You are not going to keep it any simpler than a box with no parts to wear, no fire to start and no wood to gather, at least for sunny days.
By massive I meant the mass of the stove which takes a relatively fair amount of heat to cook the meal and after the meal is done it is left radiating
heat into an already hot environment.
I also know how to make and use a bow drill but that is NOT easier and neither is rubbing two sticks together.
Actually that was my point. You opted for the more modern technology because of it's ease of use.
I'm not saying don't carry flint and steel. I'm saying that you should carry it as well as a magnifying glass. On sunny days you could start a fire
without wear and tear on your flint and steel.
At home you could have a solar oven for sunny days so that the woodpile lasts longer.
