Are you planning a picnic, a family meal, or just just want a cup of coffee while traveling? If so, the best way to prepare or heat foods and beverages is of course a portable gas stove. You can take these stoves anywhere: To the woods, the creek, or even the sea. The real question is how do I know which portable gas stove is right for me? Here you will  find the answer to your question.

A matter of personal preference

First of all, it is important to understand that there are several types of portable stoves. Ultimately, the choice depends on your needs and preferences. If you are looking for a recommended portable gas stove from good brands, you can start with the Superbay website from Supergas. It offers a wide range of excellent gas stoves. This way you can at least start getting to know the different types of stoves. You can even order the products online if you find one that you like. In any case, as we have said it is a matter of personal preference and it cannot be said that there is one gas stove that will always be the right choice for everyone.

 Let’s look at some examples:

If you are not someone who lives and breathes nature, but from time to time you like to go on long walks, you should not go for the most expensive and compact gas stoves. For example, you can choose a coffee set of different types of gas (with a field stove for a valve tank, with alpine gas or wind-resistant surface gas)This comes with a stainless steel fin, a valve gas tank of different sizes, a storage container for sugar, coffee, a spoon, and three glass cups . By the way, some of these kits also come with a checkers and backgammon kit as a gift. It really upgrades the outdoor coffee experience.

This is a great option for those who are usually satisfied with coffee or tea, or want to quickly prepare ready-made foods, but it is less suitable for those who also want to cook in the field (make rice, pasta, etc.). The reason is that these gases are suitable for relatively small containers of 190, 220, 230 or 450 grams. It is true that you can also prepare a meal with these balloons and they can work for a good amount of time, but not really convenient for whole meals that will require you to replace the balloons relatively often. For whole meals it is better to be equipped with a field stove with a 2.5 kg balloon. This size balloon will for sure be enough to cook for hours.

If you are hiking:

Finally, if you are a fan of hiking in the field (not just in a car), you should note that the kit you buy comes with a bag that has straps to attach to backpacks or bicycles. In any case, it is better to go for a windproof stove or an alpine stove that is very small and allows you to carry it in the backpack with  minimum weight and space.
