- Billy Can
The traditional Australian backcountry cooking pot, often used for making tea.
It is about twice as high as wide (similar in proportions to some large food cans), and usually has both a wire bail handle and a tight-fitting lid.
Capacities range from 16 to 64 ounces (475 to 1900 ml).
Makes a handy container for storing and carrying a small stove.
Also known as a "Billy Pot".
