Bemco Oven straps

 As of January 2014 we are no longer shipping the ovens with 2 straps. This is due to the second strap crossing over the front pin and bending the metal when the strap is tightened too tight. This intern causes the front to come loose when the oven is set up.
If you have ordered the oven and did not receive the two straps this is why. If you would like to receive a second strap please E-Mail me and I will ship one out to you.

 As of June 2014 we will no longer sell the oven with out the nylon sack. You will get the one strap and the nylon sack. We will also stop selling the oven only as we do not have a high demand for this type of kit. Please if you have any suggestions or comments please forward them to me at or

Thank You

Comments : I recently bought the Bemco Backpacker 7" Oven kit for a trip on the Appalachian Trail. We did a test run on this weekend's campout (20 miles). We had freshly baked cinnamon rolls, crusty pizza, and flaky biscuits. What a treat!. We used the MSR Whisperlight for heating and the scouts did all the cooking. We use parchment paper in the two pans provided and it was no mess. Best deal for the money I have come across in a long time. I love the bag it comes in and the velcro strip for storage. Everything is there. Thermometer works great. I would recommend to anyone who wants a change of cooking on the trail. And it only weights 24 ounces.

Bemco Oven Mt. Whitney 2013

 Here are some of the photos from our Mt. Whitney trip. We baked pizza and brownies at the top in the Bemco Backpacker Oven. The 2 guys that went with me brought beer for us to have with our pizza. So it was pizza and beer at the top of Mt. Whitney.

 On the way up we stopped and camped at Crabtree meadows. Here we could have a camp fire so I thought I would try the oven with coals from the camp fire. It worked out great got the oven up to 300 deg F and baked pizza, biscuits, and banana bread.

Pizza baked with camp fire coals.
Here is the photos of the baked foods on the trip. Well some of them anyway. As I did not take photos of everything I baked. But we did eat very well!

 We had a great time and would love to do it again. Maybe next year! I already have another guy who wants me to show him how to use the Bemco Backpacker oven and bake pizza at the top of Mt. Whitney. Now the total number of people that have done this is 3 that I know of anyway!

 Lets make the list longer so far it is Brian, Jesse & Josh. Now for the one that have eaten pizza at the top of Mt. Whitney I would need to add to the list it would be Brian, Jesse, David, Joe, Josh. We have all had fresh baked pizza at the top of Mt. Whitney 14495 feet above sea level.

 Enjoy using the Bemco Backpacker Oven and bake anything anywhere!
