A reliable stove makes all the difference to camping trips, allowing you to cook up a hearty stew in the evening then warm up in the morning with a hot cup of coffee. Stoves vary in size from dinky little ultra-light burners that fit into your pocket to big stove-top numbers complete with grill, side wind protectors and a lid that is pretty much like bringing your cooker from home along with you. The great thing about all camping stoves is that they are essentially portable hobs, meaning that anything you can cook on your stove at home can be whipped up in the great outdoors by sticking a pot or frying pan on top.

Always ensure you buy the right fuel canister for your particular stove. The most common use gas (propane and butane) or liquid fuel (paraffin, kerosene, etc), and different canisters are designed to clip or screw on to different stoves. Turn the gas on and light with a match or lighter – some will burn with a bright, friendly blue flame; others are hard to see alight but make a bit of a roaring noise.

"Camping" is really different in the UK, or so it would seem. View from the competition.

Bought one of these recently. Used it on a four day excursion two weeks ago. I am impressed!
Brought a quart of water to a boil in less than five minutes. You could carry it in your shirt pocket.

Yeah, I have that one and I love it. Rubber seals mean I can keep some fuel in it.
Trangia makes a really sweet set though...

I use the MSR Dragonfly.
It's enormous and weighty for those who count grams, but when cooking for large groups or use as a water source to melt snow or boil drinking water I think it makes up for the weight with its minimal fuel consumption on exttended trips.
The wide base is convenient for large pots and uneven cooking surfaces, and in use has impressed a lot of ultralight and consider stove users.
Can be used with gasoline, diesel, kerosene, sow fuel availability in 3rd world or PAW is expanded.
