Polish M70 Aluminum Mess Kit
Polish M70 Aluminum Mess Kit

The M70 Mess Kit (or the wz. 70) was in service from 1945 to 1989, while Poland was under Soviet occupation. Our mess kits were manufactured by the now-defunct “Rybnik Bets Metal Product” factory in Silesia from the 1970s to 80s. You’ll be using them in the 21st century. Time is a fickle mistress, but a good pierogi is constant.

As a two-piece kit, the top lid detaches into a bail-handled pot, while the other half of the container serves as a bowl, ideal for an outdoors camping spree or preparing a kielbasa for your backyard tent roleplay.

Instructions

  1. Remove the lid/pot from the bottom/bowl
  2. The lid/pot will have a bail handle to hold it with
  3. The bottom/bowl will have a handle to carry it by or hang it over a fire
  4. Use the lid/pot to cook and fry meals, holding it by the bail handle as necessary
  5. Use the bottom/bowl to boil water or other liquids
  6. Both the pot and bowl are suitable to eat or drink from

Specs

  • Made of aluminum with olive drab coating
  • Bail-handled pot/lid – 6" x 3.5" x 5.5"
  • Interchangeable bowl/bottom – 6" x 3.75" x 2.5"
  • Dishwasher safe

Condition

Mess kits are in good, functional condition with some instances where the olive drab exterior has been scratched exposing the aluminum beneath.

Awesome little kit.

Mine, understandably, had some yellow residue in it, but it cleaned easily. It was probably just some Kielbasa grease a soldier lubricated his mess kit with.

For real though, I love this and will be using it on my next camping trip.

Polish M70 Aluminum mess kit

I bought 2 Mess kits, -One was nearly new and almost perfect. The other had obviously been used, and still had the remnants of the greasy stew the owner had been eating. A trip or 2 through the dishwasher and it was fine. The nice one is now in my bugoutbag, filled with stuff.

Great kit

Been meaning to get a mess kit in this style for years. Kidney shape packs well in a bag, or hangs on the outside of a bag by the handle. Large internal space means you can pack at least a day or two worth of food inside the kit. Very versatile for packing light when going innawoods.

Very good

Is metal, holds hot food or drink. Not much else to it.
