As some of you may be aware a large part of my touring holidays include getting as much food on the BBQ as possible. So when I see something like the Aquaforno I cannot help but share the love. This is a must have have kit for anyone who enjoys their cooking when touring, especially with the great weather this summer is going to produce.

Award-winning outdoor cooking stove specialist, Aquaforno, has started a craze for its next generation "Kitchen in a backpack", after breaking through 850% of its Indiegogo crowdfunding target.

"We're over the moon with the interest and the backing we've received from people so far. There has been a strong reaction in all corners of the world recently which shows that it really resonates with those that love being outside and enjoy eating good food.

"With only nine days left before we have to close the campaign we are trying to let everyone know they can still get an Aquaforno at our cheapest ever pricing."

The huge rise in outdoor living is adding the the unit's success. Globally there are a lot more people embracing the outdoors and taking a lot more holidays close to home, AKA the 'Staycation'. People are keen to buy into the idea of lifestyle enhancing products - Aquaforno does exactly that for people who are passionate for the great outdoors and love great food.

The highly desirable Aquaforno II adds split level grill, rotisserie, smoking hangers, and double insulated lid to the original concept's feature set which already encompasses a BBQ grill, pizza oven, smoker and water boiler in one collapsible unit.

This new 'Swiss army-knife' of outdoor cooking has been received with incredible enthusiasm since it was unveiled at the UK's Caravan, Camping and Motorhome Show the home of Britain's RV sector.

The portable kitchen has yet another fantastic feature, a 3 minute assembly time. So if you are super hungry you can get cooking in just 3 minutes flat.

The Aquaforno II cooks anything from a Sunday roast to breakfast pancakes, to paella, with consummate ease. It is the ultimate combination of Hunting, tailgating, Prepping and glamping product and can even cater quickly and efficiently for large groups, e.g. cooking as many as twenty delicious restaurant quality pizzas per hour.

"Aquaforno II is designed to bring people together outdoors," continues Rhodes. "Whether you're at a camping site, on the beach, on a fishing expedition or in the back yard, it can go where you go and cater for all your outdoor needs".

This little gem is more than just a kitchen. You can use it as a fire pit, dry your clothes with a hand clip on hook as well as enjoying hot drinks with its unique removable dishwasher-friendly boiler that provides a litre of boiling water in as little as minutes.

In addition to the new outdoor gastronomical possibilities, the Aquaforno II includes a double insulated lid for enhanced temperature stability. Its adjustable vent and new thermometer allows for temperature control, and a clever spark arrestor has been built in for extra safety. It also has spring-loaded legs to reduce set-up time and a more user-friendly, sturdier, door mechanism.

If you are in the market for a new BBQ/grill for your touring home, even if you are not you may want to upgrade to this, the Aquaforno II will make you the one to watch on site while you make pizza and roast whole chickens.
