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.

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.

Cool
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.
