    I use a wide mouth canning lid ring to lift off the bottom and an empty can as the pan.

    This will come in handy. The clips are an awesome idea.

  3. EconoChallenge on September 16, 2019 at 7:40 pm

    I love the way you think. Genius.

  4. Nim Shadow on September 16, 2019 at 7:40 pm

    Wow…. I’ve been looking for something to fill the baking hole ever since I lost my bakepacker in a move. Ironically, I used to work at Walmart and had eye’d those same bowls a number of times thinking they’d work well for pack use. My brain has been looking at the tongs and wondering if I could do something with aluminum rods to make that component a little lighter and less bulky. Hmm… Thanks for the idea! Definitely going to put one together for hunting season!

    I did this today. I succeed by failing along the way. We used Strawberry cheesecake muffin mix. I had 3 dog bowls. Two for my oven and a smaller third to bake in. We use pam spray so it wouldn’t stick. I used the Lixada gasification wood stove for my fire source and? FAIL. Kept trying to no succeed UNTIL? I just placed the whole unit into my new volcano grill with the coals (around 10) pushed to the side of the oven. Family and I ate dinner, checked after and it came out perfect. Thanks for the idea. I want to try it again worth the Lixada using pellets instead of wood and see if I can get it to work. Still at my camp site enjoying the road less traveled.
    Before I forget. The little alcohol dish that comes with the Lixada Gasification Stove? I used that to give my muffin pan space from the bottom of the dog bowl oven.

    Hi i have the 1100ML toaks pot/pan combination. If i just place a rack or spacer inside… will i have the same effect?

  9. Bob808Knight on September 16, 2019 at 7:48 pm

    The bread came out great.. Thanks for Send me the link you’ve given me a couple ideas on how to improve on my oven..

  10. DaveR on September 16, 2019 at 7:49 pm

    Hi Mark. Big fan, first time commenter. Hope this finds you well. Why doesn’t the plastic on the clips melt?

  11. joy bickerstaff on September 16, 2019 at 7:50 pm

    Hi ya mark! Ran across ur video, this is 2nd one, 1st one was the grill u made from a fryer basket, I have been looking at dog bowls off an on for a few months, wanting a cheep cook set, but was unsure, seeing this, I’m sure now and will definitely get them tomorrow (I’ve no cook set) the grill and bowls r right up my alley as far as cost. U have such good ideas therefore I subscribed. Thank u

  12. Jim Ferguson on September 16, 2019 at 7:51 pm

    Well done Mark. Your oven did a great job of cooking that muffin. God’s speed on your recovery.

  13. John Hallett on September 16, 2019 at 7:51 pm

    Found the exact same dog bowls at the dollar store. I’ve put my kit together and will be using it this weekend on a backing trip to Havasupi Canyon. I believe I have a total of three dollars invested. If this works as expected. I’m going to install a bbq thermometer in the bottom of the top pan. We are celebrating our buddies birthday with this trip and I plan on surprising him with a birthday cake. Thank you so much for sharing this.

    I just used a Dutch oven with two pie pans one turned upside down.

  16. 450rhino1 on September 16, 2019 at 7:54 pm

    WOW. Got to try this.

  17. simon mills on September 16, 2019 at 7:54 pm

    Great Mark good advice and yes food is great on the trail get well soon buddy

  18. Jamie Porter on September 16, 2019 at 7:55 pm

    Brilliant concept & another great video Mark. Keep strong. Lots of friends you’ve never met in your corner.

  19. Emeta Kraemer on September 16, 2019 at 7:55 pm

    Genius!! Thank you!

  20. Under The Carolina Sky on September 16, 2019 at 7:58 pm

    Fantastic! Never thought of dog food bowls. Do you think you could get the same effect with aluminum bowls? -Mike

  21. Terry W. Milburn on September 16, 2019 at 8:01 pm

    Um Hm That’ll do just fine for an easy way & low cost set-up Mark, Thanks to you & the Mrs. for sharing this idea.   Prayers for a speedy recovery.                ATB Ter  God Bless

    Awesome ideas!!!

  23. Martin Whipkey on September 16, 2019 at 8:06 pm

    Excellent idea! Can’t wait to make one of these too!

  24. alf3553 on September 16, 2019 at 8:06 pm

    Hi Mark. I finally made one of these little ovens. Bowls from Wally Mart $3 . I make a big batch of bannock and divide it up into 100 gram bags. To that I add one pack of Apple Cinnamon oatmeal and a few Ocean Spray Craisins Blueberry. I used a Nano stove with a Trangia burner. Simmer ring was set at about 1/4 “ . Cook time 20 minutes. It turned out great, well maybe a little dark on the bottom. I made this in the house. I don’t know if I could keep the Trangia going in any amount of wind at that setting. Next time I’m going to try a heat diffuser, the top of a tomato can (796 ml) looks about the right size and it fits in the dog bowl nicely.

  25. Helen Escandor on September 16, 2019 at 8:06 pm

    Very nice and informative. That cakemuffin looks mighty good. Thanks for sharing your know how.

  26. zeke sundown on September 16, 2019 at 8:11 pm

    Nice Maori pennant, hope your feeling well

  27. Seezor on September 16, 2019 at 8:11 pm

    This looks to work great as is but some kind of hinge could make opening and closing to check food and take food out possibly easier. A hinge that could be assembled and disassembled at the camp site so it could still collapse down for packing. Good idea thinking of the dog bowls. Looks like the muffin came out just right.

