Thanks to all of y'all for the help. I'm new and paranoid I broke or damaged a new tool, which definitely took some wind out of my sails. It'd make sense for them to be sturdier than being compromised after a spill. Lesson learned, though, I'll probably just boil water in the pot and then pour it into bags like I've read about.

 

I definitely need to invest in a bear bag/can. I'm not in bear country currently (central Georgia) but ain't just bears to be concerned about, I reckon. Raccoons...
