    Not a bad price either. Vegetable steamer included. Might get scary on a fire with the lid clamped down... :rolleyes:

    How many atmosphere is that rated for?
    Lets stick a cornish hen, some celery and carrots and a splash of water in there and see how fast she cooks :D

    Drill a hole in it's lid same size as the one in the Keith Ti cooker and create a mini low pressure cooker for the cornish hen ;).

    Just before you seal it add a tablespoon full of carbide to the water. Now it gets more exciting lol

    Yes, it comes with a steamer basket also and an added feature is the bail handle for hanging over the hot coals of your wood fire.

    Looks like it would make a decent bush pot if, it's food safe (not all stainless containers are rated food safe), and if the seal in the lid can hold up to the heat generated by steam ?

    Slightly smaller one even cheaper.
    Comes with free shipping ...
    If it doesen't work with tea, can always give to the artist in the house.

    Looks like it'll hold 2 cups. Nice to leave home with water sealed in it, go on a day hike and have hot cuppa at some point on the trail using a small twig fire to heat it up in the same container.

    The small one around 590cc
    The bigger one 740cc

    Might work for rehydrating meals but heavy as itself.

    I want one. The seller is away right now. The other ones are the same but more expensive. I will wait.

    Put the meal in the pot and just warm it up for lunch. This looks like fun.

    They had one of those on clearance at Micheal's (big box craft store) a couple of weeks ago. They wanted $25 for it and I just couldn't do it. Neat looking pot though!

    Do you recall if it was typical stainless, or was it that real thin stuff?
    I had some SS pots that were so thin they cracked. One of them anyway.

    I'll say this - I seriously considered buying for a little cook pot. I thought it would work great, I just couldn't justify the cost AND I was still in a new gear buying black-out. ;)

    Kinda looks like a 21st century Mucket. I have one about this size for my cooking demo at the park.

    Wifey & I stopped by our local " Hobby Lobby " today.

    This items looks pretty darn close, to the one being sold on Amazon :33:

    But, it's way toooo small, for cooking anything that would satisfy my appetite :56:

    Looks like it would hold about a pound of BACON or CHOCOLATE. That should do it.

    Yeah, it is really an artists brush cleaner and kinda small for cooking a meal. Maybe for brewing a tea...

    My Paws are approx " 3 3 /4 inches across " the Palm.

    I.E.
    : 5.LARGE SIZE: 5.12" height, 3.54" diameter, can hold enough solvents

    In my world .. A medium cup of " Coffee or Tea ".. Or possibly, a Cup of Noodles Soup ? :33:

    The sealable lid would be good for soaking beans, lentils, etc., while you are hiking.

    Looks like roughly the same dimensions as the Stanley Adventure — which is a great shape and size — but no mods needed to hang over a fire.

    Good price.

    I may get one, you know, for Abby. ;) She likes doing art on the trail and she's looking forward to painting when the temps warm up again.

    So have you bought this pot? Do you own this pot? Or are you just dangling so we will buy this pot.

    I think you should buy this pot.

    I love this kinda stuff! :) It's amazing the products that are out there that can be used for other uses. I picked up some glass jars from hobby lobby a couple years ago, that had the locking lids. They were marketed as some kind of jar you put flowers or poporee smelly stuff in. They were also marked food grade, so I use them to hold dehydrated veggies when I am summer traveling.

    Sure. Just type in metal bento box and you'll get all sorts of snappy things that nest together :)