  28. Dennis Kuenze on September 16, 2019 at 8:11 pm

    Great tip. Thanks for sharing!

  29. TOM ARCHER on September 16, 2019 at 8:12 pm

    GREAT VIDEO! I’m fortunate that I live need a few restaurant supply stores. Inexpensive cooking bowls galore! Get out the cutting tools and files! Make stuff! Your videos are very inspiring!

  30. Squatchburger 1 on September 16, 2019 at 8:12 pm

    Excellent idea,I’m glad I found your channel !

    ceramic pie weights ad bio mass and helps to retain heat.

  32. Sharp Knife on September 16, 2019 at 8:18 pm

    Mark, I should have mentioned…the top of the stainless steel pot that I use for baking, I carefully hammered concave, removed the bakelite handle ( replaced it with an eye bolt) and then place a couple of BBQ briquettes on top for top heat as in a dutch oven. I treat the briquettes by placing them in a paper egg carton, drenched in heated wax. In this way they start up with one match and produce heat very quickly. All this for about $5.00. Makes great bannock or "bisquick" breads on the coleman type stove. I hope this clarifies my previous post.

  33. Jerry Oven on September 16, 2019 at 8:19 pm

    are you worried about Chromium 6 from burning stainless steel. this happens when you weld stainless and if you try electroplating stainless. Maybe I am worried about nothing.

  34. Peter Thompson on September 16, 2019 at 8:19 pm

    Great video.

    I’d like to offer a suggestion of silicone baking cups for the inside mold. Silicone is nonstick, takes heat up to 500°F, distributes heat very well, and it does not hold heat like metal. Handling should be easier and it should eliminate burned bottoms to breads and muffins.

    Silicone is also flexible for easy packing and it is naturally nonstick for easy cleanup, so no need for parchment paper.

    You can buy individual baking cups made from silicone in lots of shapes for just a few dollars.

    I was also wondering, have you considered drilling three holes in the lips of the bowls and running some wire or a bit of light chain so the oven can also be used suspended? I’m thinking you’d retain the integrity of the oven for use directly on your stove, the bowls would still function. And I’m thinking the top bowl will slide up and down the wire to act like a guide that keeps it in place. Or does that sound nuts?

    Thanks again for the oven idea!

  35. Song Jyong Choi on September 16, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    Awesome video Mark… Please make more videos likes this !

  36. Jim Ferguson on September 16, 2019 at 8:20 pm

    I found 5.9" dia. stainless steel bowls with lip for $2.59 ea at Amazon w/free shipping. Amazon also has a 5.5" round stainless wire rack with short feet that would fit inside the bowl. Search for:
    Water & Wood Kitchen 5.9" Diameter Stainless Steel Dinner Bowl Silver Tone
    Round Steamer Rack

    Brilliant. Am I surprised? No. You’re a master of repurposing design.

  39. Laurent Gouzou AKA Lynx1963 on September 16, 2019 at 8:26 pm

    Great idea Mark the fact It can be use on different cooking stoves is awsome and the fact you can use the 2 bowls alone for cooking is an absolute plus👍👍👍 Hope you are doing good in your fight my thoughts are for you my friend fromThe maritimes and I know That you will be the winner of that battle 🙌💪💪💪🙏🙏🙏🙏

  40. Aminah Mosley on September 16, 2019 at 8:26 pm

  42. Adam First on September 16, 2019 at 8:29 pm

    proof is in the muffin… nice job.. thanks for sharing

  43. shovelhead8 on September 16, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    Neat idea, and low cost as well. Worth a try.. For some reason, throwing some frozen or fresh cranberries in lemon poppyseed or just lemon muffins turns out really well. Thank you for the video, Mark

  44. Sharp Knife on September 16, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    I use BBQ grill 1/2 inch thick diffuser brick for the bottom spacer, and a bunt pan instead of the foil pan (it distributes the heat even better…ask your wife). The pots were picked up at a local charity used goods store, quality all just for a few bucks…perfect for camping. Cheap, extremely functional, and relatively light weight. Happy baking!

  45. Paul Embling on September 16, 2019 at 8:30 pm

    Hi Mark, just catching up with the great videos you keep up loading, brilliant my friend, what a great idea. Just wondering where you obtained the aluminum for the spacers, they look neat? Hope you’re on the mend buddy, keep sharing, thanks.

  46. Joseph Sylwestrzak on September 16, 2019 at 8:31 pm

    looks tasty Mark

  47. Fattus99 on September 16, 2019 at 8:32 pm

    Fantastic bit of kit. Well done 👍

  48. Food For Thought on September 16, 2019 at 8:36 pm

    It’s a great way of baking. I made the exact same video 4 years ago. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K_YtPEefnuE.

  49. Nomadic Woodsman on September 16, 2019 at 8:36 pm

    This is awesome. Great info. Very tempted to try this. Baking goodness while camping mmmm

  50. Larry Lee on September 16, 2019 at 8:37 pm

    Value City could have a nice mail order business from your subs watching your videos. Seriously, I did a google about them. Impressive company.
