OK so here is the specification of my new light weight steel camping plate/bowl.

Outer diameter 155mm inner diameter 130mm  depth 36mm weight 60grm.

Supply details,  The plate comes filled with a check material and a top cover to prevent damage in transit.   Prior to use it needs the top cover removing, a can opener will perform this operation satisfactorly.  The plate then needs "proving" at 230 deg C in the oven.   Following the heating the plate should be checked to ensure that it has remained leakproof over the entire surface of the plate.  If a leak is found the manufacturer will replace the plate free of charge.  The contents should then be consumed and checked for taste.  Provided this is edible and no taint is present,  the plate can be washed and enter service.  Regratably the manufactures guarantee does not extend beyond the "proving" and  checking of the plate initial packing contents.  However at the low cost (approximately £1,00)  to expect an extended
Sort of.  I was reviewing my needs since replacing the frying pan with a small none stick version.   This left me with a quanddry, why have a huge Stainless plate weiging 200 grm when its not needed to cover a big fry pan.  So after the usual serach for a lightweight steel or taitanium plate the thought hit me.  Why not use a pie tin.

Light weight, good for 230 deg C and only £1.00 but you need to dispose of the contents valued at £1.00.   I am not normally big into re-cycling but somtimes its just sensible.   working on the disposal of the contents and a check the tine is good for 230 deg C at least for 25 min. https://yacf.co.uk/forum/Smileys/classic/grin.gif
guarantee is unreasonable.  ;-).

Just taken delivery of a #2 trowel for hiding the "outputs" during backpacking adventures.

My kitchen scales reckon it's 16g, which is super light.  Yet to test it out in the wild but looks promising.  Could also double as an emergency tent peg in soft ground I imagine.
Bought it online from  here https://www.ultralightoutdoorgear.co.uk/  Efficient ordering/delivery.

Alpkit Viper head lamp as my Gamma is playing up. Gamma is now £22 rp. I think I paid £12.50 for mine.

A Snow Peak Titanium pot, around 700ml size, with a lid, a mesh bag and a Ti Spork inside it.
Charity shop find of the year, I think!
I gave them a £2.00 coin and said to put the 50p change into the collection pot.

Fold-a-cup (large)
like this https://www.gooutdoors.co.uk/wildo-fold-a-cup-big-p444100?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIwP2NiJjo4AIVS7XtCh2pVwuhEAQYASABEgKJhPD_BwE&gclsrc=aw.ds

I wanted a mug big enough to use as a food bowl but which doesn't take up a large area of my rucksack by being rigid.  This is a cheap and fairly sturdy bit of kit.  A quick test with a cup of tea and it handles fine and packs small enough.

I use Orikaso, both mug and bowl, which unfolds to properly flat (about .6 mm thick?), and effectively takes up no space.
You get a free chopping mat for the cooking phase too.

There's also Fozzils, which are similar, but use poppers rather than fold-in flaps, and are more expensive.
