~ In-game description

The Gas Stove is a piece of equipment in DayZ Standalone. It is used in conjunction with Gas Canisters to cook food inside of a Cooking Pot or Frying Pan.

+ Pros[]

+ Does not take up additional inventory space when attached to or stored within a Frying Pan or Cooking Pot, giving you an easy Cooking option whilst on the move.

+ Does not need a Campfire Tripod to make use of Frying Pan or Cooking Pot.

+ Cooks as efficiently as a Fireplace without needing additional tools to acquire fuel and assemble a Fireplace Kit.

+ Does not require Matches or Hand Drill Kit to ignite or use.

+ Can be deployed on any surface, especially indoors to cook, whereas Fireplaces need specific location criteria.

+ Gives off significantly less light and smoke than a fire; thus concealing your position.

+ Portable source of heat to keep a player warm, especially when having to dry off after getting soaked in the rain.

+ A Cooking Pot that was recently heated will warm a player when placed in their inventory. Be careful to not overheat. The Gas Stove itself does not heat or damage a player.

- Cons[]

- Carrying around separate parts until they can be assembled can be quite inconvenient on Inventory space in the early game.

- Can only attach ONE x Frying Pan or Cooking Pot at a time whereas Stone Ovens and House Fireplaces can process 2+ utensils at a time.

- Without a Frying Pan or Cooking Pot, the stove is relatively useless as it does not allow the Long Wooden Stick Cooking method.

- Depending on the size of the attached Gas Canister; it will need replacing sometimes-forcing a player into towns eventually.

- With the inclusion of durability as of 1.17 all cookware degrades at a static rate while the cook time with a Gas Stove is quadrupled this means you use 4x as much of a Frying Pan or Cooking Pot's durability when cooking with one along with it taking 4x the time to cook items on a Gas Stove over a Fireplace.

Cooking with a Portable Gas Stove[]

  1. Combine a Gas Stove with a Gas Canister to create the appliance.
  2. Place the food you wish to cook into Frying Pan or Cooking Pot. Remember to check if your Pot has Water in it for your intended Cooking method!
  3. Attach the Frying Pan or Cooking Pot to the appliance either via the Inventory menu or holding it in your hand and clicking 'Attach'.
  4. Turn on and ignite looking at the stove, scrolling with mouse-wheel and choosing the option 'Turn On'. 'Turn Off' when finished in the same scroll menu. On consoles use the up d-pad to change the action to 'Switch On'.
