Campsite bookings have surged by more than 500 per cent in the summer of 2021, which suggests that thousands of people are about to try sleeping outdoors for the very first time.
If that sounds like you and you’re trying to get prepared for a camping adventure, one of the essentials you can’t live without is a portable camping stove.
The one-ring Campingaz camping stove is less than £25 and weighs just over a kilogram, which might also make it appealing to those who already have a larger portable cooking set-up.
As it’s compatible with an ultra-tiny CP250 gas cannister, which integrates inside the cooker while it’s in operation, you only need to think about how much space the cooker takes up and there’s no need to lug a huge amount of gas on your travels.

Despite its diminutive size, the Campingaz camping stove is quick and easy to start. Whether you’re using it to boil water for your morning hot drink or to fry up some eggs for breakfast, the 2200W cooker heats up fast.
But it also has an adjustable dial so you can decide whether to blast the heat or let things simmer.
Not only is it the number one bestseller in the camping stoves category on Amazon, but more than 80 per cent of reviewers have given it a full five stars.
Those who have used the Campingaz camping stove to cook a meal in the great outdoors praise the simple set-up and value for money.
One happy camper wrote: ‘I’ve used different stoves for several years, camping and camper vanning. This is one of the best, even though it’s one of the cheapest.
The Campingaz camping stove has impressed Amazon shoppers with its value for money
‘There’s no nonsense, and it’s easy to use. Stick a canister in, turn the knob, press the button and on comes the burner. Food cooks quick and even and water boils quickly.’
Another added: ‘I wish I bought one of these years ago. I do have a mini BBQ, but I find this unit far easier to use with a frying pan and certainly far quicker to set up!
‘Another bonus is it’s so much easier to clean due to its enamel coating and the gas bottle lasts for four or five outings.’
One particular feature that has impressed reviewers is the supportive bars around the hob, which keeps pans safe and stable, even on bumpy ground.
The Campingaz cooker comes with its own sturdy black carry case, so you can throw it in the boot of your car and forget about it until you arrive at your destination.
