6 Of The Best New Camping Cookers And Stoves for 2018


Camping stoves come in different styles, sizes and fuel types all with different benefits depending on the type of trip you’re planning.

They range from lightweight cooking systems to double burner units with grills, all the way up to high-tech pizza ovens.

Here we’ve selected some of the new gear you’ll find in the shops in 2018.

It looks like a droid from one of the Star Wars films, and having this will certainly mean you’ll have the force with you on the campsite. Designed to work with the nifty BaseCamp stove, it lets you cook pizzas and flatbreads and other oven-based favourites. An integrated thermometer monitors temperatures while the ceramic stone keeps foods crisp and evenly cooked. You can also use the dome separately as a traditional lid for concentrated heat and faster cook times. And apart from all that, it just looks really cool.

The infrared burner has been around for a few years now and has been called the microwave of outdoor cooking because of the convenience it brings to the campsite. The IR Grill is basically a traditional two-burner stove with the addition of one of these grills. The benefit of this technology is that it provides very high heat output and cooks evenly but remains low on fuel consumption and emissions. Features include auto-piezo ignition for easy lighting, a drip tray, anti-slip feet and a vibrant green, lockable protective lid.


If this reminds you of another certain well-known charcoal barbecue, then you’re not alone! Not that there’s anything wrong with that. The Calvi is charcoal burning and features a battery-powered fan for accurate and smooth heat adjustment.


Made using a combination of high quality, sustainable materials (stainless steel, brass and oak) the new Primus Kuchoma is a small, lightweight grill that’s compact, powerful, energy efficient and portable. It’s easy to use and remains stable on uneven ground, the grill gives both direct and indirect heat to cook food accurately. The grill is powered by small camping gas canisters or can be run via refillable cylinders using an adaptor kit.

Light and compact, the Fire Moth is an all-in-one cook system. It features a burner with an integral pre-heater that optimises performance in low temperatures. The heat exhange system improves efficiency and the neoprene sleeve gives the pot additional thermal insulation. Everything (including a gas cannister) packs together and will fit in its mesh bag.

This 4.5 litre pan is MSR’s largest capacity pot for groups and large volume cooking. It features a high-performance heat exchanger for fast boil times and is self-centering to provide increased stability. It’s designed to work with the acclaimed WindBurner stove system.
