    I've had this set for a while, and have posted it in the Reference Gallery on CPL. Thought it may be of interest here too.

    It came in the box complete with the roarer burner, trivet and accessories. In reality, the enamel vent is a lighter blue than in the pic. The spirit bottle was made by Hart of aluminium pot & tea kettle fame.

    The roarer burner is of an interesting design with a cap and solid slug sliding into the hole above the jet. All made of electro-galvanised steel.

    With pot rest and burner fitted. (burner not fully screwed down)

    The lantern burner cage design is reminiscent of the Coleman 339. It is thinly coated with black paint.

    why not both? That enamel vent has a flat enough top that a pot could sit on top.

    Petromax made a special hood for cooking on their lanterns, so it should be possible. Maybe only for slow cooking though. Or a small kettle.

    Best regards,

    I think it would not be able to take much more weight than a mug of tea [-X:)
