Would any one know of a place where i could buy an insulated double walled pot. 1litre capacity is large enough.

I already have one . However i would like a couple more.

To explain. The pots have two walls or two sides. Between the inner and outer walls there is insulation in most cases vermiculite.

The bottom part is not doubled.

Making one is possible. But brazing thin aluminum is not easy.

I'm not familiar with a pot that has sandwiched sides and a single layer bottom. What is its purpose?
It's used in colder northern places.

It can almost cut your heating time in half. Especially when it's -20c outside with some wind.

BTW the lid is also coated with some form of insulation.

It works with bottom only flame and or including side flame stoves.

You can build them yourself.

It takes two pots, one smaller than the other leaving at least 1/4" spacing where you will fill with vermiculite (pakced tight).

The smaller internal pot obviously has it's handle cut off.

Use good quality aluminum tape (aka muffler tape) to seal the inter spacing.

Use the original lid of the larger pot as a cover.

If you wish you can have some one braze an aluminum seal (ring) over the inter space and the pot rims.

Double walled pots by Kuhn Rikon

Kuhn Rikon makes double walled pots. Available at:

Kuhn Rikon Swiss Thermal Cookware - FactoryDirect2you.com

They also have a cool single wall pot that has a melamine shell you put the pot into:

I looked for a long time to find these double walled pots for cooking on our wood stove. For folks that have never heard of this type of pot... They are NOT for camping. They are used to slow cook food with a very small amount of energy in a cool environment. The heat goes into the pot on the bottom, and the food at the top of the pot is cooked evenly with the food on the bottom. You don't have to lift the lid and stir, losing heat and moisture.

Hope this helps
