A hobo stove for every occasion
Cooking with wood
Making fire with wood and cooking on it is the classic way to use a Hobo. You can also enjoy a nice campfire. Since no fossil fuels are used, you are very environmentally friendly with wood..
As wood gasifier
With the optional pellet plate wood pellets can be burned or gasified very efficiently. Pellets are inexpensive and easy to transport. Once the fire burns properly with wood pellets, it does not smoke.
Spirit burner as energy source
Alcohol burners can easily be used with the FlexFire 4. You either place the burner directly on the burner plate or put it in the Trangia Plate. Gas burners can also be easily combined with the FlexFire 4. Spirit and gas may be used in many places where fire is prohibited. Of course, this must also be found out beforehand.
Esbit and fuel paste as fuel
Esbit pieces are amazingly strong and suitable for cooking.
Burning paste is especially convenient indoors, as no toxic gases are produced. So a FlexFire 4 can be used in combination with fuel paste to keep food warm.
Material of the FlexFire 4
The entire FlexFire series is made of a rustproof and heat-resistant stainless steel titanium alloy. This alloy is particularly low in distortion and can therefore withstand very high temperatures over a long period of time.

Where does the word hobo stove come from?
The word originally refers to North American migrant workers. These often used empty food cans as stoves. The chimney effect allowed them to keep warm or cook well. With a hobo stove, the pot is heated much more effectively than with a conventional fire, because less heat is lost at the sides.
What makes a Hobo so special?
Effective due to chimney effect
Because of the chimney effect hobo stoves work so well. The air flows from below to the fire. It is drawn upward by the heat and the elongated design. This way, fresh air always gets to the fire and the wood burns very effectively without really smoking. It is also important that the openings on the sides are not too large. Otherwise, there will be strong turbulence, which will weaken the effect..
Langlebig und nachhaltig
Ein FlexFire 4 kann bei normaler Verwendung nicht kaputt gehen. Selbst wenn sich ein Teil verbiegen sollte, kann man es einfach selbst wieder gerade biegen.
Sollte dennoch ein Teil sehr stark beschädigt werden, kann es ohne Probleme ausgetauscht werden. Bis jetzt hat uns noch keine Anfrage zum Tausch eines Teils erreicht.

What is the best way to clean the FlexFire 4?

Is discoloration normal?
Yes, discoloration occurs with the FlexFire compared to the new condition. At very high temperatures, the plates usually warp slightly. This does not affect the function.
Can I light a fire anywhere?
