Aussie All weather Cookset Test

Post by Ridgerunner » Sat May 24, 2008 11:28 pm

I just recently purchased this new cookset on ebay. It is made in Austraila and looks to be similar to a Sigg tourister Cookset. The Aluminum is light and the burner feels to be lighter than the trangia burner. The burner does not come with a simmer attachment.

The three test burns were done with 1/2 ounce denatured alcohol, 42 degree water/ 2 cups, in a controlled enviroment.

The first two test achieved a boil at the 7:30 mark and flame out at 8:45
The third test achieved a boil at 7:40 and flame out at the 9 minute mark.

looks to be about the same size but looks cheaper in quality but that might be why it feels lighter. I will do a comparison tomorrow. ;)

I'll be using my Muffin ring Baker at the end of June. I'm headed to the upper peninsula to the Copper Mining Keweenaw area with my daughter to do some camping/hiking/rock collecting.

I'm heading up there in October. A friend of mine has a cabin around Big Twin Lake for some camping, hiking, and fishing. I've never been up there but look forward to it. ;)

Big Twin Lake, I'll google it and see where it is. Maybe I'll plan for a later trip also ;)

A good find Ridgrunner,

I have not seen one of these "Aussie All weather Cooksets" in my local camping shops, I have just done a search and only found one shop in Perth that stocks them and they are out of stock.

I will keep looking
