    Today was the turn of an eleventy one to make coffee.
    It fired straight up as they normally do, so I decided to get the others out for a dusting.

    None are particularly noteworthy. There are five embossed tins from the1950/60s, the oldest is back left with handle at the front. Four have slotted SRVs, and two newer ones have pentagon SRVs. All have ‘cookie cutters’ except the silent burner one (front right) which has a ‘hockey puck’.

    If you are wondering about the simmer plates, Dollar Tree and other stores sell a variety of cheap BBQ trays. Look for the stainless steel ones

    They are cheap and thin, and you can cut them easily. They make great simmer plates.

    I bought one of the “Russian” grill plates from the Bay but haven’t tried it yet. It seems to fit my 99 and 111B, but not my 8R. Has to do with the spacing of the pot supports.
