  1. […] This device promises to help with this problem. It consists of a round perforated metal base plate plus a number of flip up ‘arms’ designed to hold the bread at an angle to the heat source. The base sits on top of your standard camping stove and the idea is that the heat applied to the base will trickle up to nicely brown your toast. When not in use the arms fold in for easy storage. Gelert folding toast rack A minor problem experienced in our test is that the arms can spring loose and it then takes a bit of thinking to refit them correctly. Our advice is to take a quick look at the assembled device before use so you know how it fits back together! So, does it work? No. Simple as that. Once we figured out how to stop the arms springing away we rigged it on top of a small camping stove at full blast and waited. Then we waited some more. After 5 minutes the bread was only slightly warm so we gave up. It would go stale before it toasted properly! The camping toaster gets another raspberry because the arms don’t fold flat properly when you try and store it. Conclusion A pretty poor showing from the camping toaster. If you want a nice slice of bread with your food then we strongly recommend getting a double burner stove with a dedicated grill. We recently reviewed the Campingaz Chef stove which has exactly these features so click here to read our review on this much better toaster! […]
