On the way in the mountains. Icy gusts of wind. Clammy fingers. Warm tea. A fortifying soup. Conscious handling of one’s fluid balance in such weather condition is important. Pack size and equipment weight, however, are reduced to a minimum.

Developed by Patrick Beutler (ETHZ) and Tobias Pestalozzi (ZHdK), Peakboil combines the conventional thermos flask with a kettle for outdoor use. When cooking outdoors, it is important to protect the open flame from the harsh environmental conditions to ensure as little heat as possible escapes. The innovative bottle cooker and its integrated boiler supports energy-saving water boiling: The combustion process in its closed chamber takes place independently of external influences and thus enables constant heat output. This is made possible by the use of metal 3D pressure. The gas-operated system is designed for pouring hot water over foodstuffs and combines innovative technology with user-friendliness even under adverse conditions.
