    Likes: Nice compact design with all items nesting in the largest 5.3L pot and lid. The 5.3L pot does not have non-stick coating like the 3.2L pot. Insulated mugs are decent size and work great for liquid meals (soups / stews) or hot beverages. They keep the content warm for a long time if you keep the lids on. Deep dishes are of 2 sizes so that they fit with the system. The pot handle for the 3.2L pot is made of metal / plastic and the 5.3L pot’s handles are metal (aluminum) with a plastic cover for insulation. The 3.2L pot handle is removable. That being said, I would not use these pots on a campfire unless you could really control the heat. Over all system worked well for our use.

    Dislikes: At $159 MSRP, these are pricey. Pots are thin (obviously for weight savings), so you have to keep that in mind when packing them (easy to dent and scratch). Also, I find that the 5.3L pot it too big for 4 people. In the future I’m considering leaving the 5.3L pot and lid behind and replacing it with a skillet. We used this on a few multi-day trips so far and they have held up well. Durability of the non-stick coating and pots are a concern, but if used properly (use wooden / non-scratch cooking utensils), should be OK. Lid for the 3.2 L pot’s handle gets smashed when assembled.
