The Trangia principle
Outdoor cooking is easy when you use a Trangia
stove. The unsurpassed Trangia principle makes cooking
possible in all weather conditions – even high winds and
severe cold. The stoves are lightweight and they need no
special care as they are hardwearing. The Trangia stove
is reliable, without unnecessary parts that can break or be
adversely affected by cold, plus it is quick to set up, and
packs into a compact unit that takes up minimal space.
• The heart of the storm-proof stove system is the two-
part windshield. The ventilation holes in the lower
windshield are directed into the wind to increase the
oxygen supply to the burner.
• The stove stands stable, with the pan on the supports
recessed into the upper windshield. The supports are
turned upwards when the frypan is used.
• It is a good idea to light the burner before putting the
upper windshield in position.
• The combined frypan/lid can be put on top of the pan
to speed up heating and save fuel.
• The Trangia spirit burner runs on Tenol, methylated
spirits or liquid bioethanol fuels, which are cheap, safe
and readily available.
