Fancee Feest simmer

Postby DarenN » Thu Apr 03, 2008 11:42 am

the board has been too quiet the last couple days. :(

i came up with an idea to make Zelph's F/F simmer. it works quite well.

slide it down a bit for a little more heat.

DarenN,
It looks like it works great, But I don't totaly understand what You did.
Did You make a taller FF? Or is the FF inside the Beer Can?

It looks like the potstand raises and lowers. What keeps it from lowering under the weight of the pot? OR is the two different potstand inserts? Regardless, I like the results !! ;) Good idea, DarenN

actually, it's a sleeve that fits around the outside of the F/F. it's the sleeve that is raised and lowered to control the simmer rate.

the can was cut open down the side, cut to the right hieght, and wrapped around the F/F while it was burning, and without removing the Heiney pot.

Duh--should have noticed that. There is enough spring in the wrap to hold to the sides of the FF w/o sliding down?

when i first tried this the can slid down, as you suggest it might.
i simply rolled the can a bit tighter and it grabs the stove just fine.
