I'm looking for something made of aluminum that you can eat and drink from plus use it to boil water.

Thanks Dave.

The reason I'm looking for Aluminum is the price. I was hoping to spend about $15 max.

For $30 I can go titanium. Maybe I should just bite the bullet and do it.

Ed -

GSI and a couple other companies make anodized aluminum versions of both. REI and EMS carry them (or carried - never know how long they keep things in stock). I have the GSI version of the pot (750ml). REI has a set that includes the 1.25 liter version of the pot plus a mug that all nest together to hold a small canister stove (don't see the 3/4 liter pot I have, though). These may be above your 50 cent price range, though. Maybe you can cut the top off a beer can and sand the edge down a bit ;)

Ed, I have that Primus pot Dave linked. I like it. It will hold a small canister stove like the Micron and a little Snowpeak canister, plus matches, lighter, etc.

Bill's idea is a good one-get one of those big Foster's cans and use a side cutting can opener to cut the top off-that way, you can drink the beer and still use the lid on your new pot. I've seen them on UL sites. If it gets dented, just crack open another one-hehehe.

It's funny you mention the Foster can. I have one on my desk right in front of me (with the lid cut off with the side can opener). It's my pen/pencil holder.

Ed, A guy named Jason Klass has a website with homemade gear such as a lightweight beer can pot and stove set on it. For some strange reason, I can't post the link here. Either my browser or the website won't let me do it, but if you search for "Jason Klass" on Yahoo, you will find it. He even shows how to wrap some insulation around the can so you can pick it up without burning your fingers.

Jason's site is http://www.freewebs.com/jasonklass/

(Tom, Freewebs is notorious for hosting spam sites, so posts tying to link to it got caught by our filters.)
