The Zebra Stainless Steel Loop Handle Pot, or Billy Can, is an absolutely fundamental piece of Bushcraft equipment. Ray Mears and the Woodlore team have been using these cooking pots for well over a decade now, and are seldom found without them. If you're going to buy just one piece of equipment for cooking in the outdoors, we believe that the Zebra Billy Can should be your first choice.

Woodlore stock the Zebra Billy Can, or 'Loop Handle Pot' as it is otherwise known, in four different sizes. This, the 12 cm model, is the perfect size for solo backpackers. It is also ideal for use with The Honey Stove and makes a lovely compact set with the Littlbug Junior Camping Stove and Trangia Spirit Burner. This product comes with plastic auto-lock lid clips included, but we recommend that these are removed when cooking over an open fire or on a stove.

Each Zebra Billy Can comes complete with an internal dish which can be used for steaming or cooking on above the main area of the can. Once your food is cooked, the dish can also be used as a small plate. The notch in the handle allows the Billy Can to be suspended from a pot hanger.

  Great size for one person or 2 at a push, the can is great for hanging or cooking over fire or even on the hob. I've used Zebra as a brand for years. Top quality product.

  It's just a great piece of kit. I bought four new ones to add to kit for our Wilderness Therapy training last week. Sturdy, light, decent handle to dangle from a pot hanger, embedded lid handle so it doesn't get in the way, and you can get the lid off easily, with a little hooked stick or tent peg or something. Bung some tinder or kindling in there while it's in your rucksack. Thanks also for quick delivery, and actually the best price I could find for this kit.

  What can you say about the billy can and its insert, a versatile bit kit I bought the 12cm as my main cooking personal cooking pot on a two week wild camp. Besides cooking, I used it to fill my mill bank bag, collecting berries, tinder, making fruit leather and cordage, absolutely brilliant. Why the 4 star review. These should come with metal clips as standard the plastic clips have to be removed while cooking and once your billy has been on a fire its pointless putting them back on, unfortunately they only added to my local landfill.

  A good functional pot but the jury is out on the handle and its plastic clips. Might ditch both and fit a wire handle.

  Came highly recommended from many sources so I thought I would trust them and buy this myself. I have to say it is a great piece of kit for my camping needs. Big enough easily to cook a big meal for me, or food for 2 people. I like how the lid locks down with the handle up, as this speeds up boiling water nicely. Not too heavy and small enough to pack to go away on my bike, or to just take away in my day van for camping trips. Great for boiling water for a cup of coffee and food, so I only need this for all my needs. Can't recommend this enough.

  Great bit of kit, fits in rucksack just nice. Great size to cook ready meals. Robust enough to cook on open flame/embers or on electric cookers. Great to cook stews in too! Might even get a bigger one soon. Great Billy can 10/10

  A must for anyone cooking on a fire. Fine to put directly into the fire, and perfect to hang over the fire thanks to the handle. I've used these for many years, they never let me down. Easy to keep clean. The handy little bowl is useful too. Great quality. Amazingly quick delivery. Very impressed by the service. 11 out of 10.
