I used this set in combo with 2 different "Mini Bull Designs" alcohol stoves up to 10,000' elev as cold as 30 degrees. Each stove (Iso, MiniSith, and a homemade Pepsi can stove) worked well and I am glad I made the pot purchase. PROS: Affordable, lightweight, easy to clean, nestles well together, fast boil time. CONS: won't nestle with Trek 1400, lid doesn't fit tightly with handles out, handles can get hot, can be a little tippy. NOTE: I used a small cloth to quiet down any rattling the set made in my pack.

I am glad I purchased both a spoon and a fork for eating soup and fish. The fork is a must for preparing fish and the spoon is good sized and efficient(unlike sporks). The set is lightweight and functional. although as the other reviews point out, the fork tines are a little weak. An added bonus is the cool removable mini cable that can be used to keep the set together like a couple of keys.

The two of us used the 1400 in combination with the S.P. Titanium Cookware - 3pcs. Both sets fit tightly together in the 1400 stuff sack, therefore packing compactly and quietly. We had all the pans we needed to do some lightweight creative cooking. PROS: large, well designed handles and lid, solid, excellent container for the entire kitchen(we used mini alcohol stoves). CONS: handles can get hot so a grabber could have come in handy(the "Mini Bull Designs' ISO" stove burns super hot).
