Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product for RV or tent Got this to use in my RV kitchen. The RV is small (25 ft) and not much more room than a pop up camper, meaning space is important. The fry pans and pots are great for cooking for two. Their strainer tops are great for pouring out water while saving the inside contents (IE pasta). When we are ready to roll again, just pack the parts back into the included stow bag, set into the cabinet and off you go. We also like the removable handle which folds when stowing. I would not suggest this for backpacking because to me it is a bit too big. However it holds up well to the gas heat and does not warp which I have had happen with cheaper utensils.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Cookset with a few flaws This was a great cook set. While car camping I was able to make everything from pasta to breakfast with eggs. All in all it was pretty good. There were two things I found disappointing. 1. the flip down handles on the pot - when you remember to flip them up they are great but when the pot (and handles) is hot it is really difficult to flip them up and they are so tight against the side of the pan that a potholder is too thick to flip them up. 2. I thought I read that the carry case was welded tight so it wouldn't leak and it could be used as a sink. This proved to be incorrect. Either I read wrong or the item had problems.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice large pots, some small design flaws Now that I have a family we tend do do more canoeing trips than backpacking trips. We decided with all the room we had we needed to upgrade from our lightweight backpacking pans to something bigger. What I like: 1. The lids have a nice strainer feature which prevents accidentally dumping your pasta out when you try and drain it. 2. I also like the cutting board which has a tiny lip to it which helps keep juicy items from dripping all over. 3. These are great pots for cooking larger meals in, yet still pretty lightweight. Unfortunately there's a couple of things that I don't like about these pots. 1. The large pot has these built in handles, which are easy to forget to flip up before you start cooking. They are spring loaded which is nice once they are up, but can make it difficult to open if the pot is precariously perched on your stove. 2. The locking handle seems like a good idea at first, but it takes a bit of jiggering to get it locked into the pot/fry pan. Which means if you are using a smaller camp stove (like a whisper lite or something) you need a pot holder to hold the pot while you put the pot holder on. The big pot holder doesn't have a connection for the locking potholder. Also if you have any other pots with you you will need to bring another potholder along since this potholder only works with these pots and pans. Fortunately the pots all have a rounded lip, so you can use any normal pot holder on them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Customer Service Ever Any product I've used from GSI is very high quality and they are always striving for better. The original pot lids were admittedly inferior. GSI will be the first to say that and they improved on the quality vastly with the latest model. My college uses this large set and I personally have a smaller set from them. I recently needed to replace the old lids and the GSI customer service sent them immediately and were amazing to talk to. The way a company deals with their customers says it all, I will be referring everyone I can to them from now on.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good enough but not great The GSI Base Camper set is light and compact. That's the good part. The bad part is that the nonstick surface isn't that nonstick and the detachable handle is more novelty then anything else. Spent 4 days camping and the weather was chilly to say the least. operating the handle with gloves on isn't easy but more importantly the plastic coating on the big pot handles can melt if you are not careful. I don't hate this set, but I don't love it either. Definitely some compromises here.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great family /group cook set! All comes in one neat, light weight package. Very easy to use, clean, and repack. Will buy another if this one ever wears out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great for car camping After miles of listening to clanging pots in my Vanagon camper, I replaced them with the Bugaboo Base Camper Cookset. It's perfect for 2-3 people, the pots and skillet heat quickly and evenly, and clean-up is easy. And, the stacking set is noise-free.

Will the Infinity 4-Person Compact Table Set nest into the Bugaboo Base Camper Cookset - Large? I see that you sell it as a set with the medium cookset, but not the large.   

Asked by: bewk
Yes, this will be able to nest with the Infinity 4-pack.
