I had never heard of one either. Looks like a great way to cook especially while camping…set it up, sit around, then eat. Thanks to you all!

The Can Cooker is a pot intended to be used closed, including as a steamer. Although the lid has clamps, it has an open vent so it won't build any significant pressure; it's not a pressure cooker.

This is good... shoddy workmanship and pressure cooker do not go well together...

Could one not do the same thing with a pot and a lid, as you do with this Can Cooker? Or, am I missing something here? Our Magma set has nice thick bottoms which transfer heat evenly, which is something nice for slow cooking, or stewing.

It is similar to a low pressure cooker, faster than stove top and crock pot. Plus like all pressure cookers, it allows the release of the pressure slowly and controlled.

Have you used one, Jim? Just curious as to what makes it any quicker, as others have said it doesn't use pressure, which would be needed to speed things along. If in fact it does pressure up, I could see it being useful, if you like this kinda dish.

You need to do up a couple meals, and video it, to show us what it can do, and your thoughts on its performance.

Also, what size is best -- Has anyone used the large one? I could picture using this for family campouts as well as when we're camping just the two of us -- probably need small and large
