Don't end up with burnt fingers!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

When you buy this pot, you will take it into the backwoods to cook with.
When you cook with it back there, you will get a little fancier than boiled water, so you'll try for a a simple 4 course chicken tetrazzini, and rigatoni meal.
When you cook the rigatoni, you'll try to cover the boiling pot, with the fry pan as a lid.
When you use the fry pan as a lid, you'll notice it doesn't have a green handle as advertised, so you will use the gripper.
When you use the gripper, you will notice it doesn't fit under the inverted fry pan edge, that you are using as the lid.
You will grab the lid with your fingers, and you will burn them.

Don't end up with burned fingers, buy something else!

Can this be used with the Primus OmniFuel Stove?

Responded on

Hi,

Oh yeah, absolutely. No problems whatsoever. As a matter of fact, I also have an OmniFuel, and I have yet to find any cookware that it doesn't work with, regardless of the manufacturer or material.

Would the size of these pots and frying pan be to large for an MSR pocket rocket?

Responded on

It should work, but with all backpacking stoves you want to be careful to find a nice flat stable spot to cook.

Is this compatible with the Optimus SVEA?...

Is this compatible with the Optimus SVEA? Or anyone have a cookset recommendation for the SVEA?

Responded on

About any cookset is compatible with the SVEA if you are careful

Very Nice Set

This is a great little cook set. The pan and one of the bowls has a non-stick surface. The other pot has a heat exchanger. This is a nice feature but it makes it a little heavy for backpacking.
I am able to fit my stove and fuel canister inside the pot when stored for packing. I like this efficiency very much.

Great product

Very light and durable and the carry case is great for keeping food warm. My only minor complaint is when the frying pan is used face down as a pot lid, the gripping handle can't be used to lift the pan, so either place it on the pot face up or you'll need oven gloves. Very nearly 5 stars.

Hey fellow trail folk, My question, has anyone used this pot/pan set with an Optimus Crux stove? Not the lite but the regular crux. Can I pack that stove into this cookset and with what size fuel canister. Like many of us I am trying to get the most for the least in costs and in weights and volume. Thanks a bunch in advance !

I have not used this set yet, just purchased it but after looking at a lot of brands on BC over the week, this youtube video i found breaks down its uses and fuel saving properties...sounded like a win win in my opinion.

Hey Newbie here to backpacking and I am looking for a cookset. I was wondering if you can use this set with a wisperlite international stove? and will it pack up inside it? Thanks for the help.

You're smaller pot in this set is 1.7L and the Whisperlite (4x4x4" folded)needs a minimum of 1.5L to stow. The dimensions work out, so you should be fine nesting it inside, but with the Teflon coating, you'll need to wrap the stove to protect the finish.

Responded on

Any follow-up to this shaynebear? Do the dimensions work out? I'm a newbie with the exact same question. Thanks alot!

I just received this set along with the MSR wisperlite international and it does indeed fit inside. It's a very snug fit as well so there is no rattling around.

Slick, rattle proof Kit

Pots that are ultra light often burn foods because of hot spots. The bottom of 2 of these pots have corrugated bottoms which disperse heat without burning the food! The largest pot has a heat exchanger which is MUCH welcome! Kind of its own windscreen.
Instructions say first to coat with a high heat oil (I used olive oil) and they just easily wipe clean with a cloth...no sticking; even ham, eggs, and cheese melted in the pan!
Lots of room to store stuff: I have some small wooden utensils (spatula, spoon, stirring spoontula) that I use because I don't want to scratch the anodised coating. However, the coating seems so solid that I could probably use metal utensils. I put a washcloth in the pot, with a plastic container of olive oil and a small container of spices; another drying cloth between the top pot and the nice soft case.
Have not tried to keep food warm by putting the pot in the case after cooking, as instructions suggest.
The whole kit rides, rattle proof, in my motorcycle saddlebag or topcase (gotta watch stuff there, tends to shake, rattle, and roll!)
Very impressive kit! Works great with my Optimus Nova Plus stove, pots are very stable. The added pot holder is a nice addition! Mine did not have a green handle like in a former picture. I think it would just add more bulk. One potholder is all you need.

Good review, Mitchell, but I would like to add a suggestion: use flax seed oil to season pots and pans. It has a much higher smoke point than olive oil, which is actually low in the range of cooking oils, and six times the . Flax seed oil will provide a very hard, low stick sealant on the surface and remain in place for many scrubbings. Check out this link for more detailed info: http://sherylcanter.com/wordpress/2010/01/a-science-based-technique-for-seasoning-cast-iron/
See you out on the road.

Best Answer Responded on

Lea, you can use about any cookset with Jetboil as long as you have the pot stabilizer. The stabilizer connects to the burner for cookware support.

No green handle in sight.

Just got the cookset and works great! But, indeed, there is NO green handle. Wonder why they included one?

Don't let these little buggers slip past you, they are elusive out of the box, but its a handy storage place for later on.
