    Making bowl heaters is fun, but getting small heat resistant domes that are shaped like a parabola are difficult. Most small dishes and bowls are flat bottomed, and small round-bottomed woks are too heavy. However, by chance I stumbled on a good source - old stainless pan lids.

    Usually the lid handle screws off leaving a welded stud, which can be used to secure the dome to a spare home-made 'leg'.

    Normal brazed guard, and dredger lid (@BigScott ) fitted into the top of the dome.

    @Twoberth Inspired, Duncan. I think we’ll need it (and a couple of my Bialaddin bowl fires) up in Yorkshire @Ian ’s meet next month!
