Has anyone seen or know of a set of pots that are square so as to fit into each other for camping?. I remember a set my parents had that had 3 triangular sections that fitted into 1 large round saucepan so that 3 seperate things could be cooked at once. Thanks for any replies.

Terry,

I think that those triangular ones came as accessories in the old pressure cookers. Try you local weekend markets or garage sales and you should be able to pick up a few.

They were availble separately in sets of three. We had a set bought from Myers. They are only good for feeding two people. We now use a pressure cooker for camping and find it great. Using a pressure cooker cuts down your cooking time in most cases by 2/3. We now take a pressure cooker, wok and one medium sized saucepan for doing all our cooking. Between the pressure cooker and wok you can cook or bake anything.

Terry, I remember those triangular pots. My folks had a set too.

Why do you want a square pot? Looking to cook a "square meal"?

Sorry.Be good, or be quick.

Good question, Terry

If they were available in Stainless Steel, I would buy a set asap

Rectangular pots would do also.....better than the bulky billies etc I now have in my cargo drawers

C'mon, you manufacturing entrepenuers, the opportunity exists.Rick (S.A.) - ' It is better to travel hopefully than arrive'

I would use square cake tins, you can fit 4 (or more) inside each other and they pack away neatly. That'd be for 4 square meals Rohan!________________________________>

Hi,
I remember rectangular pots when doing my nashoes. They were made of aluminium and had a folding handle. They came in sets of two. One slightly larger than the other so that they folded into one another.
You could, if this is what you want possible fin them in government surplus shops

"And dont forget the cup that fitted onto the bottom of a water bottle" known as "Cup's Canteen"or "Kidney cup"
"knife/fork/spoon" = "KFS"
"the can opener with spoon combined" We called this a "Church Key"

Oh those were the days!!!
