The Trench Grill

I saw a post on FB the other day singing the praises of a Purcell Trench Grill.

A great product I thought, but rather pricey, especially when customs and admin charges are added for importing it over here.

I liked the idea when I first saw them many moons ago but decided there must be a cheaper option.

Wandering around IKEA one day, as I often do because I use some of  their products in my work, I spotted the LÄMPLIG Stainless steel trivet.

I had looked at them before but they used to be solid and very heavy.

What I noticed was that the price had dropped and when I picked one up I realised it was because they were now hollow and much lighter.

That put them right in the running.

I bought three and used one just as it was for static camps, it was a bit large for back packing. ( 430g )

The other two I cut through the cross bars.

One into two equal grills, 4 bars each. ( 214g )

The other one into a light 3 bar grill ( 160g ) and a wider 5 bar grill ( 267g )

This gives me a selection of 5 grills I can now choose which to use, costing me the princely sum of £11.25 and a few minutes with a hacksaw  and a file to smooth any rough edges.

The reason the four bar one is so shiny is that I keep making new ones as I tend to give these out  to friends when they see how useful they are.
