Feed the whole posse on your next trip with the Flex 4.

Forget the freeze-dried crap—when we’re camping out of the car or in basecamp, we know how to cook up right. And we’re pretty sure we’ve never seen a cooking and eating kit as comprehensive as the MSR Flex 4 Cooking System. For the chef, there’s a huge 5.3-liter, double-handle anodized pot, a 3.2-liter non-stick pot, two strainer lids, and a Talon pot grabber. For the hungry crew, there’s four DeepDish plates and four insulated stainless steel mugs. The coolest part? When the meal’s over (and your buddy has cleaned up the mess), the whole package nests inside the larger pot for easy storage.

Great set for Sea kayaking.

The set is awesome. The large pot great for making a big batch of noodles and also big enough for boiling crab. I shoved an MSR frying pan under the bottom plate and it closes up just fine.
I used it for 4 months straight while we remodeled, both pots held up great.

Love this set

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My family looks forward to using this set every time we camp. Highly recommend. Love the multi-colored mugs!!! We use all of it for a big family of 5. bought extra mug from them too.

Looking for a quality set that is durable,...

Looking for a quality set that is durable, non-stick, cooks meals without burning meals, and is a good value. Down to choosing between the MSR Flex 4 Cooking System and GSI Outdoors Pinnacle Camper Cookset. Which is the better purchase?

Best Answer Responded on

• Higher quality
• More durable
• Better lids, mugs

• Has a frying pan
• Less expensive
• More components

Personally, I prefer the MSR, but the price differential is real. MSR: $160+$30(frying pan) = $190, $60 more than the GSI. If money is tight, the GSI might seem attractive, but in the long run the MSR will get you more for your money (just my opinion).

Source: I have the MSR and my friend has a smaller version of the GSI (same components though). I've used both on several occasions.

Love it

We bought this kit last year and used it on a week long bwca trip. Everything worked well but one of the pots started to loose it's non stick surface after a serving of diced potatoes was cooked up. We returned set after trip n had it replaced. New set is working good. we were able to cut our cooking gear in half with this set. Works awesome. If you don't have it, u better get it!

Has anyone tried cooking rice on the pot...

Has anyone tried cooking rice on the pot with strainer holes? I was wondering if the holes would make cooking rice a bit more difficult.

Best Answer Responded on

It is a trade off. The strainer is great for everything but rice. The lid locks on so that the food can not spill. I have used the car camping a bunch. I have put a SS mug or other piece of metal over the holes and the rice has turned out great.

i've had my eye on this set for a long time now, but i was wondering a few things... if anyone can help me out:

-what's the quality of the plastic dishes?
-do they stain from any type of food easily?
-something that wold hold up for 7 months on the appalachian?
-anyone have the actual weight for this set plus the pan you can add?
-how well does the non stick actually work? eggs, pancakes?

MSR does it again and again...

Well MSR does it again. If you are looking for the perfect cooking system look no further! You really get 2 in one here. If you have a group of 2 or more take the whole system, by youreslf just take the small pot. The weight of this system is unbelievable just like its durability. The built in strainers are perfect for simple cooking. My wife even uses it in the kitchen! This is a versetile and well made system. If someone complain about this product they should have stayed at home. Oh yeah and the clean up... there is no clean up nothing seems to stick.

Amazing product

I used the MSR flex 4 system in all weather conditions over this spring break camping along the Appalachian mountains. It cooks fast and cleans up even faster. The non stick pots made it real easy for cooking and cleaning.

Hello Ed,
I wondered about the colorful plates, is it made from plastic or stainless steel plated?

Those pots, I’m Asian so I will be cooking steam rice; do you think it will be good for it? The reason why, I asked is because there’s a stainless steel I have it burned my rice even when lower the heat.

Hope to hear from you, Sandra
