User Review: GSI Pinnacle Dualist Cookset
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: ~ $50 US
Compact, convenient, lightweight option for backpackers. A great product with a minor flaw...
- Handle melts if no cautious
- Included sporks are useless.
My girlfriend and I purchased this product for a 6-day hike on the Northville-Placid Trail in NY (from Long Lake to Lake Placid....HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!). Throughout the journey this little pot met and exceeded all our expectations.
The capacity of this pot is perfect for two hungry hikers. This pot's non-stick surface worked well and clean up was a breeze. As for cooking performance, as a hobby/serious chef I can say that I didn't notice any hot spots from any poor design by the manufacturer.
The sporks, on the other hand, are terrible. They are so terrible in fact, that I believe they should have been left out of the package all together, because somewhere someone will rely on these sporks and will end up eating with their fingers. The bowls were nice, and the included neoprene cover made handling my morning cup 'o' mud a painless experience. We didn't really use the sink cover, but the couple times we did it worked just as it should have.
Overall, I'd say this system is an excellent product, and well worth the $40-60 (US).
