alex, I've got a primuscoi one, have seen them in disposals stores, it's flat and the legs fold underneath, we used it last weekend overthe fire, and it worked great, it comes in 3 sizes, I've got the largest. You can check out their stuff on www.primuscoi.com.au

I have one that looks the same as those but got it at Cheap as Chips or Cunninghams or the like (can't remember exactly which one it was but you know the type) for about $8. It is cast iron and has fold up legs etc for over the coals but you can remove them and then it fits perfectly over my 2 burner stove.

Yep - we've got the mid size COI - had the same problem, couldn't find a quality one in a design and size we liked - the COI is great and comes in a sturdy canvas bag.

I just use the lid of my Bedourie camp oven. Works a treat.

Bought a hotplate from Go Low or Clints crazy bargains for 10 bucks.
Do yourself a favour don't buy too big. I bought one with folding legs large and have never used it.

Hi Alex,

We were given one with folding legs, and its great. It is just the sort that you buy at somewhere like Snowys or Rays Outdoors. They aren't as thick as you would expect, but they work a treat. If you want something really thick (and heavy!) then there are plates that you can buy to put over your 2 burner gas stove. If you want to be really extravagant then Le Creuset make one for cooking steaks etc. I admit to owning one of each of these, and the one on legs from Snowys is as good as any and much cheaper.
Hope this helps
Anni

I don't think the thickness of the plate matters much on a campfire.

I tend to put steak over the grille side, and other stuff on the plate. If you've got nice bed of coals underneath it cooks fine.

In Adelaide you'll get good ones anywhere.

Cheers
Phil
