Stove Capacity

The ThermoJet MicroLite is intended as a personal stove, cooking one or two serving "simmer and serve" meals such as rice, pasta, noodles, soup, etc. The stove is designed for pots with a diameter between 4-3/4" and 5-5/8". This generally covers pots rated at 1 l, 1 qt, .9 l, .85 l, 750 ml, 18 oz and most other pots with a capacity between a pint and a liter.

A larger stove is available for pots with a diameter between 5-3/4" and 6-1/2". This is generally suitable for pots with a capacity between a liter and 1-1/2 quarts. The large capacity stove is available at no extra cost. Simply select the large stove on the order form.

Note: These sizes are intended as guidelines. Some cookware manufacturers publish inaccurate ratings. For example, a 1 qt Bugaboo™ holds nearly 1-1/2 qt. The 1-1/2 qt Bugaboo™ holds well over 2 qt. Some pots are deeper than normal. To be sure, measure your cooking pot's diameter one inch from the bottom of the pot.
