About

What is Hexa Pot™?

Hexa Pot™ is an eco-conscious disposable paper cooking pot for indoor/outdoor use.  It is designed to be convenient, light-weight, easy to dispose of when you're on picnics, camping, backpacking, on the go, or traveling.  One of many reasons for using a Hexa Pot™ instead of using traditional pots is to save time. Instead of having to wash the pots, you can toss them in the recycle bin trash. Time you would spend scraping, rinsing, washing and putting them away can be used for other things instead.  The Hexa Pot™ is formed in a hexagon shaped design for a stabilized base and is made from a special non-toxic waterproofing multi-ply paper material to prevent liquid from leaking out or soaking through the paper. The Hexa Pot™ can be easily stowed away into a backpack as a result of its resourceful space-saving collapsible design.  When ready to use, just easily unfold and expand to make the hexagon formed shape.

Intended Use of Hexa Pot™

The main intended use is for cooking liquid food such as water, coffee, milk, hot chocolate, green tea, etc.  It has been tested to also be used for cooking pasta, soup, chili, shabu shabu, ramen noodles, or udon, etc., as long as it contains liquid.  Another intended use is when preparing for a possible emergency situation.  Hexa Pot™ can be used for sterilizing and disinfecting contaminated water in an aftermath disaster situation where there is no access to drinkable water. Boiling water can be used as a method of disinfection. It can also be used as a method of portable water purification in rural or wilderness settings without access to a potable water infrastructure. Bringing water to the boil is effective in killing or inactivating most bacteria, viruses and pathogens. Boiling is the most certain way of killing all microorganisms. Sterilizing water in a Hexa Pot™ can be maintained by heating it to the boiling point of (212°F or 100°C) and holding at a rolling boil for at least 10 minutes. Due to its resourceful design, it can be conveniently stowed away together with the emergency survival kit in which will offer many strategic survival advantages.

The hexagon design shape helps naturally form an easy pouring "lip-pour spout" from the center vertex (where 2 sides of the hexagon meet, thus creating an interior angle spout). To carry the Hexa Pot™ over to a table or to pour the liquid into a cup/bowl after cooking is completed; you would grab the flaps on each side of the Hexa Pot™. The flaps on each end have a dual purpose use. One is to keep the lid in place during cooking so that the heat will not escape. The other purpose is to help the user easily pick up the Hexa Pot™ for easy pouring and carrying because the flaps do not retain heat.  For your safety, we recommend our users to wait until the hot steam evaporates after cooking is finished before picking up the Hexa Pot™ by the flaps because the hot steam can escape from the sides of the lid.
