A Nice Little Cookset
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I took this cookset backpacking through Europe, and it was absolutely fantastic! My sister and I mostly cooked vegetables and fried eggs with these pots and pans, and with a liberal amount of coconut oil they cooked beautifully. The egg hardly stuck to the pan (again, using quite a bit of oil) and the titanium conducts heat super efficiently. They are big enough to cook for two people so long as you are okay with cooking in batches at a time. They are super light and compact, definitely perfect for backpacking. We used the pan as a lid for the pots to prevent ashes from landing in our food; unfortunately, this may have been the cause of warping in the pan after only the first use. The set still fits together nicely, and seeing as we cook our food over an open fire pit, it is rather inconsequential to have a slightly warped pan. The handles get a bit hot, but wearing some thin leather work gloves was a quick fix for that. Overall, I'm super happy with the purchase, and I cannot wait for my next adventure with these little guys.
Good solo set
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
This set was a little smaller than I was looking for, so I had to return it before I could get the chance to test it out and see how it cooks.
It seemed really light, so it would be good for a super light backpacking set up.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Super light, super easy to use, I love the handles. But they are small, fyi, you won't be able to cook much in these. They are my lighter backpacking only pans
A fine little cookset
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is perfect for preparing your just add water dishes from the local grocery store. It's a nice compact piece of kit that comes with a handy stuff sack. With enough room to spare to include a pair of Snow Peak Trek Titanium Plates. I've used these year round including over a rolling fire during a snow storm. They're really very nice. The rattle a bit, I place tea bags in between pot just to improve noise discipline.
Great Solo Set
The is a nice compact and light set. I use the large pot to make meals and boil water. I use the small pot with Snow Peak Hot Lips as a cup and have used the pan for sautéing. I can fry a egg in the pan with no problems when I fry my bacon in the pan first and leave the grease in the pan. With any titanium cook set you do have to watch the heat and need a stove you can regulate if you really want to cook meals, but once you get used to it it is pretty simple.
Bought this while living in Japan back when I knew about nothing in the camping world. It has been over 10 years now and the set has been on many trips.
*Heats up very quick
*Holds my fuel canister
*Cleans up well
*No coating to wear out
The only downside is the handles can get hot and they can also bend on you at inoppurtune times. Like when you are draining noodles. Overall though the sheer toughness and the fact it functions just like new a decade later impresses me.
In case your were wondering about dimensions:
2 Pots/ 5-1/2diam" x 2-1/4", 5"diam x 2-1/8", Frying Pan/ 5-3/4"diam, nylon stuff sack
Great buy for a hiking cook set for 2
I've had a chance to use these on a few trips now, and I'm quite impressed. I used them both with my jet boil and on a rack over open coals in my camp fire, and they're no worse for the ware. Very light weight and durable. If you're looking for a compact light weight cooking set for 1-2 people these are a great buy.
It works..not crazy efficient but I use it for some of my homemade monster can stoves. the stove fits inside of it nicely and it cooks good enough. It's nice and light. The frying pan is really nice.
great for solo cooking
good set if you are out and only need to cook for yourself. if you need more than than this isn't the set for you. largest pot is good for cooking most anything you would need. light and durable no complaints here.
use a ruler to check size before ordering
three stars means "adequate for the job" according to the backcountry rating key. that's what this is.. adequate for one-person to warm boil some water and warm up small portions of grub. i disagree with the frying pan being really adequate for anything that isn't shaped like a mcdonalds burger patty in terms of size or thickness.. this kit is really, really small, the frying pan almost laughable, so make sure to break out a ruler and trace out the size of the kit before you order. it's really light, and very compact, but even as an ultralight-minded backpacker, this was too small for me to keep. sent it back to get somethign larger and more functional. your milage may vary..
cookware built for two...at most
I bought this set as a light-weight addition to my growing stash of "two person" gear. So far so good with durability and functionality. And it's super light weight! Though this set is pretty tiny.
Super light, pretty affordable, and they are a great size. I'm able to fit some first aid supplies inside which works great. They cook well and I am glad that i bought these.
Good, pay attention to size
5 stars, this set is fantastic, just don't expect to cook a lot in any of it. It's sized for fast and light solo, fits a canister stove and a titanium spork no problem. Basically it kicks ass
Good, But Caution
I ordered this set for my ultralight gear set. The product description is exactly as described. Light weight, multiple pieces, and it is perfect for a single person setup. The only problem I had with it is how it fits on the MSR Dragonfly stove (and my friends MSR Whipser). Due to the small pot base size, the biggest pot barely fits on the MSR Dragonfly (about 1/2" on the three grills). The MSR whisper grills are further spread apart so the pot doesn't even fit due to its small size (according to my friend). I'll have to post a base pot width so you can measure before purchasing. Otherwise this would have been a great set to have.
good for solo cookware. The "frying pan" is tiny, so you'll probably only wanna cook for one. Very light with adequate room inside for a backpacker's stove or small can of fuel. TIP. Bring only the bigger bowl and pan.
wonderul solo set
The set is very lightweight, super durable, and wipes clean with a little warm water. The only complaint I've had is I have to scramble one egg at a time on the small frying pan so if you're wanting to do more than that maybe invest in a separate frying pan but the two pots are wonderful for everything.
