How to clean your camping stove
Camping stoves can easily get dirty through general use and you should wipe down the outside regularly during camping trips to prevent a build-up of grime.
If a pan boils over or oil spits out when frying, make sure you give the burners a clean with a warm, soapy water and a cloth.
Sometimes the jets on a gas stove can get clogged, disrupting the flame, and affecting the stove’s performance. In those cases you’ll need to be a bit more thorough.
First, make sure the stove is cool and that it is disconnected from the gas supply. Then unscrew the burner from the stove, lift off the rings and inspect for any food debris that could be affecting the gas flow.
Use a small needle to clear any waste then clean it with soap and warm water before rinsing and reassembling. If the stove has a large amount of dirt build-up inside you could use a high-pressure hose on it. But make sure you empty all the water out after washing to prevent the build-up of rust inside the manifold.
Annual cleanings are recommended before storing your stove at the end of camping season, but make sure it’s completely dry before packing away.
