    You're right, of course. My package just got delivered - which was pretty quick and everything is in order:)

    It is a very nice piece of equipment - hardly larger than a bottle of mineral water when packed up - I think think I'll go for a brew up with it in the kitchen! With this you can have a brew up anywhere in a jiffy (Using an alcohol stove inside). You could probably make yourself a cuppa in a shopping centre and no-one would mind!

    Hi
    I cant find the post that someone was asking about his volcano bottle going green inside
    But as there are loads looking at the group buys posted it here
    To stop it you must dry out the bottle compleatly if left for some time between use
    I do this by using kitchen paper towels
    Tip the bottle upside down and stand as long as you can to drain
    I then pull off two towels keeping them together and roll them into a loose long tube about the size of the neck of the bottle
    Push down into the base of the bottle and leave about 20mm sticking out of the neck
    Place in the sunlight and allow the paper to absorb the moisture inside
    Works on drinking bottles also
    Small amount of baby bottle steriliser or week bleach will remove all green if already green
    rinse out well before using
    Mick

    Hi Chris,

    I bought a cooker in your first group buy – love it. Anyway, my mate came around yesterday took one look at it and said – get me one!

    If possible please could you add my name to the list, of if not could I go on a list for any not claimed?

    Thanks for your efforts,

    Andy

    Quick update - have repeatedly tried to re-contact the german supplier without a response to date.

    Harryhaller - If you offer still stands I guess I'll be sending you some emails.

    If there is a supplier problem http://www.europeanarmysurplus.co.uk are selling them for £6.75 but you have to buy 12 at a time, just type swiss into the search box. You need an account but I opened mine easy enough with them (need to log in to see the prices).

    Rik,

    EAS is the british supplier that I've already contacted. In theory they are cheaper from Germany, hence the emails etc, but thanks for your help.

    Hi, is this group buy likely to happen ?
    I'm honestly not being impatient, but i am going on a camping trip soon and would love to take one along to try, if its not looking likely i will look at getting hold of one elsewhere.

    Mmm. Got an email from both suppliers on Friday so need to shaje it up again. I'll email them tomorrow (if I get a chance) and get back to you all shortly. I assume that noone else wants to drop out?
