The potjie percolator

This is a potjie percolator. No, it's not for brewing coffee in a potjie.

It's meant for percolating the liquid in your potjie, which is a South African camp oven.

By rotating the liquid from bottom to top, it can prevent your food from burning.

You can order one here, and there's a good illustration of how it works here.

Since a potjie has a rounded bottom, I'm not sure how well this would work in an American camp oven, which has a flat bottom.

You can buy one for a size 2, 3, or 4 potjie.
