Czechoslovakian mess tin, aluminum, surplus
The Czechoslovakian mess tin is a welcome change and a viable alternative to the traditional Germanic models. It's not even half bad! Even in the East Bloc trying something new was a possibility.
This Czechoslovakian kit is a kettle-like bowl (1,5 l) with a smaller one (1 l) inside, and a frying pan that doubles as a lid. Both bowls have a folding steel wire handle. The larger one also closes the whole package, and there are strap loops on two sides to attach it to your kit or belt.
Cooking is only a matter of using either bowl on a field stove with the frying pan as a lid, or just the pan as it is. The use is as simple as the construction.
Diameter 15 cm, height 8 cm, the inner piece is 13 x 7,5 cm.
Used Czech surplus
In used, but good serviceable condition. Apparently these have been washed before throwing them into storage, so you don't have to scrape off any borsch residue. We still recommend a decent washing before use. In some cases the lid fits really tight, but this can be adjusted by bending the bowl slightly to be closer to round.

Update: it's actually surprising how much fits in here. Got fish cock, an esbit stove, tons of fuel, tea, matches, and a fire steel in this, an entire meal!

Put firestarters etc. inside and you have your own perfect kit.
Great for BoB.

The two pots are stackable, so you can stir fry stuff in the upper container while water in the bottom one boils.
Handles are made of strong wire which can be easily unplugged for cleanup or to have a lighter setup. To shave even more weight you can get rid of the smaller pot and use the bigger one only.
These pots are easily cleanable and can carry all your cooking set (mine contains oil, pepper, salt, soap, buillon, rice, pasta and a diy can stove with its alchool bottle), stashes nicely at the bottom of your backpack.
It's very study, you can kill a small mammal with it.

Niijoo, pyöreän astian hinkkaaminen puhtaaksi on helpompaa perinteiseen pakkiin verrattuna.
