Maker Story

Pocket Pan

Bear Minimum is the missing link for a complete survival kit. The signature Bear Bowls were created by Cory Santiago, who’s embraced the great outdoors of the Pacific Northwest since childhood. After working in manufacturing for more than 15 years, the adventurous husband and father of five sought to manufacture his own dream product: an item that could improve how campers prepare food. Partnering with his wife, Heidi, the pair cooked up the ideal solution.

The resulting Bear Bowls are a camper’s kitchen lifesaver. Crafted of fire-resistant Teflon, they fold into a compact packet that fits in a pocket. Use them to boil water, rehydrate meals, and cook food over a controlled flame. The slick surface snaps together to make a pot, pan, skillet, or plate, plus effortlessly washes clean so you can eat and repeat while enjoying the elements.
