I've not found my ideal pot and pan set up yet. I have a great lifeventure stainless pan and lid, it's about a litre, which is great for my wee wood stove but it's useless for frying as everything sticks to it. It's identical to this one:

MSR steel pan

I like that it's steel, solid, it locks itself up and doesn't rattle, it comes in a bag so it doesn't clang and rub soot on everything. Plus no holes in the lid which is what I'm after.

I've seen a few pots about that have a frying pan lid. I'm really wary as they seem to be all aluminium or titanium, which tends to be a bit frail. I don't want something that's gonna fall apart after a seasons use. I really need a frying pan though, especially a good size one as I'm likely to be frying fresh fish on it.

Any recommendations? I'd even consider a nest arrangement with a couple of pans.

Thanks!

What is the diameter of the base of the pot, if you're happy with your stainless pot then I would look for a frying pan / skillet pan that nestles on the bottom of it, I like the looks of those sheets, interesting idea ?

Just posted my answer elsewhere on here to someone selling one. Use 90% of the time a metal mug either an old Dutch aluminium or the crusader mug. Occasionally us a old trangia or the pathfinder frying pan

Thinking about trying the newer shaped crusader mk2 mug. See if it better, certainly bigger which may be a good or bad thing
