Outdoor mega pan
Original part: winepressThe base is the carriage of an old winepress. It was used to transport the wine bucket and place it under the press. To make it look nice again I had it sandblasted and painted. It is made of 10 mm thick steel plate, has a diameter of 10 mm and weighs 204 kg. From now on, it shall no longer be used for transportation but as a pan.
Conversion into a panIn order to get to the right height, I stacked some wood under the "pan." I built a pedestal under the pan, so I could install a gas burner with 20 kW. Since a good portion of the heat will get lost due to wind, I had the idea of attaching a 0,3 mm thick aluminium plate around the pan. I attached it with 8 large ferrite disc magnets.
Use of magnetsI chose ferrite magnets because they can better withstand high temperatures than neodymium magnets. At not so hot spots I could attach neodymium pot magnets with hook. They hold spatulas, brushes and flash light.
Neodymium magnets are only suitable for dry indoor use. When used outdoors they should be insulated and kept dry.
