In the aftermath of a natural disaster such as an earthquake or tornado, there will probably be a lot of biomass and wood debris laying around. Suppose you  have to boil water or cook, using whatever materials are available.

It is sturdy, so the top  will hold heavy pots and pans easily. It is also very fuel efficient, and works under a variety of challenging circumstances.
