Gas Camping Stoves

Gas camping stoves come in all shapes and sizes and are ideal for the individual backpackers to larger camping groups. The beauty of using gas camping stoves is that the fuel is contained within a sealed cannister that avoids leaks and spillages that can occur when using liquid fuels such as paraffin and kerosene. The heat from the gas is instantaneous and burns cleanly without producing soot, which is always a good thing when it comes to washing up your pans and packing the stove back in to your kit bag. From a cooking point of view the heat output is easily adjustable, so you can go from a fast rolling boil to a slow simmer in a matter of seconds. With a less complicated design compared to multifuel camping stoves, much less maintenance time is required. However, the downsides of using gas camping stoves is the relatively high price of the cannisters and the reduced performance when in extreme cold temperatures and at high altitudes. In addition , you may struggle to find stockists of gas cannisters in certain places or you may have to carry large quantities if going to remote areas for longer periods.
