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 three different sizes. This, the 12 cm model, is the perfect size for solo backpackers. It is also ideal for use with The Honey 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.

Zebra Stainless Steel Billy Can 12 cm is rated 5/5 based on 65 customer reviews.

  A well-made stainless steel pot, that can take a beating. Will probably be of a sufficient size for making a meal for one person. It looks quite small, but it is 1.5 liters, and what more do you need? Comes with a well designed lid. Will probably last you a lifetime. Great piece of kit.

  The Zebra S/S Billy-can I bought recently is a great bit of kit! It does exactly what it is designed to do, boils water reasonably quickly (with lid on), seemed very sturdy due to a good base size and is easy to use (tip: wear gloves when hot) as I found out when I used it at the weekend to boil water to make a brew whilst beach fishing. Well made and just the job!

  Really well made pot that will easily fit into the PLCE pouch of the Karrimor SF packs. I also like the fact that the Kitchen Sink I also bought from this site will fit in the top of this billy and keeps everything together and in one place.

  It's a nice sturdy pot, well made and just a nice addition to your kit. I love it; only thing about it is that it has plastic clips that some people suggest would melt.

Hello Jonathan. The plastic clips now come fitted as standard, but can be removed. We personally remove them on the pots we use.

  Sturdy, hard wearing, practically sized. This is the second Zebra billy I've owned and have passed my old one - which is still going strong - onto my son. These are the best billys I've used and wouldn't recommend any other. Great service and delivery was prompt as always.

  This Billy Can is great for cooking over an open fire. It has a useful inner bowl which comes in handy too. Large enough to cook a meal for 2. Only down-side is the plastic clips that keeps the lid in place when storing. Would be great if these were also made out of metal so they don't have to be taken off before using. I lost 1 of these clips the 1st day of using it and will have to use something else to keep the lid on when carrying it about.

  Does exactly what you'd expect it to. The only comment I'd make is when using over a camp fire remove the plastic inserts that clamp the lid on as they melt!

  The plastic clips on the sides of these are useless, they will melt if you use the pot over a fire. Without the clips, it rattles slightly, but loudly enough to be annoying and to make you seek a suitable bag/strap to contain the pot. However, the pot is very good quality, I can see this pot lasting longer than most. It's also got a nice 'feel'. I would recommend!

  For the price these are unbeatable! Once blackened they boil water effectively over a fire and the little dish can be used for loads of things too. The plastic catches are handy but it's worth removing them as they can melt when the tin is over a fire, or maybe I was getting it too close.
