    Has any one used one of these and what did u think?
    Seems if it works it would take the place of my electric 2 burner and
    pans as well as coffee pot and toaster...I don't drink coffee so the small pot 71bd4d82-9200-42fe-98b1-401ae6aecf31_1.0278408a62983e53c5a8f750ed6f6db1.jpeg

    Wow, I've never seen one of those. We drink LOTS of coffee so that would never fly for us.

    looks like it was invented for a Bed-Sitting Room apartment (one room only, bathroom down the hall)

    Looked at those when I was an OTR driver. Be alright for a couple as long as they aren't big coffee drinkers. We're migrating more toward off grid now, so it wouldn't be a good fit for us.

    Check with people you know that have attended college lately. It looks like something that would be useful in a dorm.

    I like the fact that it's contained & offers options in one unit; since i usually use my 1 cup Chulux or a Jet Boil 9if no electricity) at O dark thirty & hit the water at sun up, wife could fire up the coffee pot when she rolls out & have me an egg samich ready when I get back [8D]...looks like you might be able to cook a couple of small steaks p-chops etc on top as well, give a sit rep if you get one...

    Looks like something that was made in China by someone who lives in a bedroom apartment.

    The pot only takes 5 minutes to brew. So brew another pot, and another if need be. Not much different than a Keurig. We have a four cup pot at the house as well as a Keurig. The pot makes two cups, Keurig makes one. Still brewing over again.

    My son got me one for Christmas a couple of years ago, I love it I use it every time I go camping, it is great for 1 or two people and is perfect for Pebbles and I,

    I looked at something similar years ago, it was bigger and IIRC it ran on propane, might have been electric, I honestly can't remember... Instead of buying it, we just traded the pup in on a TT with an oven and larger fridge with a real freezer.. ;):D

    Tried & true breakfast station: 8" cast iron skillet with cast iron lid, and coffee percolator :)
    • Step 1: fill and set percolator on stove, you can skip this Firepit and grab a Mountain Dew :)
    • Step 2: toast English muffins in warm cast iron skillet. Remove muffins and butter.
    • Step 3: add around tablespoon of olive oil to cast iron skillet and toss in three slices of smoked ham or Canadian bacon. Brown for 3 minutes and remove.
    • Step 4: add one egg, break yoke and season and place lid on skillet. I like my egg fried, so it cooks for 4 minutes, flip and cook another couple of minutes. For sunny side up, reduce egg cook time and don't flip.
    • Step 5: assemble breakfast sandwich (English muffin, ham and egg) pour cup of coffee (or grab Mountain Dew) and enjoy :)

    Repeat daily :)

    For group camp: I have to step it up with a couple of flat cast iron griddles and usually at least three stoves going. And the ole Cowboy Coffee large pot comes out :)

    There's always plenty, all our welcome :)

    My trick on group camping is to stay in bed until i hear and smell everyone in the family cooking
    and when its done i step outside yawn... stretch... and hear the words i love so much.....

    I tend to stay away from multipurpose items like that grill oven. All it takes is for one of those items to go bad before it turns into a PITA.

    That is exactly what I was thinking.
