Outdoor cooking just got easier with Stove In A Can

stoveinacan logo

This is the neatest outdoor product! Stove In A Can – it’s the portable stove… in a can! Created by Firefly Innovations, this self-contained cooking fire kit is the perfect product to have on hand for cooking emergencies! 

The kit comes with four fuel cells that will each burn for about an hour. They burn HOT, you can cook anything from pancakes to coffee to a big cast iron pot {it holds up to 300lbs, wow!} of soup on this Stove In A Can! It’s even a great way to roast marshmallows like we did for our picnic last weekend!

I know it made Chris happy! Using this campfire alternative meant that he didn’t have to go out into the woods for an hour looking for enough fallen dry wood to start a fire with. {He just had to go find the roasting sticks!}

Stove In A Can

Stove In A Can is super easy to use, anyone can do it!

You just place the included metal cooking ring into the bottom of the can, place one fuel cell {wrapped or unwrapped} on top of the ring and light it with one of the included matches. The fuel cell catches quickly and without effort — you’ll have a hot fire started and ready to cook with in seconds. Boiled water is only 5 minutes away!

Another thing I am please about is that the fuel cells are completely organic and non-toxic {of course, never use any open flame indoors to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning}.

This sounds crazy but I also read that the fuel cells can be completely submerged underwater and will still light immediately after removing them from water an shaking off! How cool is that? 

Stove In A Can emergency cooking

We think Stove In A Can would be great for so many uses! Each kit weighs only 2.75 lbs so it’s easy to pack and take along when you’re camping, hiking, tailgating or just want to have it available for emergencies in your basement or car trunk.

Oh, and just in case you were wondering, the fuel cells gave off no odor and left behind absolutely no aftertaste on the marshmallows we roasted!

The 4 fuel cell kit retails for about $29.99 – 34.99 and you can also purchase refill fuel cells.
