- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The gripper is a little bit loose in its middle joint so it will have a little bit of a wiggle but it is not to distracting while cooking. It is a little bit hard to remove from the pot sets when it is hot. So if you ordered the bugaboo or the pinnacle cook set i would defiantly recommend getting an extra one. Not the best gripper but it is needed if you have one of the gsi cooksets.
Feels like a hot wheels toy
I dont really have anything good to say about this product. I found it to be made from heavy metal, yet all of the joints are loose so points that would be made from being sturdy are lost. Also, I found that I could not switch from one pot to another while hot without some difficulty. Overall, I find this product to feel very flimsy, despite its heavy construction. In my opinion, the MSR pot gripper is light-years ahead of this one.
Don't leave home without it
I bought the GSI set at discount because the handle was lost. I figured a cheap rim-grabber would work just fine. I learned this week that there is a good reason to have the factory pot gripper. The lids have nice holes so that you can hold the lid on and drain out hot liquids. With the rim grabber, you end up with steam burning your hand as you pour because the lid does not seal where the rim-grabber is attached. The GSI pot gripper allows you to hold the lid on tightly and the steam does not come out the top on your hand and wrist.

1) Does this fit all GSI pots, I have a "GSI Gourmet Extreme" kit?
2) I currently use the Diamond Back gripper, but these are not very strong as the aluminium tab keeps bending, is this pot gripper stronger than the diamond back?
I have used this product several times. It works really great. I suggest that all that one one buy a spare or two, as I lost mine in the fire last weekend.
