Great Set

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Fortunately I was able to pick out my own birthday gift. After shopping around for different sets I decided on this one because it has what I needed and my family has used GSI pots and mugs for years and they have held up well. When it came time for me to get my own set I went with the tried and true brand that I grew up using. I am anxiously awaiting summer so I can finally go camping use this set.

I've put it through the wringer

I have been using this set for a while now. Love that I can mix and match for my specific needs. Can take the whole thing for car camping or break it up for backpacking. Easy to clean and transport. Does scratch easily, don't let your careless friends stir the pot with a metal utensil. Got this as a gift for a friend because I loved it so much! (not the one who scratched it of course)

Not ultralight but that's ok

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

I have used this kit a couple times and it works great. If you are looking for an ultra light weight set this is probably not for you. For backpackers that are not as concerned with weight this set is perfect for a couple people. The skillet and pot are very high quality and the non-stick works well. The newer version of the removable handle is much better with it being able to clip into place. This allows you to be able to tip the skillet of pot sideways without having to worry if the handle will fall off. The waterproof bag that it comes in works great for washing and cleaning up. The only downside to this kit is that it does not have any plates in it. The only thing they provide to eat in is the bowl/cups. I'm hoping to find some small plastic plates that can fit in the kit without any troubles. This is a minor thing to me and overall I'm very satisfied with the kit.

Fairly Diverse Cook Set

I've put it through the wringer

Versatile cook set for the backcountry. Pretty light and very compact. I've had mine for a few years and have used it quite a bit. However, it is not my current set up for the trail so I give it 4 stars only because GSI's bowl system is a much better go to for backcountry camping. Also, might go without say, but you can't really use the cooking device on an open campfire type flame. It will melt. These are designed for stoves.

Great Gourmet Cook Set

I've used it several times

This is a great overall cook set. It offers great flexibility at a reasonable weight. It have used it on a few backpacking trips with a larger group. The pot is a great overall size. The frying pan is also nice for car camping or even one night backpacking trips where weight is not a concern. The bugaboo finish is a great overall durable finish. The non stick coating works great as well. The mugs/bowls are alright. The bowls are really narrow and deep which makes for a little harder cleaning and eating. I would rather use a different more comfortable bowl if I am car camping. The mugs are a great size and the lids snap on tight. I only wish the sipper was in the middle rather than in the corner since it is a little awkward to drink out of. The case does a great job of packing everything together. It is water tight and does hold water and can be used as a sink. Overall this is a great gourmet camp cook set.

Love it

I've put it through the wringer

Used this set for both backpacking and just casual camping with friends. Works perfectly in both scenarios. Strainer lid is amazing when cooking pasta. Just pick a spot away from camp and pour out the water without worrying about your noodles going everywhere! The "storage sack" it mentions actually doubles as a washing basin. My favorite feature. Easily holds water that my dog drinks out of until I dump some soap in and clean off the dishes. Cups and mugs are pretty interchangeable if you need cups for 4 people. The difference is that one set has an insulated wrap to protect your hands from burning due to hot liquids. Teflon coating has lasted quite a bit and I have no food sticking complaints. Though I usually have bacon grease or something to help out when I'm cooking something that might be problematic. I would definitely recommend this set to someone not looking for a whole kitchen. Nice, simple, and light weight.

It's a great cookset, has all the essentials. Found it to be a great size when cooking for 2 people, could probably cook for more. It's really lightweight and packs into itself which is great on saving space. Happy with the purchase.


In the Picture it looks like there's 2...

In the Picture it looks like there's 2 pots and some plates, but in the description there's only 1 pot and nothing about plates or bowls. Whats am I actually getting when I buy this?
