Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great for Family Camping I just used the set the weekend for a family camping. I was great to leave behind the thinking of all the dinnerware and kitchen stuff I should bring. I just put this set on the bag and that was all. The coating is great which makes it super easy to wash. I cooked hot dogs, eggs in the morning and pasta and it all went great. A few things to consider: the metal is thing to make light and therefore it heats very quickly so you have to be careful not to burn anything, another point is that maybe you can consider something else to chop stuff in because I chopped some veggies in the dishes and they scratch with ease.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Clever, compact cooking set I already owned a cooking set, with pans that are about the same size, but if I want to take that set with me, I need about the same space for plates, mugs, etc. With this set it's already in there, everything fits very clever into each other. The shaping of the mugs is a bit odd, but it works like a charm for me. Also very nice that it comes with a frying pan that works - cannot say that about every cooking set! Since I only used it for a few weeks now, I cannot really say anything about the durability, but it feels sturdy enough. We used the cooking set outside the cabins that we rented on (KOA) campings, on a one stove burner. Took it back in our suitcase in the plane and will definitely use it next time we go camping in the US.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from GREAT SET I have been backpacking, now with llamas, for 50 years and this is the best set I have ever had. 2 small complaints that keep this from being a 5 star. The plates are kind of cheesy, and a second handle would be great and some silverware. But I have used this set probably 10-15 times backpacking and love it more every time. The tabs on the top are great, and the steam holes. You do need to make sure you have the handle full seated before you start cooking., and I just used the last part of my dividend for a second set for my popup truck camper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Set We used this set for the first time for car camping. There were some things we loved and some thing that underwhelmed us. We loved the compact shape and its ability to hold everything. The mugs are great. They kept the coffee hot. There are two parts to the cup- the main part of the cup with the foam sleeve and then an outer cup that goes over top of it. We found the outer cup is great to hold chopped veggies while cooking. And you still have a mug to drink out of! My husband had a hard time with the handle for the pots. He almost dropped the pot a couple of times because the handle was wobbly. Also, we used the frying pan on our whisper lite stove and it "buckled" in the middle, so our eggs ran off to one side. We will continue to use this set because of it's weight and ability to hold everything.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing cookset, clever design. Bought this about a month or two ago for our week-long trip to Mueller SP, CO. We have four children, so we'll probably and up buying an additional two sets of plateware. For this trip, we left the kids at home with Grandma (so it was just the wife and I). This cookset packs nicely and the carrying case served well as a wash basin. I can't say anything else better about this cookset that most of the other reviewers haven't already mentioned, but one thing is for sure - this will serve our family extremely well and will last a long time! We are planning on purchasing the dualist cookset (for kid-free trips) too. GSI makes some great quality products. We also have their canteens and have been extremely pleased with them too.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great cooking set This is a great cooking set for me and my wife. We played around with the handle a bit in non-cooking situations so we knew what we were dealing with once things got cooking (HA!). I do wish that it came with more than one handle though as I often use 2 burners to cook. The mugs and bowls work great for whatever you use them for. I made the mistake of using one of the plates as the grease catcher when i made bacon on a griddle one morning. Bad idea - the plate partially melted from where it came in contact with the griddle. MY FAULT. Plate looks funky but still works. The wash basin is nice, but i will probably buy a bigger one for camping this year as we usually camp in a group of at least 4 and have a lot to wash. I also like the color coding so people know which plate/cup/bowl is theirs.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great compact set My husband and I bought this set to make our lives a little easier when we pack to go camping/bike riding. We camp and ride about one weekend a month, more often in the summer, and needed a set that would fit in our grab-and-go box and not take up a ton of space. This one is great because it has everything you might need to cook a real meal AND all the pieces needed to feed everybody as well. The non-stick surface has held up well so far and the insulated coffee mugs have been a god-send on cold mornings. The only complaint I have is that the 'strainers' fit like lids and seem like they should hold up as such when cooking, however, we discovered that they WILL MELT if left on the pot while cooking. Fortunately we were able to remold its shape while it was still soft, but I was a little dissapointed that part wasn't more sturdy. We've been using the pan as a "lid" since then when needed. Other than that, we've been happy with the set so far and look forward to many years of use with it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good and Bad I was psyched when I bought this, and in most ways this is a great cook set. It's neatly engineered with a very efficient use of space, the way everything is designed to fit together. However, it does have a few drawbacks. First, the lids will indeed melt, as did one of mine. Now it doesn't fit and I had to pitch it. Yeah, I should have known, but still - cooking without lids? Second, the plates are Dollar Store quality. Third, even though the cups are well designed and handy, the neoprene sleeves can stretch and slip off if they get wet. Four, I have mixed feelings about using Teflon. Mine is already showing scratches with light use. Five, the bucket leaked and I had to reseal the seam. I think I've had enough bells and whistles and am returning to my old stainless cook set.

Questions & Answers

Can you use this with a larger car camping stove like a camp chef Everest 

Asked by: Justquestion
Yes, although this cookset nests to become compact for backpacking, you can just as easily use it to cook on a two-burner, camping stove.

What are some of the differences with this set up and the Pinniacle Camper Cookset?

Asked by: hoff
The Bugaboo uses a basic Teflon coated aluminum. The Pinnacle uses a Teflon-coated hard-anodized aluminum which distributes heat more evenly for efficient cooking; Teflon® Radiance technology offers supreme scratch resistance.

I just purchased the bugaboo base camper large set. Planning to use on a 25' cruising powerboat. Info on lids says "Do not use lid when frying". Can it be for making popcorn with a small amount of canola oil?

Asked by: Trifid86
The lids are not intended for use with any hot oil or grease and we do not recommend using the lid when frying.
