Much can not be said of this rudimentary alpine set...The good: Unbreakable Not have any non-stick coating, not to worry about cleaning Lightweight, not the lightest on the market, but lightweight. The bad, but improvement: The handle could have another design that uses less material to make it lighter. Good!
While these may not be the lightest pair of pots around, they still hold their own against the competition. I agree with the previous reviewer who stated that the lack of a non-stick coating is a plus: every non-stick coating I have ever seen comes off over time even if you only use plastic utensils. For the sake of durability (not to mention that I'd prefer not to eat flakes of non-stick coating), I'd rather not have the coating in the first place. The included pot lifter works quite well: you don't really even have to squeeze it to lift the pots, and it holds them stably and securely.
This pot kit has gone with me on numerous outings, and has stood the test of time. I can honestly say that I have used it on almost every outing with the exceptions of a few that I wanted something smaller and lighter weight (see the MSR Titan Kettle). They are very well built and can take a scraping with anything. The absence of a non-stick coating is one of it's best features, as I find it hard to be without solid utensils all the time. The lid also acts as a make shift fry pan, making this an actual 3 piece set. Another one of my favorite features is the pot holder, definitely my favorite of all the separate clamp style. If you are looking for a bomb proof very versatile pot set, this is the one for you. If you also want it lightweight, check the MSR Titan series.
