I see, someone cut and moved it all.
Why didn't I think about this :(

I split the topic and moved the new thread to "Cooking Q&A".

Is this a question about outdoor cooking equipment, like a "mess kit?"

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mess_kit

The reason I ask, is because I was confused by the nation-related modifiers, "Swedish cook pot", "steel German kit." I tried feeding both these phrases to an image search, and one of the results that came up was a forum discussion about "Swedish" versus "German" mess kits, here:

https://bushcraftusa.com/forum/threads/ ... vy.101196/

By the way, the present community on this forum is so small, and its members live so far apart geographically, that it is unlikely someone here, on this forum, will have the artifact you want, and be willing to trade, and live nearby, or even in the same country.

I suggest looking on eBay. Uh... that is provided you can discover the particular words the eBay sellers are using to describe the artifact you seek.

Final note, in the event you actually get your hands on some metal artifact, and you are still wondering what kind of metal it is... there are some quick and easy tests for that,

My favorite is the magnet test, and I actually carry a small magnet with me, for the purpose of examining metal junk I find in dumpsters, thrift stores, and other places.

The only thing I can think of is that our user is in an area with very limited access and online shopping options.
Maybe I can at least clear the pot problem up a bit:
I think the user is after a heavy and good sized pot.
Swedish pot is just a name for the overall style and fact that they are cast iron with some enamel or sometimes non stick coating.
The German variation is quite similar but more oval in form, not really much in use today anyway.

Why would you want them?
Appearently they are perfect for certain dishes and cooking methods as they hold the heat for a long time and distribute it very evenly throughout the entire pot and not just the bottom part.
These cast iron pots for camping are literally the same, just with no coating and being just bare metal you need to season.

Then WHERE are located? Roughly...
Ordering these heavy things only from within your country is certainly possible.
Coming from the outside usually means you pay about as much postage as the pot is worth.
Then there is the problem of consumables....
Those seals won't last forever and usually "universal" ones you find online ONLY WORK IF your original seal is of the same diameter AND shape.
Depending on the useage times and how well you clean and store it all these big sels last for about 3 years before they go rather hard and start leaking.
The over pressure safety stuff also needs some spares every now and then to operate properly and within specs.

If you don't have any suppliers with shops in your country check what is available online.
There are some old and well trusted brands out there - opt for them instead of cheap knock offs.
I have a pressure cooker my grnadmother already used and except for those consumables it is still going strong....
