Barocook Flameless Cooker

What kind of mad Japanese scientist concoction is in these Baropacks that makes them boil water with no supplemental heating element? No fire, no gas, no electricity, not even the sun. Now I can make spaghetti & meatballs even at high altitudes or adrift at sea without scrounging to start a fire, or worrying about keeping it lit. Not that I ever travel to high altitudes or out to sea. But sometimes I camp out in the back yard when I feel like my mama is encroaching my personal space, and Barocook would save me the embarrassment of telling Domino's to come to the tent instead of the front door. I just hope whatever heat-generating chemical reaction that's occurring inside that tiny pouch doesn't make me grow a third arm. I mean, a gimp third arm anyway. A functional third arm would actually be incredibly useful.

Now available as an import from Japan, the Barocook flameless cooker heats to edible splendor up to 1,200 mL of your favorite soups, stews, curries, and pastas. It can also boil eggs and steam rice. Take it camping, trekking, picnicking, or to college.

Barocook usage instructions are as follows:

  • Separate stainless steel bowl from outer steel container.
  • Open Baropack heating pad and place in bottom of plastic container.
  • Add water to fill line of heating pad package and pour onto Baropack.
  • Add food to stainless steel bowl and then place bowl on top of outer container.
  • Cover with lid and have a beer if you're making soup or 3 beers if you're making heavier foods like pasta or meat. Cook times run from 6 to 25 minutes.
