- It's too heavy for what it is.
- It was a very snug fit in the cup.
Today I decided to improve it with the help of Mr. Dremel, but cutting away part of the lip that sits inside the cup.
First, here it is being held by its handle in my vise. I've already made one cut with my Dremel using a heavy duty cut-off wheel.
After making the cuts, I snapped the excess material off with pliers. Then I used a grinding stone in the Dremel to deburr where I made the cuts.
And finally, sitting on the cup. As you can see, it's the older L-handle style. IMNSHO, this is much better than butterfly handles. If you look closely you can see where I added graduation markings to the cup.
The lid is a bit lighter now but it would have been better had it been made from hard anodized aluminum, or at least a thinner gauge of stainless steel. It's noticeably easier to set on the cup or remove it to check how something is cooking.
