Here is what the site says about tin cans and the coating.

Canned foods play an important role in food storage. But substances used in making tin cans are strictly controlled to make sure they don't get into the food itself.

Most foods contain very low concentrations of tin. Canned foods may contain higher levels because the tin coating used to protect the steel body of the can from corrosion can slowly transfer into the food.

The resins that are used to coat the insides of some food cans contain the chemical bisphenol-A. This coating allows canned food to be heated to kill off bacteria without the metal in the can getting into the food contents.




Health issues
No long-term health effects are associated with consuming tin. But it can cause stomach upsets such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal cramps and bloating in some sensitive people at levels above 200 milligrams per kilogram. This is the maximum legal amount of tin that can be present in canned foods.

There are also limits for tin for particular categories of cans:

Nice work oops, nice infra red toy :D

Your tests blew my theory of extreme temps at the the top of the pot.

How much water was in the pot?

I wonder if you were reading temps of the steam coming out of the top of the stove instead of the metal temps. What think you?

Thanks a lot for doing those tests. That last stove sure does roar!!!

I have to say I'm sorry. My new cookpot is RidgeRunner's find. Sorry man, I remember reading that post now that you pointed it out. Often I read so much information that some of it just keeps on flowing and falls out of the mental sponge. :oops:

Sorry!

No apology, man, It's cool. Nice of you to bring it back up. Too bad the pot is steel instead of aluminum. :roll: Hey, you found a lid that fit it perfect. :D
