The quest for an ultra-light cooking solution…Several years ago I was in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness cooking over a Coleman two burner propane stove waiting for water to boil. It was cool, rainy and there was a slight breeze. No matter how I moved the camp stove the wind seemed to affect my ability to cook, so I started to think about how I could make this situation better. Several generations later and a lot of field testing I came up with what I call the Critter CR2 and I believe that it resolves the problems that I had with commercially available camp stoves. Features like a low center of gravity and teeth on the main supporting structure virtually eliminate tipping your food over while cooking. A sleek design allows the CR2 to be packed nearly anywhere you can imagine. Whether you are a hard core hiker, canoeist, campground camper, biker or a weekend camper, the CR2 camp stove stand combined with your favorite stove makes for a simple and easy cooking experience anywhere you are. 

Reward Update: Anyone that is interested in the combo rewards and would like to have the Ti version please add $10 to the reward level.

Production Plan Status: I am working with a manufacturer in Minnesota that is ISO 9001:2008 certified to manufacture samples and the first production runs. Testing of the initial concept design has been completed and the next step of production samples have been reviewed and tested as well. A mini press has been procured along with a set of custom dies for each wing to bend the tabs with precision. 

Before I can ship the Critter CR2 I need to raise money to complete these last steps. This is where you come in -
  • Procure raw materials for the stand and packaging
  • Place a production order
  • Stretch Goal: If enough money is raised I want to develop a set of progressive dies to run the CR2 wings in a coil fed press.

Risks and challenges

I have taken steps to mitigate any issues with the CR2 starting with the manufacturer. The manufacturer I have selected is ISO 9001:2008 certified and they have carefully vetted my parts to make sure they fit their processes. I will personally ensure that top quality products are manufactured and delivered to each of my customers.
