aluminum foil lid! on 08/24/2006 10:15:49 MDT Print View

Hi there,

The lid that comes with the titanium pot is too heavy. Don' t take it into the backcountry. Replace it (as most folks do) with some aluminum foil.

Here's what I've found.

The best aluminum foil is from an old turkey basting pan. (or an old pie tin)

And here's why:
=========

* Easy to cut.

* Easy to pack.

* Stays on if you do a tidy crimp job.

* .3 ounces for a 1.5 liter pot

* Put a rock on top to keep it from blowing away!

* The aluminium foil that comes in a roll is problematic. It just gets too crinkly.
