Made to survive!
Trekking and outdoor activities present a host of challenges. Whoever takes on these challenges expects their equipment to be completely reliable - wherever, whenever. Ever since Esbit invented solid fuel and the outdoor cooker in 1936, the Hamburg family business has been acting on this principle in all of its product development - and enjoys international recognition as a result. Consistent further development, simple, straightforward engineering, user-friendly innovations, unquestionable quality - this is the secret behind the success of Esbit.
Stainless steel is a collective term for rustproof steel. It is much more resistant to corrosion than non-alloyed steels. Stainless steel does not deteriorate, and is hygienic, UV-resistant, non-corroding, fracture-proof, non-toxic and environmentally friendly. It does not weather and can be recycled in its entirety, even after many years. Technically, the term "stainless steel" refers to corrosion-resistant steel alloys with a wide variety of compositions but always containing a high percentage of chromium (usually a minimum of 10.5%)
Stainless steel should be cleaned regularly like all other materials, especially after exposure to salty air (near the coast), and also at regular intervals.
Water can easily collect in corners, edges and screw connections, resulting in corrosion. So careful cleaning is important, and if necessary screws should be undone in order to clean the parts thoroughly.
Do not leave rusty steel parts against stainless steel to avoid the rust "contamination".
ESBIT XS Coffee Maker
Esbit Coffee Maker:
Esbit has followed an old tradition and once again produced a travel coffee maker that runs on Esbit solid fuel. Its predecessor, Model 66, has been carried by many campers, bikers and hikers for decades.
Today's version is made of high-grade stainless steel, and in its current design, it makes around 200 ml of coffee. The coffee maker boils the water using two 4 g fuel tablets from Esbit, which fit in the black-painted steel frame.
Of course, the frame stows away inside the coffee maker when not in use to keep the pack size as small as possible.
Practical, compact, lightweight and high-quality - plus some retro nostalgia for good measure!
