Food cooking on a camping stove

Three gas-fuelled devices campers must have

In a recent blog post, we discussed the best bottled gas fuel options for campers. However, if you’re truly enthusiastic about camping, it’s important to make sure you have the right equipment, not just the right fuel. There are several fuel-burning devices that every camper should invest in. In today’s blog, we’ll look at these essential pieces of equipment and give you some advice on choosing the options that suit you best.

1. A portable gas stove

If you plan on cooking while you’re camping, you’ll need to invest in one of these. There are a wide variety of portable stoves that can be powered by ordinary Calor gas bottles, so you have plenty of options to choose from. If you’re camping alone (or with just one other person), we recommend choosing a smaller gas stove, because they can be easier to set up in the confines of a camp-site. However, if you are going camping with several other people, you may wish to buy a slightly larger stove that has two or three rings and can therefore cook two or more meals simultaneously.

2. A cabinet heater

While cabinet heaters aren’t suitable for smaller tents, it’s worth investing in one if you plan on setting up a larger camp-site or camping in a caravan. They’re portable and can be fuelled easily, making them the best option for keeping warm if you like to go camping in colder weather. We offer a wide variety of cabinet heaters here at London Gases. We suggest choosing a small, sturdy option for camping. Just remember not to leave your chosen heater near anything flammable when it’s switched on!

3. A barbecue

Of course, you can cook on a portable gas stove throughout your camping trip. However, if you want to add a little variety, you should invest in a barbecue. You can cook some amazing meals on a barbecue without having to leave your camp-site. If you have the space to store it, it may be worth investing in a larger portable barbecue. After all, you’ll probably want to cook multiple food-stuffs on it at the same time.

Here at London Gases, we can provide you with fuel for cabinet heaters, Calor gas bottles for your stove and BBQ gas for your barbecue. Invest in the equipment today, and we can provide you with the fuel whenever you need it.
