This blog had its first post in October 2007 and since then the number of posts has gradually built up till its 100th post today. To commemorate the 100 th post I thought I would offer a little competition based around stoves.

The challenge is to identify the 18 different stoves, (including manufacturers name) shown in the photos, some tips

1. All stoves were purchased commercially, no homemade stoves.
2. Some were purchased up to 5 years ago in the USA.
3. Some stoves are no longer commercially available.
4. Note that some stoves are repeated (for aesthetical reasons)

I will leave the competition running for about 2 weeks, at which time the entry with the most correct answers will receive an alcohol stove (one of those pictured) which I believe is currently not available in Europe. If there is more than one correct entry a random number generator will be used to determine the winner.

Entry can be submitted via the comments section,
