I bought this cookset  to sit on my MSR Pocketrocket. It works wonderfully. Have not experienced any hot spot or burning with the pots.

Overall the best cookset I have owned!

The best that can be said for this stainless steel…

Rating: rated 2 of 5 stars
Price Paid: $35

The best that can be said for this stainless steel cookset is that it's inexpensive. The steel walls are very thin, so there are serious hotspot problems even with broad burner stoves. The lid is just a lid, not a frypan.

You can forget saute meals, frying or scrambling eggs, omelets, or pancakes. Anything that isn't buffered by plenty of water, and gets much above boiling temperature, makes for tough cleanup.

That being said...if your cooking needs are boiling/simmering, and if you stay on top of the process to prevent scorching and sticking, then this cookset can do the trick for minimal coin. If your backcountry cooking heads in more varied directions, you'll be back to buy the Blacklite or Duralite set.

There really isn't much to say. As normal MSR perfected this by both price and quality. Works well.
