I found, in the pet section of some stores, stainless pet water bowls of various sizes that will make perfect cookwear and stoves. Just one more place for DIY gear

This is another example of "thinking outside the box." For backpacking, I usually carry a 12 oz Vienna sausage can as a pot/cup. The last time I flew somewhere to camp, I brought one light frying pan and a large but light-for-its-size stainless steel mixing/salad bowl. The bowl was perfect for heating water, cooking stir-fry and other one-pot meals, steaming muffins, etc., serving food, and a dishpan. I probably could have gotten by without the frying pan, but there was room for it and I didn't have to carry it past the picnic table.

CamperMom,

Good observations. Since the invention of tin cans, they have been used for camping. Add a wire bail and you don't need a pot lifter. People used to be conversant in the sizes, ie a no. 5, or no. 2.

Unfortunately, these days "tin" (now steel or aluminum, not tin) cans are all lined with plastic--the kind which contains PBA. I sure wouldn't want to cook in one!
