Frontier Stove’s Controlled Open Flame Technology (COFT)
The Frontier Stove has many functions, to warm, to cook and to boil.
One of the many advantages of the Frontier camping stove is that it provides an area to cook directly on the flame to ensure maximum heat from the flame to the cooking pot add to this a flue damper you cant go wrong, whether you are out in the garden, the shed, by the lake or in the forest.
The adjustable door vent allows oxygen to be controlled to the fire and the flue damper controls the maximum amount of air allowed through the stove to increase fuel efficiency and heat.
The Frontier Stove is compact, lightweight and versatile and is perfect for any venue, camping, backyard, lakeside, shed you name it. It can produce enough heat to keep you warm in tipi tents or in a “man cave”, heat you up after a cold dip in the Atlantic and perfect to to extend your camping season and to extend your outdoor cooking season too
Frontier Stove Water Heater
The Frontier’s Water Heater boils and keeps water hot, or you can use any flat bottomed kettle to the heat plate. You can even remove the pot-hole to sit the kettle, or pan, directly in the way of the flame. There is a sliding top to add more water and a brass tap to pour yourself a nice cup of hot tea. Also ideal for washing up or for a cup of soup! The water heater wraps around the flue and sits directly on the stove top, works like a dream.
When using the stove for the very first time, we recommend that you vent your shed or tent is well. The initial manufacturers residue will burn off as soon as the stove heats up for the first time. I would even suggest you just start it up outside initially in the fresh air. A Carbon Monoxide (CO) alarm is recommended for enclosed spaces.
I always find this time of year the toughest, I think for me the worst part being an ex South African is not seeing enough sunlight in winter… this winter seems particularly bad and full of grey cold days…snow storm after snow storm… but there is always light at the end of the tunnel…
We recently shipped out a varanger camp to a customer in Ontario and received some really nice feed back and that is enough to make my day feel sunny and warm 🙂
Spent my first practice night in the tent in the backyard. Best sleep I’ve had in a long time. Only got down to about -18C so not yet a true test but certainly very comfortable. I left the tent up for a couple of days including a fairly major snowstorm and it was perfect.
Below is a photo of the top hat where the chimney exits, this vent can be opened or closed with the strings on the inside of the tent. You can also see the drying rack that comes with the tent, to hang dish cloths or socks etc.
You can also purchase additional racks below to hold your kettle or lights or boots 🙂
The above photo shows the inner tent with a frontier Stove for heat. Attached to the frontier stove is the water heater which is super nice to always have hot water on tap. The water is heated up via the chimney and works very well. Alternatively you can go for the more expensive Helsport stove below, which works extremely efficiently.
Here is a Helsport stove being used in the Valhall tent. This tent has a spacious vestibule room big enough to accommodate table and chairs in the middle and on either end can accommodate two inner tents for additional warmth in the winter camping months. It has 6 entries and two entries with mosquito netting. Because of the numerous guy lines, like the varanger, this tent too will stand up well in howling winter storms or summer wind and rain storms.
So come on out and lets play during these cold winter months, if you love camping why stop just because its winter, here are some really cool options to be able to stay warm and enjoy the outdoors when its chilly, snowing or raining…
