Torq-Masters Industries Acquires ORIS Skottle


Rochester, New York, July 9, 2024


Torq-Masters Industries is excited to announce the acquisition of the ORIS Skottle product line from a longtime friend and fellow offroad enthusiast, Ryan Chapman, president of Off Road Industries. Torq-Masters has been cooking with the ORIS Skottle for many years and thoroughly enjoys camp and event cooking on the ORIS Skottle.


What is a Skottle?

A Skottle is a cooking device/technique developed in South Africa using old steel plow disks over campfire coals. There have been a number of iterations in the US over the years, which Torq-Masters has used and cooked with. The ORIS  Skottle in our opinion is the superior Skottle on the market due to the cast iron cooking surface and the easy ability to remove the cast iron pan to use a pot, kettle, or a wok on the burner and stand.



What can you cook on the ORIS Skottle?

Here are some common uses:


  1. Stir-fries: The large, flat cooking surface of the Oris Skottle makes it ideal for cooking stir-fries. You can cook a wide range of ingredients including vegetables, meat, and tofu, creating delicious and flavorful meals.


  1. Breakfast dishes: The Oris Skottle is perfect for cooking breakfast outdoors. You can fry bacon, sausages, and eggs, or even make pancakes and hash browns, providing a hearty and satisfying start to your day.


  1. Grilling: While not a traditional grill, the Oris Skottle can be used to grill meats, seafood, and vegetables. Simply season your ingredients and cook them on the hot surface for a delicious grilled flavor.


  1. One-pot meals: You can also use the Oris Skottle to cook one-pot meals such as stews, curries, and chili. Simply add your ingredients to the Skottle and let them simmer until they’re cooked to perfection.


  1. Steaming Seafood or Cooking Pasta. You can add water to the ORIS pan to steam seafood. To cook pasta take the ORIS pan off, put a pasta pot on the burner and in a few minutes you’ll have perfectly cooked pasta.


  1. Outdoor events: The Oris Skottle is great for outdoor events such as picnics, camping trips, tailgating, and backyard barbecues. Its portable design and easy setup make it a convenient option for cooking delicious meals wherever you go.



Overall, the Oris Skottle offers a versatile cooking experience, allowing you to prepare a wide range of dishes outdoors with ease. Whether you’re cooking for yourself, your family, or a group of friends, the Oris Skottle is sure to impress with its performance and reliability.

Torq-Masters is excited to bring the ORIS brand to Overland shows and trips, Off-Road events and shows as well as opening into the wider Outdoor Sports and Recreation and RV industries.
