Because we now live in an area where ice could knock out our power, as many in Oklahoma have experienced this week, it’s important to me to have alternate ways of heating food.
I love these little backpack stoves and have several. They screw onto the fuel can and when you’re done cooking, they unscrew and the fuel can is closed and the fuel does not escape.
The little stoves are lightweight and can’t handle a heavy pot so I keep backpacking pots to use on them. They’re great or cooking eggs, sausage, heating up soups or even chopping up a chicken breast and browning it.
When the ice was predicted here earlier this week, I got it all out, made sure I knew where all pieces were. Thankfully I didn’t have to use it.
They’re inexpensive, take up little space and are very handy if needed.
Chad told me about these several years ago. He takes them when they go camping and he said he can cook on them a lot for a whole week and never use up a whole can of fuel.
Caution: These stoves say “For outside use only”. If I were cooking on them, I’d either go into the sunroom and open windows, or go into the garage and open, or partially open a door. I wouldn’t use them inside the house unless I was using it for just a few minutes and we do have carbon monoxide detectors.
