8 Best 3 Burner Camping Stoves

If you are preparing for the coming camping season, you will want to check this list with 3 burner camping stoves, portable, and easy to use outdoor items. Keep reading.

There are many 2-burner camping stoves on the market but this is not so with 3-burner stoves. This is so even in normal circumstances, and this holds in particular with this crisis situation in the world caused by the virus.

The third burner can be added as a standard cooking burner and you will see a few examples in the list below. But more frequently such a third heat source is added simply to allow for larger pots or to provide more or less even temperature over a larger area. In some cases you will see that all the burners are used to heat a grill area, and there are also some other interesting combinations.

Ignition: Usually such burners come with a built-in piezo-ignition system. But it is always a good idea to have an extra lighter, this is simply because such built-in systems can fail.

Heat output is usually given in the obsolete but widely used British Thermal Unit (BTU). Normally manufacturers always give this value for each of the burners separately, and this holds in particular if the burners have different designs. Sometimes they can give the total value if the burners are all the same.

These are portable outdoor items and they usually come as folding boxes where the lid doubles as a windshield, sometimes also with some side shields that fold inside for transportation. This is good to have to save the fuel and to increase cooking efficiency.

You always have heat adjusting knobs on the sides and you will see them in the pictures, this allows for separate adjustment of each of the burners and you can have a simmer option.

So here is my list with 3 burner propane camp stoves ordered alphabetically, so this is not a ranking. Please have a look and follow the links to see more.
