The quality of the product is exactly what I was hoping for. I am in the back country a lot and depend on my gear and my Kit. Clearly the development of these Billy cans and the Eagle Kettles were done with folks who use them and spend as much time as I do with their gear.

Excellent cooking equipment, with 2.7l volume, a frying pan and a metal handle with a raised bump in the centre for hanging on a pot hanger about the fire. I have used the billy to cook, 4 large portions of stew and it will come in handy to boil plenty enough water to fill an individuals water bladder for the day I'm sure. There are some cons to the billy, the lid won't stay on secure in transit without the metal handle upright to hold the plastic clips in place. The clips themselves aren't very useful when cooking, they must be removed by hand before it goes anywhere near the heat! Which is a bit fiddly but essential if you don't want to melt them. The pot is of excellent quality and sturdy steel, it may take up a large area in your back but it's large enough inside to store food items for later preparation. I intend on purchasing the billy can bag too to avoid contaminating my kit with soot. Overall, I recommend this billy can Despite the plastic clips.

I've replaced the plastic lid clips with metal ones I made from a coat hanger. The pot itself is great quality and feels as if it could last the rest of my life. Due to the Covid lockdown I have not yet tested it in the field, however, I have baked a nice fruit cake in it over a trangia burner in the back yard. The price is very competitive compared to other websites and delivery was nice and fast. Can't wait to do a nice lamb stew for the family over the fire when restrictions are lifted. After the first burn the pot has a nice patina and no warping what so ever.

Timeless classic. Seem to be a quite thick guage stainless so it is built to last. The insert is perfect as a plate or bowl. The handle clips are are not designed for use over flames and heat so remove them if you don't want to melt them (This should be obvious but have seen it done). Fantastic build quality that is not reflected in the price. The only other outdoor products I've tried that are made to this standard are snow peak. Seen lots of people modding their zebra billy cans to suit their needs and at this bargain price it's not a scary prospect. A top product for all but ultra lightweight backpackers.

I purchased three billy cans and have so far used two, they are great apart from one major issue, the clips to hold the lids on are plastic and melted, we didn’t have them on an excessive fire, we used a steel rack hanging on a tripod so they were not directly on the fire but the plastic clips melted, I was surprised but it seems kind of understandable, why would you have plastic on a product like that, seems an odd choice. Apart from that they were fine.

Dear Stuart, thank you for your review. Sorry to hear you have experienced an issue with the Billy Cans. The clips are a standard fittings for these products. We recommend the clips are removed when cooking over an open fire or on a stove.

So practical around the house or out and about. Great that I can securely store everything I need for outdoors, including stove, utensils and food all in one place. Probably need to drill a few holes in the inner pan for more effective steaming but that said I still managed to get asparagus cooked to perfection whilst I made soup in the main pan. Brilliant.

Billy pot arrived quickly and was recently used on a wild camping weekend for cooking on an open fire. Worked extremely well.

There is no better billy in my opinion. My second Zebra and not my last.

Nice shiny billys, shame about the plastic clips (which are in the photograph) which hold the handle up, but melt on the gas ring and fire. I spoke to someone in customer services who say they melt and shouldn't be used.

Hello Mrs. Desroche. The plastic locking clips on the handles are simply optional extras which are included with each billy can as standard. These can be removed at any time should you not wish to use them.
