    After spending an exciting day adventuring along the trails or pioneering your way, you’ll be craving a nice warm meal when you and your crew return to camp. While a fire will undoubtedly cook your gluten-free recipes from your favourite camping cookbook or boil water in a camping kettle to make coffee outdoors, solar cooking can get the job done as long as the sun is out. The most effective and efficient method of cooking a warm meal in the wilderness is a camping stove


    How To Choose a Camping Stove?

    Cooking outdoors is an intrinsic part of the camping experience, and at Novapro Sports, we understand that you need to have the right stove to work with it. The right camping stove will make the difference, whether cooking up a storm at a campsite or rehydrating your food, similar to typical ovens. One way to think about camping stoves is to divide them between their fuel types.  That falls roughly into a range of three groups:

    Canister Stoves

    Canister stoves are the most commonly used for general camping and hiking. These run on a propane/butane single-use canister. However, for those venturing into more harsh or mountainous terrain, it's worth noting that canister performance can be susceptible to cold temps and altitude.


    Liquid Fuel Stoves

    The liquid fuel stove is the original backpacking option still in use, but its popularity is fading. Liquid fuel stoves are much heavier and bulkier than the canister option but are best for cold weather camping. 

    The most significant drawbacks most outdoor enthusiasts have experienced are leaking as they age and determining what to do with remaining fuel when you return from a trip since you cannot store it for an extended period.


    Portable Woodburning Stoves

    A third option - one growing in popularity - is the woodburning stove (or alternative fuel stove). These are ideal for minimalist hikers and trekkers looking for a more traditional outdoor experience. In addition, they have the advantage of a bit of pack weight as you can forage fuel from the local area rather than carrying a canister or liquids in your rucksack.


    Other Factors to Choose Camping Stoves 

    Below are a few of the other key decision points that will factor into choosing the best backpacking stove for you.

    • Stove weight: If you’re counting ounces on a long, solo thru-hike, your choice will differ from someone who mainly enjoys weekend backpacking with friends.
    • Burn time: Weather conditions and climate can significantly affect cooking times. As pre-pressurised liquefied gas becomes colder, internal pressure begins to drop.  That results in a reduced gas flow to the burner head which generates an inadequate flame for cooking and increases boil times, which will cost you precious fuel and cause delays to your itinerary. Look for a stove that features added extras such as windshields.
      Manufacturers purposely create and design the windshields. Windshields are usually made with reflective materials such as aluminium to help reflect any escaping heat lost to the wind towards the pot to maximise efficiency. However, it is essential to remember that it can explode if your gas cartridge gets too hot. To avoid this, try and allow a degree of ventilation around the cartridge and monitor it closely.
    • Average boil time: Canister stoves boil water quickly, and some models are excellent at simmering and great for camp gourmets. Liquid Fuel stoves boil water very quickly, even in cold weather. Meanwhile, Alternative or Portable Fuel stoves are primarily for boiling, though they are slower, sometimes by minutes. 

    Having a camping stove can be a great way to prepare meals out in the wild, and there’s a different stove for everyone’s needs. Since all you want is to cook your food correctly, keeping these things in mind can help you choose one right for your camping style to make the most of your food.
