    Hi, here are some photos of a well preserved Hipolito No.0. These are very well made 1-pint stoves, the graphic on the tin are great, and the trivet is a real bonus for Ibrik users:

    Hi, here are some more photos of the "new" Hipolito No.0, this time operating.
    These small Hipolitos always seem to work very well, and this one was no exception. Here we are making morning coffee, using a Cezve (Ibrik) purchased in Istanbul, and the classic Hipolito 0 trivet for small pans:

    Best Regards,

    Hi George a very nice example i agree hipalito are a well made stove infact they seem a little underrated it would give the 210 a good run for its money.
    i do like it when the tin like yours is in beautifull conditon realy sets the out fit off

    Interesting ti note on small hipolito stoves the extreme waisting of the riser ... making for a very weak component .. wonder why they made it this way ? Aesthetics ? OR a drastically reduced cross sectional area to restrict thermal conductivity from the burner to the tank ?
    Sad stovie :-)
    Nick
    p.s .. the riser from a Primus/Optimus 00 stove will fit , if (like me) you sheared the original riser whilst putting on new heatproof/face sealing washers .

    One of my absolute favorites, too! Great pix!

    The Hipo 0 together with tin wins the graphics contest amongst all brass classics, I think.

    Hi Nick, I now realise that my earlier photos did not clearly show the reduced diameter, or "waisted", section of the riser-tube of this Hipolito No.0.
    I took two extra shots this morning to rectify my omission:

    1280597351-St.333.-Hipo.-No.0-waisted-.jpg 1280597382-St.333.-Hipo.0-waisted-rise.jpg

    I believe that your suggestion that the purpose of the reduced diameter is to minimise conductive heat transfer to the tank, is very likely.
    Best Regards,
    George.
