Have a 2 burner primus gas stove - there are cast iron 2or 3 burner plates for around $20 and also a thin aluminimum curved side plate with teflon coating for about $28 for the same.
Like the idea of the light weight of aluminium plate but being so thin might burn stuff. anybody used these ally ones or better off with heavy cast one

Buy the heavy one it retains the heat better and gives a nice flavour to the steak.

Hi. we have both: the aluminium one is cast, not pressed sheet, but it still warped, which gets in the way of cooking! So I'd go cast iron also.

Just to be different.........we have the Coleman pressed alluminium plate (not the cast version). Has worked well for us and being light can be stored with less hassle in the space available. We have a cast iron version that sits on the fish burner on the home stove and it is certainly better for steaks. The aluminium one works more like a frypan. The only thing to watch is that the Coleman has a non-stick coating that seems to be good quality but must not be scratched by using metal utensils. Usually use ours for pancakes, french toast, toasted sandwiches and bacon & eggs. Steaks go on the open fire plate.
