Good day to everyone.
Fourteen years ago, I received a package with recycled-paper packaging peanuts in it and wanted to do something with the packaging materiel. So, I found a second used cardboard box (the box I received was a good size for my principle stainless steel casserole) at the grocery store, bought duct tape (rather expensive here back then) and made a fire-less cooker. And it has served my family and I well through the years, through many periods of traveling with us. Yes, it did travel with us. But it has aged pretty well, all considering.
Upon seeing the cooker topic in the daily digest, I was happy because my cooker is going to need to go through a transformation from those two original cardboard boxes. And if anyone has any ideas on how to transform it, I would greatly appreciate knowing of them. We bought a house and land three years ago and the cooker needs to become something more permanent. Right now, it is in its original form on the kitchen floor, where it has to be cleaned of dog hair every few days when we use it. It cannot stay in the spot where it is because we plan to build a Walker Stove there. The spot where it is destined to be is under a 10 cm thick wood counter, which makes it that we will not be able to put a casserole in it from the top of the box, unless we somehow had that it was made as a drawer. But I cannot imagine that would be able to be stable enough to slide in without spills. Do you think that I could have the heat stay in well enough with an insulated door?
Well, I'm putting pictures of my cooker, which I moved onto the counter, above where it is destined to live under.
