This is intended to be just an overview not a comprehensive nor complete treatment of this expansive subject.

This will also of necessity be an on going effort; all additional information and sources welcome.

The first part of this overview will be a survey of Stoves and Ovens currently available.

Stoves can be divided into three general catagories; back pack types, camping, and cabin types .


Camping type stoves.

Camping stoves can be catagorized by fuel type and number of burners as well as if they include a grill.

First we will note the Single Burner types both camping and Back packing. Some are design to stow away in a very small space for backpacking. Some are designed to be used to cook using large pots or skillets. While others fall in between and are used for camping.

Most Backpacker type stoves use some sort of solid fuel or liquid fuels such as butane, alcohol, kerosene, or gasoline. Solid fuels include Hexamine, Trioxane, solidified alchohol, and sterno ( aka canned heat ).

Almost all single burner camping type stoves use propane as a fuel.

I'd like to find a nice small one that burns woody bits. Fuels of any kind seem to me a liability.
