It is particularly useful for planning for groups who share food or other items, but is also useful for individual walkers.

Question about Evernew stove simmering

Postby lawrence » Tue 27 Nov, 2018 10:52 pm

Has anyone managed to successfully get a decent simmer going with the Evernew stove? I've tried about 10 different homemade designs (usually revolving around an empty can) and they've all been pretty crappy due to the diameter of the can not matching up with the Evernew.

Was wondering if anyone has tried the Trangia simmer ring on the Evernew stove, and if so how well does it fit?

Alternative option was just to stash the Evernew for FBC trips and buy a Trangia 27 set (or maybe even go gas) to do real cooking with. Would be nice to have the simmer option in my UL setup though 8)

I used a tatonka over the trangia simmer ring to tame the evernew flames of fury...I'll try & get a pic for you, not a great fit though.

With my stove & windscreen combo I had better control with the tatonka.
The Trangia fits better though, but in my case, with the screen, it overheated the stove fuel & produced bigger flames not the controlled simmer i was after.

Your not the only one trying to tame the beast and make it more versatile. 8)

I haven't yet tried this yet but it looks like a simple solution from the BPL forum.

After moving from my Trangia stove I missed the simmer ring. The Trangia simmer ring would not work with the Evernew stove DX kit or the Ti pot stand. This one does for both and minimal weight to add to my kit. Since it is smaller diameter than the stove it will fit down in the DX kit. I flared the bottom of the can to fit inside the outer ridge of the Evernew stove and found an opening size that allowed the same simmering I was used to with the Trangia.

Looks like a good fit actually, but yeah I had the same issue with some of the DIY can projects. Burnt through fuel much faster than I was anticipating and just wasn't an ideal solution.
Great photos btw :D

That ring idea is interesting, could be easy to make out of some alu flashing too. I have a feeling that removing the outer rings and leaving the inner rings open will just end up in a Trangia-level flame which is still a bit much for simmering though. The Evernew really is insane in regards to power hey

Haha this is the one that inspired me to start DIY'ing the simmer ring, because I also ran into the same problem with the cross stand (but have since built a new pot support). I tried to copy this guys design but the part I was having trouble with was flaring the bottom of the can to fit over the stove.. I tried it 3 times and every time I had flames escaping from the bottom/outside of the simmer ring and the flame didn't get much smaller :x

Just for fun, try adding some water ( a few drops) and see what happens.

So I caved and bought a Trangia 27-8 (the HA pots and pan and UL windscreen + kettle).

Decided the headache of walking into stores with my piece of paper trying to find random steel/tin objects that lined up with my pot stand dimensions wasn't worth it and it'd just be easier to throw some money at Paddy Pallin :lol:
