Please Note: As this unit draws 10 amps, we have found that the female plugs in a number of vehicles are different sizes and without a firm fit, this can cause overheating in the plug. For best results, this unit needs to be hard wired.

10A is a serious power draw, we suggest a large battery bank if you intend to use this oven while stationary and while not getting charge from the vehicle engine.

Ditch the flask of stewed tea and make a fresh brew on the trail. Or go further with hot soup or nutritious one-pot wonder. When you’ve got a checkpoint to make, painstakingly assembling your cooking system isn’t always an option.

An integrated system for fast boil times. A built-in heat exchanger and windshield minimises heat loss so your fuel goes that bit further.

All the Brukit’s bits can be stored inside its own pot, including a 100 g canister, so you have minimal components to juggle. The built-in Piezo ignitor makes lighting the Brukit faff-free; detachable rubberized handles and a neoprene cosy can be left on during cooking for easy handling. The included pan support makes the Brukit compatible with other pans too. Gas canister not included.
