GSI Halulite Ketalist Cookset
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $35.00
Best kettle for the money. Good capacity and accessories.
- None so far
Took this on a 2 day hike to try it out, and it was very handy. I just set it on a campfire and had hot water in minutes. You could even cook in this in a pinch. Comes with a bowl, a cup with heat sleeve and a telescoping spork. These all nest inside with room for an alcohol popcan stove. I have the halulite set and this gives me an extra set of bowls. I have seen complaints about the sporks breaking, but I really like them.

Great little cookset for those who are NOT backwoods gourmets.
- Light weight
- Handle is so much better than usual systems
- Really only good for heating water
- Spork is useless
I only cook freeze-dried meals when hiking and backpacking. The Ketalist is perfect for me as a solo hiker then. Packs small, heats water quickly. the handle that reaches over the top and the pour-spout are perfect for someone, like me, who simply and only heats water for tea and freeze-dried meals. if you're expecting more, you haven't done your research.
The nesting cups are pretty basic; i tend not to use them, often don't even pack them. and the included extendable spork is flimsy, small, and unreliable. the kettle is the only reason i bought this, and i couldn't be happier with it.

The Ketalist cookset is perfect for freezerbag or freezedried cooking. The cookset is a just a tea kettle with a nesting bowl/cup and telescoping spork combo.
I used this kit on a recent trip into the Mendocino National Forest instead of my usual SnowPeak pot/frying pan kit. When most of your cooking is boiling water for freezerbag cooking or
re- hydrating freeze dried meals a tea kettle is the way to go.
The bowl works well as a measuring cup and for eating out of as well, the cup has an insulated removable cozy and a sippy cup lid that snaps firmly into place and works well for shake mixing dehydrated milk or any beverage of choice. The lid on the kettle sits loosely on top so you do need to hold it in place while pouring, some people take issue with this but it really was no big deal for me. I cannot comment on the spork because I didn't take it.
Any tea kettle simplifies pouring scalding water into a container versus a pot but the ergonomics of the handle and pot kept the heat away from my hands and was much appreciated.
This set packs easily in the outer pockets of my pack and will probably become my cookset of choice when I need a lightweight kit.
