    My Pot Cozy projects yesterday

    The pots that I used was an Imusa 12cm, GSI Duelist, and GSI Bugaboo (only the smaller pan and frying pan). With the Imusa pot I wrapped some extra reflectix around the handle, but have not tested it while cooking yet. With the Bugaboo set the frying pan sits above the lid.

    I was surprised how long that it took to do these, but I am glad that I have them done.

    I have done the same for a 1 qt. Ziploc twist top container and an Evernew 0.9L pot. Did take a bit longer than I envisioned, but what the heck, not a bad way to spend some time puttering on some little project. Also put a piece of refletix inside the airspace of a Whirley cup. Just pop off the bottom and in it goes. This space is also good for tiny what-nots like a spare book/box of matches, tea bags, individual serving size instant coffee, individual sugar packages, handi-wipes, kleenex and what have you.

    In theory, there's no difference between theory and reality.
    In reality, there is.

    Nice job. It always takes me ages to put one together. The guys on YT make it look so simple! What a great idea wrapping the reflectex (sp?) stuff on the handle of the Imusa mug. That thing gets hot hot HOT! Have you used on a stove since doing that?

    The burn test with the Imusa pot was a failure. The hangle still got hot and started melting.

    See attached pics.

    Bummer. I've seen people wrap the handle with wicking and then dip it in plasti-dip.

    I just use a small rag or my shirt sleeve to grab it.

    Nice work on the cozies. They do take a bit of time to construct, but I'm finding the more I make the quicker it goes.

    Instead of sugru. Look up oogoo. It's way way cheaper( cuz u make it) equal parts corn starch n 100% silcone. More uses then reflectix.
    Dunno about temps but helps keep the cozy stand upright. My iPhone safe. And working towards a handle for my bk14.
