What are camping stoves?
Camping Stoves are portable stoves that you can use to cook food when camping or climbing. These camp stoves rely on small butane cartridges, which usually fit into the stove itself, as their source of fuel.
Camping stoves also come with a range of accessories to perform better in all kinds of weather and environments, including:
- Windshields to keep food and flame protected
- Canister stands to keep heating elements off the ground
- Igniters to help light the stove in inclement weather
- Pots and pans to allow for a variety of dishes
