Excellent way to mix up those tired freeze-dried meals.
- Ligh weight
- More fuel consumption
I am a gear junkie, always looking for new ways to spice up my trips. So I decided to give this a go. I have added it to my go-to kitchen gear and never looked back.
What I like: Easy to set up and use. Holds heat in well and great for meals for 2 to 3 people.
Best if used on 3 to 5 day trips, unless you have the luxury of not worrying about pack weight (fuel).
I would suggest making a few meals at home first, as it is tricky to get the timing right. Best if used with a simmering stove butane like the MSR Whisperlite.
What I do not like: The edges are a bit sharp and if they get a bit bent (just fits in a small barrel) when closed the lid can be hard to pull apart.
Tips: Cut parchment paper at home and keep for use in the field. Makes clean up easy and it's burnable.
My favourite recipe (long trips): chocolate brownie cake with peanut butter and banana ( all items are dehydrated)
My favourite recipe (car camping/ shorter trips): fresh garlic bruschetta with basil and tomato feta.
