Siege Stoves are precision made in the USA



After you complete your product selection, select your destination country and PayPal will add the First Class Mail cost based on total weight.
     We keep our packaging to a minimum in order to provide low shipping costs. If you need any assistance, please email us with the details of what you plan to order and the destination address, and we will calculate the Mail fee and email you a PayPal invoice for the total amount, that you can click on to pay at your convenience.

Note: Just like any other online store, we do not pay customs fees. This is not practical and we would have to increase our prices, as we would need to work out duties for the specific country based on each order, and file additional paperwork with payments, etc. In addition, while there is no guarantee your package will make it through without customs fees, in our experience the majority of international Siege Stove orders clear customs without any fees, so you are better off taking your chances. Just recently 3 out of 11 packages we sent to the UK were charged duties, which is more than usual, but still a minority. Canada also seems to charge duties a bit more often than most countries. Most packages appear to sail right through to countries across Europe, Australia, New Zealand, etc. We can't be certain yours will not be charged, but the odds would appear in your favor. Even if you are charged duties, remember that a biofuel Siege Stove is not a big expense and may be one of the best investments you can make, as it will quickly pay for itself in fuel cost savings, and will not wear out or break, unlike most consumer products. In addition, a growing number of our users are regularly cooking their breakfasts on their Siege Stove in their backyards and on their decks, saving money on home gas and electric bills. The wood ash produced is also great for reminieralizing garden soil. You too can join the Backyard Siege movement, saving money and ejoying the outdoors!

Because our cross-members and accessories are compact and lightweight, our international customers are often able to achieve lower shipping costs than with many other portable camp stoves (on top of what you are already saving with our low prices). For example, a single set of stainless steel Cross-Members or two sets of titanium Cross-Members can be packaged and shipped just under 8.1 ounces, in the lowest postal weight bracket!

For international customers we recommend that you obtain a can locally, which will save a lot on shipping costs (adding the can requires a box, which adds considerable weight and bulk). The popular stainless steel IKEA® cansiter is available in many countries, but you can use many other cans too. A drill with a tapered drill bit will make neat round holes, and you can also use the cross-members to make holes in a can.

Note: There will be a brief shipping delay this week, as we finally take a few days off before summer is over!
All orders placed this week should ship by the end of the week.


Titanium and steel prices have gone up considerably since last year (Ti up 50%). We have also added more detail to some items, especially the new Flat-Pack Stove Mark III edition, which has increased our laser fabrication costs. So far we have held our prices at or close to what they were a year ago, but will need to adapt to the supply conditions if material costs continue to rise (as they appear to be doing). So, if you are looking to get a camping or survival stove kit, it may make sense to order sooner than later.

In addition, we are able to offer our products at these low prices because we are currently only selling direct to customers through our web site.
We expect the MSRP on the Cross-Member sets will be higher if we go retail, since the retailers will need to mark the prices up and will
expect us to also sell at the same prices they sell them for.

(Available in stainless steel or titanium)

If you were to order just one item, the Cross-Members would be it! With a single set of cross-members you can quickly turn a can into a complete stove that is sturdy, stable and has plenty of capacity to hold a substantial fire.

The Siege Cross-Members make a fantastic gift and combined with a super-low-cost can outperform stoves costing much more. As one of our recent customers just reported, "The supports really work great on a #10 can. It works and burns way better than my new $150.00 [other brand] stove"
And in Be Ready magazine's comparison of 10 popular portable camp stoves, most costing far more, the Siege Stove (using an IKEA canister) had the fastest boil time (4 minutes). The next closest stove took 5 minutes, with others taking 8 and even 12 minutes to boil.

Specifications: To create a complete stove you will need one of the following:
  • Titanium: 3.5oz | 99g
  • Stainless Steel: 7.6oz | 217g
  • Length: 7" (17.7cm)
  • a Siege Flat-Pack Stove
  • a Pre-Punched Can (coffee, #10, etc.)
  • an IKEA Canister.

