Another Teutonic no-frills aluminium mess kit, this time from Romania. The model is fairly close to the German WWII model, although not exactly the same. Used army surplus.

General info

The German pattern of making a mess tin is very smart. First of all, it's a good bowl for eating whatever grub the "chef" of your garrison has come up with. Once the soup is in the bowl, you can sprint towards shelter without spilling anything.

It also can be used as a camping kettle when cooking, and the carrying handle allows you to hang it over open fire. The lid has a handle for use as a frying pan - though you may want to insulate it with something first, or secure an ad-hoc wooden handle to it.

The material is aluminium, so it doesn't weigh much and rust won't be an issue. The carrying handle and lid handle are usually steel and might show some rust, but these aren't parts that touch your food.

When carried, the lid handle closes the package together. The inside has enough space to pack something else you might need when eating, but be sure to pack it so it doesn't rattle!

Romanian military surplus

These have been used but the inside surfaces and general shape are surprisingly good! Very often old mess kits are scratched on the inside and deformed so that the lid and base are difficult to separate. Not these! We didn't spot any manufacturing stamps so dating these is quesswork, but the very end of the '80s or thereafter should be close, because surviving communism would have left worse marks.

It's nearly identical to the Hungarian version, except the paint is cheaper. It is chipping off in places and there is permanent overspray on the inside. The lid is a bit smaller than the Hungarian version.
While attached to my bag, it would sometimes turn upside down or side and the lid would fall right off. To solve this issue I had to use a hammer and smash down the handle until it made solid contact.
Overall, a decent mess tin.

The closest clone to a German M31 mess kit.Especially the one with the classic m31 hande holder which i got (beforelast foto,the ones at each side)..Near mint condition, I paired it with a trangia military burner and wind sheild.It fits like a charm.
I cut with a dremel an orizontal notch 2.5cm at 2.5cm above the base of the windsheid and it locks with the wind sheild like it was fit for it

The one I got had a spot of rust here and there, and a little bit of dirt on the inside of the kit, but even inside an attic it'd still catch some dirt.
Perfectly green and not bent like it fell off the truck multiple times. Sturdy, but the handle makes me wonder how much it can hold. Two piece kit is perfectly enough. The kit is on the larger side, too, so dont expect this to go into a canteen pouch.

If yours doesnt perfectly seal, you might have to bash the locking arm to get it perfect.

Very decent for the price if youre looking for this style of mess kit for a more thrifty budget.

Löytyy varastosta toinen tuo villisti wehrmactia mallintava ja toinen puolbunderwehriläiskahvakiinnikkeellä,En tiedä onko sana yhteen tahi erikseen mutta siitä voi pohtia mallin. Ihan siistejä kevyitä pakkeja joita kannattaa näin sähkökaton/-katkojen ollessa lähellä varastoida nurkkiin esim. sytytyspalojen kera,ei mene ruokaillessa ajatukset sähkön myyntiin ja bisnesvoittojen saajiin. Ihan on hyvä pakki ja sotaahan sen pitäisi kestää noin romanialaisittain jossa itäblokin aikana ei se elinikäkään ollut rauhanaikanakaan mikään turhan pitkä .
