I thought Peter was referring to the fact that the BCB is the first volcano kettle made in the US. :)
Anyway, I also tried out the potstand last night, just for the sake of trying it out. I have a potstand for my Kelly Kettle, which when assembled is basically an aluminum cross with a taper that sits in the chimney. It's stable, and bigger than the BCB's potstand. It was nice, for a while... but even using an alcohol stove in the Kelly Kettle when I tried it out, the stand actually melted.
The one that Devin came up with for the BCB is a three-piece dealie that when assembled forms a platform with 3 points of contact. When it has nothing on top of it, I have to say it does feel pretty filmsy, but when I put a 750ml Sierra cup with water and rice noodles on top, it felt solid and stable. It allowed me to boil water in the BCB while also bringing the water in the Sierra Cup to a light boil. Since it doesn't have a piece stuck down in the chimney, I don't think that it will share the Kelly Kettle's potstand melting problem.
Naturally, Murphy's Law prevailed this summer regarding my using the BCB, so I haven't had a chance to try it in the field. :-/
