Has anyone noticed if Wal-Mart still sells the grease pot we all love and know?
Two Walmarts near me in NE. Texas no longer have them on the shelf, instead they have a plastic box device which holds an aluminised bag to hold grease. Don't know if I want to try that over my cat stove, you know?

Try KMart. The rolled lip on their grease pot goes to the outside...some folks like that better anyway. I think they're the same size and everything.

I've noticed.

They're disappearing from Wal-Marts all over the Southeast.

Go to a hispanic market and look for the Imusa brand of cookware. They sell a greasepot that holds 3 1/2 cups for about $3. It is much smaller and lighter that either the Walmart or Kmart brands.

Imusa also has a lot of small, lightweight frying and paella pans that are ideal for backpacking.

(No...I am not selling this stuff, just passing on what I found to be good stuff for backpacking.) :biggrin:

I have never seen this infamous grease pot everyone raves about.
Could anyone post up a pic? Also could anyone offer dimensions?

We don't have them in Ontario Walmarts. I have looked many times
in 7 or 8 different locations.
