Any suggestions? I want something portable and easy to use and don't want to spend more than £40. I don't think we'll be doing anything heavy duty on it - just some hot drinks in the morning, the odd bowl of pasta and toast would be a bonus.
We got two 'one hob' camping things in "Go Outdoors" along with some packs of gas cannisters (small). You take the lid off the cannister, open the side of the 'hob', put the cannister in, turn it, and then you're good to go. £8 each. http://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/hi-gear-portable-gas-camping-stove-p142491
The cannisters were something like £12 for a 4 pack. We used them when we were camping last month for boiling kettle and boiling pans of water for pasta. They were fine! You can also get the same sort of hob things in Asda but I don't know if they sell the gas.
Both versions are portable - they come in their own carry case.
Same as Red, we got two of those little hobs, each in their own little carry case - Gelert ones, on offer in B&Q for £5 each.
We've never yet used both hobs at the same time, we've always been fine with just the one and I've managed to make hot drinks and a full fry up every morning for three of us without needing both hobs on the go at the same time.
Thanks all. I went for a little one ring thing that takes a canister about the size of an aerosol. I toyed with the idea of the two rings, but they all seemed to take bigger gas bottles and want to keep it small. As long as I can get a cup of coffee to get me going in the morning I'll be happy.
We've got the two-ring version of the one you are all talking about (obv it takes two little canisters!) because I couldn't face having a gas bottle to worry about. It is so easy to use and takes up hardly any space although I'm a bit disappointed it didn't come with a case like the smaller ones.
