Use your multi-purpose UltraPress® Outer Ti Cup to heat water and cook food alongside hot coals or near a direct flame. Always utilize the butterfly handles around heat and adequately protect your hands with leather or heat-safe gloves or tools.
WARNING: Titanium will burn your hands when hot! Handle with extreme caution and always use a set of tongs, improvised tool (aka stick), and/or leather gloves when handling hot metal.
ON CAMP STOVE
Use with a backpacking stove to boil water for meals or hot beverages. The Outer Ti Cup can be heated to very hot temperatures. Use handles when placing or removing from camp stove.
WARNING: Titanium (including the handles) will burn your hands when hot! Remove from camp stove with caution and use leather heat-safe gloves or other suitable protection. Never directly touch a hot Outer Ti Cup and only use with stoves that have a small platform and level supported base.

Sometimes getting to the river's edge is not an option. You may be stuck needing water from above, or fishing for a scoop. Tie paracord to the D-Ring on the Outer Ti Cup and drop to fill.
CLEANING AND STORING
CLEANING: All components should be washed regularly. Do not put any components into a dishwasher. Do not wash Cartridge with soap or any cleaning agents.
STORING: Perform a "dry press" with your Grayl by pressing without water in the bottle. Pour out excess water and remove cartridge. Remove One-Way Silicone Valve and allow Cartridge to air-dry thoroughly (depending on humidity it will take 2-4 days to completely dry). Hand wash all other parts including One-Way Silicone Valve with warm, soapy water. Reassemble unit to create air tight seal for storage. Cartridges can last up to three years after opening if cared for properly between uses.
Locate the Cartridge “lock tab” at bottom of Inner Press. Then pull out the “lock tab”and unscrew the Cartridge counter-clockwise (lefty loosey) until it separates from the Inner Press.
You may need to remove your valve to clean and dry it. Firmly pull the valve from it's seated position in the cartridge untill it is free.
Firmly grasp Inner Press, then insert Cartridge into bottom of Inner Press. Rotate and until cartridge tab locks into place.
Press the One-Way Drink Mix Valve until it is firmly seated in the cartridge.
