Expert Reviews

What reviewers liked

The stove and fuel can easily fit inside and the large soup can slides right over the exterior. The two insulated cups make it so you can easily eat your food while it is still hot. The lid reduces cooking time, but it can also be used as a strainer. The handle folds away nicely and does not get hot.

There are drain holes in the lid
I really like this setup. It gives you far more options for outdoor cooking without having to worry about carrying all the separate components and you can be far more creative than just eating rehydrated meals. It is also fine to use on a campfire which is a big positive.
It has an extendable and foldable handle for ease of use and storage.

What reviewers didn't like

I got this product about two weeks ago. It is made in China, which is not ideal for me, but it is good, still good quality and works fine on a grill or over a fire, but be aware if the flames are reaching the side it does discolour the stainless steel. Also if you are cooking on a fire soot does build, but can be washed off.
This is too heavy for human-powered adventures. The large size, stainless construction, and three-layer frying pan construction add up to a weighty package.
​If you are travelling solo, maybe you can fell Sanley camping cookware set is a little heavy for you to carry with both cups. But you can leave them if you find it bulky.
As much as the cups seem heavier than the titanium varieties, they are insulated and they don’t scorch your lips when taking that hot coffee.
On the heavier side for a cook set, weighing 13.8 ounces in all
Not recommended for serious backpackers
The main reason why I don’t rate this higher as a backpacking setup is that it’s too heavy. If you are engaging in car camping, this is ideal, but for hiking, this is not perfect.
The aesthetics of the kit may not appeal to some people, e.g. the plastic cup.
