Petromax is well known for its wide range of 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.
THE PETROMAX GRIDDLE AND FIRE BOWL
The high-quality griddle and firebowl is a multipurpose steel plate with removable legs that can be used to cook up your favourite camp meal and can then be used as a fire pit to keep you warm on those chilly nights. The fire bowl is also designed in a way that you can cook your food at different temperatures with the centre of the bowl giving the most heat and allowing you to cook other foods slower around the edges of the plate on the generous space provided. If you don’t want to cook with the legs on, no drama you can simply place the fs48 and fs56 plates on the Petromax Atago and cook away without worrying about scorching the ground.
The Petromax Griddle and Fire Bowl comes in three sizes the fs38, fs48 and the larger fs56, all three come with a high quality bag for storage and with the two handles this product is very easy to handle. The three attachable legs can be screwed into the thread bushings on the bottom of the plate ensuring that the griddle stands safely on the ground, the removable legs makes this product a breeze to transport in the back of your vehicle, camper trailer or caravan.
PETROMAX WROUGHT IRON PAN
We first started using the Petromax Wrought Iron Pans in our outdoor kitchen at the beginning of one summer and they have become the go-to pans since then. They are very easy to use, heating up quickly and evenly, particularly over an open flame. It’s worth mentioning that the pans are very heavy so ideally, you shouldn’t have to move them around much when cooking. We have ours permanently in our outdoor kitchen so at hands reach when we need them. They have a long handle which is good to balance the weight but it can get very hot in cooking, so always use oven gloves when moving it from the heat. Ours has just gotten better the more we use it, it’s the go-to pan for cooking a nice steak and there is great satisfaction cooking on a pan that doesn’t stick.
THE PETROMAX FIREPLACE FB1 AND FB2
These boxes are a great lightweight option to bring along on camping trips. The flat packing box is made from stainless steel and is easy to assemble and take apart, it is very lightweight and comes in its own tough carrying case.You can put the Fireplace together in a couple of minutes with a few simple steps and then safely light a fire which is protected from the wind and also helps to prevent any burnt patches. The grille on top allows you to cook or heat water, or make coffee. We often use the Fireplace to brew coffee with the Petromax Perkomax coffee percolator.
The precise cuts in the steel serve as expansion joints and also supply the fire with air, the Fireplace does not become distorted even at very high temperatures.
On of our favorite pieces of camp cooking equipment are Dutch Ovens (Cast Iron Pot). We often cook our camp food in them and that includes, fresh bread, roasts, stews, baked potatoes and vegetables and much more. It has been the focal point of many a great camping trip over the years and hopefully many more to come.
Dutch Ovens are made to last and have been used for hundreds of years, both by pioneers exploring new lands and found hanging over open fires in homes where bread and hearty meals were cooked for the entire family. The Petromax Dutch Ovens are ideal companions for outdoor activities such as travel, camping etc. Perfect for cooking over an open fire and in the home kitchen, they allow cooking food such as vegetables and meat very gently in its own juice. They feature a specially designed lid that can be used as a skillet or a platter.
The Petromax Dutch Ovens are made of durable cast-iron and have a pre-seasoned finish ready for immediate use. With the Petromax Dutch Ovens, one can prepare delicious and healthy food for family friends and the beauty about these is that they can be integrated with the Atago, giving you plenty of additional cooking options.
