Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excited for this Cookset for Two Going on a motorcycle trip to Alaska this June and we'll be limited in what we can carry in just 3 cases. I felt it was high time we got a backpacking cookset so we will be ready for backpack camping. I wanted a pot and a pan, cups were ok to have, and plates. Although this set doesn't come with plates, as soon as I realized the diameter of the whole kit was ~8", I knew I had a solution already: kid's plates from Ikea! They are BPA-free, dishwasher and microwave safe, and sturdy. The kit arrived today and I was able to fit two plates (the colors match!) and I could probably fit more! These plates are super inexpensive for a set of 6. I will review again once we actually put this set up to a test run next weekend (motorcycle camping in Eastern OR).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy, Smart The fact that it fits all in the pot is my favorite part. The bowls allow for some extra storage (small stove, matches, baggies of seasoning, etc.). I also like that the bowls have measurement markings in them; it can be really important if you're in a predicament with water or if you just happen to be a precise cook. The wash basin works great. Even though the handle gets rather hot after a some time over a fire, I still give the set 5 stars. Besides you could just get a miniature pot holder and stuff it one of the mugs or bowls. It's relatively light, easy to clean, easy to organize, and the basin makes carrying larger amounts of water less of a burden.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Gourmet yet really minimalist setup Well, I discard the cups so that I can keep the fuel and burner internally. The stackable system could only be better if it was 2-3cm in diameter smaller so that it could fit in a BearBox. The package is NON-STICK, which makes it 100% better than JetBoil options, all of which I've returned. The simplicity means longer boiling times but I simply will pay for fresh fuel on each trip, and on each trip I'll never use an entire fuel supply, so there's no rush!!!! The pan is excellent, so is the pot (I use both at home too) and the lid is superb. Excellent for heat retention and draining pasta etc. My only advice to GSI would be to supply an extra handle. If you;re switching pot and pan in a hurry when cooking up your dinner the cookware is too hot to handle so switching the handle from one to the other means some burnt fingers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Set for Canoe Camping I've carried this set on a couple of BWCA solo trips and have been very satisfied with the results. The MSR Windpro stove is a good match for the size of the pot and frypan. Heat distribution is good without hotspots that burn frying fish or pancakes. The strainer top should not be used with the frypan since IT WILL MELT. Don't ask... All in all it's a good set and one that will do its job within its parameters.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good 2 person cookset The ridges on the bottom of the pot and pan are well pronounced so even on a slant, the pot stays put on the stove. The lid is great - has holes for straining and really retains the heat well. The straps to keep the set together slip sometimes but that's really only if you pick it up by them and carry it around, not a big deal but can be frustrating when quickly trying to pack up. It takes a couple times of putting the handle on and off before you get the hang of it but it's VERY sturdy once you do! All in all, great set.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from NOT FOR BACKPACKING! This is a great cook set dont get me wrong, there is alot that you get for your money. but the problem is in the name, "bagaboo backpacker" this is not a cookset for backpacking, not at all while its not the heavest cookset ive seen it is bulky and will take up alot of presious space in your pack. If you are a person looking for somthing to take car camping, or just someone that likes to cook in the outdoors this is a good set. But if your looking at somthing for your pack I would look elsewhere. Dont be fooled by the name.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Buy an extra handle My only complaint about this cook set is that it needed an extra handle. Thankfully when I went into rei the sales associate told me that they do not sell them but the manufacturers website carries replacement handles. I bought one and it is so much easier. We only use it for car camping, not backpacking, as the name suggests. Easy cleanup, as everything is non stick. I do use the carrying case that comes with it as a "sink" as it suggests.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Compact and convenient My only complaint is that the detachable handle is a little difficult to go back and forth between the pot and the frying pan while cooking with both of them.

Since this cookset is made for 2 backpackers, can I also combine 2 plates from the GSI Outdoors products? This set comes with everything except 2 plates. Will the plates be able to fit inside with everything else?

Asked by: CulturalDynasty
Once I realized the diameter of the pot and pan (essentially the whole kit) was about 8" I checked out my cupboard and saw that the kid's plates I got from Ikea were the same size. My Bugaboo cookset arrived today and I just fit in 2 plates! They are BPA free, microwaveable/dishwasher safe, and pretty sturdy (I've had them for ~ 2 years). Best part: very inexpensive for 6 plates and the colors match the cookset! Will post pics in my review.

Does the fry pan function as a lid for the pot? Don't want to carry a "lid".

Asked by: dougpy
The frying pan is slightly smaller and nests inside the pot, so it cannot be used as a lid.