Small, Compact & Lightweight
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Cookware that gets the job done. Perfect for single servings. Ultra lightweight seems it wil holdup well. The handles get warm so have something to grab them with.
2016 update...8 Years later and it has proven to be extremely reliable, still looks like new. The price has increased $10 since 2008 but still a bargain. Don't let the gauge of titanium deceive you, I receive many compliments on size, weight and quality.
Can this nest a whisperlite?
Does anyone know the volume each piece...
Does anyone know the volume each piece will hold in liters? Don't like using ounces because of the imprecise fluid to solid conversions
The volume of the larger cookpot (5.5" x 2 1/4") is 26 oz; for the smaller cookpot (5" x 2 1/8"), the volume is listed as 18 oz; unfortunately, I cannot locate any total volume measurement for the frying pan (however, the diameter of the pan itself is 5 3/4" by likely something like 1/2" - 3/4", going off an educated guess), but don't look at the pictures and think you'll be able to Wolfgang Puck out of it. Depending on your heat source, it might be good for heating up pre-hydrated food or cooking an egg or two, something along those lines.
Hope this helps.

Hey ... I was wondering, does anyone out...
Hey ... I was wondering, does anyone out there have any decent backcountry recipes? I'm so sick of the freeze dried things.
Here are a few leads:
backpackinglight.com (go to Community, Forums, Food Nutrition & Hydration)
Mary Jane's Farm Organic hiking meals
One of my new favorites is the Idahoan(?) quick packs instant potatoes. They are roughly 4oz for about 500 - 600 calories and come in a bunch of different flavors. To add to that all you have to do is slice up some sausage links and you are ready to go. Plus all you have to do to cook it is to add 1 1/2c. water. I do mine in a freezer bag ziploc. Real good and super cheap (1 - 1.50$)
www.onepanwonders.com tons of really good ideas for backcountry meals that not only weigh very little but taste great.
if yer gonna do ramens go to an asian grocery store and buy the good ones. They cost more but are still practically free, maybe 50-90 cents instead of 25 cents for top ramen or maruchan, they are way better. I like to do ramen and buy pouches of chicken or tuna at the grocery store to add in. works well if you are making a couple ramens (you and a friend) then split the pouch of protein. makes a decent dinner for about 2 bucks each person. Or when I am in the Boundary waters I just throw some fresh caught fish in the soup.
The better quality ramens (the ones that come with real sauce and real soft noodles) are really good but do weigh a bit more. I found freeze dried strawberry cheese cake mix excellent (the ones graham crackers for topping) and I usually carry one can of SPAM, anchovies, oysters, crackers, a small bag of gummy bears, tortillas (i don't know why) and I'll take dry meat like jerkey or a salami roll and a new sealed thing of cheese cheddar marble cheese from the store. Those seem to last OK on a 5 day trek.
Write your answer here...I like a hot chicken dinner that can be made using only one pan in succession. Instant potatoes, Instant stuffing, chicken sold in a foil pack with instant powdered chicken gravy. All very easy to make put on a single dish and results in a good tasting filling meal
My wife & I have been using these recipes for quite awhile. It is specifically written for, like the title says, a one burner stove. You'll find the ingredients used are heavier than freeze-dried meals but much tastier. It also incorporates fresh ingredients. Here's a link to the book:
Get NOLS' backcountry cooking recipe. I cook their recipes in the front country as well
Is this set stable with the MSR pocket...
Is this set stable with the MSR pocket rocket ?
Should be perfect. Just make sure you set the stove somewhere stable. And flat. *Hey Jason, That is the combo that I use, and it works great for me. The stove and a few other small gadgets fit inside the larger pot as well, to save some space.
how many ounces does the snow peak titanium...
how many ounces does the snow peak titanium cookware hold?
27 oz for the big pot, 20 oz for the smaller pot, and about 9oz if you chose to use the frying pan.
Hi, I was wondering if someone out there...
Hi, I was wondering if someone out there could clarify if you can use this titanium cooking set on a open camp fire or not? Or is it made specifically with a cooking stove use in mind!Thanksholly
The only thing I would advise against is the clean-up afterwards. Don't worry about the heat. Titanium can handle the hottest stoves which is much hotter than any campfire.
