We recently had the opportunity to meet with Kris from Titan Ready USA and he showed us some of his products that we are excited to share with you. These products are simple but efficient solutions to some preparedness dilemmas we know we have faced and you may have as well. This post covers the HERC tea light ovens, but be sure to check out the Helius Rocket Stove and Hydrant Water Storage Towers as well.

While butane stoves are great for stove-top cooking indoors, we have yet to find a good solution for oven cooking indoors. Having a diversified preparedness plan is great to cover yourself in different scenarios. For example, a Sun Oven is great if you don’t have any fuel, but not so great if it’s rainy or you’re trying to be discreet in a crisis. That’s why we recommend having different options. All have their pro’s and con’s.

Here is a video of us being introduced to the HERC XXL with Kris:

The HERC tea light ovens are great for many reasons:

  • Can be used indoors
  • The XXL acts as an oven
  • The Eco acts as a crock pot or dehydrator
  • Can be used discreetly
  • You can fit a standard 9 by 13 pan in the larger one (this is huge)
  • Can get 4 hours of cook time out of 20 tealights in the XXL
  • The fuel is fairly inexpensive, about 40 cents per cooking hour
  • You can store tealights inside safely, indefinitely, and legally
  • The thermal energy cooks the food evenly
  • The stove folds down for easy storage
  • Made by Americans for Americans​

    Besides the size is there anything else different in the two?

    • The small one won’t get as hot since it’s only using half the candles. So it will cook more like a crock pot and less like an actual oven. The large one has candles on the bottom and in the lid.

      • Patti

        And in the lid. Wow I missed that when I watch the video. I thought they were just on the bottom. I will have to watch them again.

      • Steve OafDawg Moore

        I think you meant to say clay bricks top and bottom, not candles.

  • ultrasquare

    Can you use sterno cans instead of candles?

    • Sterno cans wouldn’t fit in the trays, they are too big.

      • HS

        Can you just set the sterno cans on the counter under the oven, and not in the trays?

  • S.A.

    This looks amazing. My question is about the candles. I’ve heard that burning some candles, especially inexpensive ones, releases harmful toxins into the air. Do the candles exhaust into the interior of the oven, or outside of the cooking area? Is there a source of clean burning tea lights? Thanks.

    • Al

      I’ve worried this about candles, too. In the final breakdown, I decided that if it’s a matter of having a good cooking source for bread in the middle of winter or having perfectly clean air, I’d go with a good cooking source. I think if/when I ever have to use a product like this, we’re gonna have much bigger concerns than inhaling some toxins from candles.
