How To Use A Single Burner Camp Stove

You want to know how to use a single burner camp stove. If you have a single burner camp stove, you obviously went camping with just yourself or one other person. With a single burner camp stove, you can only cook one type of food at a time. The single burner camp stove is easy to use and adds to the convenience of your camping trip.

  1. You are going on a camping trip with a friend or by yourself. Choose two pans to bring with you, so you can cook your food. Bring plates and utensils to allow you to eat your food. Do not forget to bring your single burner camp stove. A single burner camp stove is convenient because it will cook your food, but is also light and easy to carry.
  2. You opted for the lightweight single burner camp stove. You did not want it to weigh your backpack down too much. Take the single burner camp stove out of your back pack and place it down on the ground. Do not place it around dried out leaves or brush. You do not want to mistakenly start a forest fire.
  3. Hook up your single burner camp stove to the fuel. This is done through a direct attachment or a flexible tube. The fuel you choose for your single burner camp stove is important. If you are hiking or camping in spring, summer or fall, Propane will work well for you. If you are hiking or camping in temperatures below forty, you will have to change your fuel type for your singe burner camp stove. If you hike or camp all year round, it would be best to have a single burner camp stove that can use more than one fuel. Anyway, hook your single burner camp stove up to the desired type of fuel.
  4. Make sure your single burner camp stove has electric ignition. This means you turn it on and it works automatically. Turn your single burner stove on. Turn the knob to the desired heat. Try to keep your single burner camp stove away from the wind. Wind will make it harder for you to cook your food. Wind will also make you spend more on your fuel. You turned your single burner camp stove on and you are ready to cook your food.
  5. Take one of your pans, put the desired food in it, and place it on the stove. Make sure you watch your food. You do not want to cook it on high because you do not want to burn your food. Change the temperature lower or higher as needed. When you are finished cooking your food, shut off your single burner camp stove. Let the stove cool off while you are eating your food.
  6. Do not touch the single burner camp stove until it is completely cooled off. You do not want to burn yourself. When your single burner camp stove is cooled, disconnect the fuel. This is a very important step. Propane will often leak out if it is not disconnected from the single burner camp stove. You do not want to lose your fuel.  A single burner camp stove is useless without fuel.
  7. You have learned how to use your single burner camp stove. Make sure you keep it ready for your next use. If you are leaving the campsite, pack the single burner camp stove in your backpack. Happy camping.
