A backpacking stove is a good investment, partly for your outdoor adventures, partly in case of crisis. With an outdoor stove, you are not dependent on electricity but can cook wherever and whenever you want, which gives you a great sense of freedom. Our assortment includes stoves that are powered by different fuels; gas stoves, multi-fuel stoves, alcohol stoves and wood-burning stoves. You can also choose between different sizes that suit different numbers of people – from small stoves for one to two people or larger stoves that fit up to four people.
At Outnorth there is a large selection of different types of backpacking stoves and it can be difficult to know which one to choose. There are a few questions to ask yourself before choosing a kitchen - what type of places you usually travel to or what type of adventure you need the stove for. What kind of fuel works best and how light or compact the kitchen needs to be depends on the place you're going to and how light you want your backpack. When you have thought about and answered to these questions, you have good guidelines for which backpacking kitchen works for you.
Choose the right backpacking stoves
Here you will find backpacking stoves in various looks and sizes from brands such as Primus, Optimus, Trangia and MSR. Some require more space in the pack than others. Among the assortment, you will also find stoves that use wood and sticks instead of liquid fuel. If you need a kitchen for winter activities, we recommend you choose a storm kitchen that is powered by fuel such as petrol and kerosene, then it can burn despite the weather and wind.
If you want to buy a kitchen that works regardless of the season, a multi-fuel kitchen is preferable. It is also important to think about the type of food you want to cook and choose a kitchen that meets your expectations and requirements.
Cook wherever you want
With a backpacking stove, you can cook where you want, whenever you want, which gives you an enormous sense of freedom. It is important that you get to know your portable kitchen by practicing how it works before you go on an adventure. It can be devastating in very cold weather with a cooker that won't start.
Taking care of your outdoor kitchen
It is important that you take proper care of, clean and store the kitchen well. First and foremost, do your absolute best to keep the outdoor kitchen clean. Sometimes it's hard when you're out hiking and don't have access to a lot of water, but at least try to clean off any leftover food and grease as soon as you can. If you get food in the burner, clean it as soon as the stove cools down. Unless otherwise specified, the outdoor kitchen can be cleaned with warm water and washing-up liquid. Wipe down the outdoor kitchen so that it does not rust.
