Just because you are camping does not mean that you can’t enjoy some delicious meals. The Skottle camping stove allows you to cook the same way you do at home, even while camping in remote destinations. Its unique and versatile design lets you cook a variety of dishes all on one platform.

When the farmers in South Africa needed a way to cook outdoors in the fields, they found a solution. They used an old disc plow and attached legs to it. This gave them a nice, sturdy cooking surface that they could carry with them. They called it a skottle, and these skottles are still frequently used today in South Africa.

ORIS has taken the basic skottle design and developed a refined version that you can use on all your camping trips. It is extremely easy to transport, yet one of the most versatile camping stoves available. No longer does your camping stove have to be just a single burner that you can place a pot on. The Skottle camping stove gives you a variety of options in cooking surface and configuration.

This stove comes equipped with a 17-inch cast iron cooking surface. This allows you to cook eggs and bacon for breakfast and chicken fried rice for dinner. The combinations of food that you can cook on this surface are almost endless. You will never get bored with camping food again. Put on your chef’s hat and try different recipes on the cast iron.

Need to boil water for coffee or cook something in a pot? No worries! The cast iron cooking surface is easily removable without any tools. Simply remove the thumb screws and you can take it right off. Now you have a single burner for use with pots and pans. And if you’re cooking for a crowd, the ORIS Skottle can handle that too.
