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.
Rated4out of5bykaictlfromVery useful, more than you would thinkSo I just recently got this, and was doing some tests with it to see how it would do with my Snow Peak Gigapower stove. The pot fits perfectly, and the little grabber is okay. More on that later. The spork is okay, but a little weird to use at first.
As a test I decided to make one of those meal-in-a-pouch things, which usually just leave you with a really hot pouch because you poured a butt ton of hot water into this plastic/paper/aluminum bag. This is where the cozy comes in real handy. It is just the right size for the singleton puch meals, so you can hold the puch without the annoyance of the hot pouch or waiting for the food to get cold.
The little orange gripper isn't too bad, but it does heat up really fast, and as another reviewer said your best bet by far is to just use it to move the pot from the stove to the cozy and then pouring.
Without measuring stuff in the cup, it's probably a good idea to mark it at 1 and 2 cup measures. Besides that, this has been a really nice product. That and the little orange bit are the only reasons this isn't a 5 star product.
It even packs away nicely. If you have a 100g fuel canister and a small stove, you should be able to fit the whole thing in the pot without issue. The spork won't fit, but it's small enough you can stick it almost anywhere if you need to.
Going to run it through its paces in Big Bend in a few days.

Rated5out of5bymvg08fromGreat cooksetI use this for storage, making food, boiling water, a food dish, as a cup, etc. It works really well and I would highly recommend it for others who are looking for a multi-use minimalist cookset.

Rated4out of5byNathanHeeneyfromThis is all you need!This product is all you need for your trip! There is nothing missing from this simple set up. Quality is very high.
The only thing to be aware of when using the finger grippers is to pour out your water quickly. After prolonged touching of the pot the finger grip starts to heat up fairly quickly.

Rated5out of5byoceanhuggerfromTHIS IS MY GO TO SOLO SETThis kit is perfect for the price! If you're looking for entry level lightweight backpacking solo gear, this is amazingly right. The only ways that I could think of making it better would be to remove the magnet from the pot grip and to make the pot itself titanium. Also, find a mechanism for easing the opening of the lid. I've used this with a variety of aluminum can stoves as well as with some other isobutane stoves and it works just right. It is a bit heavy for ultralight but it's durable. Also, the secret to pouring hot liquids would be to use the pot grip only to lift off the stove and put it in to the cozy. Then use the cozy to pour or just eat straight out of the pot. The spoon is slightly effort-intensive to clean as opposed to other options, but it fits in the pot very easily. The width works well with a variety of soda can stove models and is very sturdy. I used mine for three months straight and suffered only some damage to the cozy, which just makes it look slightly loved. I would easily buy this again if anything fatal happened to my current set!

Rated4out of5byGemmafromGREAT! (Except the spork...)Bought one though REI and loved it so much my guy picked up another on the trip. This cup can't get any better. Our small generic pocket rocket like stove and tank fit like a dream inside. The cup fits on the bottom a standard nalgene bottle, which is a big plus at times. Only downside is the spork. Not very easy to clean and somewhat annoying to use. I keep it in my everyday bag for lunch and it broke after a month's use. BUY this set, but swap out the spoon!

Rated5out of5byOreo23fromGreat balance of weight price & comfortI have been cutting the base weigh in my pack by selecting products that are WAC (balance of Weight, Affordable and Comfort). This product delivers in all three areas.
The Foon/Spork is interesting I use it several times a week for my work lunches and feel so so about it. I have yet to find something that I like better.
I do wish it nested in the kettlest for when I go in groups of 3 or more.

Rated5out of5byalexwhittemorefromFantastic jetboil replacement +I'm impressed with the quality of this set given that it's one of the cheapest cook sets REI sells. The lid/sippy cup top works great for both functions, the pot holder is very well thought out (provides coverage for the two fingers inside the pot so they don't burn, just thick enough to be effective without being bulky, gimmicky magnet is actually really useful).
My main annoyance is that the spork, though it seems to collapse small enough to fit in the lid (according to the box), does not - the handle is just a bit too long. Depending on what stove you have, this makes fitting the spork in with the rest of the gear a bit tricky.
I've used this with a SnowPeak GigaPower auto and I'm very, very pleased.

Rated3out of5bykdgrant6fromVery Good with limitationsThis unit's compactness is, of course, its best feature. Two things buyers should note: the unit's width as related to stability and the usefulness of the pot grabber. I've used it with a Trangia alcohol burner sitting atop a Westwind triangular stand. I have to place it carefully to keep it from turning over. Second, the pot grabber works well enough, but trying to pour boiling water into another container (such as a freeze dried food package) is tough because of the heat. The spork's usefulness is minimal.
