Although single burner stoves are the most popular of all because of their portability, it varies from person to person. For instance, if you have a number of people then you might require more than one burner to make things quick. Nature of the food that you eat also depends on the number of burners you need. Some of us will prefer carrying canned foods on trips. In such case, you will need a stove only to boil something or heat some sort of food. On the other hand, if you are planning a lavish dinner on your way to camp, then one burner is not going to solve the purpose.

In such cases, checking if the stove has more heat output is more important compared to a number of burners. Suppose you got a two burner stove but the flames emitted are too low, then it is not of any use for you. On the other hand, a single burner stove which has a very high flame output will cook the food swiftly. Obviously, if you are buying a big stove, it will be heavier to carry and will take more room in your bag. Because of the shape, some stoves will take more space in your bag pack. Alternatively, you can go for the stove that can be disassembled or reassembled.
