In the run-up to the test, we defined practical requirements and established the following test criteria:
- Scope of functions
In order to be able to evaluate these criteria, we have defined several tests for the camping cooking pots. First of all, the scope of delivery and functions are checked.
The pots are tested using camping cookers. In the first run, water is brought to the boil. The handling of the pot and safety are evaluated. A thermal imaging camera is used to record the heat distribution on the pot to see whether the pot can be easily moved with the hands during and after use. It is also checked whether the pot has a secure stand and to what extent it is versatile.
If the pot has several functions or accessories, these are tested in the second run. Here we cooked soup in all pots. The cleaning of all pots was done by hand.
The wearing comfort is also evaluated. In order to rule out mistakes and to ensure that the wearer is not subjected to the stress of everyday use, each test is carried out in several stages.
The test criteria are given percentages depending on their importance. The final mark is then objectively calculated from the test criteria using an algorithm.
Our product selection is based on the observation of the current market. In addition to popular brand products, we also include insider tips in our selection. Criteria such as price and range of functions are an important factor for us. The test field is also determined by analysis and evaluation of customer reviews and external tests (e.g. Stiftung Warentest).
The devices are purchased anonymously or lent to us by the manufacturer. Dealers and manufacturers have no influence on the tests and our evaluation.
As soon as new relevant products come on the market, our test field will be expanded to include them. The new products undergo the same tests as already tested devices.
