User Review: GSI Halulite Ketalist Cookset
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: ~$40
Great kettle, light kit, not really a cookset unless you just need water boiled to rehydrate something.
- Great kettle
- Seems durable
- Plastic on handle melts if used over a fire
- Spoon tends to collect food in cracks
- Not much of a "cookset"
The GSI Ketalist works well as its core purpose: a kettle. The bowls are not remarkable but do their job as you would expect a bowl to. The collapsible spoon that in included did not impress me much. I found that food tended to collect where the handle and bowl joined. Not really a big deal for me as I already had a spoon that worked well for me, but something to note nonetheless.
Now, the kettle is great. I have used it for about a year now and have not been gentle with it. It transfers heat well, whether from a fire or stove. One thing to note about using it over a fire: the plastic coating melts. If you intend to use it primarily on a fire, I would recommend burning or scraping the plastic off first.
The kettle: 5/5
Cookset as a whole: 4/5
