Trekmates is Camping Gadget of the Week

Flameless cooking is very big right about now.

Previously we did a post on another method of this cooking – the Heatstick (very popular with commandos and pseudo-commando campers).    Read about that gadget of the week here.

And now, there is another player in the field – Trekmates Flameless Cooking.

This is a cooking system all-in-one - no pans or extra stoves (though if you are into bulky stoves, check this one out)

And without a flame, well, its safe to use indoors, like your tent (and on a cold night or morning, that is a big plus in my books!)

The way it heats food is via a chemical heating pack. With the addition of water, the heating begins.

Trekmate says it will take about 7-10mins, and the heating process can go for 15mins – so if you need anything cooked longer than that  eg. lamb roast, then this is not the system for you.

If you think you have heard of flameless cooking like this before, well you probably have.

It’s been used by the military for rations for a long time, and depending on where you are, you could buy these rations with a heating pack, from an army surplus store.

If you want to get truly technical and know how it actually works, then I can’t tell you, but this site Zenstoves can provide all the details.

Video below that shows the concept in more detail (it has no sound)
