What I Like About The Outon Portable Camping Wood Stove

There are a number of features that make this little portable camping wood stove a great buy.

  • Easy setup – the stove has a hinged design which makes it super easy to assemble and disassemble in about 30 seconds flat.
  • Durable material – made of stainless steel, this product will handle your wilderness cooking needs.
  • Compact and lightweight – even though it is made of stainless steel, it is still light enough (7.2 ounces) to add to your backpack without a second thought. It also folds down pretty flat to save space.
  • Multiple fuel options – this portable camping wood stove comes with an additional shelf and alcohol dish. This holds alcohol as burner fuel or solid fuel tablets to give you options on different fuels, depending on your preference.
  • Variable Pot Size Options – The stove comes with cross supports to cater fore different container sizes. Medium size camping pots to a coffee mug fit comfortably on the stove.
  • Wind protection – the sides of the box design offer wind protection to the fuel being burned in the stove and for the lighting of the fuel.
  • Good Ventilation – The ventilation holes in the portable camping wood stove provide good airflow. This keeps the wood burning, improving efficiency by ensuring a complete burn of the fuel.

What I Don’t Like About The Outon Portable Camping Wood Stove

There a a couple of features on this stove that could do with some improvement.

  • Warping – the stainless steel is a little thin, and some components warp a little in hot fires. This however, does not impact the function or efficiency of the stove. I therefore consider this a minor problem with this product.


This portable camping wood stove is good value for money, lightweight, easy to use and I highly recommend it. This stove is a must have for your fishing trip, hiking backpack or survival kit!
