We sell five main types of stove. Wondering which one is for you?

  • (a) Rocket stoves: sturdy workhorses that will cook anything, and can BBQ when used with a griddle. Ranging from 5 to 8kg, portable but not for carrying long distances. Very efficient and clean burning. Ideal for beach, family camping with a car, backyard or allotment cooking.
  • (b) Wood gas stoves: ingenious lightweight designs from just 280g, suited to backpacking, bushcraft and camp cooking. A viable alternative to carrying gas canisters, and some can be used with a meths burner as backup. Ideal for backpacking, and cooking smaller meals & brews. 
  • (c) Charcoal stoves:  specialist stoves for exceptionally efficient and clean combustion of charcoal. Can also be used as BBQs with a griddle.
  • (d) Storm kettles: very efficient and popular devices for boiling water using just a few twigs.
  • (e) Small-space wood burners: delicious wood-burning heat for caravans, huts, yurts, bell-tents and even small cottages.
