Hot food on the move

There are many situations in which you would like to eat something warm. Preparing a hot meal takes time and a place where it can be served.
In your kitchen this is certainly not a problem. If you can't take a hot meal from a fast food place or restaurant because they are closed or not within reach.

You will then need a self-heating food. Whenever you are on the road doing your hunting or military duties, or even in your free time, it becomes more difficult to get a hot meal.

Systems of self-heating packaging

Different solution approaches for a warm meal on the road, offroad or wilderness.

There are now many different systems with self-heating packaging. Most of them have a large number of individual parts and the individual foods are often packed in a large number of sachets.
Unpacking, preparing and arranging the many individual parts takes time and space. Self-heating packages, which rely on a heating bag, also require a solid base on which to place the self-heating food for the duration of heating.

Meals to be heated in plastic films or pouches should also maintain an exact position so that the food is properly heated and not contaminated. The development of steam during heating should not be underestimated as a possible risk of injury. So you are tied to a fixed and stable place for the duration of the preparation and food intake. In many cases, this is not practical.

Additional favorable features

You are on the road in a car or truck, can not or are not allowed to take a rest? Maybe you are a hunter on a high seat or a member of the military and on duty? Then you should take a look at the self-heating meals from

These are self-sufficient and easy to use. The self-heating package is a closed system. No unpacking of many individual parts but simply press the button at the bottom and wait. The can can keep moving and the food will be warm in any position.

Of course, the best position is standing upright. Additional favorable features has this system of self-heating for the military. We are stingy developers and hot steam that just escapes into the surrounding air is wasted energy that is missing when heating food. We have solved this problem. No steam, no wasted energy. Coming back to the hunter or the military, our self-heating packaging is virtually silent when heated.
