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.
