A while back I bought a "GSI Halulite MicroDualist"- a cooking and eating combo kit. http://www.gsioutdoors.com/products/pdp/pinnacle_dualist/.

It is a very nifty set, and works well.....except that the lid will melt into your pot if exposed to the slightest flame.
As someone who enjoys remote camping, I need my gear to be durable, so I set out to upgrade this pitiful plastic lid to something that will stand the test of time.

btw minimalist is not a word. A friend recently told me this. But new words are being added to the english language all the time. I heard on NPR the other day that F-bomb is being added to the 2012 Merriam-Webster Dictionary.True story.  So I am going to continue saying minimalist.

Step 1: Supplies and Materials

To make a new lid, you will need:
  • A large metal cannister with a bottom as large in circumference as the pot. I used a small beer keg.
  • A drill
  • Metal sheet cutter or Dremmel
  • Sandpaper
  • Pliers
