The Pros And Cons Of Basecamp And Portable Stoves

There are many different kinds of camping stoves out there, and each has both upsides and downsides. Camping stoves can be categorised by many different features. Everybody has a different idea on which is the best camping stove. Some stoves are ultralight, these are for lightweight backpackers. Others are small, these are for people who don’t have much space to pack in, these can include backpackers, or campers with small cars or no mean of transportation. The best camping stove depends a great deal on what you want to use it for, and when you want to use it.

One type is the basecamp camping stove. These are the largest stoves, they are stable and are known for keeping large pots and plates in place. These stoves have two or three burners, so they can be used for recreating the same power that your kitchen has at home. The multiple burners allow you to prepare multiple dishes at the same time or cook large portions. So the biggest upside to these kinds of burners is that they provide a lot of heat. These stoves have stable ports , and they can hold big pots in one place.

Portable stoves are exactly what their name suggest. These stoves were designed for travels, so they are pretty light, and all their features are designed to make this happen. These have the best cost to heat ratio. They are great for air travel thanks to their light weight, and that they can be cleared out easily. These stoves can burn multiple types of fuels. This makes these stoves great for backpacking. You can use any type of fuel, and you can easily replace the fuel on the road. Thanks to the great fuel-burned-to-energy ratio these types of fuels are great for winter hiking, which means that your fuel will last for a long time.

Unfortunately the portable stoves have the most pollution. They flare up multiple times before they hit the right size and type of flame. These high flames produce more carbon-monoxide due to improper burning.


I have written about two types of stoves in this article. First the basecamp stoves. These are bulky, sturdy stoves that allow you to get as close to how stuff is in your kitchen as you can. The other type of stove is the portable stove. These were made for people who travel a lot. They are lightweight, they can burn with multiple types of fuel, and they are very easy to clean out. Of course there are other types of stoves as well.
