Stanley Cookpot

Postby Ridgerunner » Sat Jun 23, 2012 6:39 am

I was in Target the other day and ran across this Single walled Cookpot for $15 . It is stainless and the lid locks in place for storing and has straining holes for draining water off your pasta. The insulated cups are a bit heavy and it is far from being UL but for the price it is indestructible.

That's the way to start out.....rugged. will last a lifetime. Made me think of the rugged aluminum pot with locking lid that is made as a baking continer for crock pots. It's my favorite thrift store find. I buy one every time I see one in a thrift store :roll: I have 3....why do I do that??? I only pay 2-3 bucks for them. Anodized and rugged with locking and vented lid for straining if needed. No handle necessary, it can be lifted easily and securley by the knob on top. The pot was made to be lifted out of a crock pot so the knob is totally robust.

A GSI Glacier stainless cup fits on the bottom, and a Nalgene 32 oz HDPE water bottle (not the hard Tritan ones) will fit inside. Then it all tucks nicely into a 10 x 4 molle water bottle pouch.

I've seen pics where people set it in the fire and the green tab on the lid burns off right away, so if you're going to go that route, swap it out for a split key ring.

The lid fits on the small pot & lid from the Coleman Max set.

Might have to make a caldera clone for this one - it's bound to be tippy.
Any road followed precisely to its end leads precisely nowhere. Climb the mountain just a little bit to test that it's a mountain. From the top of the mountain, you cannot see the mountain.

The key ring idea sounds great. Put it only half way through it's coil and it may stay standing straight up to keep it cool and yet lay horizontal for storage(under a little pressure)

What do you mean by half round? It is rectangular. It lays down flat on the lid for storage. It is slightly larger than most silicon lid tabs out there. The unit would make a nice piece of kit for base camp, canoe/kayak trip, or thrown in the trunk of your vehicle for emergency use without having to worry about it getting damaged from other things rolling around in the trunk. OK, so my trunk is full of gear and yard sale treasures :oops: :lol:
