Introducing Australia’s first and ONLY true “FLAT PACK” rocket stove made right here in Australia by SLOT ME IN™, the all new SLOT ME IN™ Aussie Rocket Stove XP™ using 100% Aussie materials.
Now rocket stoves have been around for a very long time and come in all shapes and sizes, from the smallest of structures to large cumbersome cooking stoves, all very bulky and space consuming and not something you would generally take away camping . However here at SLOT ME IN™ we have added our touch to the “rocket stove” by making it a TRUE and total “FLAT PACK” one that assembles with NO TOOLS OR FIXINGS REQUIRED and simply “SLOTS” together in under a minute, after all that’s what we are best known for having invented the first “FLAT PACK” fire pit & camp cooker THE WEDGE FIRE PIT & CAMP COOKER™ way back in the 1970’s.
The SLOT ME IN™ Aussie Rocket Stove XP™ is made by us at SLOT ME IN™ using BlueScope XLERPLATE™ TRU-SPEC™ 2mm thick steel. The assembled rocket stove weighs just 3kg and stands 315mm high x 250mm wide (logo side on) x 85mm wide (facing the “fuel feed” & “air intake” chutes) when assembled, with an impressive cookware support diameter of 230mm.
SLOT ME IN™ Aussie Rocket Stove XP™ overview.
Being a flat pack design means the SLOT ME IN™ Aussie Rocket Stove XP™ won’t take up valuable space in your 4x4, camper trailer, caravan, vehicle or even a touring motor bike. In fact it will fit in the smallest of spaces like under your seat or even in the glove box of some vehicles.
At only 3kg the SLOT ME IN™ Aussie Rocket Stove XP™ is light enough to put in your backpack and take anywhere with you on your next adventure, whether BACKYARD, BUSH or BEYOND™.
QUALITY & MATERIAL
The SLOT ME IN™ Aussie Rocket Stove XP™ is precision laser cut from Australia’s finest BlueScope XLERPLATE™ TRU-SPEC™ 2mm thick steel to ensure they are robust and durable for their intended use giving you trouble free service. Considerable research, development and testing by us and in consultation also with metallurgists at BlueScope Steel lead us to our steel of choice.
COOK MORE WITH LESS FUEL
The unique design of the SLOT ME IN™ Aussie Rocket Stove XP™ produces exceptional heat with very little fuel. An entire meal can be cooked with just a handful of sticks, twigs or even bark, thanks to our unique “Air Chute Ratio” design.
HOW IT WORKS
The SLOT ME IN™ Aussie Rocket Stove XP™ is a hot burning rocket stove requiring only a small amount of solid fuel to produce a great amount of heat. The fuel can be dry plant matter such as sticks, twigs, bark and even leaves. It consists of a combined vertical “chimney” and angled but divided “air chute” and “fuel feeder”. The chimney creates a “draft” which draws fresh air into the combustion chamber beneath the burning fuel via the air chute.
The air is preheated as it travels through the air chute to the combustion chamber, which maintains a higher combustion temperature. This along with the draft of the chimney leads to a cleaner burn and ensures almost complete combustion prior to the flames reaching the cooking surface.
DIMENSIONS & DESIGN
Small enough to go anywhere yet big enough to cook an entire meal for the whole family on the SLOT ME IN™ Aussie Rocket Stove XP™ stands 315mm high x 250mm wide (side on) x 85mm wide (facing the “fuel feed” and “air intake” chutes) with an impressive cookware support diameter of 230mm when fully assembled.
Packed “FLAT” it is just over 10mm (1cm) “THIN”, an incredible space saver taking up next to no room in your 4x4, camper trailer, caravan, vehicle or touring motor bike.
Its unique design incorporates a series of “slots” and “tags” and requires NO TOOLS OR FIXINGS FOR ASSEMBLY going together in UNDER 1 MINUTE. There are 10 pieces in all with each having its own distinct coupling (slot & tag position) to ensure simple assembly so it goes together with a minimum of fuss every time. Put simply each part has only one position it can fit in so there can be no mix ups or confusion when it comes to assembly.
A very handy feature on the SLOT ME IN™ Aussie Rocket Stove XP™ is the removable sliding base plate. When the fire has finished and cooled down after use you simply slide it out to clear the combustion chamber of any ash. This eliminates tipping and shaking the assembled unit upside down. There are also 2 handy tag holes in this base plate on each side that can be pinned to soft ground using 2 small tent pegs providing a secure cooking stove platform.
The SLOT ME IN™ Aussie Rocket Stove XP™ consists of 10 pieces that come “flat packed” and packaged with assembly instructions.
USES & VERSATILITY
The SLOT ME IN™ Aussie Rocket Stove XP™ can be used for a variety of cooking and heating purposes. You can boil the billy for a cuppa on it or for some hot water to wash up the dishes with after cooking a meal on it prior, using an array of cookware on it such as fry pans, skillets, hot plates and the like.
It uses very minimal solid fuel and as such will be a great asset when out camping helping conserve fuel and eliminating the need for disposable butane fuel cylinder type camp cookers.
OPTIONS & EXTRAS
A heavy duty quality Aussie canvas storage bag with Velcro sealing top is available to purchase separately. This is perfect for keeping the SLOT ME IN™ Aussie Rocket Stove XP™ parts safely in when travelling or when it’s not in use.
