I got this specifically because it was made in the USA. There are more expensive stoves made in China, not to mention the few expensive American-made ones, and this model is hard to find. But we already had a Coleman single burner that sat atop a propane bottle and were tired of it trying to tip over. I like the compact size, being just big enough for one full pan and a smaller item (kettle, etc.). Its one drawback is the exposure to wind. The lid helps, but there are no side guards, and the standoffs that support the cookware are pretty tall. Since those come off (and you have to install them yourself on first assembly), I'm considering taking a hacksaw to at least one burner's set, to help with crosswind and heat transfer. But on its first camping trip, it served nicely and replaced the 2 separate burners we had been using.
Really nice & compact set of cookware. I really like the tea kettle. Even as hot as it is I like my morning tea. This set is perfect for the wife & me to cook our food. Next week we will be going on our first camping trip together. Other than the tea kettle which I have already tried, we will be using the rest of the set. I will get back & tell how it went. Went on trip with the wife. At first she was not to happy that i bough this set. After using them she said that these were the best set to take on trip, small, easy to use, & very easy to clean.
I retired from the national guard in 2011 & from my civilian job this year. I haven't been to the field, camping, sense I left the guard. The wife & me are going to be camping a lot now & this Cookware Mess Kit will be part of my pack because, for one thing, it doesn't take up a lot of room in my pack. I made some tea in one of the cups today & it did just fine. I can't get over how light this set is after lugging around my mess kit in the military all though years. I like this set a lot.
