People have been cooking and grilling on open fires for many thousands of years , from early mankind right through the centuries on campfires, fireplaces, embers, and charcoal. Of course, over this time the tools and accessories used to cook over a flame have changed and evolved. Of course, some designs are so effective for their purpose that the basic design persists and can only be improved upon in terms of quality and attention to detail.

Petromax is a company known for its wide range of high-quality products and accessories for outdoor cooking and food preparation. From grills and cooking plates, to Dutch ovens and skillets, Petromax provides everything that you might need for cooking outside. A great aspect of the product range is that it has all been designed to work together so that different products can be combined with each other to provide a wide range of cooking options.

For example, we love using the Atago as a heat source for cooking on a griddle suspended from the Petromax Cooking Tripod , but the Atago itself is an unrivalled all-in-one tool that can be used as a conventional barbecue, a stove, an oven, and a fire pit and used with charcoal briquettes or firewood. The Petromax Atago can also be used in combination with a Dutch oven or a wok. Because the wok or the Dutch oven placed on top of the Atago is completely surrounded by stainless steel, the heat yield is very high, the Atago also comes with a grilling grate, which serves to transform it into a conventional barbecue.

Regular readers of the magazine will have seen the TURAS team preparing many a delicious meal over a Petromax Setup and we love these products so much that we have created our own permanent Petromax camp kitchen. Learn more about the range of Petromax Products on
