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 16 cm model, is the perfect size when cooking for a group. It can also be used with The Honey Stove and the Littlbug Junior Camping Stove. 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.

  • Weight: 925 g
  • Internal dimensions: 16 x 16 cm

  • Removable auto-lock lid clips included

  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.

  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.

  You can't fault these pots for bushcraft. Sturdy, well designed and a pleasure to use.

  Awesome little tin, well big tin as I got the largest one. It's well made and the lid locks into place nicely. The bonus for me is that it has a little zebra on it, all I need to do now is perfect my zebra noise so each time I use it I can make that noise and freak fellow campers out. Thanks Raymondo for another great quality piece of merchandise.
