I love cast iron and own a set of skillets and a huge dutch oven. I cook with them at home literally every day. Have taken them on a few camping trips, but 99% of the time I leave them at home. WAY too heavy. Especially for "backpacking." Anyone who thinks they are somehow a backpacking essential is a moron.

a bread loaf pan works
I would even prefer the loaf pan over a cast iron skillet
it has a square flat bottom that can cook pancakes or sausages or other things but it also has high sides for soup or boiling water
they are lightweight take a lot less space and cost very little
don't really care what happens to it because you can go get one at the dollar store

cast iron skillet is normally bigger but if you need to take 2 loaf pans. they stack inside eachother

Uh i have a stainless steal bottle, cup, and a small grill, that's all ive ever needed. Also flat rocks exist.

Welcome to 4chan. I take it you don't know how posting works. When you make a new thread, on a subject with which you want to discuss, you need to be an abrasive shitty elitist cunt in order to get n00bs to bump your thread. When you hide the retarded posts, you end up getting to see the actual conversation. Here's another tip, newfriend, so you can post without image captchas (see the screenshot I have attached for you, just click on its thumbnail and the full image will load).

A small steel Wok with a lid and a folding handle would be more versatile. Round with a flat bottom; works as a shallow pot or a skillet. Not that many people really have a use for a skillet while /out/.

Expensive? No.

If you’ve got transportation in and out (sled, dogsled, pack mule, atv, car, truck, or whatever), it’s worth taking along. If you’re hoofing it to and from, there’s no way. Get a light pot or pan that can multitask.

>>1153078
Yes, eventually. Just as we all will.
If you use aluminum stuff for every meal, it might kill you in 350 years. Since the human lifespan is only about 75 years, I’d say you're safe.

Nuh. First of all he's got 0 patterns/decorations. These dudes were religious and superstitious and had a serious division of labour so all that shit would have some decoration or no one would buy it. My bet is he skipped it because it takes way too long to stamp a snake on your bag if you haven't been practising for 20 years.

Secondly, what all of these people do wrong is there's no form fitting. Which again is because form fitting today is expensive and difficult, but back then there was some old woman whose entire life revolved around that. Without form fitting, you can not wear clothes like that for real tasks and you'll look like you're a bedsheet ghost (like this guy). Even Hollywood movies do this way better.

Third there's no filth and wear or tear.

Forth all the colours are too bright and the pattern too fine, indicating modern processing of the raw material. First of all, bright colours were upper class only as the stains from being a peasant would make you look like shit in hours. Secondly sheeps wool was not white at this time, and it was rarely bleached before dying either.

Fifth purple was EXTREMELY expensive back then. You'd maybe see one or two rich varangian guard veterans wearing that, in your lifetime. Blue with red patterns was very common.

Sixth they generally waxed their shit. A bit of rain on that guy and he'd be double his weight from water retention.

Tbh this completely fictional hollywood character is probably more accurate due to form fitting and filth level.

>>1155144
I have the basically a 27-2 hard-anodized set (2 1L pots, 18cm fry pan and the 0.6L kettle). I really like it, but it isn't really very big at all, if you are gonna do a lot of cooking or cooking something complex.

The two nesting pots on the smaller, 27 series are 1L each with a 18cm/7" fry pan, while the pots on the larger 25 series sets are 1.75L and 1.5L with a 22cm/8.5" fry pan.

The simmer ring is really the best part of the whole system, and actually lets you cook very well, once you get used to adjusting it. If you've ever cooked over a gas stove, the idea is basically the same.

I think my entire set, with all the pots, pan, kettle, the "multi-disc", pot holder, burner and all, in the orange bag weighs right at 2.1lbs/0.95kg. So it is a little hefty. But, it will probably outlive you.
>>
>>1155126
But, I do anon...
>>
>>1155167
I'm usually just cooking one pan disasters for myself or a friend, so that sounds great anon.
Any sets you'd recommend?
>>
>>1155178
Well, if you already have a heatshield & stuff from your esbit stove, I would probably just get the Trangia 28-t, which comes with the burner & simmer ring, a 0.8L aluminum pot, a 15cm non-stick frypan, a (tiny) windscreen, and the pot holder. Those are only like $30, so not too terribly bad and a good option if you already have your own pots and stuff.

The UL models pretty much all have plain aluminum pots, and non-stick fry pans, but come with the very efficient base & heat shield, which really ups the efficiency of the burner. Because of how the heat shield traps the hot air, it cooks rather faster. My only complaint with the UL models are the pots being plain aluminum. Most of the UL models will run you about $55-75 or so.

Then you have the hard-anodized version. This is basically the premium model, and has either all anodized pans or a combination of anodized & nonstick pans. This is the version I have, because the anodizing acts kinda like a non-stick finish, except you never have to worry about it wearing off. They're also not really that much more expensive than the UL version; the 27-1HA that I started with (before I added the kettle and stuff) only cost me $90 from Varusteleka, which even with their 9.99 shipping was cheaper than ordering it off Amazon.

Which seems like a lot, I admit, but on the other hand you're getting the bomb-proof burner, coupled with a complete cookware set, so all you need to add are utensils, basically.

But yeah, if you already have your own cookwear & windscreen, you could definitely get along with a Mini-Trangia (28-t).

The process of seasoning a pan isn’t cooking. It’s more akin to painting your protective coating onto it and letting the finish cure in the hot oven.
You want a coating that will cure completely and give a hard, smooth nonstick finisb to the pan.
That’s why linseed oil works so well.

