Where can I find a cylindrical stainless steel container that is about 4" wide by 5 1/2" deep?
I don’t care what it’s meant to be used for. I just care that it’s solid and well made and water-tight.
It doesn’t even require a lid. I just want the pot or can.
It’s for making steamed brown bread. The old container was a one-pound coffee can from the days of fitted metal lids that opened with a key. I used my mother’s old Maxwell House can for more than 30 years, until it sprang a leak.
The newer coffee can I’m using now is discoloring so much after several years that I’m worried about components leaching into the brown bread.
It’s 4 inches in diameter by 5¼” deep. I could use a can a little taller, but not wider, or the proportions won’t be right. An asparagus steamer is a little too big.
Does any category of activity—whether culinary or not—call for a well-made stainless steel vessel that I could press into service for this traditional purpose? I don’t even care if it comes full of something that I have to use up or throw away; I just want the can.
