Camping Stoves: A Guide to Choosing the Right One



Any hungry hiker will understand the importance of a reliable camping stove. This vital piece of equipment will keep you going on multi-day hikes or simply provide you with the joy of a summit cuppa on a cold alpine day. But which of the several varieties of camping stoves would best fit your adventurous spirit? In this article, we’ll go over the main components that make a good camping stove, such as weight, packed size, and regulation, as well as the various models available, the trips and times of year they’re best suited to, and the various advantages and disadvantages they have when compared to one another.

Firstly, let’s look at the main features and components that make a good all-round camping stove.

What to look for in a camping stove


As with any equipment, effectiveness must be weighed against weight concerns. Stove systems are at the heavier end of the range, although more minimalist canister stoves, alcohol, or solid-fuel tablet stoves can provide a lightweight camp cooking alternative.

Packed size

Similarly, the size of your selected camping stove should be assessed with your other equipment. If you want to use your camping stove on multi-day journeys, be sure the burner, pans, and fuel all fit inside a backpacking backpack. If you’re only cooking for one person on a backpacking trip, you can keep things small. If you’re going hillwalking for the day, you might want to consider a bigger choice, but you’ll welcome the extra space in your daypack for layers, a map and compass, food, and water.


Of course, camp cooking can be risky, particularly during the dry season. It’s also frustrating to make supper just to lose everything due to an unsteady setup. Stoves, such as remote canister stoves, are the most stable due to their low length and proximity to the ground. Some taller types, such as integrated stove systems, have stabilizing post supports, however, these are frequently offered separately. They also add weight to your entire system.

Boil time

Some campers like waiting for their water to boil so they can rehydrate their meal. Others desire instant pleasure while waiting for their coffee in the morning. It is a question of personal choice. However, if you want a speedy and efficient boil time, search for a burner power output wattage ranging from 2,000 to 4,000

Burner head

The diameter of your burner head impacts the success of your camping meals. Gas stoves with smaller burner heads can create burn zones, or hot areas, on cooking pans. Others are wider to reduce this, but do not cook the contents of tall pots as rapidly. A modest diameter should enough for boiling water, but for cooking solid items, a broader head may be required to prevent your noodles from crisping to the bottom of the pot.

Flame regulation

A flame regulator will be useful for any camp cooking that is not limited to boiling water. The good news is that most modern camp stoves include a control valve that allows you to alter the intensity of the flame.

Wind Protection

Almost every camper has experienced the way winds and gusts can pick up in high areas. So, you’ll need to invest in wind protection for your camping stove or risk losing its efficiency. Windshields improve efficiency by protecting against the weather and acting as a heat reflector. These can be incorporated or constructed from thin aluminum sheets.
