“What you see . . . is what you get”  (Cooking Pot not included)


Kariba Combo K2 EI 4.1Lwas designed with input gained from customers over the past twelve years.  The original concept and unique features of our Kariba Combo model K1-EI have filtered through to this model to render historic performance and reliability.    Added to this, more features have been incorporated in the design to offer a complete one piece dual purpose appliance manufactured for outdoors use, camping and overland adventures.   This user friendly gas appliance incorporates a powerful gas burner which is manually controlled for safety and reliability, and which includes an Italian made electronic “push button” flame ignition system.   The top body houses a copper fined heat exchanger which pivots upwards ninety degrees to reveal a cooker which can accommodate a large pot or pan for cooking.  This model delivers a controlled rising of ambient water temperature up to 45 degrees plus centigrade by adjusting the on/off gas control valve.  The gas control knob determines the flame height to the heat exchanger and which can deliver up to six HOT showers per hour.  During power outages at home, this model can also be used as a back-up to even run a bath or cook a hot meal.     The water supply can be connected to a conventional  hose from a tap if limiting the water flow to a maximum of 3.5L per minute.   The quality German 12V DC submersible pump kit supplied can be used to circulate water flow, and which is standard and included equipment.   The pump delivers 4.1L water flow per minute at a head height of two meters.  This pump can fit into a 20L water Jerry Can cap, and the water flow can be restricted when necessary.   This “all in one” appliance allows for a table top cooking application, showering, washing of dishes and clothing for example when being used outdoors and during camping.   The Kariba Combo K2-EI 4.1L is the flag ship in the Kariba Combo range of appliances, preferred by camper trailer owners, mobile homes and holiday home owners for its compact and unique features.     A worthy pioneer and a popular choice by customers of our Kariba Products range.  As this appliance is operated with LP Gas, responsible operation is advised.
