Overview

Spending a few days in the great outdoors can be refreshing. But it comes with one big challenge: food. Chances are, you can’t have steaks and burgers delivered to your campsite, so you’ll need to find a way to make the food you want yourself.

There are numerous factors to consider when you’re shopping for a camping stove. One of the most important is your fuel source. Choose this based on the type of camping and camp cooking you’re going to do.

“Your options are canister stoves, liquid fuel stoves (i.e. gas) or alternative fuel stoves,” says outdoor and camping expert Shawna Newman, editor-in-chief of Active Weekender. “Canister stoves are great if you’re concerned about weight. Liquid fuel stoves are ideal if you know you’re going to be on uneven ground and need the most stable type of camp stove. Alternative fuel stoves, like wood-burning and tablet stoves, are not great for traditional camping because they don’t perform as well.”

Many camping stoves run on propane, which is a handy option. Butane can be another option, but it doesn’t do as well in cold weather, so make sure you have a backup option if you’re planning to use it during the winter months.

Portability is a top consideration in any camping stove. If you’re hiking, you’ll need a stove that will fit snugly into your pack, while campers can get away with something a little bigger, as long as it can slide into the back of your vehicle. Keep in mind how you’ll be using it and whether you can sacrifice cooking surface area for a smaller, easier-to-carry unit.

Cooking capacity is very important when you’re in the market for a new camping stove. Some more portable stoves are designed to cook for one, which may mean you’ll be able to make your morning coffee and meals just for you on it, but if you’re cooking for more people, a camping stove with more capacity may be in order. Canister stoves can’t support the weight of larger pots, so you may want to use a liquid fuel stove if you have more people to cook for.

If you don’t feel like traveling with matches, you may want to consider a cooking stove that ignites automatically. While camping stoves have traditionally required a little extra help to start up, some newer models have auto-ignition. If this is important to you, factor that into your decision.

Safety is always important when you’re dealing with a cooking appliance. Since cooking stoves typically rely on disposable propane bottles, it’s important to carefully check for propane leaks before you start your stove up. This will help keep you and your fellow campers safe.

Ultimately, though, camp stoves can offer added convenience and safety compared with other options and can be a great choice for families.

“Cooking over a campfire can be done, but it’s not the best way to serve up a tasty camp meal,” Newman explains. “It can even be dangerous if you’re camping with children. Bringing along a camp stove means that you can eat just as well at the campsite as you do at home.”

Just be sure to follow both the stove instructions as well as any rules that apply to your campsite.

“Remember to never use your camp stove in the tent or any other enclosed space, because it’s a fire risk, and you also risk carbon monoxide poisoning,” Newman says.
