FAQ

  1. Alcohol burners. The most classic and also the cheapest option. This type of outdoor kitchen is used with special alcohol fuel.
  2. Gas burner. A slightly more expensive option, but one that is easiest to regulate the heat with.
  3. Multi-burner. A variety that has become more popular in recent years and slightly more expensive than alcohol burners. These can be used with both propane, diesel and kerosene, and in many cases, gas.

It depends on how it is intended to be used and what requirements you have for your kitchen. There are many different models in various sizes and with multiple features. If you have a lower budget, a classic alcohol burner is a good option, and if you want to be able to control the heat a lot, a gas burner is the best choice. If you want to be able to cook food at low temperatures, you should opt-out of the multi-burner, as there is a risk that it is too effective for it. However, if you are on a long expedition and want to be sure to find fuel, the multi-burner is good to have.

Portable stoves are made for outdoor use and are not optimal to use indoors. If you still want to use it indoors, it is important that you place it on a fireproof surface, make sure to have good ventilation, and you always keep it under supervision.

3 tips when buying a camping stove

When it comes to camping stoves, each fuel has its pros and cons. Consider when you plan on using your stove:

  • Summer: A gas burner stove is suitable for warmer conditions. For colder temperatures, opt for LPG variants that can withstand temperatures down to -22°C.

  • Winter: Petrol, white spirit and kerosene aren’t affected by cold and bad weather, making them a good choice if you want to use your camping stove in winter.

  • All year round: A multi-fuel stove is ideal when you want to cook outdoors all year round. They're also suitable for crisis boxes if you're interested in prepping.

Spirits such as white spirit are an affordable and easy fuel to use. One litre usually lasts for a week for two people. The downside is soot, so you’ll have to clean the stove after each use. LPG is a cleaner fuel option that heats up quickly. It’s a little more expensive and takes up more space, as you need to take bottles with you.

There are also stoves that use wood, sticks and pine cones. You don’t have to worry about fuel, as you can fetch it directly from nature. But it takes longer to start the fire, and wet tinder can be challenging to light.

When you're hiking and only have freeze-dried food, you can go for a gas stove as you only need to heat water. But if you want to cook proper meals for several people, a camping stove may be a better choice. You can cook the food in a pot or a pan.

When you’re going on an adventure, you don’t want to be weighed down by heavy gear, especially on longer hikes. Choose a stove that is as lightweight as possible, while still being able to cook the food you need.

For long hikes, gas stoves are often the best choice, as they are small and easy to carry. They usually hold a pan of around one litre, which is enough if you're hiking alone or with one other person. But there are also models that can hold up to three litres, making them ideal for groups of 2-6 people.

If you're planning a hike and need some food inspiration, we've got you covered. Here are some proven tips to help keep your energy levels up and your mood high during your adventure.
