Brukit- Rapid boiling stove £29.75 at Alpkit

Found 18th Sep 2015
This will appeal to anyone who wants a rapid boiling light weight stove. This stove is seen as a credible alternative to the more expensive jetboil.
Typically the brukit sells for £35 but now it is discounted to £29.75 as part of an end of season sale.

From their blurb

'BruKit is an integrated grab and go cooking system requiring minimal setup where everything you need can be contained in a single pot.

Think of all those occasions where you have had to make do with a stewed Thermos and think how much better it would be if you could have quickly made a fresh brew or nutritious soup for your lunch. Keep one in the back of your Landy, take one to the river bank or become the envy of your mates on your building site this winter with a mug of piping hot Earl Grey!

This closed system gives a fast boil time thanks to a built in heat exchanger and windshield which makes sure heat goes into your food rather than into outerspace. With this greater efficiency you can go further and carry less. BruKit excels at heating water fast and rehydrating dried food, a dream come true for anyone setting out on their DofE expedition. A neoprene pot cosy can be left on the pot during cooking making it easier to handle the pot and keep your meal warmer longer.'

Anyone actually used one of these? I've always wanted a Jetboil but didn't fancy selling the car to fund it - so this looks like it could be an option..... If it's any good!

Great find, checked out youtube, just as good as jetboil. have some heat8)

I've used one for the summer. Brilliant bit of kit.
Only downside is some gas cans don't fit inside it so its not as sleek as it could be.

Really worth having though.

Got one of these as well and its brilliant ! Boils very quickly. Same feedback on some gas canisters not fitting ! Hot

Any recommendations on gas cannisters that do fit?

Cheers

I use the Coleman 250g gas but the lid does not fit 100% tight but the canister fits perfectly inside the Brukit. if you want to make sure then try gooutdoors.co.uk/cal…468 as the 100g cans are much shorter.

I work on building sites a fair bit and if I whipped one of these out and brewed up and Earl Grey they'd die laughing

I've got the jet boil using a 100g cannister boils water in just over 2 minutes brilliant peice of kit just wish it came with self lighting rather than trying to light it in the wind which can be a pain!

Love Alpkit.

Ive got one of their Kraku stoves amongst other things, great bit of kit.

They have an end of summer sale on, fair few reductions to be had.

Delivery for end of August. Is that a joke?

Personally I prefer a Ghille Kettle and not relying on canisters.

Just spoken with Alpkit, 'in stock ready for immediate dispatch'. Ordered one cheers OP.

There are only really any use for boiling water - I tried to do pasta in a jet boil when abroad for a couple of weeks (was the only stove I brought) - challenging to say the least, but crispy pasta is fine if its all you can get.

​If it can boil water then why would it struggle to cook pasta?

These are well worth the money - I took it mine on a trip to the Alps - it worked great.[url=]Your text here[/url]

Which is exactly why God invented Pot Noodle

​If it can boil water then why would it struggle to cook pasta?



It's due to the limited space for water in the container. It makes it much more efficient than a standard pan/lid combo but means you can't really but anything else in with the water.
I always take one with me on trips; if you double it up with a standard stove you can knock out dinner in half the time.

God help you all when the SHTF! I'll stick to my flint striker, knife and bushcraft knowledge thanks.

Are these much bigger than jetboils? it looks like it.

I would buy this one but it seems a bit big, even at its previous price.

However, when SHTF it's also nice to have different choices based on availability, & whether or not you are strong enough at that current time to gather materials that get gleaned.

I have a bit of kit ( crud camp stove & gas cannisters) behind the kickboard of my kitchen cabinets ..like I say, variety, I also have a useable woodburning stove, woodgas campstove, flints & strikers, as well as a box of regular disposable lighters, easy enough to store semi hidden. & they don't go off.

Heat, it's Alpkit & they excel

About the same size as a JetBoil - I have the JetBoil pot support in use on mine and it fits just about perfectly. Very quick to boil water and does have an ignition although mine failed very soon after purchase - Alpkit sent another without any fuss. It's not ideal for anything that isn't mostly water although does work. The shape of the pot isn't great for stirring etc but that's the point. I take a smaller pot with me and use that for frying etc. Well worth the money.

Heat added nice find, treated myself to one and xmas prezzy sorted for a family member.....need something to make a brew as I will soon be homeless for spending all my hard earned cash on this site haha....

really fancy one but it looks huge for throwing in your rucksack when wild camping, maybe that's why they recommend you drive a "landy"to carry the thing!

Surprised to see these reduced, a good bit of kit for the price compact and light weight ideal for backpacking the small jetboil canisters fit inside this, here's a breakdown comparison to a jetboil zip.
