Early style cups
Early Style Canteen Cup Made of Stainless Steel
The earlier style canteen cups featured a fold under handle that while not as convenient to use as a cup, was actually quite useful if ever you needed to cook over a fire.
Cooking With Canteen Cups
Many experienced attendees greatly prefer the older style cups for this reason.
Be aware that the cups were manufactured out of both Stainless Steel and aluminum. The stainless cups are a great deal easier to clean and are not as hot on the lips when drinking hot fluids. Avoid the aluminum versions of the canteen cup.
