The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.
Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.
Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.
REI Campware Nonstick Cookset - Mediumis rated4.2out of5by10.
Rated3out of5byRamblin retireefromSpace efficientWe bought the non stick cook set for its nesting and therefore compact format. It served us well in this way as well as being easy to clean. We lost confidence in the clamp style handle when the lids kept sliding off. It never let us down when lifting the pots, just the lids, which leaves us a little doubtful when handling this set.

Rated4out of5byPackerland18fromGreat SetGot this set for 2 of us. Kind of big, but we just plan on taking just the smaller set (small fry & pot)with us when we go backpacking. We are "light-weight" backpackers, but love food, so don't limit ourselves here. I need something that I can pay fry up our catch! Wish it came with bowls/sporks, but no biggie, found some GSR ones that fit nicely into the kit + sporks, gotta love them. 4-star review cause of the handle...it's not the best, but it's fine.

Rated5out of5byTeamoremlandfromGreat set of cookwareMy husband and I have taken this set camping with us. It is a great set of cookware. We're able to cook a full meal with these pots and pans. We didn't have any issues. Clean up was a breeze!

Rated5out of5byHappy Happy Happy CampersfromGreat gear! Wonderful to cook with!I just returned from a three day trip where I used this equipment for the first time. I couldn't be happier! The equipment cooked evenly, heats up quickly, is very compact, and super easy to clean up! I couldn't believe how quickly the pots cooled down after using them. It was great to not have to wait around for it to cool before stowing our gear for the night. We used this set to prepare each meal for my family of four, and even cooked chili for eight people without any problems.
I'd recommend purchasing an extra handle if you are going to be cooking multiple things at the same time. The handle is super easy to use and very sturdy. The handle gets a little warm if you leave it on for a while, but you can either pop it off when not in use or simply use a pot holder.
Be sure to use utensils that won't scratch off the non-stick coating.

Rated4out of5byHolasrmateofromGood Starter Multi Person KitIts a little heavy and over kill for solo backpacking but for the cost, its a great for a group that together you don't go camping/backpacking that often. This kit has changed over the years, originally an affordable self contained mess kit with plastic bowl and cup that never really stacked that well with the handle, so I'm glad to see that REI moved in this direction. Perfect if you don't want to commit to titanium yet and for guest campers who collectively don't spend as much at REI as you do.

Rated4out of5byAlpineDfromGood, light and portableI've used an MSR kit similar to this for years so my comments are based on that experience and I've used the set for both backpacking and car/canoe camping and intend to use this REI set in the same manner. I've never been a stickler to get every oz of weight out of my cooking gear because I enjoy eating, backpacking or car camping. I skimp on other things but not cooking gear.
I've only used this a couple times but here are my impressions:
- It is comparable to my previous MSR kit and overall, I like it as a replacement.
- It is easily light enough for backpacking with 2-4
- Non-stick surface works as describe, easy to clean.
- Packs well and cooks evenly.
- Lid doubles as pan is very convenient (my MSR kit did not have this function)
My biggest gripe (but a minor gripe) is the handle design. This could be due to being used to the old clamp style but I find that style much more secure. But with all things, the con to the clamp style is that over time it will scratch the pot and it did that on mine although I didn't care much because the non-stick part of the pot at the lip does not get used. The grip also feels a bit loose/sloppy and doesn't "feel" as secure (but may be due to newness). The last bit is the way you have to use the handle for the lid/pan combo, it's very awkward and not as convenient as you will have to release the handle from the pan and then you can use for the pot. The angle of the handle on the lid takes a bit getting used to.
I hope to get years of use out of this set and at this point, believe that ti should.

Rated5out of5byMr ChadfromGreat little camp setWe've used this set 2 times now during our car camping outings and they have worked as expected. Areas that have exceeded expectations are its durability and easy clean up. It doesn't appear that the surface will scratch very easily on these pans.
