Press Information: Atago – The all-rounder by Petromax

The all-rounder by Petromax:

Use the Petromax Atago for cooking, grilling and fire

Magdeburg, October 2017.  Petromax presents a new smart piece of equipment for your open-air camp. The Petromax Atago is both a cooking and baking place as well as a mobile fire place. Thanks to the unique folding mechanism, it can easily be stored and the double-walled design keeps the Atago cool on the outside. The all-rounder combines chimney and wood boiler principle and is heated up in no time. The ventilation and temperature are continuously adjustable. The Petromax Atago has a special place in the Petromax product world: It can be combined with a number of equipment pieces, such as many of the Dutch Ovens and baking pans, all Petromax Pans or the Petromax Percolator Perkomax.

The Petromax Atago is in the centre

Thanks to its various application possibilities and the folding mechanism, the Petromax Atago is the centre of your open-air camp. Whether you want to grill steaks, to cook in a Dutch Oven or bake a cake, the Petromax provides many functions which make it a true all-rounder in the Petromax product world. And even after your meal outdoors, the Atago stays in the centre of attention, using it with the Petromax Percolator Perkomax to prepare coffee. Finally, the Petromax Atago is an elegant and safe bowl for your camp fire.

“For some time now, our customers have asked for an all-rounder that is space-saving and provides various application possibilities outdoors. This is why we have developed the Petromax Atago and we are confident that, after trying it once, people never want to be without it. The Atago features many outstanding details which make it unique.” says Jonas Taureck, the CEO of Petromax.

Set up well: Ready to use with just one hand

Holding and setting up the Petromax Atago, you will already feel its extremely robust and durable quality. The Petromax Atago is set up in no time and with just one hand, thanks to its unique folding mechanism. Retracting the Atago is just as fast. With a height of only 5.9 in when retracted, it takes up minimum storage space.

Effective heating up with the chimney effect

Charcoal, charcoal briquettes and wood can be used to start a fire. The continuously adjustable ventilation allows you to regulate the temperature as desired and, with the air supply fully open, the Petromax Atago is heated up in no time. Thanks to its highly elaborate design, the chimney effect is used optimally. The intelligent ventilation further promotes the wood boiler principle, whereby the Petromax Atago is heated up very efficiently and requires little fuel.

Unique double-walled design

The Petromax Atago is made of stainless steel with a double-walled design, which makes it not only appealing but also effectively isolates the burning chamber while keeping the outer wall cool, even after a longer use. The Petromax Atago radiates little heat at the bottom. With its three feet, it will be stable on any ground.

Three in one: The basic functions of the Petromax Atago

The Petromax Atago with its three basic functions is perfectly fitted for the Petromax product world.

Petromax Atago as a grill

The Petromax Atago can be used as a classical grill. Once the fire is started with charcoal or briquettes, it is quickly heated up thanks to the chimney effect. A matching grilling grate and charcoal grate are included in the scope of delivery.

Petromax Atago as an oven or stove

The Petromax Atago is an efficient and versatile cooking place. It is best used in combination with the cast-iron Dutch Ovens by Petromax up to size ft9, which fit into the inner cylinder of the Petromax Atago and are placed directly on the ember. The Dutch Ovens of size ft6 and ft9 are ideal as they are flush with the Atago which ensures an optimum heat yield with its good isolation. The Loaf Pans are used in the same way to bake bread or cake or to prepare casseroles. The Atago is also perfectly suited to be used with Ring Cake Pans or the Petromax Percolator to prepare coffee. On top of the round opening of the Petromax Atago, the pans quickly reach the perfect cooking temperature and, in combination with the Petromax Fire Bowls, the Atago becomes a Plancha grill.

Petromax Atago as a fire bowl

After having used the all-rounder to prepare the dinner, a camp fire for a cosy evening can be started directly in the Petromax Atago, which makes it a practical and safe fire bowl. The Atago can be used as fire bowl when being extracted as well as retracted.

