When it comes to prepping, every item, like the humble #10 can, has several uses. For one, you can even use a #10 can to make a versatile can oven. (h/t to TheSurvivalistBlog.net)
If you’re looking for a way to recycle and at the same time save some cash, the #10 can oven is right up your alley. The #10 can oven is perfect if you want to learn how to make SHTF food-ready items using your wood-burning stove.
To turn the can into a makeshift oven, follow the steps below:
Take note that if you forget to refill the water in your can trivet, the bread may turn a bit tough. Experiment with recipes for bread, potatoes, or mini-pizzas, and factor in the smaller cooking space that you’ll have with your #10 can oven when measuring the ingredients.

You can start with a basic bread recipe, then adjust the measurements as you bake until you get the perfect measurements suited to the #10 can oven. Since you’re steaming the bread as it bakes, the final product will have a consistency similar to both a bagel and a muffin.
If you’re a fan of flatbread and you own two same-sized skillets, you can also cook on a makeshift Dutch oven. Just set one skillet on your stove, then invert the other one on top of the first skillet. Now you can start making your own flatbread and small pizzas.
Because you’re recycling #10 can and a 7.5-oz can for this oven, you won’t have to spend a single dime. Using the money you save by baking your own bread, you can buy more food for your stockpile or other survival gear that you might still need.
With your creativity, you can turn anything into whatever you need, as preppers often do.
If you have spare #10 cans, you can also use them for other survival purposes, such as:
