The Advantages and Disadvantages of Using Propane Camp Stove

If you are planning to buy a stove that you will use in your trip, it is advisable that you purchase a camp stove that uses propane gas for fuel. It is easy to use and most of the stoves that fuels on one are quite handy since the propane fuel that you will use are stored in a cylindrical canister that is spill proof that you can use until empty. The stove is easy to assemble and practical to carry around especially if you and your companions do not plan to stay in one place during the whole trip.

The stove that is fueled with propane is easier to use, the flame can be adjusted according to your needs and it uses energy in the most efficient way. The propane stove is cheaper and easy to maintain as compared to some other stoves available in the market. The disadvantage of using this type of stove is the fact that it can only be used for cooking and it has to be done outdoors to avoid the possibility of experiencing carbon monoxide poisoning. It is also not advisable to use propane if you plan on going on a trip in an area of high altitude or in extreme weather conditions.

The other problem that you will encounter is the fact that the handy stove that you will purchase does not contain protective covering that will protect the fire as you cook. You may not be able to cook your food as long as the wind will keep on blowing off the fire. The propane camp stove does not function well in extreme weather conditions and its efficiency will lessen the moment that your fuel empties out. That is the reason why you have to bring a number of canisters with you on your camping trip to avoid the possibility of running out of fuel especially if the nearest civilization is far from your location.

There are different types of stoves available in the market today. You can choose to purchase a one burner, double burner, triple burner or a four burner stove. You have to purchase the stove based on where you will use it and how many persons that will utilize it during the camping trip. There are stoves available that are made of sturdy material that makes it difficult for you to carry and bring with and there are also propane one-burner stoves that you can easily lug especially the ones that are made of skeletal frames with no protective covering.
