I’ve been assuming these were IMUSA Grease Dispensers because where I’ve been buying them they are with other IMUSA products…after a bit of surfing I’m not too sure now. The IMUSA pots I see on the web and sold at Wally World are larger and look different.

I’ve only found them at CVS Pharmacy drug stores and picked up another couple today for $4.99 each. The mug is 10 cm and the capacity is 0.8 qt…the practical capacity is 3 cups. I’ve found a similar grease dispenser at Amazon – Bene Casa (http://www.amazon.com/Bene-65119-1-quart-strainer-dispenser/dp/B001F3BGJK)

Anyway I’ve been using the strainer piece as a base to insulate alcohol stoves from the ground. It occurred to me last week that I could modify it into an integrated stand for the pot…so off to the hardware store for some stainless screws (8-32 x 2”), nuts, washers and lock washers. I also picked up a piece of 3/16” aluminum tubing to make sleeves/spacers. They are not really necessary but hide the threads and make for a nicer appearance.

The hole I cut in the strainer was really for another unfinished ideal, but it lets the burner sit a little lower so I’m claiming it was a deliberate design element. :rolleyes:

A standard size popcan stove works well with this setup. I haven’t timed it yet, but it will get the 3-cup capacity of the pot to a boil. I’ll wager it would work well with a Penny stove too. The strainer/stand stows back in its original place along with a 4” high roof flashing windscreen.

Some flame photos and I just discovered the stand will fit over the top of a Swede Military burner…I guess that hole really was a part of my design after all. :D
