- Q & A
Light and sufficient for 1-2 people.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
Was a bit skeptical of this set initially as it was a fair downsize from my previous aluminium set, but the weight was really selling me. Once I got them, I was completely assured. The size is just enough for a 2 person pasta/noodle meal in the larger pot, which was my main requirement. The set is ridiculously light (which it should be at this price), but I have also been really impressed with the non stick properties. I rarely have food stick and its always easy to clean in the event that it does. I manage to fit my stove (pocketrocket), gripper (included), swiss army knife, piezo, and primus windshield all inside this set closing easily. Comes with a nice storage sac as well to keep it tidy and together in a pac. Has seen a fair bit of use so far and its still like new. It is fairly susceptible to small dings, but not a big deal. If you're doing miles with this thing in your pack, or elevation for that matter, then its well worth the price.
These pots are incredibly light. When you get to the point that every ounce matters, this is one piece of gear that I was easily able to justify the investment. I've used them on 7 trips so far and they have not scratched or dented at all. I have some issues with food sticking, but I just scrub a little sand in there and let them soak and they're good to go. Overall, I'm in love.

Anyone have an opinion on using this with a wood stove (emberlite titanium? sa
Normally you are not supoused to use titanium pots on an open fire, but the emberlite looks like the fire is pretty small and not going to get as hot as a campfire.
Titanium pots work GREAT on wood fires. The worst thing that can happen is creosote build up on the bottom. Even if you run dry and have a blast-furnace fire, you won't get the 3000 F degrees to hurt the pan. Aluminum will be a puddle well before this (~1200F degrees).
Emberlit is a great little stove. Perfect under a 2L pot for boiling water on the fuel-cheap and light.

Is the LiteLifter pot grabber sold separately?
It is included with this cookset, but can also be purchased separately for $15 or so.

Can you tell me the dimensions of this cookset ?
I might be slightly off, but it's going to be about 6.5" diameter, by just under 4" tall. That's on the 1.5L w/lid.

Can an MSR Dragonfly stove fit inside this set? What are the dimensions?
I have an MSR XGK that is almost identical to the Dragonfly and will fit into virtually any 1 liter pot. I would be surprised if your Dragonfly did not fit.
I have the Titan 2L pot and the dragonfly JUST BARELY fits inside. I have to orient the stove correctly and pack it like a puzzle, and then the lid fits on without a millimeter to spare. So I doubt the stove would fit in a smaller pot. The reason is the pot supports are so bulky.
