Frypan suggestions

Thu 25 Oct, 2018 5:28 pm

Thinking to mix up my food options and get into some fried goodies like pancakes, fried rice, risoni, sweet potato chips, the good old stirfry.

Wondering what is a good frypan model you've used? A little bulky but could use a mini kettle, giant stainless mug and the frypan...

Up to 20cm and a 5cm side wall perhaps :)

The lid of my Trangia kit makes an adequate frying pan. Mine is Teflon-coated as well.

A bit heavy for longer hikes.

Not that i fry very often...

Asian shop special with the heavy handle taken off...thick base.
Not too big, not too small. Cooks a brekky omelette a treat.

You could grind down the sides a bit and loose some the weight you just gained with the base...I didn't bother.
Once it's in the pack, its out of sight out of mind. :wink:

Don't hike with one myself but I remember a discussion about Frypans a while back and thought these looked good

I have a small 500 ml pot from Aldi (Adventuridge Brand) which has a partially curved base. This is pretty good for frying eggs, potato fish cakes, fritattas and pancakes, if you don't mind the weight.

Basically find a small wide pot with a curved base and you have a pot that you can fry things in.

Noticed some 1egg sized frying pans in our local supermarkets...lose the handles if your worried about weight.

I didn't get into frying on buswalks yet, other than nachos in my half size hike pot...

Car camping/living I had a nice anodised 20cm frypan from Spotlight. Left it at a mates then ended up with a 24cm replacement. A bit more funtional but have to be careful to not stir things off and over the edge.

Still looking for the elusive small titanium wok.

The most functional one I have found, the pan from my old Duossal Trangia set, works really well, available separately

I spotted a 10cm frying pan in Big W yesterday for$9.90, thin-ish alloy, non stick, the handle is probably the heaviest part. Without the handle it would be light enough but maybe too small to be practical.
