best gas stove for hiking top 5 camping gas cooker for trekking gas stove review for camping things to pack

These choices are a little bigger than the ultra-portable stoves we’ve reviewed at Camping Things, but they’re still easily packable.

Wind can seriously ruin a good time when you’re out camping, trying to cook. That’s why we’ve picked a range of the best camping GAS stoves that are windproof, so that you can keep the heat, no matter how rough it gets.

 

EZOWare Portable Stove With Wind Deflector

‘Adjustable wind deflector to keep flame going.’

Sturdy on its feet, the EZOWare is all about protecting the flame, to keep food and liquids heating evenly and efficiently. No more on-site frustration, just perfect performance every time. Easy to use flame control valve gives you greater control over the heating of your food, and wind deflector leaves keep the party going while you’re out camping.

Weight and portability
Weighing in at under 600g, the EZOWare is still pretty lightweight for a more sizable stove. It folds away fairly well for transport in your backpack and storage in your car, and the delicate-looking wind deflector leaves are actually solidly sturdy.

Measures roughly 12cm x 12cm x 10cm

Materials
Made to withstand the elements and high temperatures, the EZOWare is made from stainless steel and an aluminium alloy. Definitely one of the Best camping GAS stoves available.

Features
The main feature of the EZOWare is its series of wind deflector leaves. They fold out and in like flower petals, and are designed to help keep the wind away from the flame. They do so pretty well, and they sit nicely on top of the EZOWare’s solid foundation.

Why we love it
Windy days can make lighting the stove outside a problem, and lighting it inside is a recipe for disaster. The EZOWare solves most of that problem. A good contender for the winner of our Best camping GAS stoves review.

Campingaz Chef Folding Double Burner Stove and Grill

‘For the camping BBQ chef in you.’

Well, now we are getting fancy. The Campingaz Chef is a double burner stove and grill, which can house frying pans and food on a grill plate. For when you’ve got a few hungry campers to feed, or for when you’re throwing a tent party, the Chef is an awesome choice. The Chef is self-contained in its own carry case, and runs on gas canisters.

Weight and portability
The Campingaz Chef isn’t really made for hiking over long distances, it’s pretty heavy, at over 4kg. That said, it stores flat and neatly in the boot of your car, so if you’re off on a weekend camping trip, once it’s out and on-site, the Chef really is no trouble at all.

The hose is sold separately, unfortunately, but even with it, the whole lot packs away nicely and neatly.

Materials
The housing is durable plastic, and the grill and burner set itself is made from high grade steel, for strength and longevity.

Features
Ideal for whipping up breakfast on the camping site, there’s enough room on the two burners for frying pans and saucepans, and the downward grill toasts bread pretty quickly. Both burners are adjustable, using the dials on the front, and providing you don’t spill anything, there’s very little cleanup to be done.

Why we love it
Compact, safe and sturdy, with enough room to make breakfast for the whole family. Packs away nicely and looks great.
