You can use it for whatever you want--no problem. Cast iron isn't very good to cook tomato dishes in. It doesn't have to be used for camping (unless it is the kind with the "feet".). It's just a cast iron pot.

There are three legs and a single or doubel prong in teh center. You put the prong through the lid hole. Squeeze the handles and you have the lid tightly held. You can pour coals/ashes right off a hot lid without fear of dropping or tipping it against your hand. One leg has a hook for lifting the bail. Really great tool.

There are other hook type lifters out there that work well too, but they're not as versatile as the Mair.

Your link doesn't work so I'm sort of guessing you have a tripod sort of setup. Anyway, I also have a pair of pliers that are a bit offset like the channel lock and that have a little hook to catch the bail. In about 20 years of camping don't believe I ever emptied any coals on myself--and had a lot less to pack around with us.

I looked up the lid lifter and it is indeed a neat little tool. Have never seen one in any camping catalog I have read (and I read and ordered from Cabela's a LOT) but we stopped camping pretty muchwhen the kids left. I think this might be relatively new.

Thanks. I was afraid I had ruined a 50 year old pot.

I have to agree with thymeless. The Mair lid lifter is definitely the cadillac of lid lifters!
