Friendly disclaimer: These products are in various stages of development, so you’ll have to be patient about receiving them. Crowdfunding isn’t shopping, and it can sometimes take months to receive a perk from a campaign you’ve backed. 

FireTower Foldable Rocket Stove

Any camper will tell you: No matter how small your camp stove, many designs still require you to bring along a bulky fuel canister to get the flame going. Rocket stoves are a great alternative because they’re designed to be used with twigs, sticks, and other biofuels. The FireTower is an innovative take on the rocket stove. Its design and shape create natural airflow in the stove, which means there is no need for batteries or fans to make the fire burn well. And the angle of the fueling pipe makes it easy to refuel, even while cooking. It’s also lightweight and can fold down to the size of a small book, making it a great choice for backpackers. 

SimpleReal Collapsible Stainless Steel Cookware

You’re going to need some foldable cookware to go with that foldable stove. SimpleReal’s camping pot can hold over a liter of food, yet collapses down to a small disc for easy storage and portability. It’s made of heavy-duty stainless steel that’s only 3 centimeters thick and comes with a detachable handle and a versatile storage bag. Got leftovers? The silicone top allows you to easily put the rest of your food away. It’s also sturdy and durable: the patented latches and leakproof silicone gaskets keep the pot’s structure strong and heavy-load resistant. Once the latches are locked in place, you won’t need to worry about the cookware collapsing while cooking meals or carrying leftovers in your backpack.

ROTO-Q 360 self-rotates, automating the entire rotisserie process so that all you need to do is set it up, turn it on, and let it do its job.

This collapsable rotisserie is only 5.5 pounds, making it easy to carry in a backpack to wherever an outdoor adventure might take you. And if your adventures are keeping you indoors for now, the ROTO-Q 360 can be used in your oven to create juicy rotisserie for a cozy gameday treat.
