The Ultimate Camp Stove

Francesca Connolly December 21, 2012

The founders of Biolite started the company with "a strong sense of responsibility not just to develop products that work well but also to create businesses that make a positive contribution to the global community." We'd also like to point out that they look good and even allow you to charge your phone, lights, and gadgets while you cook.

Partners Alexander Drummond and Jonathan Cedar met working at the design consultancy Smart Design, where they developed products for clients such as Oxo. Hewlett Packard, Bosch, Motorola, and GE. This crossover between kitchen and electronics is fully realized in the design for the Campstove. Initially intended for the camping and adventuring set, the stove quickly caught on in the emergency preparedness market (the stove is currently on back order since hurricane Sandy).

Above: The BioLite CampStove is $129 directly from BioLite (it's on back order until mid/late January). The stoves allow you to cook your meals with nothing but the twigs you collect on your journey, eliminating the need for heavy, expensive, polluting petroleum gas. It’s quick to light, fast to boil and clean to use. By converting heat from the fire into usable electricity, our stoves will recharge your phones, lights and other gadgets while you cook dinner.
