Military Cooking

Our unique, clean burning, nontoxic fuel and lightweight stoves are suitable for air transportation and parachute dropping. These complete cooking solutions are non-explosive and can sustain all soldiers in survival situations.

“Having used Hexamine and gas type heaters for many years… It was great to use a new, innovative stove and fuel that heats water quickly and efficiently.”

Corporal, British Army

Cooking Challenges

For over 70 years, militaries around the world have used cooking fuels and stoves that have remained largely unchanged since their introduction.

It is essential that all modern military personnel are well fed and able to sustain themselves in the field either as individual soldiers or as groups. Over the past few years much effort has been made to improve the content and quality of ration packs issued to soldiers. Now there is even more need to improve the Operational Ration Heaters and cook stoves so that the soldiers can cook safely, cleanly and quickly in any military situation.

Cooking Solutions

With the advent of new materials and smarter technologies, Zip™ and Boilex™ have created a complete range of clean cooking systems that meet the current needs of the modern soldier.

Each Boilex™ stove has been uniquely designed to optimise the power and efficiency of Zip™ Cooking Fuel, so food can be cooked quickly and cleanly, making them highly effective alternatives to traditional options such as wood, gas, Hexamine, alcohol gels or Kerosene, many of which present safety and transport issues.

Boilex™ Stoves

All of the Boilex™ stoves are constructed from durable Stainless Steel or Aluminium metal to ensure that the stove is lightweight, easy to use, robust and efficient. They may also all be used with standard-issue pots, cups and pans.

 Designed to be flat packed for individual cooking, the Boilex™ Pyramid and All in One stoves are small enough to be carried in a soldiers pocket or backpack. Moreover the All in One stove negates the need for additional cooking equipment as it has an integrated water chamber as part of the stove.

The Boilex™ Ultraclean and Tower stoves are more durable and more powerful to cater for the needs of larger groups of soldiers.

Zip™ Cooking fuel

To fuel the range of Boilex™ stoves, Zip™ have produced a range of cooking fuels that are non – toxic and formulated using naturally derived, sustainable biofuel that burn cleanly with a high calorific value and no sooty deposits. They can be used both indoors and outdoors (providing adequate ventilation) and in all weather conditions from Arctic, through to deserts and jungles. Since the fuels is not classified as hazardous and is non-explosive it can be air transported to remote locations and parachute dropped as required.

Boilex™ Cooking Systems

The Boilex™ stoves and the Zip™ Cooking Fuel work very efficiently together to deliver optimum water heating and food cooking system solutions for use in any location, by every modern army. They can also be delivered as bespoke solutions to meet all military cooking and fuel requirements.
