Connor & Brendan's Story


First experiment burned holes in the bottom. 8 oz compostible paper cup. Smallest gas burner. Tried with mesh and without on different sized burners. Mesh seemed not to work. Maybe a solid piece of metal would be better. The cup in your photo looks like plastic. The flanges burned, then tried again with 12 oz sized cup offset on the medium burner, and after initial burning of some of the flange (if that\'s the right word), then it dripped, then stopped dripping, then the water got hotter and hotter! We love this one! The smell of burning paper, the look of the water bubbles rising. We put a thermometer in. We made tea for mom with the water boiled in paper cup.
