big surprise,I win an alcohol can stove on Internet

I got a surprise email notifying me I had won an online contest on one of the channels i subscribe to. It is the first thing I have ever won on the Internet that was not a Nigerian scam. The site is called and is run by a grandmother that is teaching her grandson to make the alcohol can stoves and accessories and sell them on the Internet. I am a big fan of backyard, garage type DIY cottage industries, having made and sold my own items for a long time on the internet. I think it is great to have parents and grandparents teach them life skills they will learn from running a small business and creating and improvising new products to meet customer demands, I did not review the alcohol stove that came, in fact, I added alcohol to it and did not light it successfully. This is the model called the Nitro. I asked the seller to make a video showing how to get it lit and running and they said they would. I am sure there is nothing wrong with it and i was not lighting or using it correctly. The item came packed extremely well and weighs almost nothing. It is possible I had difficulty lighting it as I did not use a windscreen although I was in the kitchen at the time. I do not have experience with can style alcohol stoves so please do not judge the stove by my results. I think that is another advantage of dealing with small owner based businesses is that if there is ever a problem you can talk to the guy at the top very easily. There are a lot of items on their website that they make by hand individually. I hope you found this video useful and you show support to makers and sellers of self made items.
