Simply snap on the Siege Stove universal Cross-Members, and you will have a super high-performance wood-burning and multi-fuel stove, which in Be Ready magazine's review outperformed all the high priced camp stoves it was compared to, by a wide margin.

For all the IKEA camp stove enthusiasts, there is now a much simpler, easier and more stable means of converting an IKEA canister into a stove — no more cutting a big hole in the side of the can to make a way for air to flow out (the Cross-members lift the pot or pan up, so that air can flow out the top of the can), and no more bolting on heavy, unstable legs to lift the canister off the ground. Plus, it disassembles in seconds!

NEW! We recently received a shipment of UNIVERSAL CROSS-MEMBERS.
These have been designed to perfectly fit the IKEA® canisters, plus almost every common food and coffee can, and even paint cans, plus the Siege Collapsible Stove.
With these new ultra-versatile Universal Cross-Members you will have the ultimate in camping and survival gear.

For as little as $22 (sale price $19.99) plus the few dollars that an IKEA® can costs, you can have a phenomenal camp stove.
Compare this to other portable cooking systems, many of which can't come close to the versatility, durability
and cooking capability of these stoves, and most of which sell for several times the price of the Siege Stove!
The combination of price and performance in a compact portable stove is unbeatable.

Add our unique hanging toasters and compact grills and your IKEA hobo can stove will be all tricked out,
and you will have a really awesome camping and survival cooking setup.

IKEA® cutlery drainers and utensil holders are popular items for do-it-yourselfers to make their own hobo stoves.
With our Universal Cross-Members you no longer need to cut up your nice IKEA® canister!
Simply snap the upper cross-members to the top and tap the lower cross-members into the canister floor.

IKEA® utensil caddys / drainers and kitchen utensil racks make beautiful and very inexpensive hobo stoves. The downside is that they weren't designed to be stoves, so you need a way to elevate them above the ground for ventilation and and also elevate the pot or pan so that air can flow out the top of the can. The new Universal Siege Stove cross-members accomplish both of these things as well as providing greater stability for the stove and for the pot or pan. In addition, with the cross-members you no longer need to cut up your attractive Ikea can to create an air vent or flue at the top! And you don't have to balance the can on rocks or create some other kind of support underneath to allow for air flow through the bottom. You will also have a set of durable, versatile cross-members that can be used with a wide range of food and coffee cans. Together they make a fantastic combination!

For those who want to make the BEST IKEA HOBO STOVE IMAGINABLE, the Siege Stove Cross-Members are the perfect solution. Follow these simple steps to create your own IKEA hobo can stove:

  1. You will need a set of Universal Siege Stove Cross-Members. These cross-members make a fantastic survival tool as they are also compatible with a wide variety of food can sizes as well as our collapsible flat stove.
  2. The first time you use an IKEA can, position and gently tap the lower cross-members into the bottom of the canister using a small rock. First align the center "bullet" with the center hole of the IKEA canister underside. The fangs ("curved spikes") line up with the existing holes and will cut their own notches that extend inward a small amount from these holes. No tools are required! After that first time, the notches will already be in the can, so you can simply press the lower cross-members on. The upper cross-members are just a press-fit on top.  To get them off, you can grip and rip them off, or tap the protruding ends with a small branch.
  3. IKEA Air holes:  There are more air holes in the IKEA canister than in the cans that we supply. Additionally the air holes are larger and they go higher up the sides. Because of the larger holes, and the fact they are go up higher, if there is a breeze the flames tends to lap out around the canister which if you are not careful could heat up the handle, and if it is a Bakelite handle burn it. More air only means the fire burns a bit hotter (consumes the wood faster). While the IKEA is stainless steel, regular cans will last a long time if they are not left outside in the rain to rust. Cans are plentiful, and cans are free (if you like eating the food within.)
