Great set for travel and backpacking.

I got the set on sale for $50 after an additional discount on a clearance priced item. In short, I love them.

I have read a few reviews where people complain about hotspots or the non-stick coating. Titanium is not cast iron, stainless steel or aluminum (anodized or not).

They are large enough that you'd want to pack other items inside them to save space.
