We are making a proper effort to get as much camping in this year with our 2 daughters (4 + 2) and need to upgrade from our 1 burner portable stove. We have been looking at a couple of Hi-Gear double burners from Go Outdoors. Do you guys have any recommendations for double burner stoves. Budget upto 50 (60 at a push if needed)
Thanks ;-)

Are these cartridge/canister stoves or cylinder?
I'd recommend my primus njord duo if it is a canister stove you want. It is at the top end of your budget but oozes quality. An added bonus is it can use screw on cartridges or camping gaz clic cartridges.

You could always just buy another single burner similar to the one you already have

Hi Mark,
Thanks for the offer, we are in South lakes (Cumbria) a bit too far away. Cheers anyway.
I had looked at those Campingaz chef ones.
Eel28, you may have a good idea there. Same Canisters etc.

Thanks all

Yes a bit far.

Totally off topic any good campsites you would like to recommend in the lakes for the summer holidays. :-)

Hi Mark,
There are countless good ones. The one we return to is Park Foot in Pooley Bridge. On the shores of Ullswater. A bit of a holiday park but we have 2 little girls so having a few extras on the site help avoid any boredom issues.
Lovely walks around the lake onto the fells and great pubs in Pooley Bridge itself.
The national Trust has some good sites. 1 in Langdale and 1 at Wray nr Ambleside.
Another great one is the Fisherground site in Eskdale. There is a little railway line called La'al Ratty that goes to Ravenglass (another great site there)
I could carry on all day, but they are a few of the really good ones. (I.M.O)

Campingaz vario chef

that is a good stove for 39.00 but you will need a hose regulator and a gas bottle to go with that

if you want another suitcase stove then millets have the campingaz suitcase stove for 10.00 which is a good price

that is a good price for the vario chef

campingaz vario chef video

dont rush to buy the regulator and the hose from millets it is to expensive and you dont know what gass bottle you are going to get yet

as soon as you order the stove search on gumtree e bay and free cycle for a campingaz 907 gass bottle or my chice would be a calor gas 4.5KG bottle

also a trip to the local recycling center to see if they have any that you can





then wichever bottle you get buy a regulator to fit which should cost about 5.00 and hose at 1.00 a foot

Personally, I'd go for the Calor gas option, twice the amount of gas, for around half the price of the Campingaz

I also said my choice would be the Calor 4.5kg i did not explain it was cheaper but that is the main reason

I do have both but use the calor more

when looking for an empty bottle free of charge then get any bottle from group A and then take it to a calor supplier and exchange it for a full calor 4.5 kg blue
