My use case: backpacking, typically 1-2 night trips. I will carry the small pot by itself for solo trips and the medium pot + pan for couples and group trips. Will take everything on car camping trips.
(+) Wide and short for better cooking and distribution of heat. Narrow and tall is better for strictly boiling water, wide and short better if you want to cook and simmer at all.
(+) Strainer lid, which took me by surprise. Nice feature.
(+) Great build quality.
(+) Compact and light enough to take into the field.
(+) The little extras (bowls, spatula, and sponge) that come with it are pretty well made and not just little throw-ins.
(+) Price is unbeatable. I got a small cookset at a similar pricepoint from a company called MalloMe on Amazon and the quality difference between this and that is staggering-- and I think the MalloMe set is actually a pretty decent deal.
(-) My biggest issue: the little handles on top of the lids are poorly designed. They're small and positioned very close to the metal lid, so when the lid heats up moving the handle can be tricky. A bigger handle piece would have solved this issue. I'll need to make sure they're standing up before I start cooking, as moving them while heated up will require probably busting out my knife to lift it.
(-) Wide and short makes nesting a gas canister inside tough. The 1L pot is not big enough to house a 8 oz canister, the 1.5L pot is JUST tall enough if you remove the cap, too wide resulting in an awkward space to fill out (maybe a camp towel).
(-) The included stuff sack will almost certainly fall apart in the field. Wish they'd gone with a solid sack.
(-) It's lightweight enough for me, but still pretty heavy by backpacking standards.
It's not as well designed as something by GSI or another camp specialist, but it's an incredible value and a great first iteration. This will definitely be replacing my other set as my main go to, and I'm planning on buying the boilers for colder trips.
