Dropped by the local branch of London Drug in Winnipeg yesterday and saw they have fully anodized frypans in stock. This is not the usual kind with an anodized outer but instead it is the same as used in the GSI dutch oven and the Frybake pans- anodized inside and out.

The 20cm pan was on sale for 17.99 and works pretty well- used it to bake a pumpkin bannock for breakfast this morning. I'll need to work on a detachable handle for tripping but I've already salvaged a nice heavy duty stainless steel lid that will let me use it as a small dutch oven.

They have some bigger ones in stock too but it was the small one that caught my eye. They are made by Starfrit and sold under the Cat Cora brand.

How about drilling out the two handle rivets and replacing them with short flat head bolts with wingnuts?

I was thinking something along those lines but would like to come up with something that fits inside the pan. The current one is not suited to just sawing the end off so maybe another trip to the thrift store is in order.

Is this the sort of pan you are referring to? http://www.londondrugs.com/Cat-Cora-For ... n-cookware

Scratch that, searching for "cat cora" on the LD website found this: http://www.londondrugs.com/Cat-Cora-Fry ... cat%20cora

Yup, that's the one. The material is much thicker than a "camping" frypan so holds the heat well. It's a shame to junk that fancy handle but when I get a chance this weekend I will drill the rivets out.

I have taken the handles off of all my camping pots Chris. I just have a couple of those squeeze type handles that resemble pliers...you can get cheap ones or better ones at MEC. I have two, just in case.

I also get a fry pan with the folding/removable handle from MEC every couple of years. Mine has been standing up pretty well so far.
