Mine wander off making a wood burner out of it :shock:

Product in Inches (L x W x H): 4.0 x 3.5 x 9.6


I wonder if the stainless part is 4.0 x 3.5 What did you see at WallyWorld in regards to that?

I do like to actually cook...


I'm a little late getting to you on that :o What are a couple of meals that you actually cook and do you simmer?

I checked it out the other day at WallyWorld! It states it is not meant to be used for hot liquids. I assume this is due to possibly deforming the seal which is attached to the bottom of the top half of the bottle. Seems to me that the Ss bottom could be used as a Cookpot and when the top is attached, it could be a used to carry water as a canteen. Now, if it only had a handle :roll: ......you could always use one of Zelph's silicone pot wraps ;) The bottle has unique possibilities :geek:

Yeah, even if I can't carry my coffee in it with the lid on, I can still BREW my coffee in it without the lid on. The multitask properties of this may make it a weight saver.
Zelph, you asked what I like to cook:
that all depends, if I'm in the southeast mountains in June I'm probably gonna make blueberry pancakes, provided the deer have left some berries. I usually pack rice or couscous. I like to carry olive oil and usually some sort of baking or cornbread mix, just in case. The fishing might be good, or their may be some wild onions or garlic that would mix well with the jerky after I soak it. Once in a while I may run into some mustard wort or Solomon's seal and want to make a stew. My boys actually like to catch crawdads, then we have the makings for an etoufee or even some lightweight gumbo, not to mention a scampi. If i'm in the smokies, there's no telling what may be dined upon with the multifarious flora that grows year round. To help understand my philosophy, I may have times when I cover a lot of ground, but I never rush the times along the trail when we sit to nourish ourselves, both of food and the wilderness about us. Simmering something delicious gives us a moment to reflect, a moment of anticipation to savor the goodness slowly bubbling atop a homemade burner. I do also occasionally take freeze dried meals or even nothing but rich trail mix for a weekender but I always like to have options...

The stainless portion is about 6 3/8" in height, just under 3 1/2" in diameter at the top, and just under 2 3/4" across at the bottom. It also has graduation marks for 16 oz. and for 20 oz. ;) I picked one up to tinker with but for now, it is a spillproof ice water container for work 8-)

I was hoping for 3 1/2 by 4. thanks for getting those for me. :)

Nice....that's a philosophy all us should have. My mind wandered there for a bit thinking about crawdad tails peeled and quick fried in olive oil using a "one egg wonder" skillet over a homeade burner. A few pieces of minced garlic in there also to freshen them up.
