Description

Berliners TurnSteel Helmets Into Saucepans. 10,000 saucepans a month are being manufactured in Berlin from the thousands of old German steel helmets which still litter the city's styreets. The neckband and leather padding are cut away from each helmet, which is then put into a hand-operated press, where the top is flattened to form the base of the saucepan. Two small handles are fitted covering the sweat holes in the helmet's side, and the whole is then enameled. The result is a good "austerity" cooling pot, and an example of the way in which Germans are being encouraged to solve their own scarcity problems.
