I had a camping bistro for years, loved it.   Couldn't use it after the prezzie ignition went on it, I still used a suitcase stove, to boil the kettle.

In my opinion safety is paramount and a cheap gas stove is a potential death trap.

Possibly true to say a decent brand such as Campinggaz is better designed/safer but still the method of sealing a gas cartridge leaves a lot to be desired as far as safety goes.

Obviously they are very popular as they are cheaper than the traditional stove and regulator/gas bottle setup and smaller in size etc but as has been said they are also limited in their use with pot size, some people do not understand or are even aware of the risks involved.

It seems anything China chucks out nowadays is allowed into the UK, safe or not!



How cheap is cheap? Here's some food for thought -

While in Go Outdoors earlier today I had a quick look at their suitcase stoves - the Campingaz one, priced at 14.99, only had an instruction leaflet, but the HiGear one at 9.99 had a very comprehensive safety/operating instruction leaflet plus good safety instructions on the gas canister cover. Tbh I never thought to check them for country of manufacture, but if I were to personally buy one on safety instructions alone it would be the HiGear, as leaflets can and do get lost.

Fair comment TM but in my experience if the instructions are a stick on label, they peel off after a short time.
I suppose another issue is that not everyone reads the instructions.

They carry a greater risk than any other stove I have used in 50 odd years of camping IMO..so therefore I would never use one.

I just hate them as years ago I watched my friends nylon type football top go up in flames and very quickly melted to his chest with this type of stove.
It turned out to be faulty and he carries the terrible scars till this day.

and to think people mock / say a fire extinguisher / blanket and the humble fire bucket are pointless/ useless on here and you should run away and wait for the fire engine to show up........




Hope your mate wasn't too badly injured vangoman

I keep all three with me when camping fire blanket and bucket mainly for people on fire Blanket to smother and bucket to begin cooling burns as you run them to the shower block or standpipe....


(helped a woman who had been sat straddling a older style cartridge stove when it tipped spilling boiling water over her upper legs and groin.. in the past) standpipe with a attached hose was a godsend..
