Fifty Sense Seal of Approval Flash Cooking System

This handy little heating system does just what it advertises – fast, easy water heating in a small, convenient package. The 1.0 liter container even has a 2 cup mark on the inside to make measurement fast and easy. Speaking of fast, the stainless steel burner brings that 2 cups of water to a boil in 2 minutes or less, even in a strong breeze.

With a little experience, you can even gauge the heat of the contents by the color-changing heat indicator on the outside of the container. No matches required – the piezo electric start feature works just great. This would be a great system to keep in the car for those occasions when you want a hot cup of tea, coffee or chocolate along the way.


Now here’s a heating system as useful car-camping as backpacking. Starting with the large 2 liter capacity FluxRing pot. This is an extremely stable cooking system using the inverted fuel cell for efficiency and the pot fits snugly into the burner base.

Even the fuel cell is supported by it’s own tripod stabilizer. The windscreen is easy to attach and allows the pot to bring the 2 liters to a boil in less than 2 minutes. The cozy wrapping the pot makes it safer to use than most lightweight alternatives. Everything stacks nicely within itself and only weighs 28 oz. The push button start is another big plus.