>>1155259
He does. It’s called excellent bait.

>>1155293
You can still scrub out your pan with scouring pads to get the chunks off, just don’t use soap.
>>
>>1155309
>>1155327
New skillets often times have a rough surface on the inside. Those bumps and divots make for crappy cooking surfaces. Antique skillets were machined smooth when created. Lots of people grind the new skillets smooth then season them. There's nothing wrong with that. It makes the skillet a lot better.
>>
>>1155293
If it is seasoned correct, there's no need to do that. However, you can use plastic net garlic bag, plastic or stainless steel pot scrubber, or special made stainless steel chain mail scrubber that you can buy online now. Don't use plain steel or copper scouring pads. They both get rusty and disintegrate quickly; even the pure copper ones.

Linseed oil isn't poisonous and is a food additive. It isn't recommended for cooking simply because it sucks a lot. For the purpose of seasoning it doesn't matter since it gets reduced to nothing but a chemical reaction. Lots of people use it, but it is still a bit uncommon.
>>
>>1155418
BLO is not just "linseed oil." It has poisonous metal dust/drying agents mixed in. It's safe to use in normal woodworking because these are suspended in the cured oil, but in a fucking cooking pan? Yeah sorry man, you have three different types of ass cancer and they're playing rock paper scissors to decide who gets to metastasize to your liver.
>>
>>1155424
I didn't even see he was using "boiled". Good catch. Yeah, BLO is a no-go for seasoning. Here's the MSDS for that specific product,

http://www.jasco-help.com/uploads/documents/GJBLO110_SDS-1660CD.pdf

>>1155209
Now that I realize you are using "boiled" linseed oil, you'll need to scrub the shit out of the pan and reseason it with something else. Like lard or food-use vegetable oil. you can use RAW linseed oil, but no boiled. Raw lineseed oil is called, "flaxseed oil."

Meanwhile, a name brand 8” aluminum skillet weighs just under 9 ounces, or less than one-third of the weight you carry to bring your 6.5”.
Plus it’s bigger, AND costs under $10 brand new.

I use a 10" lodge and a 14cm zebra pot for /out/ing, myself. The zebra is to handle shit detrimental to the skillet, or making stew/dumplins n shit. I wanna pick up a depressed lid campstyle dutch oven next for lazier maximum comfy cooking on shit like tater soup.

Why exactly do I need a cast iron pan for hiking. I cook using my lightweight stove and pots and I don't exactly feel like carrying an extra 5 pounds of heavy iron around if I don't have to.

Genuine question

>>1159315
>>1156513 here. It’s not that much. I could probably get a bigger one but I was cheap and got the smallest. I like frying eggs or cooking sausage and cornbread on it. I’m not a diehard like most of the guys here but as I said in >>1158360 I carry a pretty light base weight so I can have room for more frivolous stuff like fishing supplies and stuff. It’s not as bad weight wise as you’d think and it adds to the comfy factor. The handle may be a pain because I definitely prefer my boiling pot collapsing handle

I use cast iron at work for specific tasks... Black steel, like he said, is the best alternative due to the weight. Teflon is techwear idk why ppl think it's shit-tier it really isn't

Cast iron is decent for /out/ stuff but only if weight isn’t really a concern. Those things are god-tier /ck/ tools though.

>using stainless steel cookware
Hope you enjoy chromium, nickel, and other toxic metals leaching into your food every time that thing gets scratched.

Anionized aluminum is okay if you're really desperate, but obviously normal aluminum is insanely toxic and creates aluminum salts in your food that cause brain damage. Using fluoride water also increases the toxicity 1000x. I wouldn't use copper either because of the whole dementia link, either...

high-tech ceramic, titanium, terracotta clay, and of course cast iron are the best cookware. I love iron just because I feel like my blood is thanking me everytime I use it. Can't bring it /out/ though, unless I'm car camping. Too heavy. The cute little ones are nice, though.

If I'm /out/ I just eat raw and don't have a problem. I don't fish, trap, or hunt, though.

my ex-wife had a set of family heirloom, nicely seasoned cast iron pots and pans. she used to cook in them all the time.
once i tried to help clean up after a meal and she literally went fucking ballistic because of the way i was washing her cast iron pan.
i cant even remember now how i was doing it but whatever i did, apearantly it was very wrong,
suddenly out of nowhere it was like WW3 started right there in our kitchen

Our stainless isn't seasoned. Sticking can be minimized by using cooking oils or fats. Also placing your ingredients into a cold pan helps too. I almost never use the stainless fwiw.

it will blast right through it. I shot my wrecked cast iron with 7.62x39 at like 150 yards and it went straight through taking out larger chunks than the bullet.
Cast iron is remarkably brittle, sometimes it almost reminds me of like "shattering" rather than breaking if that makes any sense

You know the whole BPA thing? Yeah, it's because most tin cans were lined with it. A lot of companies have stopped using BPA, but still coat their cans, and their cans aren't really made to cook in, just to store the contents. Though some heat is applied in most canning processes, it's not the same as using a can as a cooking vessel. All that being said, I still use tupperware and plastic food film, so cooking in a tin can wouldn't bother me. I just wouldn't do it a lot.

>>1173669
anything softer than the material the pan is made out of will not have any effect on it. I suggest you scrape off the loose stuff and leave it on the stove on high and a lot of it will at least be softened
liquid rust removers are some extremely strong chemicals but you can wash it off and heat it up good before you use it
I would even be ok with using fine grit sandpaper
>>
>>1173669

Maybe vinegar or even coke and soak
