They Heineken pot is extremely difficult to find because they switched to a different can. Occasionally, people find them, but randomly and not often. Check out Trail Designs for a Foster's pot, though. I haven't bought one yet, but it looks excellent for when my pots eventually fail.

The Fosters can seems larger/longer and isn't a durable. The Heineken Keg is bomb proof!!

batchstovez.com sells the Foster can with Fiberglass wrap.

Fosters is one of the worst beers (especially in a can) that I've ever had. I cannot in good conscience support their patronage. =)

I ment the quality of the can as a pot not the actual beer

Re: Heineken pot (do it yourself) on 04/04/2012 23:09:36 MDT Print View

Dillon -
I know you want a ready made one, but it is easy to do it yourself. (I make my own)
To do this, you'll need:

1.)"Good Cook Safe Cut Can Opener" - it does a side cut and will take off the lid, just like the commercially available pot. The lid will not have a sharp edge. I see from a quick google search they now range from $12-18 bucks, and are a newer single arm design. I have the older double arm model and it works great.

2.) For the lid handle you can do two approaches:

2.A) Use needle-nose pliers to carefully bend the pull tab up to use as a handle (caution - it gets hot).

2.B) Just cut it off, and use a wooden knob from Mini Bull Designs:

The can is not as durable as the Heineken Keg can but still makes a great pot. It may dent but the dents are easy to pop back out. They are taller, so I can fit my cone, 4oz fuel bottle, medicine measuring cup, and the stove itself as a lid all in the can. I couldn't fit my fuel bottle in the Heineken can.

I just wrap my camp towel around the kit wen i toss it in my pack. No problems so far.
