Here are a few tips for caring for your tinware.
First and foremost cook over low coals only.
Second, do not let a tin vessel boil dry! The liquid
helps to dispel and disburse the heat. When the liquid
is boiled out the heat goes to the next weakest part
of your cooker which is the solder. Then you have
pieces and parts all in your firepit!
Stir your food with a horn or wooden spoon. Helps to
prevent scratching.
Do not attemp to store leftovers in tin. Causes a
nasty mess.
Cleaning up is easy. Use a mild soap and soft cloth.
Dry thoroughly. Can be placed near the fire to insure
that all moisture is out.
And last, if you are going to store your article for
any length of time, just make sure it is clean and
dry and apply a light coat of mineral oil. This oil
dosen't get old and rancid or "tacky" as vegetable oil
has a tendency to do.
By following these simple rules your tinware should
last for a long time.
