I was offered a 4th burner pot to review.

4th burner pot??  What is that?  

I did a quick search and found that this narrow pot is called that because it is a small diameter and will fit on that fourth burner when the entire stove is full and a big pot just won't squeeze in there.  (We've all been there with our canners right?) 

Or maybe it is because this pot is supposed to be so handy for you you'll never want to put it away and will just store it on your "4th burner".

Sounds interesting,

it is stainless steel (I love SS)

made by Kuhn Rikon, that's a quality name,

I figured it might be good.   I'd better not pass it up!

So ... I said sure I'll give it a try.  I'm glad I said I'd check it out.  I'm loving it. 

It is a tea kettle / pot / strainer/ measuring container all wrapped up into one stainless steel quality pot.  The lid is glass so you can see what is going on inside.  There are measuring lines built right into the sides of the interior. A stainless steel basket is included for steaming or blanching and..... pretty red silicone handles to boot!  

Perfect for dehydrating

I do a lot of dehydrating and I was tickled to find that this is the perfect tool for that.  

When I am slicing fruit I use a lemon water mixture to pretreat the fruit.  Measure out 6 cups of water using the measuring lines right in the pot.  Then add 1.5 cups lemon juice.  

I like to use my vintage tomato slicer to slice evenly.  I simply lay the slicer across the top of the 4th burner pot and the fruit drops right into the pretreatment solution below. I then can use the included basket to drain the fruit before I place them on the trays.  It works really slick.  

Measure out water and lemon juice to pretreat your fruit.
Slice fruit right into the pot.
Drain and lay out on trays.

Small Batches

The pot is great for small batches of food.  Blanch veggies for dinner or small batch canning.  Steam veggies or use this for steamed eggs.  Steaming eggs is the best way to get hard cooked eggs when you have fresh from the hen house eggs.

Or just use this to measure out a specific amount of water to boil for your recipes.  

Fillmore Container sent this to me to review.  I'm sure they were hoping I'd like it.   Thanks Fillmore!  You were right, I do like it. I recommend this as a handy tool for any home canner.
