Have heard (not seen) of cast aluminium camp ovens. Have the traditional cast iron and luv it. Interested in the alloy ovens purely because of the weight factor. Can anyone help with suppliers of these units?

Possibly - however Lance Cairns was just to good with it, gave us Ozies a touch up on more than one occasion - could be why they (alloy bats) aren't around anymore.

Dont recall LC using one just a shoulderless GM bat giving the Ausies stick in a one day final in 83
AFAIK the Aluminimum bat didnt lkast long as Lillee faced a few balls and after complaints the umpire made him change it

My failing memory tends to agree with Davoe. As far as I can recall that was the only appearance of an aluminium bat in an international one dayer (against the Poms, I think???)

Could be totally wrong though :))))

Traka,
I have had my aluminium c/oven since about mid 70`s . have 4 other cast iron of various sizes but the 12" aluminium is my favorite when only cooking for 1-4 people. Nice and light for the c/van and just about unbreakable.
There is a chap in Bendigo Victoria who was selling them at the sunday market a while back (2-3 months ago) I will see if I can track him down if you wish.
Cast into the lid of mine is " 12" alumask camp oven & universal cooker "

cheers
I don`t know where i`m going but i`m enjoying the journey.

stuffed if I'd cook in aluminium, that'll frazzle your brain, use steel, stainless or cast.

Agree with Mad Dog - I am sure research indicates that Altzheimers may be linked to Aluminium cook pots - now what was I just doing ?

Link between Aluminimum and Altzimers was never proven - But stuff like that doesnt make news

If you're worried about weight, can always get a Bedourie.
