ooking outdoors is easy with a trangia outdoor stove. The stove’s unique construction allows you to cook a delicious meal in any kind of weather, including strong winds and the extreme cold. Its simple, tried-and-tested design – without unnecessary details that can break or be affected by the cold – make it incredibly reliable. That it is easy to put together and takes minimal space in your backpack has also contributed to its enduring popularity among outdoor enthusiasts over the decades. THE KEY TO THE TRANGIA system is its two-part windshield. The windshield’s construction keeps the burner a certain distance from the ground, ensures good oxygen feed and provides a stable platform that keeps pots and pans steady. It makes sure the heat moves up around the pot, ensuring maximum fuel efficiency. All these factors contribute to excellent efficiency and short cooking times, even in high winds. THE CONSTRUCTION of the windshield and other components of the stove has been optimised so that the entire stove set can be packed away with two saucepans, a frypan, coffee pot and burner making a convenient package. This makes it easy to keep track of all the parts and pack it into your backpack. AT TRANGIA, WE SPEAK FONDLY of our spirit burner as we believe spirits to be the most versatile fuel, but our Trangia stoves are also compatible with gas, multifuel and gel burners. You can read more about these different types of fuel and their properties on page 12-13.
