I am planning on using my Starlyte for cooking purposes this weekend. Temps are forecasted to be in the single digits.

Good News about the StarLyte UltraLyte.

You can now simmer with it by putting it inside of a Fancey Feast or Friskies cat food can and also potted meat cans of the same size.

The combined weight of the simmer can and stove is 19 grams. ( .6702052770420278 Ounces )

I used an aluminum 3 cup pot for testing. It weighs 91 grams. ( 91 Grams = 3.2099305374118176 Ounces )

I was able to simmer 2 cups of water for 22 min. with 1/2 ounce of fuel. The temperature was held at 198 degrees with the lid on.

Last night I made quite a few tests to see how the simmer device works. Tests were consistantly positive. It's easy to pick up the stove once a boil is acheived and place it into the pot and return the pot of water to the stove.

This method of simmering may work on alot of existing stoves.

This idea originated in a thread started by DarenN. He devised a means of simmering with the Fancee Feest stove. It's amazing how ideas can creat new ideas. Thank You Daren!!!!

You can use aluminum foil Oops, the can is more of a permanent thing. A place to store the stove for added protection :)
