  1. I bought this item almost as a joke because it was so cheep and so lightweight that I thought it would be junk. I figured that even if it was useless I wouldn’t feel bad about throwing it out because of the price. What I found was that this little set actually works very well. I was impressed with the weight and it cooks a great steak and cleans easily. It packs up pretty small too.

    My only two concerns with this product was that

    1. Because the frying pan is two pieces and aluminum the handle tends to bend with too much weight. Long term I think bending will greatly weaken the handle.

    2. The handle of the frying pan can get a little hot if left on the heat for more than a few minutes. Still easily handled with a towel or shirt sleeve.

    These are the prices you pay for the very light weight and cheep price. All in all though, a great bargain that really works.

  2. I wanted a very light, easy to carry frying pan. Anything that came with it was extra. This unit fit that bill. All 4 pieces weigh less than half a pound, but feel quite sturdy. NOT non-stick, but I didn’t expect that. Just fry the bacon first! 😉

  3. If you’re just starting out backpacking then this is the mess kit for you. It’s practically identical to the kits Boy Scouts of America have been using for decades. There are a hundred different kits that you can find that will be made of stronger, lighter, non-stick material, but if you’re only using if a few times a year, who needs all that?

    Really, for the price, this product is a great buy. If you’re looking for something reliable and functional for long periods of time… look elsewhere. This is your standard “boy scout” standard issue mess kit. Coleman has never let me down over the years, and I still stand by that statement. Coleman offers a good backup-quality mess kit for a price not ever worth haggling over. [buy it]

  5. This is a cheap mess kit for one.

    It is lightweight. Not for a hardcore camper, but good for the person who goes 1 to 2 times a year. Compact. I agree with what others said about the pot that boils, but if you make the right contraption out in the wild, you can make ANYTHING work for you.
