Five most common mistakes made with outdoor stoves
Steeped in Swedish engineering, Primus has been globally recognized for pioneering outdoor cooking since 1892.
Since then our innovative products have made countless expeditions possible through outstanding quality and performance: a Primus stove accompanied Roald Amundsen when he was the first person to reach the South Pole on 14 December 1911. Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay used a Primus on Mount Everest when they climbed the summit on 29 May 1953.
Swedish stove manufacturer Primus has commissioned a study by Strong Roots Training into the most common mistakes made when using an outdoor stove.
Strong Roots Training asked 1000 outdoor enthusiasts and instructors what were the most common mistakes they had come across when using an outdoor stove. They are listed below:
1. Not allowing a stove to cool after use, or forgetting it’s hot before picking it up.
2. Using the wrong fuel or not checking the gas bottle fits before use.
3. Setting up to cook on an uneven surface.
4. Putting pan onto boil whilst setting up camp and forgetting about it, allowing it to boil dry and damaging the pots.
5. Refilling a meth’s stove prior to it being extinguished. Fire!
