For the thirteenth day of my 25 Undead Christmas presents I want an Optimus Single Burner Hiking Stove.
Its, small, light, and can burn anything from white gas, kerosene, diesel, to jet fuel so it will be relatively easy to get a ready fuel supply for some time.
Psychologically there is something very important about having a hot meal, especially when it starts to get colder. Take the lid off your can of soup and pop it right on top of the burner, and in under four minutes you will be eating hot food.
Not to mention this stove is very useful tool for when you can’t risk a fire because it will draw too much attention or simply can’t safely start one. People think of these units as camp stoves, but I really think they should be called “Urban Zombie Survival Cooking Utility Stoves” (and yes I am claiming copyright on that). What else are you going to do when you are stuck in the city, hopping from room to room looking for supplies. You can’t build a fire on the thirtieth floor of a high rise to cook, but with this single burner stove your worries are over – well, except for the thralls that is.
