Delicious—much better than canned foods. Very spicy hot. High in salt (eating one packet which is two servings provides about 70% of the RDA in salt). As good as some high quality frozen dinners. The consistency, is a little like left over Chinese food all mixed together, but it is still delicious. Some AlpineAire freeze dried food requires cooking after the addition of water—this product is not one of those—just is add hot water and stir. I would buy this packet again and be happy with it.

Absolutely delicious—as good as mashed potatoes from a top notch restaurant or grandma’s kitchen. I was scraping the sides of the package to get every last bite. The consistency was exactly like mashed potatoes. High in salt (eating one packet which is two servings provides about 70% of the RDA in salt). I would buy this packet again and be very happy with it—maybe even eat it at home!

The non-stick feature of the pans was tested in two ways: 1) by frying two eggs without oil or butter and 2) cooking Jasmine rice (not minute rice). Neither the eggs nor the rice stick to the pans, but they do cling a little. The eggs could be flipped with the MSR spatula, but it did require a bit of prodding. The pans cleaned up with only a few gentle scrapes with the MSR spatula or spoon, followed by a wipe with the shammy. Had this test been done with my father’s aluminum uncoated pans, the clean up would be long and require much scrubbing with a wire scouring pads—I can testify.

Soups, chili, and beans present no challenge whatsoever to the non-stick pans. The food sauce beaded up on the sides of the pans and cleaned up is a rinse with water and a couple of shammy wipes.

Two cups of water boil in about two minutes which is consistent with the boil time of 1.75 minutes predicted by the MSR Dragon Fly stove specs.
