Aluminum mess kit for open fire use.
Savotta Kenttäpakki - Aluminum mess kit for open fire use. The Kenttäpakki or Pakki is well known for all Nordic scouts and soldiers, as it has served in outdoor cooking for decades. Made of aluminum and equipped with a steel wire handle, it is used on a camp fire for thawing snow and boiling water.
Make sure you never put the Pakki entirely inside the flames. Plain aluminum in a fire can reach its melting point, so make sure the Pakki is pretty much filled with water whenever putting it over the flames.
