How to Use a Camp Stove

Learn how to use a camp stove from Heather Menicucci, author of Let's Get Primitive: The Urban Girl's Guide to Camping, in this Howcast video.


So this is my camping stove. It's just three parts. It's a base, a propane tank that fits in there, and the burner, and it's really easy. It's kind of awesome. The burner screws right into the tank and there you go. Then you just get the gas going and there you go. There it is.

So, this is the gas going really high. It has some control as far as temperature goes. It's kind of windy here now. But what's really great about a camp stove is that if you're not having any luck with your fire, you're still going to get to eat. When you're looking at purchasing a camp stove, you want to think about the tanks and the kind of gas they hold, and how long they're going to last for.

So, the propane tanks are kind of big, but they do last for awhile. So there are pros and cons. But this is one that I really like. I think it's super easy to use and now that I have a camp stove I would never camp without one.
