Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cook set for the adventurous duo I bought this cook set for a hiking trip along the North Shore in MN. I needed something light weight and setup for the two of us. This fit the bill nicely following other reviews I quickly tossed the included collapsible sporks and threw in a couple of cut down snow peak titanium sporks which saved a bit of weight are are quite a bit sturdier, which to me is more of a preference thing. My MSR Pocket rocket fits quite well nested inside one of the bowls. I almost could fit a small fuel bottle inside as well but not quite. This setup is also easy to clean and I have had no issues with the finish at all. In summary a great piece of kit no complaints.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solid cooking set My wife and I purchased the set for us to use backpacking about a year ago. Since then, it's held up very well. The bowl and cup for drinking area a great size, plus the cover over the drinking cup makes it easy to hold and keeps temperatures consistent for cold/hot drinks. The pot works great and we love the non-stick. The lid if beyond convenient with the built-in strainer. Everything stacks well and fits great into the sink bag. Our only complaint is the quality of the foons. They're lacking in strength. I broke mine after four uses and my wife gave up on hers. Most backpackers have a lightweight spork and can easily work around this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty Good, Overall. I've taken this kit on two backpacking trips so far and overall, its performed exactly the way I wanted it to. The bag it comes in works nicely as a 'kitchen sink' and most everything seems to be very well thought out. My only complaints are what looks to be the same as everyone else: the foony things (sporks) are VERY flimsy (one has already been broken, stirring oatmeal) and the lip on the cups is an odd design. It leaks down the side of the cup and onto the thermal-band-thingy when you take a sip. Very annoying, but not a deal-breaker.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of my favorite purchases I love this cook set. Very lightweight and versatile. A buddy has a jetboil and initially defended it as the best product but now when we go, he leaves it at home because this cook set does all we need for 2 people. I don't agree that it isn't durable as stated by other reviewers. The only issue is that the sporks could be tougher but they are cheap to replace. Lots of thought went into the product including vents and pop-up plastic handle in the pot lid, neoprene sleeve around the mugs to protect against heat and I'm amazed that I can fit the fuel, stove element and everything else into such a small package. The finish on the inside has held up really well but I have been careful to avoid metal utensils of any kind. The only thing it lacks is a fry pan so I pack one separately when needed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for two! After research for months, I finally decided to purchase this kit. Nothing negative to say, it's great! My wife and I spent a week in the redwoods and used this for every meal. It's super light and compact, and is truly multi-functional. After reading other reviews about the flimsiness of the eating utinsels, I was a bit worried. Although, we had no issues. Heats up super fast and is very easy to clean. If something ever happens to this kit, I'll buy another one!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Does what's it supposed to Generally when we are out hiking we just eat top ramen and this is ample size to boil enough water for the both of us, and though the bowls look small they were big enough for a pack of top ramen. The sleeves for the bowls are pretty useful as well as the sipping lid for the bowls. I haven't had issues with the sporks like some people have and I have used this on multiple trips. This is a light weight set that has everything you need for 2. No complaints.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Spoork (Foons) FAIL!!! I really like using my cook set. very light and big enough for my food cooking and heating. it has space for my fuel. the bowl outside lining... gunius. the only gripe... the spoork (FOONS). it keeps on breaking.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent one-pot two-person Excellent and compact solution to providing a decent capacity pot, plus a "mug" and food bowl for two people. By stacking everything as the diagram on the pot shows, you can fit a fuel cannister and small stove inside, but I prefer a solo stove and alcohol burner instead for the flexibility of wood as a backup and renewable fuel. Either way, you have a lot of flexibility for packing. The welded sack is a tight squeeze, but a nice addition to the set for those who like to wash up a little more when water is more easliy available. The one shortcoming is the utensils. They are really rather flimsy, and short in length in order to fit in the kit. Do yourself a favor and get some better utensils.

Can I place the pot directly onto a coals or near the fire without any damage to the pot?  I am sure the lid may melt, but will the pot be okay?

Asked by: Kelly the Adventurer
I am going to add: after using many times car-camping and a couple times backpacking, that you can use a fire as long as you are aware of a couple things, but it is not recommended. (1) Fire can and will melt the rubber coating on the handle, and could melt the lid - Ive seen damage on the handle coating but not the lid - thus far.  I have used it sucessfully on a grill over the fire and coals, and on a backpacking wood burning stove many times.  Keep the handle away from flames, or cover with aluminum foil if necessary. (2) being aluminum, always keep liquid in it to absorb the heat and never let it run really low or dry on any flame - fire or burner.  So... you are responsible for going off recommended use. I love its size and this thick aluminum is good for cooking.

Is the lid supposed to seal onto the pot? I can't get it to lock on, which makes me nervous when it comes to boiling water when windy or straining pasta.