Accessories for more possibilities

With the perfectly matched convection lid, the Petromax Atago will be a convection oven. The circulating heat provides for even and energy-saving baking and cooking outdoors. Thanks to the coated inside and the close-meshed aramid fibres, heat can hardly escape which ensures a constant cooking behaviour and even allows for baking pizza, also in the open air. Petromax also provides a matching bag for clean and convenient transport and storage of the Petromax Atago.

Consistently developing elaborate details, smart improvements and new products, Petromax does no things by halves. Everything developed by Petromax is made with the premise: It is good only if it is resistible, robust and durable.

In the beginning of 2007, Jonas Taureck acquired the trademark rights and resumed the production of the once innovative high-pressure lamp. The success of the Petromax lamp opened his eyes for the charm of outdoor equipment and, thus, an entire product world which Petromax now systematically enters.

The Plus for the Embers of your Outdoor Kitchen

The crucial question when having a BBQ: Which charcoal shall we use? With Cabix Plus, Petromax has developed special briquettes for Dutch Ovens and cast-iron moulds with lid.

The broad surface area of the square briquettes ensures even embers around the pot and on the lid. The ideal air supply thanks to the ridge profile provides for a consistent burning behaviour with a burning time of up to four hours. The combustion with only little ash residues facilitates cleaning the lid and BBQ after your cooking experience.

Naturally sustainable

Cabix Plus briquettes are made of natural resources from the coconut milk production which makes them eco-friendly, sustainable and CO2-neutral. They are dimensionally stable and can be reused after extinguishing and, being square and stackable, they take up little storage area.

Take it up a notch with the Trammel Hook kh7

Use the Petromax Trammel Hook made of coated steel to simply suspend Dutch Oven, Tea Kettle and Co. for cooking over the campfire. Everybody knows the saying: “Take it up a notch!” as it originates from medieval cooking places: Then kettles and pots were suspended on a trammel hook over the fire. The lower the pot hung over the fire, the faster the food was done. Now, Petromax brings this proven method into the modern outdoor kitchen.

The cooking temperature under your control

The Trammel Hook with its seven notches provides for easy regulation of the distance between pot and fire and thus, always ensures the right temperature to effectively heat and cook your food and drinks. This way you always have the cooking temperature under control, also in your outdoor kitchen.

Solid mount for Dutch Ovens and Co.

The mount of the Trammel Hook – a combination of eye and crook – allows you to use it attached to a tripod or at a crossbar over your fireplace. Thanks to the lower guide, the Trammel Hook will never be completely released when adjusting its height. The Trammel Hook with its solid design and components offers you a stable and reliable outdoor cooking place for heavy pots and kettles.

The Petromax Trammel Hook kh7 is now available in our online shop.

News for the (Outdoor) Bakery: The Petromax Muffin Mould

The outdoor kitchen is much more than cooking and grilling in the open air because thanks to Petromax the bakery is also moved into the great outdoors. After the Loaf Pans and the Ring Cake Pan made of cast iron, now comes the Petromax Muffin Mould made of cast iron.

The muffin mould has room for six delicious muffins, no matter whether sweet or savory. With its practical handle with notch, it can simply be hanged over the fire. You can also place it on glowing briquettes or in embers or in your Dutch Oven ft6 or ft9. Close the lid, add briquettes on the lid and under the pot and your outdoor oven is ready to use. Of course, you can also perfectly use the Muffin Mould in the home stove.

But attention

Please note that you use the Muffin Mould in the Dutch Oven ft9 with a Cast-Iron Trivet or a the Petromax ftus which you should place under the muffin mould. This is necessary to create a little space between the cast-iron edges of the mould and the wall of the pot so that the cast iron cannot be damaged.

Why cast iron?

Many products by Petromax, are, just like the Muffin Mould, made cast iron. The positive characteristics of cast iron make outdoor cooking very effective and ensure incomparably delicious food. Whether it is pork, roast, bread or cakes – cast iron ensures even heat distribution and storage. Thus, the energy gained from the fire can be excellently used outdoors. In addition, all Petromax cast iron products are pre-treated (seasoned finish). Therefore, you do not have to burn them in anymore and can get started on baking muffins right away.

With the muffin mould you bring variety into your outdoor kitchen. Make sure that you get you own at the retailer you trust or in our online shop.
