9 Best Carp Gas Stoves - The Carp Hideout

9 Best Carp Gas Stoves

What is the best carp gas stove in 2019?

In the past, I’ve often thought a stove is just a stove, but after reviewing 9 of the best carp stoves, I’ve changed my mind!

First, you should buy one that is going to be stable, so it won’t fall over, even during strong winds or pouring rain.

Secondly, the gas canisters for your stove should be readily available to buy – and cheap!

Finally, especially during the depths of winter, you should consider buying a thick cover for your canister, because cold gas will yield a poor flame, making boiling water a drawn out affair (from previous experience!)

Trakker Armolife CG-3 Stove

Super-stable, and highly efficient, the Trakker Armolife CG-3 Stove has a power output of 3500w, which above the normal power of 3000 found on most other carp gas stoves.

The wide frame allows a good sized kettle or pan to be placed, with heat directing to where it should.

It is this wider angled frame that gives this stove a low centre of gravity, making it stable throughout use.

Tubing, from gas to stove, is oversized which dramatically improves efficiency and gas combustion, allowing you to get a decent amount of ‘cooking hours’ per canister.

Because of this wider preheat tube, performance does not dwindle in cold weather either.

To finish off this excellent gas stove, the legs can be folded for a compact design that can slip into a dedicated cookware bag, or rucksack.

In my opinion, this one of the best carp gas stoves on the market currently.


Oversized pre-heat tube for ultra-efficient gas combustion
Piezo-electronic ignition system to base of stove
Wide frame and low centre of gravity for increased stability of cookware
Ultra-strong, easy to use and very quick to assemble
Comes complete with nylon carry bag


Material: Aluminium alloy, copper alloy, stainless steel
Weight: 381g
Dimensions: 9cm x 9.5cm (folded)
Max power output: 3500W

Chub Foldable Gas Stove

Part of the Vantage range, the Chub Foldable Gas Stove is compact and easy to use.

Three leg supports offer good staility, and the heat source is strong and concentrated, giving you a boil time of just a few minutes.

The unit itself is made from a mix of aluminium, steel and copper, and comes with a large stove plate suitable for a large sized kettle.

It’s the folding capabilities that really make this stand out amongst others, perhaps making it the ideal carp stove for short sessions?

With a power output of 3000W, there is more than enough juice to make a brew and fix dinner on the bank.

During colder weather, a separate ignition can give the flame a much needed boost to make boiling time quicker!

Easy to pack and carry
Stable leg supports
Extremely concentrated
Fires up to 3000W
Separate ignition

The sturdy legs are small enough to pack away into a carryall or cookware bag.

Power output is 3200W, and you connect EN417 Butane-Propane mixed gas cartridges which cost around 3 for a tenner – bargain!

Designed to be compact, it folds away ready to be stored for your next fishing trip.

Similar to a few stoves on the market, there is a Piezo starter ignition, so no need to fiddle around with a lighter to get it going.

A great all round carp stove that won’t break the bank either!

Wychwood Tactical Carp Gas Stove

The Wychwood Tactical Stove is compact, and very efficient at boiling water!

Utilising a unique folding mechanism, this means you can fit this into the smallest spaces in your luggage.

To get started, each leg can be twisted out and locked into place, making it very stable – even in strong winds.

This makes a great platform for your kettle and saucepans.

Components include stainless steel, copper and aluminium, which keeps the carp stove light, but strong.

Some burners can be total rubbish, and Wychwood have opted to use a burner that boasts a high thermal efficiency. 

This means that your gas will last longer, saving you money, and your kettle will boil quicker.

I totally agree, and I would regard this as one of the best carp gas stoves around at the moment.

Our second Trakker carp stove is the Armolife Mercury, which is for anglers who prefer a screw system, as opposed to a standalone unit.

Lightweight, and compact, it screws directly onto your gas canister. 

It is also very stable, and the arms can extend to support a wide range of kettle bases and saucepans.

As per the CG-3 stove, this comes equipped with a Piezo ignition system, great for getting cooking in bad weather where a lighter can be tricky to use!

As I said at the start, if you prefer a screw down style stove, this could be for you.

Comes complete with nylon carry bag