Note to international customers:

Our lightweight stainless steel Cross-Members are able to be shipped in the lowest cost postal weight bracket (under 8.1 ounces). Also, because the titanium Cross-Members are half the weight of the stainless steel sets, we are able to ship two of the Ti sets in one package for the same low rate. The second Ti set will make a great gift, or a backup for storing in your car, or you can split the shipping cost with a friend. In order to keep the package weight under 8.1 oz, and still give you a bonus P-38 with each set of Cross-Members, we will include minimal or no literature (we will email you all the documents and instructions you need), and do not include the simple cotton pouch (something we recently started including for heavier than 8.1 oz international orders). This saves our customers over $10 in shipping costs.

Note: The next postal weight bracket is from 8.1 oz all the way to 32 oz, so it can make sense to add more items if you are already over 8.1 ounces, to make the most of the weight allowance.


Our crowdfunding campaign depleted our inventory,
but we still have some left!

Siege Cross-Members - stainless steel
(set of 4 parts): $21.99 US

Siege Cross-Members -titanium
(set of 4 parts): $31.99 US


P-38 can opener with Siege Stove universal Cross-Members make a must-have EDC survival tool combination.
The venerable P-38 makes a perfect complement to the Cross-Members, for an all-in-one survival system. Clip them together and stow them in your car, emergency gear or camping kit, and you will be able to open a can, empty the contents into a mug, pot or pan, and quickly turn the can into a stove using the Cross-Members.

The Universal Cross-Members are large enough to reliably support a Dutch oven! The height that they hold the pot above the rim of the can, provides optimal breathing for the fire, and makes it easy to add wood scraps when there is a pot on top. Plus with the new high-tech structural design they are lighter in weight, more compact, and they work with all of the cans, as well as the collapsible Flat-Pack stove, plus the IKEA Stainless Steel Canisters.

We also redesigned and sharpened the two fangs on of one of the lower Universal cross-members so that they can be used to make air holes in a can (using a branch, tap one fang into the side or base of the can, twist to widen and repeat until the can is sufficiently ventilated). With this all-in-one survival tool it is now possible to create a stove with just the cross-members and a can!

Siege Stove Cross-Members in a Nylon sleeve

(Cross-Members sold separately)

Standard Sheath for Cross-Members

Polypropylene webbing with Velcro® closure
(limited supply)

Standard Sheath: $4.99

Standard Sheath for holding a set of Cross-Members (polypropylene webbing with Velcro closure flap)

About the maker:

An older Air Force veteran who makes boat covers for a living produces the sheaths for us. He is a big Siege Stove fan, and found us when searching for a rugged, versatile biomass stove that would meet the stringent needs of his active outdoor lifestyle. Unfortunately he is having a tough year, with some ongoing health issues, followed by a recent accidental tearing of his shoulder muscles, leaving him unable to work. More recently he was knocked over by a hit-and-run drive while pushing a shopping cart in a parking lot, and was taken to hospital a bit banged up. Fortunately he is a really tough guy who is accustomed to carrying a heavy backpack long distances, and surviving many days in the woods of Northern Illinois (with his Siege Stove). Even so, his recovery will likely take some time. We therefore have a limited number of sheaths in stock, and do not know if and when he will be able to make more for us.

New Feature: We added a second brass grommet hole, so that you can thread paracord through the two holes and attach the sleeve to a backpack or Molle webbing.

Rear View of Enhanced Sheath
(the included fire steel is not depicted in this photo)

(Cross-Members sold separately)
The dog tag and P-38 can be inserted into the sleeve, or left on the outside.

Note: When you purchase a set of Cross-Members, we give you a P-38 with them too! The extra one can be kept on a keychain as a backup, or given as a gift.

Enhanced Sheath for Cross-Members

Polypropylene webbing with Velcro® closure
(limited supply).

