In the past few years, we purchased and tested over 30 camping stoves and were able to come up with the top 3 stoves for your camping trips.
After doing extensive research, here are the top 3 we came up with.
1. GSI Selkirk Outdoors 540
This camping stove is a functional and sleek and offers great efficiency and durability. We found that it performed quite well even when it is windy. GSI stove ranked high in our proficiency tests.
We also like the fact that it is easily portable. However, one thing that concerned us about this stove is that it cooks hot. Nonetheless, you can control this by paying close attention.
2. Coleman Classic
Coleman is straightforward and simple. It is affordable and has adjustable windscreens. We were satisfied with how it met most of our needs and is easy to pack. But note that its handle is sharp and it has a cheap front latch. Also, it doesn’t have an auto-ignition.
3. GS-3000 Gas One
This camping stove is affordable and versatile. It is a single burner that cooks well, weighs less, and is easy to clean up. It also has an auto-ignition. What we did not like about this brand is that it takes time to boil water and has high fuel consumption.
