Perhaps. No idea.

My brother owns the coffee pot. I will have a look at it next time. Perhaps it's printed on it somewhere.

Do you currently collect exclusively stuff from North Korea? . :confused2:

Anyone these day make an enamel lined bottle? You know not just on the outside, I know many military bottle in the past we’re enamel.

A quick search from my side of The Pond produced zero result.
I did find a product, a cover for the modern water bottles, a printed sleeve to give the bottle that mottled ‘enamelware’ look.
:(

Ok, one more classic technology, environmental friendly and useful, going into the grave....

Nope.
The Sigg bottles have an internal plastic coating. The fuel bottles are uncoated inside.
My old Sigg is dented like no tomorrow but does not leak.
I am not sure if they make fuel bottles anymore, the shops I checked in Norway did not have any.

I am unsure if Aluminium can be enameled.
Gold, Silver, Iron yes. Ti with difficulty. CoCr and NiCr barely.

So, probably only the old swiss army bottle with cork closure was made by Sigg and had a enamel coating???

Unsure, unsure, unsure. I never owned one because it's so small.

You can, if you cut the ingredients small....
:)

In fact, they make one model with a wide mouth.

As I wrote, no enameled bottles are manufactured according to the Internet.

So you need to go Vintage or go Stainless.
I like my stew and a sigg bottle full is only a snack! Also porridge would be a problem and as for baking bread. ...........

Well, you might be into something there......

So you want a bottle, done in blue, speckled enamel?
Ha ha Janne of course I do! Thats why I posted a thread about a pan!
Don't worry keep on chatting about bottles if that rocks your boat when I'm talking about a billycan. :)
Anyway I've ordered one so I'll be able to answer my own question soon. I managed to find a site and got the last one.
I don't normaly order sight unseen which was why I asked a sensible question, as nobody has given me a sensible reply I'll have to do it myself.
My pal has ordered it for me. So carry on talking about bottles and perhaps you could change the title of the thread for me. :) :) :)

The coffee pot my brother owns seems to be part of the same product line like your Billy can, and it's fine!

I do not expect any surprises.
Globetrotter sells parts of that production line since probably a decade and they throw non working stuff very fast out of the offers if it isn't a product of an own brand like "Frilufts" dog walking equipment...

Did you get my PM Woody girl???
