Whether you’re a prepper or just looking to cook food while on a camping trip, portable stoves can get the job done. Thankfully, there are numerous options on the market. However, not all portable camp stoves are built equally – some are much better than others.
The Canway Camping Stove is cheaper than other options and has the ability to burn leaves, twigs, pinecones and other biomass fuels that are easy to scavenge. Simple stowing and carrying, combined with the ease in finding fuel for this stove almost anywhere, give it an edge over bulkier versions that require propane or bigger logs.
Maybe you’re looking for a stove you can use in an emergency. The good news is that portable camp stoves work great for these scenarios as well. For example, a lightweight camp stove can be a game-changer in a bug-out situation – allowing you to cook food while keeping a low profile. For more everyday issues, a camp stove will still be operational if the power is knocked out by a bad storm.
Extreme care must be used when attempting to use these indoors, however, as they are a fire danger. Also, many varieties of camp stoves create carbon monoxide (a potentially deadly, odorless gas) as a byproduct of burning. Those that burn wood, charcoal or kerosene should never be used indoors. Propane stoves are generally safer, but should still only be used in well-ventilated areas.
The stove you choose is entirely up to you, but your options are limited to the space you have available and the fuel you want to use.
