superb design and manufacture. Real cooking power at a portable weight if you can afford it.
I've always felt that most of the portable stoves are not big enough to produce enough heat quickly, particularly in winter. The Bushbox XL and its rival, the Firebox, provide a solution for this problem but with a weight penalty which is unacceptable to many, including myself. By making the superbly designed XL in titanium, Bushcraft Essentials has overcome the weight problem by producing a "big" stove at around the 535g mark, including the necessary stowage bag. The 8-hinged design is, I believe, the ultimate possible and will be difficult to improve upon. It takes longer to lay the 2 trivets in place across the top than it does to open and prepare the box itself, this not an exaggeration. Excellent design and manufacture. It is difficult to say whether or not the titanium will warp when a very hot fire is built inside, as I have not yet had a really hot one. The only minor criticism with respect to the product quality is that the stowage of the 2 trivets is insecure and leaves room for improvement but since the BB XL comes in a well-made Cordura bag this is not much of an issue. The price is hmmmm - at the limit. If you want your food fast (as I do), you don't want to cart a couple of extra pounds around all day (as I don't) and you feel can afford it, then this is the solution.
