Re: Cooking on a hot woodstove without metal?

I posed the question directly to Corningware: "Can I place a room-temperature pot of water onto the hot burner of a wood stove?” They answered: "Although the Visions pot would be able to handle the temperature difference, it will probably discolor with soot.” So there we have it, just like...

Re: Trees from seed

Have had some good success with apple crabs. Was given a bunch of apples from family and friends, a few different types, all excellent fruit. Harvested the seeds, germinated them in the fridge in early spring, and grew them in pots for a year, transplanted them on year two in spring. The thing with ...

Re: Cooking on a hot woodstove without metal?

Ah, thanks - I just used "Pyrex" and "Visions" interchangeably, thought it was all the same stuff. It looks like the confusion lies in the fact that Pyrex was/is marketted as "Visions": Pyrex, a brand name for break-resistant glass bakeware, has offered complimentary Am...

Re: Cooking on a hot woodstove without metal?

Splitting is my concern as well. Hadn't thought about a slow-cooker's inner pot, I'll have to scrounge garage sales for one this summer. The slow heat buildup makes sense to me, but if I can find a material that can withstand the temperature shock, the convenience of it is appealing.

Re: Cooking on a hot woodstove without metal?

I have a bunch of that as well, works fine on my electric stove, but I've never placed them on a burner that's already glowing. Are you placing your cool pots directly onto your hot wood burner? The impression I'm getting from the interwebs, is that they have to go onto a cool burner, and then the b...

Cooking on a hot woodstove without metal?

Is anyone cooking on a woodstove using a pot/pan made of a non-metallic material? I'm trying to prep against the possibility of, say, the military collecting all my loose metal for a war effort, leaving me with no way to cook food. Based on what I'm reading, it seems most modern ceramic baking pans ...

Re: Alternative Cooking Source?

I was indulging the internet last night, looking for small wood stoves, ran across a couple of neat designs. The first was out of Norway, called the GStove. It looks fantastic, maybe a little small, but it is designed for portability. Quite a few options that are suitable for cold weather survival. ...

Re: Cleanup

Well, it's time to upgrade this year. The sponge & cloth method works well, but I find it is not convenient enough for me to want to use it as often as I probably *should*. As I was bumbling through eBay & Amazon a few months ago, I found a battery-operated shower head. https://images-na.ssl...

Re: Lead Carbon Batteries

Man, there are some pretty lean days (City data) around winter solstice LOL. OTOH, that is a poorly optimized panel placement, if one were positioning for maximum power. It looks like the NAIT data is per-panel, which would yield some interesting numbers, but like you suggest, the data is not displa...
