Critter CR2 Multifuel Stove Stand on Kickstarter

Critter CR2 Stove Stand

I thought I’d share with all of you (another) pretty cool Kickstarter project that I recently backed. The Critter CR2 is a pocket-sized folding stove stand that is designed to be compatible with the majority of ultralight stoves that folks like us carry, such as soda can alcohol stoves, trangia stoves, and even sterno for car campers. It can also be used just as easily with a wood fire.

I was fortunate to be given the opportunity to test one of the stainless steel versions of the Critter CR2 for the past few weeks and have taken it with me on several short trips. The stainless steel CR2 weighs 1.8 oz and folds up small enough to fit into a pocket. It creates a very wide and stable platform that can support a lot of weight for large pots and group meals. Thanks to the top prongs, it can also easily support small single person cups like my favorite Snow Peak 600.

If you’re looking for a high quality and robust stove stand to compliment your cooking kit, definitely check out the Critter Cr2 on Kickstarter. There are only a few days left to become a backer of this project and help take it into full production.

Titanium Version and Special Giveaway!

I was originally a backer of the stainless steel version of the Critter Cr2, however the creator recently added a 1 oz titanium CR2 option to the Kickstarter campaign for just $10 dollars more that the stainless steel version. I adjusted my funding amount for the titanium version and I’m pretty excited about it.

So here’s the deal — if the Critter CR2 Kickstarter campaign is successful, I’ll give away the sample CR2 that I have been using to one lucky reader of this blog who leaves a comment below. Share this with your friends so that they can enter too. Now let’s get this funded!

    This looks very promising, at 1oz, pretty hard to not find a place to put in your pack, even if it is a backup. Will have to try in the areas we backpack that allow fires.

    I like the simple design and compact size of this stove stand.

    There are a number of different pot stands out there but for the weight and size this one looks to be pretty nice. The alternative stoves are pretty popular in the community and would think this solves a big pain for a lot of people. A pot stand that is super light and fits with the super light alcohol stoves.

    Never hurts to have a good stove stand. The serrations look good, like they’d really provide good pot stabilty.

  • Evan

    this is great, I could really use one! I wonder, would it be able to keep an esbit cube off the ground?

  • Karen

    Nice stand and I like that it accommodates the cup as well as a pan or pot.

  • Andi Johnson

    I’m so glad I stumbled across your blog. I’m getting ready to backpack the lost coast with three of my girlfriends this summer. We’re revamping out gear and we’re all super interested in minimalist and ultralight gear.