In our workshop we take the standard sheaths that the Air Force vet makes for us and upgrade them, with grommet holes and accessories. Each Enhahced Sheath includes:

  • Top-rated 3"x 3/16" Fire Steel
  • Two brass grommet holes
  • Brass beaded 4.5" chain
  • Brass dog tag - just an extra fun item. They are blank so you can etch your name on it, if you like :)
  • P-38 mini can opener

Enhanced Sheath: $10.99

Limited time bonus (while supplies last):

We just started giving away a titanium scraper with every Enhanced Sheath. We usually recommend using the back of a knife to scape the fire steel, but now you can use this titanium scraper instead. We cut them from the scrap titanium left over from cutting our titanium Cross-Members. We then round off and sand the ends, but otherwise keep them rough (surface sanding them would bevel the edges, making them unable to produce sparks). These scrapers may not hold an edge as long as hardened steel, but so far in our testing they have held up after several weeks of daily use, plus they are free!

Note: The fire steel and scraper included with the Enhanced Sheath should be your backup. One should always have multiple means of making fire, including waterproof matches, Bic lighters, and a primary fire steel.

That's not all! We significantly reduced the weight of our titanium and Stainless Steel cross-members and collapsible stoves by testing and obtaining optimal material thicknesses.

With two interlocking cans you can even convert your stove into a wood-gas stove!

Siege Stove Collapsible flat-pack stove

The Siege Collapsible Flat-Pack Stove is sold below as a kit with Cross-Members included and also separately, as an upgrade for current owners of Cross-Members.

(Includes Cross-Members)

(Available in stainless steel or titanium)
(set of 5 parts, plus Cross-Members are included):

In conjunction with Cross-Members, the plates quickly assemble into a trapezoidal fire container with considerable fuel capacity and broad heat output -- perfect for grilling and for even heat distribution under a pot or pan).

This is a great choice for those who want the best or need something that stores flat for a really compact kit.

The Titanium Siege Flat-Pack Stoves use .028” thick Titanium. In our tests we found that the thinner .020" grade commonly used in wood stoves to reduce cost, warped unacceptably. Even .024" was unsatisfactory, so we went with 0.028". The Cross-Members use an even thicker grade of Titanium - almost twice as thick. Siege Stoves are made tough in the USA, from American-produced aerospace-grade Titanium or 304 Stainless Steel. We do not use imported "titanium", which may have had its titanium content diluted to cut costs (mystery metal!).
Siege Stoves are impervious to rust and wood flames. They should last as long as the great pyramids!

We are currently offering these complete kits at a big discount:
a set of Universal Cross-Members is included free with the kit.
We also include a complimentary P-38 micro can opener with each set.

(while supplies last):

Why the clearance sale? We are introducing a new Mark III version of the Flat-Pack Stove (see below), and need to sell our current stock of Mark II Flat-Pack stoves. The two versions have the same basic structure (same size and fuel capacity). The primary differences are that the Mark III has:

  1. Hexagonal hole design with crenellations along the top edge (a cosmetic upgrade, to match the new Folding Grills).
  2. Slots in the walls for mounting Side Toasters.
  3. Ability to orient the base Cross-Members so that they connect at the corners of the stove instead of at the center of each wall. The corner mounting means wider-set support, but either stove model will easily support heavy pots and iron skillets.

If you are not planning to add Side Toasters, then the Mark II version is an ideal choice. Note: You can still add Side Toasters, but will need to mount them on the base Cross-Members (they slot under the stove, instead of into wall slots, as with the Mark III). Note also that we provide the same latest versions of the Cross-Members for both stoves.

Siege Collapsible Stove packs flat. Aerospace-grade titanium.

Requires a set of titanium or stainless steel Universal Cross-Members.

If you plan to be on or around water a lot, then the Siege Collapsible Stove is an ideal choice. Cans will corrode over time with exposure to salt water, but the Siege Collapsible Stove will not (note: the IKEA canister, is also stainless and should resist corrosion).

While the Titanium stove is lighter for long distance backpacking, the Stainless Stove is excellent for everything else including: canoeing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, horseback trips, car, motorcycle, & RV travel, and emergency survival situations for cooking at the house or homestead. It also works great for those hardy souls who don't mind packing a little extra weight. Both Stainless Steel and Titanium are impervious to salt water.

