For those looking for an alternative to the Litle Cra cker, I suggest a visit to

This NZ company makes a compact chip heater / cooktop woodburning stove space saving version which complies fully with clean air regs and can have a wetback fitted. it also retails for about $250 less than he best price I can find on the Little Cracker.

As much as I like the Little Cracker, I think the Kaitaia made waegener is hard to beat.
