For our 10 year wedding anniversary my husband bought me (among other things) a traditional gift of “tin”, this lovely IMUSA Grease Pot aka lightweight cookpot with built in lid and removable strainer. (Yes, this is something I very much appreciated and he isn’t in trouble at all.)

I will use this with my teenie tiny lightweight alcohol stove.  To save fuel I will enhance the cooking time of one boil by insulating this pot with a heat reflective cozy.  Here’s how I made the cozy from a $6 solar shield for the car windshield.  I had lots of material leftover so I made a cozy for a smaller pot I have as well and still have tons of material left.  I’d like to add that making the cozy was as much fun as receiving the cookpot.