(while supplies last)

We are selling these at a discount to make way for the new Mark III version of our Flat-Pack Stove.

These Mark II stoves have a much improved extra-strong connection system over the Mark I: you can even grip the stove by any of the four walls and shake it, and the walls will not come apart!

NEW FEATURES of the Mark III Flat-Pack Stove

  • Slots in walls for Side Toasters (toasters sold separately, below): this provides more secure mounting of the toasters and they can be slid in or out to the distance desired for optimal toasting.(the Side Toasters will also with with the previous Mark II edition of the Flat-Pack Stove, but need to be mounted on the base Cross-Members under the stove)
  • Ability to mount the stove diagonally on the base Cross-Members, so that they connect at the corners of the stove, for further enhanced stove stability.
  • Hexagonal hole design (matches the design of the Folding Grills)
  • Crenellated upper edge: The castellations can be useful for preventing skewers from rolling off when placed across the top of the stove (with top Cross-Members removed) for grilling kebabs (once the fire has simmered down to glowing coals).

For our Kickstarter campaign we introduced all new laser-cut FOLDING GRILLS (Compact & Large) as well as new flat-pack SIDE TOASTERS

These are now available for the first time on our web site




For Siege Flat-Pack Stoves:

Mark II Flat-Pack Stove: Side Toasters mount on the base Cross-Members and with the prongs set under the stove.

Mark III Flat-Pack Stove (depicted above): Side Toasters slide into the slots in the walls for more secure mounting of the toasters.

For Canister Stoves (IKEA canisters, coffee cans, #10 cans, etc.):

Side Toasters mount on the base Cross-Members and slot under the can. Alternatively, you can make slots in the can wall for more secure mounting of the toasters


(laser-cut 304 stainless steel)

With our new flat-pack Side Toasters, you can cook on top of your stove, while toasting bread on the side!

These work with any Siege Stove
(canister stoves or Flat-Pack, titanium or stainless).
They come as a pair, but you can put a second pair on your stove (up to 4 toasters around the stove)

Pair of Side Toasters: $10.99
(2 toasters, 2 parts each, stainless steel)

The Compact and Large Folding Grills work with canister stoves and the Siege Flat-Pack Stove.

The handles swing inboard and tighten in place for compact storage.

Precision laser cut from high quality 304 stainless steel.

We modify flatware knives to produce the handles. Note: There don't appear to be any US-manufacturers of low-cost flatware, so these are one component we use that is not US-produced. They are extensively modified in our workshop, which takes a while (cutting, shaping and sanding each end, plus drilling and sanding holes for the bolts).



  • Approx Weight: 7.7 oz | 218 g
  • Approx. Dimensions: 5.1” | 130mm square

Compact Folding Grill: $15.99
(stainless steel)



  • Approx Weight: 13 oz |
  • Approx. Dimensions: 7.1” | 180mm square

Large Folding Grill: $21.99
(stainless steel)

Note: In the photo on the left we used the same length handles for both the Compact and Large Grills. However, the Large Grills have room for a longer handle to fold away, so we now have longer handles on these, for added reach and improved grip.

IKEA canister for creating a hobo stove

IKEA Canister: $5.49
(stainless steel)

If you have a local IKEA® store you can purchase these directly from IKEA or you can get them from us. We buy these retail and provide them here as a convenience - our price is higher since we have to cover our transport costs, but adding them into your order won't increase your shipping cost if you are in the US, since we charge a flat shipping fee regardless of order size). For orders outside the USA, we recommend that you obtain a canister locally, which will save you on international shipping costs.

  • Diameter: 4” | 102mm
  • Height: 5.44" | 120mm
Compact Can Hobo  Stove for use with Siege Stove universal Cross-Members

This size is a good choice for individuals up to small groups

While it is relatively easy to punch holes in cans that you buy in the supermarket, some customers who are really busy appreciate that they can buy perforated cans from Siege Stoves and use their own time to greater advantage.

