Cougar Cheese Empty Can Ideas

Cougar Tin Toaster

My husband (1965 Alumnus) and his family have been using your empty cheese cans as toasters for camping for over thirty years.

Small holes are drilled all over the bottom of the can. A wire is stretched across the top along with the handle. These support the bread during toasting. The "toaster" is set on a gas burner with the bread on top. The holes spread the heat under the bread, toasting it one side at a time. These "toasters" work better than anything else we have found.

We would be interested in other ideas submitted as we have many more cans than we need toasters.
