Best Portable Tabletop:
Jetboil Genesis Basecamp

If you’re the camper who’s leaving for a week and hiking to a new campsite every day or so, this camping stove is for you.

This portable, tabletop camping stove setup is compact, inclusive of cooking materials, and can even be configured to include a third burner. 

Jetboil is known for their backpacking stoves and their designs are sleek and minimalistic. They didn’t disappoint with the Genesis Basecamp. The ability to purchase an additional third burner with the same limited packing size is a huge plus.

Despite the steep sticker price close to $400, the minimalist design makes for a convenient on-the-go tabletop setup for fresh midday meals, hot coffee on a hike, or a new campsite every night with your crew.
