We have long invested in the development of environmentally friendly and fuel-efficient stoves with our ETA-technology. But you as a user can also do a lot to reduce your carbon footprint and your environmental impact when you are out on adventures.
Here are ten ways to save on both the environment, fuel and money.
- Put the lid on. Boiling goes faster with a lid.
- Aluminum pots with heat exchanger is the most efficient. Together they shorten both boiling time and fuel consumption by about a third.
- Choose food that cooks quickly. Such as spaghetti or other pasta.
- Small pieces are better. Divide the food into small pieces that cooks quicker.
- Don't go all the way to boiling. Allow food to finish up on the after heat, feel free to use the insulation bag.
- Reduce the effect. When using a maximum of about 3/4 of the heat of the stove you take advantage of the energy in the best way.
- Protect the stove from the wind. Place it out of the wind and use the wind screen.
- Gas is good. Gas needs no preheating and is more efficient than liquid fuels.
- Save the heat. If you get an excess of hot water, save it in a vacuum flask for the next meal or a cup of tea.
- The right combination gives the best effect. Do not use a small pan on a large burner.
Happy Efficient Cooking!
