Pot Cozies

It must be a Swedish thing: for 2007, both Primus and Optimus are introducing stove/pot systems that include insulated pot cozies. In your pack, these zippered bags can hold your pot, stove, and accessories – the same thing you’re probably doing now with a nylon stuff sack. But because they’re insulated, the new cozies also come in handy at meal time. If you’re cooking rice or par-boiling part of a meal, you can remove your pot from the stove once it’s come to a boil and put it into the cozy. The insulation will keep the heat in the pot and your food will continue to cook while you use the stove to prepare another part of the meal, or turn off the stove to conserve fuel.
