I bought this set for going on small walks and camping trips. I needed something that was small enough to fit in a Osprey kestrel 38 backpack without pushing the sides out and taking up to much room and this product fits my needs perfectly. Iv already used this set on a 4 day camping trip and a small walk paired with the Whisper universal and this pot has been brilliant. Boiling water is fine obviously, iv cooked curry, pasta the list goes on but nothing has stuck or left a mark on the inside which has made cleaning so quick and easy. Something that might be useful for some people, I didn't find my self needing the cups, i took those out and put an MSR titanium kettle inside. (Im pretty sure the Msr titanium cup also fits inside the kettle) I have tried the cups on a walk and they again work great. I wouldn't of taken them out if i didn't use the msr kettle as my cup. That's been my experience with this set anyway. Great product.
