    Put away for the big one if it happens. The kit was $10 cheaper the day after I bought it. Hate that!!

    Had issues with all the food sticking to the pots. Wrecked them first use. Luckily only brought them for a short camping trip where they were only needed once.

    Haven't use it yet, but it appears to be very well made. High quality. Great value for all you get in the set.

    I backpack and try to keep my pack weight down as little as possible. While aluminum is a bit heavier than titanium these aluminum pans distribute the heat of my alcohol stove very well. I like to cook real food while backpacking as opposed to just boiling water and dumping into a bag of freeze dried stuff.

    One more big plus to this set is that it is two pots with pan lids that can be separated and packed as two separate sets. My alcohol stove and windscreen fit nicely inside each pot and lid so I now have a cook set for me and a separate one for someone else.

    I was not disappointed.

    Have not used it yet, but fits my style of camp cooking. Seems well made and sturdy. Would have been just as good without the plastic stuff. Bowls not really needed and kind of small. Not sure why I need the ladle.

    I haven't had a chance to try them out yet. The cookset is small, lightweight & very compact. Smaller and lighter than I imaged, which was good.

    I received this set last week and use it with homemade alcohol burner and stand. I cooked oatmeal in the small pot and black beans in the large pot. They both heated evenly with no scorched or burned spots and cleaned up incredibly easily. The anodized aluminum appears to have non-stick properties. This set is heavier than my titanium set but costs 1/3 as much and I cannot imagine bending or denting them. The included serving bowls add unnecessary weight in my opiniion so I replaced them with small plastic containers with sealable lids from the dollar tree. The collapsable ladle is great and I used it to serve nice hot black beans with no problems. Part of the reason I got this set is that the lids double as frying pans. I have not used them as such yet but if they are anything like the pots they should be great. Finally, I will use the small pot by itself for solo trips to reduce weight by more than half.
