"Ridgeline" lightweight pot series

Post by zelph » Sat Sep 24, 2011 11:45 am

Coming soon to the store is the "Ridgeline" series of pots. I've perfected making the ridgelines on the Fosters and other light gauge aluminum cans.

The ridges have eliminated the durrogatory flexing most noted in the Fosters cans light weight walls of the can. They were easily crinkled with slight hand pressure. It's gone now and the strength in the can has increased hundred fold.

the Fosters weigh 25 grams (my new 6 gram stove coupled up with a fosters Hmmmm!) My wife is going to want the pair. :D

I made even better today by increasing the height of the ridges. Makes for an awsome improvement on the fosters and other thin metal cans. Works on pop cans also. It's hard to get my hand inside the pop cans though :shock:

Look at the photo and see the difference in ridge height. Which one is higher?

Which football team has the colors green and gold? :mrgreen:

The ridges should make a difference in boil times vs smooth sided cans.

New pot looks great! In looking at the cut off version looks like lip is turned into pot. Could it be turned out as well? May keep food or other gunk from getting under lip if used for something other than boiling water.

Creative thinking there Zelph. Good job.

I like those a lot. I might even be persuaded to leave my woodstove at home to carry some THAT light.
