silicone bowl for Imusa mug/pot

Post by zelph » Thu Sep 26, 2013 9:05 pm

I found a source for these generic silicone bowls. The bowl on the right is a Sea to Summit brand. They both have a capacity of about 1-1/2 cups. The Sea to Summit is too flimsy. The generic has a rigid rim that makes for easy handling when filled with hot or cold water. The collapsed bowl fit securely on top of an aluminum 12cm 4 cup Imusa mug/pot. The generic weighs 2.1 ounces and the Sea to Summit weighs 2 ounces. The bowl fits snug on top of the pot for storage of items inside.

Sea to Summit bowl:

The bowl is multi purpose, lid and bowl ;) I'm going to do some baking in it to see how well it does. I'll also try poaching some eggs in the bowl. If the bowl works out well(it should) I'll make the pots and bowl available at http://www.zelphs-stoveworks.com.

I almost poached 2 eggs in the bowl the other day. The pot ran out of steam :mrgreen: and had to shut the burner off on my kitchen stove. didn't want to burn the bottom of my pot :o I'll be doing more test now that I know how much water is needed to get the job done. I finished cooking the eggs via the microwave with a 15 second zappo. :P I covered the bowl with a sheet of aluminum tooling foil. Coulda used heavy aluminum foil. The rigid upper edge of the bowl is easy to lift the hot bowl off the pot. The little thumb size tab on the bowl is super handy to hold onto while eating. Ketchup and eggs go well together ;)

I'll do more experimenting :D

I think this is a great idea.
I'll be doing something similar...
I drink coffee and my girlfriend drinks tea.
I will boil water in my 700ml cup using the silicon bowl as a lid, then I'll pour about half the water in the silicone bowl for my coffee

Dan, I do not recall seeing these generic collapsible bowl lids and the Imusa cups on your site(but that is not saying much since some days I.....what was I saying?

Do you still carry this IMUSA pot and generic collapsible bowl combination?

Dan,
I will take the collapsible bowl.
If you do not mind, please hold the bowl until we figure what else is going in this order so I only have to pay one invoice.

OK. First the last remaining Fosters flat bottom pot stand (I love the no slide feature) and now the last remaining collapsible bowl IMUSA lid. What other exciting left overs do you have?
Regards,
Paul
