Choosing a stove

The issues to consider when choosing a stove include:

  • trip duration
  • who will be using the stove – adults, teenagers or children
  • how experienced those people are
  • if the stove will be used in very cold conditions
  • if the stove will be used overseas (where certain fuel types may be unavailable).

Table 29.1 compares the advantages and disadvantages of different stove types.
