If you love to cook rather than eat freeze dried meal then this lightweight pan is a great option. With a folding handle, good depth and durable design it will certainly get plenty of use. Perfect for a basecamp and car camping too.
Sea to Summit says:
Never let the idea of a pancake and bacon breakfast in the backcountry scare you again when you've got the Alpha camp frying pan. Arguably one of the most versatile cooking implements we've ever made, these are made from a hard anodized aluminum and feature a PFOA free non-stick coating to esnure everything stays slippery while cooking. With our revolutionary (harhar) handle design, you never have to worry about stability again, these are almost as solid to hold as your favorite pans at home. Never let sticky ingredients get in the way of backcountry gourmet again.
Sea to Summit's Non-Stick Alpha Pan 8" is a great piece of kit for any camp kitchen. The strong, folding handle locks into place to give you a solid pan for cooking. I found it a bit difficult getting it unlocked on the first few uses but I'd prefer that for giving a secure feeling when full. The size of the pan is decent but the depth is impressive and comes in useful when cooking multiple items.
It's light enough and packs small enough to carry this on backpacking trips if you want to be able to cook regularly or you can't do without a fry up on a morning! It works perfectly for short overnight trips, for a basecamp and for car camping.
