Snow Peak Starter Kit
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $70
Used this for my entire thru-hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2012. Good stuff.
- All fits into the cup
- Piezo igniter was resilient
This is one of those items that everybody has a different opinion about. I saw huge kitchen sets with pots/pans, tiny homemade lightweight alcohol stoves, and some people who never carried anything like this and either ate cold food or cooked on a fire. Whatever your style, I personally loved this set.
What you see in the picture is what it comes with: a titanium spork, a cooking mug with a lid, and a Snow Peak stove with Piezo ignitor. All of these things plus a small fuel canister will fit inside of the cup and into a little baggie, which is awesome. It keeps everything together and compact, which is perfect.
The igniter worked great and lit just about every single time on the first attempt. The cup was a good size, and I even got to the point where I was cooking two Ramens for dinner in it like it was a science. I like how you are able to control the flame, because occasionally I would simply need to simmer my food. After six months of heavy daily use, one of the legs started to get wobbly, but seriously that's just being nit picky.
All in all it held up wonderfully on a huge hike, and I would definitely recommend it.

Snow Peak Starter Kit - Giga Auto Power Stove, Trek 700, and Spork
The cleverly designed Snow Peak Starter kit optimizes your trail cooking experience and saves both weight and space in your pack! Kit features the small, ultralight Giga Power stove with Piezo ignition, Snow Peak titanium spork and a Trek 700 titanium pot with lid and fold-out handle. All parts fit inside the pot for tidy, compact storage; the stove (out of its case) fits above a Snow Peak 110g fuel canister (sold separately). Plus, the handle of the spork fits through the lid drain hole; the ladle portion rests above the lid and helps hold in place a second canister of fuel. Small, convenient lid hole lets you safely drain hot water after boiling noodles for your evening meal. Opposite the hole sits a clasp designed to help secure that second canister of fuel in conjunction with the spork. Lightweight spork is a combination spoon and fork in 1 versatile utensil. Titanium pot and spork are incredibly lightweight; rugged titanium also conducts heat well for cooking. Tiny, featherweight stove is barely noticeable in your pack; built-in Piezo igniter sends out an electric spark that starts the flame once the gas is turned on. No pumping or priming, collapsible stove screws onto isobutane cartridges, sold separately. Performs well in cold temperatures and can be reduced to a true simmer for actual cooking, not just boiling water for freeze-dried foods. Fold-out wires provide support for most sizes of cooking pots; stable stove base allows cooking on varied surfaces. Stove comes in a plastic case for easy packing; size specifications are based on storage case. Total weight of the kit is 9.1 oz.; stove weighs 3.6 oz., stove case weighs 0.6 oz. cup weighs 3.2 oz., lid weighs 1.2 oz., spork weighs 0.4 oz. and storage bag weighs 0.1 oz. Fuel canisters are not included with the kit but are sold separately.
