The Petromax product world: Tradition meets innovation

At Petromax, they continuously develop their product range and, as a hotbed of ideas, they always come up with new products to optimise the open-air camp. Their focus is set on outdoor cooking and BBQ, fire, bushcraft and survival. High-quality, cast-iron Dutch Ovens and baking pans in various designs, as well as grills, cooking places and many useful accessories are bestsellers. 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.

Petromax’ product range is rooted in the legendary high-pressure lamp, Max Graetz invented more than 100 years ago and named it Petromax, based on his own nickname. 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. Within the last two years alone, Petromax has launched more than 30 new products.
