Review Pros :
This is a very smartly designed kit; the way that it goes together is very clever.
For what you receive with this kit, the overall size is quite small.
Price is excellent for this kit – I’ve seen plenty of kits that include less that costs more.
High quality – for the money I would expect much less.
Aluminum core pots help with excellent heat distribution
Cleans up nicely
Durability has been excellent – I’ve had this kit for almost a year and it looks almost brand new – there is some discoloration on the bottom due to heat but that is to be expected.
Aluminum Cores : Just in case you don’t know, cookware can be made in numerous ways, for an example, it can be solid, single layer stainless steel or it can be multi-ply. Often called encapsulated cookware –
This is a multi-ply cookset as it features an aluminum center core in the bottom; aluminum is highly conductive and evenly distributes heat. Much better than stainless steel or copper.
The rubber hand grips on the size of the 2.5L pot need your attention; be aware of them and make sure to extend them before use – they could melt if you don’t raise them.
Cups are a bit weird in terms of shape and it is awkward to drink from them – you have to turn them a certain way to drink from them or the contents will spill out.
Some of the Colors are weird
In my opinion, this is an awesome kit and for the money I’m more than impressed by it. It’s well thought out, is self contained and for an overland set, car camping or a set in a cabin, this is perfect.
Funny story, the first time that I used this kit, a friend and I were about to fire up the stove and get dinner going. I grab this kit, start pulling out the components and my buddy says to me, just how much **** is inside of that pot? Lol This buddy was in the Marines and his language is colorful….always! Lol He’s a lot of fun to take to parties….watching the expressions of the people he talks to is priceless….most are accustomed to hearing such language. Lol
It’s not complete in my opinion as you will need a few other utensils to cook with but it’s an excellent start if you are looking for a system like this.
It’s too heavy to use as far as backpacking goes….or at least, that is the case for myself.
