Best travel stove on the go. Requires no fuel except twigs, sticks, pine cones, etc and charges your cell phone to boot.

Check out the biolite camp stove.  They are coming out with a homestove in the future.


For now this one is extremely portable and cooks without fuel other than renewable sources like sticks, pine cones, etc

Baking and cooking without power or gas

What is the best way to secure a reliable source of heat for cookery in the event of absence of power or piped gas?

Obviously a camping stove with a gas cannister would be useful, but I'm wondering whether it is possible to obtain a wood and/or coal fired stove which will serve for both frying and baking, so a burner, a hob and an oven. The ability to bake seems very important to maintain a good diet. Ideally this machine will also provide a good source of heating.
