    The REI Member Dividend

    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.

    MSR Flex Skillet

    MSR Flex Skillet is rated 3.375 out of 5 by 8.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from I am disappoint I was really excited to have found such a lightweight skillet to add to my Jetboil set-up...unfortunately, it failed to deliver day one. The first of four pitfalls began as I watched my eggs flip into the dirt. 1) ...not because I'd set my stove on a rock - it was on a level table - the pan itself is just too light. The handle is also quite light, which queues one to the thinness of the pan. 2) ...which warped within minutes of use. Because the pan is so thin and the bottom is flat, physics demanded a curve somewhere. Unfortunately, that resulted in the middle of the pan rising up. 3) ...into a convex dome. All but the thinnest layer of eggs surrounded the hump. The thick egg pool around the mound didn't want to cook while the thin center burned in seconds. 4) ...marring the middle of the non-stick surface permanently. Beautiful black crust forever marking a failed attempt at breakfast. I don't believe there is in existence a backpacking skillet per se. Instead, my solution is lighter kit and a heavier pan. REI's 8" non-stick frypan is its replacement and is almost flawless. 11.4oz vs 7oz is a massive difference, but one that I'll gladly make up elsewhere.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Highly disappointing We got this nonstick pan to expand our cooking options while backpacking. We understood its a thin and teflon and therefor is not the most durable. When packed in our backpacks I always ensured it was wrapped in an article of clothing to ensure it didn't get scratched or damaged. We brought a rubber spatula and still after only 4 outing it has lost the coating in multiple places on the pan. Even with extra care this nonstick pan is no longer nonstick. I will be returning this to REI and would recommend people avoid this product

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great light skillet I bought this pan to be a lightweight tool for backpacking. Although I'm not an ultralight backpacker, I try to keep my pack weight low yet keep some comforts. When I have the luxury of time to cook breakfasts, this pan works great. I use to cook a large variety of breakfasts (and sometimes dinners). It always produces great results. My only reservation -- and it is a small one -- is that I always remove the handle to pack so I may chose to leave the handle at home and use one pot gripper for this pan and my pot.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Nice lightweight skillet for backpacking I have been slowly upgrading my gear. I have a young daughter that I take on short backpacking trips and because I have to carry some of her gear it is important to keep the weight down. This is a great little skillet. We use it for pancakes and eggs and bacon and it works fine. Because of the lightness it does warp a little but that has not presented a huge problem

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid light pan This is a great pan for use over a backpacking stove. My wife and I tried it out on an overnight backpacking trip recently. It held plenty of food for a breakfast scramble and wiped out easily. The only downside (which is minor) is that because the handle folds over the top of the pan you can nest other items inside it.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great skillet I like this skillet because it heats fairly evenly and the handle comes off for easy storage. It kinda nests with the MSR Dragonfly because it is larger than the pots. No, it will not fit inside of the mesh bag included with the Dragonfly system. But for car camping/base camp this is a great skillet with high sides. I've even used it on my house stove for bacon!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jambalaya that's a pan We backpack a lot, and when we travel less than 5 miles; I like to bring some luxury items. This skillet was a recent acquisition and it came in real handy. The food did not stick; it held a lot of it and the picture enclosed shows a wonderful jambalaya meal that we all enjoyed. I highly recommend this and to others.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good for the money This is the best non-stick skillet to date. I bought a Jetboil skillet for my JB kit and hated it. I think they added glue to it stuff stuck so bad. Not so with the MSR. Out of the box, I fired up the pocket rocket and took it for a spin with bacon and eggs. Add a little water in the pan and low heat for your first strips. After a little of that yummy bacon grease gets to accumulating, you can turn the heat up a little more and go ahead and cook the first pound of bacon you brought with you. I tossed in a couple of eggs and fried them over easy(the only way to eat eggs). Nothing stuck at all. We have a winner. As with all non-stick cookware, I wouldn't go cooking over an open fire with it. They make cast iron for that. Not something the UL hikers will be doing anyway. Now. Why didn't I give it 5 stars, you ask? Well. There's a hump in the middle of the pan. I don't like that. It may have something to do with heat dispersion and what not, but A frying pan shouldn't have a hump in the middle. If you watch the flame on a flat pan versus a concave pan, the flames tend to concentrate in the center of the concave pan and distribute more evenly on a flat pan. Anywho, that's my only complaint. It's very light and cleans up easily. Oh, and don't forgrt to dump that bacon grease waaaay away from your camp site. You don't want any critters sneakin' up on you. Happy trails!
