Another Pocket Rocket fan here.  I have a 2, but still mostly use the 1 that I purchased twenty years ago.  Thy are combined with a miscellaneous bunch of pots and pans, survivors from various cook sets.  In some situations, an alcohol stove is preferable, anything from a classic brass Trangia to homemade.

For cooksets, my best buy ever was a milsurp Army Mountain cook set, two aluminum pots and a frying pan/lid.  Cost about five bucks back in 1958....
