Rated 4 out of 5 by from Indestructable cookware I bought these pots from REI around 20 years ago when they were the newest thing on the market, and they've cooked some pretty complicated meals all over the country. Mine are dented, discolored and just plain ugly, but they have somehow managed to survive the multiple back country trips that I've taken with my 3 sons. The clip where the handle attaches to the pot is about shot on the smaller of the two, but I'll buy a different pot holder before I retire these diehards. True, the set is a little on the heavy side compared to more space-aged gear, but I'm a little bit heavier than some of the younger hikers I've seen on the trail as well.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Bulletproof These popts have served me well for almost 15 years. They have taken abuse and are still in good shape. I wish that MSR would make these available in Ti as weight has become more of a consideration. The set they do offer in Ti is not just lighter but smaller and the lid can't be used as skillet. The size and the skilet are big advantages to this set only weight could possibly make it better. One of the reasons size is important is it fits an MSR heat exchanger, whisperlight stove, lifter and 2 sets of silver ware. Be sure to use a strap if you fill the pots with the stove, exchanger, silver ware, etc. It can make a mess when everything spills out if you don't.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great all around cookset Since we just started backpacking recently we decided to go somewhat bombproof and get something that cooks well, cleans easily, and isn't finicky. This set fits the bill perfectly. Although I'm considering getting a ti pot for our boil and go trips this set is a solid part of my camping kit whether I'm backpacking or car camping - especially since both of us really appreciate the versatility of having a pot with decent heat distribution. For the comments on cleaning, I've found that a light sprinkling of salt (which I carry anyway) really scrubs the bottom clean very quickly. Works even for baked on scrambled eggs.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great pots, but the lid isn't a frying pan. I've used these pots for 5+ years on several different stoves and on a cooking fire. They are a little to heavy for ultra-light backpacking but unlike most camp cookware, but they don't have a coating that will give you prostate cancer you or lead to alzheimer's. So the lid frying pan, the lid will instantly oil can with heat and the middle of the lid is raise so all the oil collects on the outside if the lid. Its also way to thin to be a frying pan, if you use it as a frying pan, everything will stick and burn. You want a frying pan, buy a frying pan.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over the fire or with a stove... This is an outstanding product! When used over a fire it is hard to beat stainless. As the metal becomes dark on the outside the heat is spread more evenly across the surface... I have used this for everything, and love how the lid doubles as a plate or a skillet. It can be buried under a campfire or used on a ministove (Pocket rocket). I carry a small bottle of Olive oil to help with the sticking issues, but there is always some cleaning that has to be done, as with any stainless cookware. The new lighter stuff is great for stove cooking, but this is awesome for any use you may have... enjoy!!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just a quick note... I just bought these to update my old sigg aluminum cookset, since I don't like leached aluminum and I don't like everything I cook to taste like the last thing I cooked. I haven't gotten to use them yet, but I just wanted to make a quick note after the last review- you can't heat snow in a pan unless you put a little bit of water at the bottom first, because otherwise you are essentially heating the pan dry until enough of the snow melts to coat the bottom. If you do not take this precaution first, you are likely to have problems with you camping cookset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Light weight and can't get any better. I can't say anything bad about this products. I boiled hot water to make coffee less than 2 minutes. I have cooked just about anything on medium high. If you don't want your food sticks to metal, don't put it on high. Very easy to clean. I use GSI and MSR cleaning products.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for cycle touring I replaced some smaller pots with these pots because my beloved Dragonfly stove fits inside. This saved me space without giving up a thing. For a cycle tourist this is invaluable. I have toured through SE Asia, China, the west coast and Mexico with these pots and they just keep on performing. They are very durable and the handle works well for me.
