Dietz Lantern/Cooker
« on: September 09, 2017, 04:06:11 AM »
I came across this while looking at the Dietz lanterns. Seems it might be useful if bugging in and power is out or at a BOL. Not a stand alone solution certainly but possibly useful in addition to other things.

  I have seen something like this many years ago, cool find .
Why is it that the same people who use science to convince you of Global Warming,refuse DNA Science that proves you are male or female.

Government solves few problems that it does not first create.

Stop complaining about life and start Celebrating it .

If you had only one year,one month,or one day...Would you live your life differently?

They are good for warming soup, coffee, tea, etc. But I wouldn't call it a cooker.

It's a bit small but might be fine for one person.

     Looks a little "wobbly" to me; a lapful of boiling water could ruin your day.

That will never develop enough heat to cook a person.... :spit:

WTKirkman.com carries Dietz lanterns as well, the 'cooker' is going for $34.95  It looks like they are now dealing thru Amazon which wasn't the case last I checked. Check out their website, they also sell a plate to clip on top of a #80 lantern which is a larger lantern than the cooker and throws off more light and heat.

  If you use this type of light,it is a workable option for warm drinks and resurrecting freeze dried foods.I use LED lighting and it does not heat as good as this.

I like stuff like this..getting every use possible out of a tool, and no your not doing a rack of ribs with it but it has a use.

I looked at that WT Kirkman site. Appears they are having some sort of sale on Dietz products.
