Burning food on a stove top sucks. Burning thermite on a stove top? It totally epic because flames shoot up ridiculously high and burn ridiculously bright and is just totally ridiculous in general. I mean, it burns right through the saucepan, makes a hole through the stove top and then fire drips right into the oven.
Jetboil's newly designed MiniMo is a lightweight, modular backpacking stove that not only excels at boiling water, but can now simmer and cook real food as well. We've been testing it in the Norwegian wilderness.
Now that campfires in California (and many other western states and provinces) are a thing of the past, it's looking like camp and backpacking stoves are going to be the sole means we have to fry bacon and boil water for coffee. Here's how to find the right one for you.
Can an old can of Fancy Feast cook food faster than an expensive, complicated backpacking stove? Let's find out.
Under most circumstances, the combination of trees and fire would be the stuff nightmares are made of—or dreams, for the pyromaniacs among us. But in eight days, the brilliant minds behind BioLite are going to be harnessing the power of fire with a giant, custom-built CampStove a full 200 times larger than its…
Millions of people live without access to electricity or modern fuel for cooking and heating, but the problem can seem too daunting to tackle. How much would it cost to bring rural communities or countries with limited infrastructure onto the grid?
Like a vacuum hanging over your stove, a range hood prevents cooking smells from filling your home, and stops vaporized grease from coating your cabinets. The hoods usually need to be vented, which can complicate installations. But the self-contained Greenhood can be suspended above a stove, vent-free.
Without doubt, this has got to be the only way any self-respecting Apple fan boy would cook their dinner: on an iPhone-branded stove. Sadly, they've all been confiscated by Chinese authorities because they were—and I'm sure you'll struggle to believe this— fake.
For some people, weather means nothing; they have to get outside and into nature no matter what. Here's the thing, though: without the right gear, they will die out there. Here's some of the sweetest cold-weather camp gear around.
The last camping stove I owned was a 15-pound '70s-era Coleman behemoth that took longer to light than actually cook a meal on. So to now use the 1.5-pound Sol cooking system and the Sumo Ti mug is nothing short of magical.
When the AGA cast-iron stove was first released in 1935, it took six hours so heat up. That's stayed the same up until today. But the new metal monster takes only eight minutes—and fires up with a touchscreen.
Love it for its simplicity, then hate it when the plywood catches fire from an errant breeze across the stove-top. Studiomama's mobile kitchen has a bucket and garden hose for a sink, with a watering can collecting dirty water.
I'm looking at my not-that-big apartment and I see a separate fridge, sink and stove in my kitchen. Sure, it's convenient but if I could have this 1952 Cook and Wash Refrigerator Unit instead, I'd be living in a mansion.
I'm almost too scared to tell you that the BioLite camping stove can burn anything. I don't want to know what you'd shove in there. Still, the leftover heat can be used to power your gadgets—that's good, right?
Making dinner for two? Then move along. The Electrolux Personal Mini Kitchen concept is designed to hold the bare essentials for one person: A small silicon hotplate, a tiny soda-can-sized fridge, and a tablet PC.
Fisher and Paykel have had a re-think of the humble kitchen range. Their new Izona Cooksurface looks more like a ceramic electric hob than a gas one, and dumps the four-burner pattern that nearly every other range uses. Though this gives you fewer cooking stations, it at least means you won't set your sleeves on fire…
Here is another interesting design by Yu-ri Lee. For cooking on the go, why not build the heating element directly into the stand? And a tripod is a simple, folding solution to hold your pan/soon to be ruined camera.
