My preheating pot stand design, for homemade drinks can alcohol stoves
Made from 2 standard food tins
Primes the stove with a tealight in the base
and holds the pot!
No messy priming pan to set your sleeves on fire
Sturdy construction; more stable than wobbly bent-coathanger types
Flame pattern fits most pot sizes
Ideal for emergency home use, eg in the event of a power cut
Jagged edges - be careful when cutting cans!
When the burner is lit and fully hot, the tealight can be blown out.
(250ml water: 6 min boil time)
Ideal for simmering or cooking.
Or the tealight can be left burning, for a faster boil.
(250ml water: 3 min 30 sec)
