Table top stoves are available in a variety of different sizes, as well as there be versions for indoor use and camping use. The most basic table top stoves are the ones used for camping. Those are generally gas powered ones with one or two jobs. These will tend to be put on camping tables in order to rest on an even surface area. The camping versions are more portable than those used inside.
Table top stoves that are meant for indoor use have scope to be larger. They are electrical and can have up to four parts to their hobs. Some of the more expensive makes could even be classed as mini ovens as they have ovens too. Table top stoves and mini stoves tend to be used in homes or apartments that have small kitchens as they take up less space than full sized ovens. Some people buy them if more things need to be cooked than in an oven or on hobs.
