An absolutely superb piece of camping equipment. We can see why it is the best selling camping stove online at the moment. The Campingaz Camp Bistro is the ideal solution to those cooking dilemmas whether you are at home or in the middle of a forest.
We found the unit extremely lightweight and durable, and it fits wonderfully in the hard plastic carry case it is supplied with. None of this fighting to get it back, it goes back like a dream. The case is a great size and makes storing it no problem.
When operating the stove we were able to achieve a maximum run time of just over 1 hour which is not far off what is advertised by Campingaz. We didn’t worry about timing the boiling time but it certainly wasn’t far off the 5 minute mark.
The paintwork is smooth and shiny on both the stove base and the enamel work on the hob which makes it really simple and painless to clean which is ideal for those who need to be able to pack up and leave quickly.
The cartridges were only £2 each and for the length of time that you can achieve from one of them we think it is a really good buy. We would recommend that you buy the cartridges in packs of 4 or more and keep some spare so that you are prepared for your travels.
Overall this camping stove is amazing value for money and extremely versatile – it has our stamp of approval.
