    Default What stove fits the Oil Camp XTS HE Pot?

    Most stoves' fins are not wide enough to accomodate this pot. Thanks, Bill

    The Soto Windmaster with the 4 Flex stand will hold it. That combination is also very fuel efficient and boils water almost as fast as a Jetboil set-up will.

    Note: if you buy the Windmaster, make sure you get the 4 Flex option. Otherwise you get the standard 3 prong stand which is smaller.

    Did you get a Soto Windmaster and how did it work for the fit?

    These Olicamp XTS pots work much better with the pocket rocket style stoves that shoot their flames straight up than they do with other stoves that shoot the flames outward.

    My gigapower stove fits nice and easy under the xts, but because the gigapower's flames shoot outward, it is no faster at boiling water in the xts than it is in my regular titanium pot.

    I have a walmart folding stove with igniter that works on the XTS - though I must be careful because it is a bit small and it needs to be carefully centered - but it boils water much faster than my gigapower under any other pot I have. .

    I know this is an old thread but I just got back from another section, and I don't want to do another with my little walmart stove. The legs are flimsy and a small diameter.

    The XTS pot is about 4.5" diameter.

    I like the looks of the Jetboil MightyMo stove, but I can't find any information on the diameter of the pot support/ legs. Does anyone know?

    I like the fit of the pocket rocket 2, but I want a built-in igniter.

    The Soto Amicus has a pot stand diameter of 4.3", has an igniter, 2.9 oz

    The Soto Windmaster has a pot stand diameter of 5.7", has an igniter, 3.1 oz

    FireMaple Hornet II: pot stand diameter of 4.8", no igniter, 1.7 oz
    Any others? What is your favorite stove with the XTS pot?

    Fwiw, I have used my olicamp xts with an eCHS alcohol stove with great success. The pot stand is a Aluminum flashing cylinder with air intake holes on the bottom but no vents on the top, so all the heat goes through the heat exchangers. The pot stand this doubles as a wind screen. This makes it super powerful AND efficient, even in cold and wind, a rare combo for alcohol systems. So little heat escapes, I can keep my pot cozy on when boiling. A bit like an alcohol jet boil system.
