A quick look into anthropology and one will easily find that man has been cooking with fire for millennia. Fire has always held an important place in human existence and will continue to do so.
Self Reliance Outfitters also recognizes the value of an open fire and its ability to preserve life—on this very premise they have assembled the Stainless Steel Bottle Cooking Kit.
This practical and affordable cooking kit provides everything you would ever need to cook or disinfect water in a survival situation or while on an outdoor adventure.
Review: Stainless Steel Bottle Cooking Kit
When considering the purchase of a cooking kit there are key features that must be included for any kit to truly be a ‘survival’ cooking kit. The Self Reliance Outfitters cooking kit is without question one of the best ‘survival’ cooking kits on the market—here’s why.
1. GEN3 Pathfinder Stainless Steel 32oz. Bottle & Cup Set
The heart of the Stainless Steel Bottle Cooking Kit is its 32 oz. stainless steel bottle and 25 oz. stainless cup. Crafted from 304 food grade stainless steel, the bottle & cup are no ordinary pieces of survival gear. Built to withstand direct fire these quality pieces provide the ability to cook or disinfecting water anywhere.
A bonus feature of the stainless bottle is its wide mouth design. Unlike traditional water bottles that require you to get water from a plentiful water supply, the wide mouth design makes it easy to obtain water from a shallow water source.
Another pleasant feature is the bottle & cup marriage. This unique feature allows the bottle to nest inside the cup and offers compact storage of both components.
2. Pathfinder Stainless Steel Bottle Stove
Also included in the cooking kit is the Pathfinder Stainless Steel Bottle Stove. This compact stove is also crafted from 304 food grade stainless steel and is designed to nest with the bottle and cup. The bottle, cup and stove make for a compact all-in-one unit that provides the necessary basics for cooking or boiling.
3. Ferrocerium Rod – Fire Starter
