I got the Guide version of the Blacklite so I could pick and choose which pots to take. It's heavy if you take them all. But the minimalist cookset shown above is perfect for a week. Heats fast and sticks to the stove with the ribbed bottom. 4 Ramens plus water will go into the 2.0 L. Only problem is they dent very easily, so be careful.

I've used this cookset for about a year and am very happy with it. The teflon coating makes everything easy to clean. It is also fairly light weight and durable for aluminum. The pots and pans are about the right size for cooking for 2 - 3 people at a time.

very light but I am afraid to scratch the non-stick coating as warned on the label.
Otherwise I find this cookset to be great for 2-3 people (maybe too big for 1 person.

I enjoy using my set too. Very practical and light weight. The only bad thing is I set my pot full of water on some coals to get a boil, which was not the smartest thing to do I guess. I know have heat scorches on the bottom of the one pot. Don't put your pot on hot coals, the aluminum is not strong enough.

I love the non stick but I found that its just to much to carry it all. I just need one pan so I bought a stainless pot. works great and I dont have to worrie about scraching it all up.
