Choosing your stove


All stoves are not the same . . .
1. Multi-fuel stoves - ideal for trekking in very remote parts of the world where whatever fuel is available can be used. Designed for specialist users. Often heavier,more expensive and less efficient than gas stoves.
2. Dual fuel stoves: - liquid and vapour gas burners designed to run on cartridges which are ideal for low temperature or high altitudes where poor vaporisation may mean liquid is all you can get from your (inverted) cartridge.
3. Butane/Propane gas stoves - almost every other use.

Wind shields dramatically improve efficiency (so does covering your pot to retain heat)

Stability - wide bases and wide tops and low center of gravity are best. You can of course always build a ring of stones around your stove to support pan or burner or both, or even just make a small hole in the ground to support the canisterif you do either of these, put everything back as you found it.

Weight is important for trekking or back-packing but don't forget that the fuel is likely to be the greatest bulk.

Price - generally the more you pay the better engineered the product which means more calories of your fuel are turned into usable heat so the less fuel you'll need (to carry.)

Piezo ignition - no need for matches, very useful in damp or draughty conditions.

Boil time - standard comparison to boil a litre of water in a closed container at Sea Level - a useful comparision of efficiency of stoves and indicator of their maximum heat output.

All our stoves use EN417 standard screw fit cartridges but can be fitted with converters to take the ubiquitous sealed piercable ones too.

This allows you to use the less expensive and universally available puncture-style gas cartridges with gas appliances that are meant only to fit screw top valve cartridges. Three arms secured with a rubber band hold the adapter in place on the cartridge.

The advantages are obvious. Flexibility, independence, freedom to travel far without being tied down to a specific type of gas cartridge.

Edelrid (Vaude / Markill) Windshield
Edelrid (Vaude / Markill) Windshield


Price:  £7.14 / EUR 8.93 Including VAT

Folding aluminium wind screen with integrated attachment clips. A wind screen improves your stove’s efficiency. (Depending on wind conditions fuel consumption can be increased up to 150 %.) Recommendation: When you cook outdoors, you should always use a wind screen, as air currents are always present. When you take the reduced fuel consumption into account, the 100 g additional weight is well worth it.

SAFETY NOTE: Particularly with stoves mounted directly on the gas cartridge, be sure the cartridge does not overheat due to reflected heat from the windshield and from the bottom of the pan. The golden rule: if the cartridge is too hot to touch - its TOO HOT - turn it off !
