Cons

Compared to a conventionally pre made meal, there may be a little more waste. The price is also higher, since a heater is integrated and longer storage should be possible. Since the system is completely self-sufficient (heating, wet food), the weight is also higher. So it is not necessarily suitable for a multi-day hike with backpack.

For this, a solution with freeze-dried food is probably better suited, provided there is the required liquid or water at the destination.

Innovation,

                   from the idea to the finished product it is sometimes a long way with ups and downs. It started with a small idea, a plastic bowl and a heating bag about something similar to the HOTCAN system. 

The only thing our system has in common with HOTCAN - we use the can shape. The heating process, like almost all others, is solved exothermically, but with a different approach.

Without words,
that's the thing.

We are proud of it.

Without electricity, without gas, without fire and still a hot meal.

Without a doubt, almost everyone can get a hot meal. As long as access to all resources is available, preparing a hot meal should not be a problem. It only becomes difficult when there is no access to food and energy due to disasters, blackouts, accidents or even in situations of war.

A good step would be to plan ahead and prepare for any emergency situations that may arise, with an expansion, the possibly already existing stockpile, for the purpose of security of supply with the Canboy system and self-heating packaging. This can, of course, be used in everyday life. However, it should be noted that this concept of food heating has a higher cost than a conventionally pre made meal. After all, it was designed specifically for emergencies and is a good solution for emergency preparedness.

Firefighters and Rescue Workers

A field kitchen is often too much of a good thing or not ready to deploy quickly enough. Many locations are not necessarily next to a restaurant and are not within reach of civilization. To provide Rescue Workers and and First Responders with a warm catering, a solution is needed that is easy to transport, simple and self-sufficient in use.

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.

As a complementary storage for your home.

Situations may arise where you have no way to prepare a hot meal. Whether it is due to an interrupted or missing energy supply or because there is no infrastructure at all. To meet nutritional needs, it is necessary to take appropriate precautions and measures with an emergency stock of food.

At the moment, the selection of meals is still manageable, but work is underway to offer more variations and flavors. With this emergency supply, one has a good additional solution for as an emergency preparedness, just in case.
