Lightweight Esbit Pocket Stoves Bring Convenience To Camping

Getting a good meal is important, even when you’re out camping.

You don’t need to go all out and cook a huge, full-course dinner. But it can be nice to have a small, portable stove to quickly heat up some food when you’re outdoors, especially if you’re not able to set up a campfire or don’t want to cook inside your RV.

These Esbit Pocket Stoves are perfect to take just about anywhere. Inexpensive and lightweight, the stoves are small enough to fit in almost any pocket, so it’s easy to take them out on camping or backpacking trips.

They come with six Esbit 14 g fuel tablets. Each of the tablets can burn for about 12 minutes, and will boil water in only about 8-10 minutes.

The stoves have two selectable cooking grades, and can be used with cups, pots, or pans of all different sizes.

They serve as a great alternative if you’re looking to quickly heat up some coffee, soup or pre-cooked foods, and don’t feel like setting up a whole campfire. Although, if needed, you can use the fuel tablets to start a campfire, or even a BBQ.

You can light the stoves with any flame and easily blow them out. And as long as they’re kept dry, re-light them again whenever needed.

The fuel tablets are smokeless, so they don’t leave much combustion residue. And as long as they’re dry, the tablets can last for over ten years.

To conserve space, you can even store them inside your RV stove when it’s not in use. And of course, you can always find extra fuel tablets online as well.
