    Open season again - simply enter your best, favourite, most interesting, whatever 'camp stove'.

    We'll not rule out domestic ranges, boat stoves, etc - throw them into the mix too. Fuel - any. The only exclusion I'd like to impose is full-on kitchen 'cookers' not designed to be portable. Not clear? I'll shout up if I see one!

    Post your nomination as a reply to this post.

    The rules.
    • Stove must feature in the Stove Reference Gallery (SRG) with a link posted in the entry. So now's the time to get those stoves photographed & posted! If it's been listed for years already that is ok too.
    • Maximum of 2 pictures in the entry. The pictures must show the stove working & in it's entirety. More pictures can of course be shown in the linked SRG entry - as many as you want!
    • Stove must be presently owned by the member.
    • One entry per member.
    This nominations post will be open for the month of July. At the end of the month the post will be closed & the qualifying stoves placed in a blind poll for members to vote for. The poll will remain open for 1 week. Most votes is the winner.

    The winner will get a SotM Winner notation on their posts & profile & a £10 voucher code from The Fettlebox

    Good luck & have fun

    Well, someone has to make the first entry...

    1930's Optimus Travelling 1S with "lion" or "claw" feet as featured here: 1930's Traveling 1 S with claw feet

    I'm very weak to ornamental design beyond the functional requirements and I find the lion feet of the travelling stoves to be a perfect example. There may be room for more ornamental design on larger stoves, household types etc. but the travelling /collapsible stoves are intended to be brought along, possibly even carried. So here ornamental design is restricted to small expressions, but still in this case it drastically elevates the design of the whole stove.

    Good luck to everyone!

    One of the favourites in my collection is this Coleman/Jolp King Hotplate. Stunning green enamel, perfect cast iron and unfired until I got my hands on it. Dating probably from the 1930s.
    Jolp/Coleman '372'.

    Hi, here are a couple of photos of my Primus 535 cooker dating from around 1955. This kerosene fuelled stove has two regulated silent burners and is a very powerful and controllable cooker for use in a base camp or domestic setting.

    I came across this stove again yesterday while cleaning out my garage. It's a 1950s Kamper King Model P-2-B propane stove made by the Trinity Mfg. Co. of Burbank California. If you check out the Gallery post you'll see that despite its 41 lb. weight this really is a portable camping stove, just built before the invention of disposable 1 lb. cylinders. It still works perfectly.

    Nicely done. I have a soft spot for propane.

    When I want to use a camp stove not running on kerosene/white gas, this is the one I pick.
    The stove is very thirsty and a tank will not last long. Link to SRG Primus 341 SP
