I never know if the Perga box "Speisequarg" in the Saiz's book , is original or not.
This ad. is very interesting and the Maggi's picture too as well.

Hi Dirk,
You would think there would be more examples of the Zentis products around, considering how popular the brand was. I have one jar and have only seen the lid you show and the can on Ostfronts site. Jim

I know Jim, these things are to find nowadays! Not many of these cans, bags or boxes were safed, they were thrown away use ...

best regards

I just got my copy of your book from Amazon, looks real good and a very interesting topic that until now has not been covered in any kind of detail.

On page 278 we identified this as a NKV stove. This is in fact an accessory piece issued with the steel carbide lantern accessories kit. This piece would be filled with petroleum and used instead of carbide. However its possible that some igenious soldiers figured out that it could be used to warm up rations.Jim
