The vast selection of camping stoves tagged with technical terms a layman

when it comes to camping and buying camping stoves. However, purchasing
the right camping stove is not as hard as it may seem.

Here are some considerations you should take into account when buying a
camping stove. With these information and simple tips, selection and
purchase would be much easier

Size

Camping brands like Coleman offer one, two and multiple burner camping
stoves. What you should opt for should depend on the volume of cooking
you intend to do. If you’re solo packing, a camping stove with one or two
burner may do but if you intend to go camping with the whole family or
plan to have a camping cook feast with a bunch of friends, go for a
camping stove that has two or more burners to save time cooking.

Type of Fuel

After deciding which stove size is suitable for your camping needs, the
next thing to consider is the type of fuel you’ll want to use. Your fuel
options include propane, white gas (otherwise known as Coleman fuel),
unleaded gas, butane or kerosene. However it is mostly recommended to use
either propane or white gas only.
Out of all the camping stoves, those that are fuelled by white gas
produce the most heat. It is the more environment-friendly choice for it
burns cleanly without any odor or effect on food taste as well as
produces less waste.

Many of the Coleman camping stoves that are fuelled with white gas
operate on dual fuel system which means that the stove can run either on
white gas or unleaded gasoline. However, it is best that you use only
white gas unless during cases when you run out of it and can’t buy any.

Propane camp stoves on the other hand are simpler and more easy to use,
but weigh a lot heavier compared with white gas. But propane Coleman
camping stoves are also great choices because of their easiness to
operate and ignite, and good performance in warm climates and at low
elevations. Most Coleman camping stoves powered with propane fuel even
have electronic ignitions to save time and energy.

Type of Camping Activity

Another consideration to make is the type of camping you intend to do
during your trip. For example, if you plan to go backpacking, choose a
camping stove that is lightweight, has a single burner for this is easier
to carry in your load.

But if you intend to go on a family camping trip, a group hike or RV
camping, it is more appropriate to opt for three or four burner stoves
that would allow you to create a grand fiesta for everyone.

Now, if you’re planning to go on a beach camping trip or have a backyard
party where you’ll probably want to do some grilling on the side, a
combination of a stove and grill is the perfect choice for you.

Many camping brands such as Coleman provides you with a wide array of
quality camp stoves and background information on its features to make
your choice much easier.
