College students, here's one way to get around the restrictions on hot plates and toaster ovens in your dorm rooms: get yourself a stove necklace! You've got to see this to believe it.
This tiny stove is made of brass and copper with its very own fuel tank. It burns alcohol, creating a very hot flame. It's hard to tell what exactly we'd be able to cook on such a small burner! At the very least, we could heat up a cup of water. We'd love to see an accompanying tiny skillet for cooking single eggs!
This necklace first caught our eye when it was featured on the Craftzine blog and the necklace itself was being sold on Smashing Darling. It looks like the necklace itself is now unfortunately out of stock, but there's contact info for the designer if you want to request a custom piece. Or you can try your own hand at making a tiny, portable stove!
Actually usable? Mmmm...Debatable. Awesome idea? Most definitely! What do you think of this miniature, portable stove?