The pre-punched cans may cost as much as a can full of food, but we have to cover the purchase and transport costs for obtaining the empty cans as well as the labor costs to punch them. The three machines that are necessary to punch the holes at our factory, are quite expensive and require maintenance as well.



Compact Can: $4.29
(pre-punched, tin-plated steel)

Pre-punched LARGE #10 CAN
(recycled restaurant size)

Requires a set titanium or stainless steel
  • Approx. Weight: 8.8oz | 250g
  • Diameter: 6.19” | 157 mm
  • Height: 7" | 178 mm
Jumbo #10 can Hobo  stove for use with Siege Stove universal Cross-Members

This size is ideal for familes and groups, but even an invididual will enjoy the big fire and extra large fuel capacity, especially considering how exceptionally light it is.

  • WOOD SCRAPS (BIO-FUEL): Thicker material will burn for longer, and is better for grilling than thinner twigs. A set of loppers is a handy item to have for cutting short sticks of about thumb-thickness. Wood scraps are free and widely available in most places (not much is needed), so you don't need to carry it with you. Sitting around a wood-burning stove is also the most pleasurable experience.
  • CHARCOAL: Widely available. One negative: it’s dirty to handle, but the positives are:  it creates minimal smoke, minimal flame, and is less than 1/2 the weight of wood. In Siege Stoves, irregular chunks are better than briquettes.
  • LIQUID FUELS: An alcohol stove can be placed inside a Siege Stove (can be supported at an optimal height on a pair of tent pegs that are threaded horizontally through holes in the wall of the stove). Most liquid fuels are very toxic to breathe. Pure cane alcohol such as Everclear is a healthier choice, but is difficult to get in many states, because of state laws banning high-proof alcohol.
  • SOLID FUEL: Hexamine tablets, such as Esbit can also be supported in a Siege Stove on a small tray. These also produce toxic fumes.
  • GAS: A gas stove can be placed inside a Siege Stove. You will need to select a can that is large enough. A feeder tube can be threaded through a hole you make in the side of the can.

Siege Stoves are made in the USA!


  1. These stoves are not for use by children. As is common sense with any fire source, responsible older children can use a camp stove (many Scouts do!),
    but must be closely supervised at all times by an adult. Needless to say, fire tends to be a hot thing!
  2. The stove will remain hot for some period of time after the fire is out — give it time to cool down before handling it.
  3. Do not move a stove that is hot or has fire in it. To move a Siege Stove after it has cooled down, carefully grip the two ends of the lowest cross-member underneath (the one with the notches at each end).
  4. Siege Stoves are not for use indoors or in confined, poorly ventilated areas. Avoid breathing smoke from fires.
  5. A small minority of cans are galvanized inside (e.g. tall pinapple tins). This coating can be identified by its mottled metallic appearance inside the can. Zinc oxide fumes produced from heating galvanized metal are toxic to breathe. In a well ventilated outdoor environment, fumes should mostly go up with the hot convection currents, but to be safe DO NOT USE GALVANIZED CANS. The vast majority of cans are not galvanized, so you should have little difficulty finding a suitable can.
    Many other cans have plastic linings, which will quickly burn off with the first use. Get a healthy fire going in the can, stand back and let it burn off for a few minutes. Don't use a can as a pot to cook food in — you will end up eating the melted plastic lining.
  6. Always place your stove on an even, level surface, such as a flat rock or bare dirt, well away from other flammable materials and dry grass or foliage. The bottom of the stove can get hot enough to burn wood, paper, weeds, etc. Don't place the stove on a high platform, and always give yourself enough clearance so that if you do knock your fire over, the hot coals can't fall on you, your companions, your children or your pets, or start a brush fire.
  7. Observe local park fire rules. Never leave a fire unattended. Make sure you completely extinguish all embers after you are finished, soak them, and bury them deep.
    There you have it. Place safety first, and have great fun with your Siege Stove!
