    ^ Silicone liner for the main pan and the double-boiler type lower pan that helps distribute heat within the upper pan area.

    I should have said that I have been successful baking any small, one pot type dishes that I've wanted to using both dry baking and steam baking in my Trangia 27 set by itself and with the T27 billy pot for larger dishes. Ive used the same concepts with other cook sets as well. While this Omnia Oven is interesting, I don't see how I'd be able to do anything on it that I can't do on my T27, though it probably has more capacity than my T27.

    I also wonder how it would be for other kinds of cooking: boiling water, pan frying a steak or chicken, cooking scrambled eggs, making coffee, or even making a simple vegetable soup. For RV, tiny house living, or car camping, maybe, but not as a sole cook pot for me.

    ^ Completely agree that the Omnia Oven is not a do-all kit. But if you did not already have a Trangia heat concentrator/pot setup (maybe just a generic frying pan and pot), this pot/"oven" might be a good alternative. Definitely easier to clean with the silicone liner.

    Do you have the flint striker. Best upgrade to my lantern.

    I do not believe that I do, but am not 100% sure. Will have to take a look. The lantern came from my mom's house after she passed, so it isn't one that I have used a lot.

    It is an "aftermarket" add on. But nice to be able to light your lantern without a lighter or matches. Mine is not mounted at such a diagonal angle. Should be, but it works surprising well.

    And the lantern tangent continues.

    Ok, I definitely don't have that. Too obvious to overlook.

    Saw a good/used Coleman 502 on FB marketplace. Any idea what price ranges these are fetching?

    On ebay look on the left of the listings there is a list of boxes , go to bottom of list you will see 'show only' check 'sold items' and you will see what has sold in past few weeks. Under 40 bucks will get you a 502. The 502's are rather big for cooking on a cycle. The Peak 1 or 440 are about half the size and will meet your cooking needs. There is a two piece storage case that doubles as cooking pans. There are several stoves that come with own storage /cooking pans as you can see and are more compact.

    Tator Tots are the bomb on a camping trip. Flavorful little nuggets that crisp up quickly makes them my favorite. enjoy 07GSA SoCal
