The Best New Camping Cookers And Stoves For 2019
From lightweight cooking systems to double burner units with grills, camping stoves and cookers come in a range of different styles, sizes and fuel types.
So whether you want to heat a tin of beans or rustle up a guyrope gourmet standard meal, you'll be able to find the perfect cooker for your needs. You can even do a Sunday roast!
Here’s a selection of new models to help you cook up a storm on the campsite
VANGO BLAZE DOUBLE
Ideal for the campsite as well as for taking on picnics, the new Blaze Double is a no frills cooker that offers great heat output for fast and efficient cooking. The two stainless-steel burners are easy to clean and the low-to-ground design, combined with anti-slip feet, ensures stability.
Cooking over an open fire is the dream for many campers, but working out how to do it can be tricky. The Primus Aeril L makes it easy. Made from stainless steel, it can be used with the included grill grate or standard pots. The grate is height adjustable so you can control cooking temperature by moving it and it all folds flat for easy transportation. The Aeril is also available in a smaller sized model for £85.
OUTWELL GRIMSBY INDUCTION HOB
Fire risk from open flames and the danger of carbon monoxide poisoning means cooking inside your tent is not generally recommended, but when it’s wet and windy outside sometimes you might feel you’ve got no choice. If you have hook-up, an electric hob like this new induction model from Outwell is the safe option. It also cooks quicker than gas, is easy to clean and simple to adjust. In addition to the Grimsby, Outwell are bringing out a full range of compact 230V electric models in 2019, including the Selby griddle, Whitby Skillet, Darby Grill barbecue and Danby Contact Grill. Sounds like someone went to Yorkshire on holiday!
BioLite never fail to come up with interesting new gear, and this is no exception. The FirePit lets you enjoy the warmth, smell, and feel of a traditional campfire without any of the smoke. Lift the fuel rack and chuck in some charcoal to transform the FirePit into a Japanese hibachi-style grill, complete with an included grill grate. You can even control the size of the flames remotely with an app.
KAMPA IGNIS MINI OVEN
It toasts, grills, bakes and roasts… what more do you need? A camping oven opens up a whole new world of culinary delights, whether it’s reheating pre-made meals, grilling meat or even baking bread. For us the best news is that it’s big enough to cook for a 9in pizza. The oven comes with a baking tray and chromed wire rack and has a 30 minute timer with bell. It’s not too bulky either, weighing in at just 2.66kg.
