I've made a few changes to make the cooker easier to use. I've updated the handle and made the bottom flat so anyone could eat from it. I've added an extrusion near on the handle to stabilize the cooker in the base. Version 1 was very nice looking, and version 2 will keep most of the original design while adding stability.

It will be fun to collect every color of ceramic shapeways makes. So far I have white ceramic, avocado green, and glossy black with the other colors on their way. If you are looking to get just the cooker, here's the link.

If you want to customize this in any way please email me on shapeways or contact me via my facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/ZeroDistanceDesigns

This little cooker is designed around the lowly tealight. First meals have been with a standard tealight (38mm x 38mm x 16mm) as the heat source and safflower oil inside the cooking vessel with minced green tomatoes, Portuguese sausage, and sliced garlic. After those tasty results, I progressed to make a variety of dishes.

Tiny Dishes + other savory treats:
- roasted garlic
- cheese frying: ale cheddar, mozzerella
- melted milk chocolate
- fried bread dough
- baked a small spice cake ball
- melted marshmellow + milk chocolate for different smores variations.

other neat applications:
- Heats soy wax to 200 (need to blow out the candle at 185F) and made soy candles.

temperatures:
- heats water: 200F
- heats safflower oil: 300F

limitations:
- uneven heating causes glaze cracks. The latest design with a flattened bottom seems to prevent cracks, but the base can still get glaze cracks.

other oil tests:
- coconut oil, grapeseed oil, butter were all tested and work well.
- walnut oil was tested and I don't recommend it as the oil spattered a few feet in the air as it heated up.
