Spending time outdoors is a lot of work. Don’t get us wrong, it’s very fun and fulfilling too. But when you’re moving around a lot, you’re going to need some food to fuel you.

About camping stove

When you’re car camping, a camping stove is a no-brainer. It doesn’t take up a ton of space and it offers you endless opportunities for outdoor cooking. As long as you can boil water, you can cook many outdoor favourites like corn, beans, and rice. And don’t forget coffee.
Camping stoves are useful for backcountry camping too, though you may have to use them in designated food/picnic areas, so keep this in mind.
Most camping stoves run on a kind of liquefied gas like butane or propane. Butane and propane stoves are both cost-effective. They allow you to do most types of outdoor cooking and, depending on their size and power, are suitable even if you need to cook food for large groups.

Find the best camping stoves on the market

When you’re in the market for a camping stove, you should look for stoves that are stable enough to hold heavy-duty pots and pans. If you’re only planning to use your camping stove for light cooking, a small, portable stove is likely sufficient. A two burner stove is useful if you want to cook more than one thing at once.
If you’ll often be cooking for large groups, you’ll want to find a stove with a high heat output. This is generally anything over 20,000 BTU (British Thermal Units) per... burner. Discerning camp chefs will appreciate a camp stove with extra simmer control that reduces boil time and also allows them to switch to a low simmer if needed.
