The small and compact Esbit Portable Camping Stove is one of my favorite pieces of adventure gear! I use this stove to cook in the backyard, go on a biking lunch adventure, or brew fresh campsite coffee. This stove goes with me anywhere! The Esbit stove is perfect if you are camping or adventuring and want to pack light. It is even great if you want to have some fun in your own back yard. My kids and I have a lot of fun using this cute little stove.
The Esbit Portable Camping Stove includes an anodized aluminum pot and lid, pot stand with wind deflector, and a mesh storage bag. The pot is lightweight, with hinged handles that fold flat, and measurement indicators on the side. The lid fits snugly on the pot. The pot and lid sit on top of the pot stand, where you place an Esbit fuel cube (sold separately). Once you light the fuel cube, water will boil in just a few minutes on the stove. (For one cup of water, it took 4 minutes to boil for me.) When you finish using the stove, the pot stand nests in the pot, and then all components pack up in the mesh bag.
Camp Stove Adventures!
I’ve used the Esbit stove for many different adventures. Because it is so light, and packs so small, it is easy to bring along anywhere. It is great for boiling water or heating up other liquids. Over winter break, my teenage sons and I set out for a bike and lunch adventure. We packed the Esbit stove, water, and dehydrated meals into small backpacks. Then we set out on our bikes, and stopped to prepare lunch in a nearby park. The stove was light enough to fit in our small backpacks and was an easy way to prepare a quick outdoor lunch!
Good Morning, Camp Coffee…
On my recent overnight camping trip with Sean, I packed the Esbit stove. I’m a huge fan of my home brewed Aeropress coffee, and wanted to have a fresh cup at camp! In the early morning, I was able to quietly heat up the water for some fresh coffee at our campsite. What better way to enjoy a campsite sunrise than with the perfect cup of brewed coffee.
A Better Instant Soup
I like to experiment with new recipes to bring on my adventures. I recently created a homemade instant noodle soup that just needs hot water. Prepare the soup ahead, and then when it is time to eat, simply boil water in the Esbit stove to add to the instant soup! The instant soup and Esbit Portable Camping Stove are a perfect adventure combination. Bring both along on a camping trip, backpacking adventure, or another bike and lunch!
