The BioLite CampStove is brilliant! All we have to do is gather a few sticks, throw them in the stove, light them up and we're ready to boil water or heat up our meal. We carry a small bag of wood chips when there are no sticks/twigs available.
The bonus is that while we cook our food, Kurt can charge up his iPhone with the power generated by the fire. On occasion, we use our BioLite CampStove in combination with the BioLite portable grill or the BioLite Kettle pot.
We use the stove exclusively when cooking outside and haven't tried it in our tent or van. I also appreciate that it packs small!
