DIY Hotlips to stop me burning my lips on hot pot on 11/01/2011 21:46:28 MDT Print View

I all

Just wondering if there is some way for me to make something like the Hotlips snowpeak makes ??

I am lightening my cook pot to a 450ml titanium mug but know that the top edge will get heated after being on the stove.
By the time that cools enough to use it as a cup the drink will be cold too !!

Is there some way I can make or do something to alow me to drink straight out of the hot cup without burning my lips ??
I could possibly make some DIY hotlips from heated plastic or something ??
I'd just by some hotlips but living in Australia no one sells them here and the US retailers want a stupid amount for postage of such a small item....

Would one of those silicone wristbands work for you? You should be able to find one for cheap.

The wristband should fit the 450 mug fine. You can use this stuff also

Thanks for the Sugru comment.
Picked some up from ebay UK cheap.

I can make a few of my own hotlips now and a few other items if need be.

Excellent.
