    I had to share this. We have the GSI Bugaboo Camper Cooking System and it is by far the best camping product I have purchased in years. It is around $100. It is compact and unbelievably functional. They thought of everything. The only thing it doesn't have is your utensils. Non-stick. My 5yr old and I went camping this weekend and made spaghetti for dinner and sausage, eggs and toast for breakfast. The cups didn't hurt his had with hot chocolate in it. I normally don't get so passionate about a product but it really impressed me.

    Looks like a very nice set. You will have to let us know how it holds up after a few uses.

    Re: GSI Outdoors Bugaboo CAmper Cooking System

    While that is a pretty good cook set, they have 2 weak spots/points. I have an older set of the Bugaboos, before they came out with the 'Cooking System'.
    The interior is coated and can easily be damaged with use of anything metal, leading to eventual flaking off of the coating and because they are made of ordinary aluminium, they are fairly easily deformed by cramming them into a too small packing spot on your bike, or by shifting weight in a tightly packed trailer.
    They could overcome both these weaknesses by making the pots out of hard anodized aluminium.

    If you are aware of both these weaknesses and can live with that, they are a pretty good set of pots as long as you can keep them protected, only use plastic/wood utensils and carefully protect the insides by carefully wrapping any other pot you place inside for packing, so it doesn't rub/scratch the inside finish

    I have the same set in their pinnacle line witch addresses both of the points from Dustys post. I really like mine and they have held up very well.

    With the new system, they have fixed some of those problems. They have a thicker, textured bottom, similar to your pots and pans at home. Also, the plastic plates rest in the bottom of the large pot with the smaller pot on top. I do agree that any nonstick coating is susceptible to metal utensils. That is aliviated with nylon or silicone utensils, which I have packed with it for just that purpose. Good points to watch out for. Thanks for sharing.

    It isn't the bottoms that deform, it's the actual pot/shape that can get bent out of round making the lid(s) pretty well useless!


    I've been using a set of the GSI Hard Anodized Extreme Double Boiler for over 12 yrs(?) as my everyday pots and they are still in pretty good condition despite the abuse they've seen crammed into backpacks, saddle bags and trailers

    I just got this set. I really wanted the Pinnacle series, but wasn't ready to part with ~ $200. I found a Bugaboo locally for $50 that had never even been taken out of the package.

    Probably worth noting - I found a Pinnacle series for $70, but they were out of state and they weren't willing to ship (if any of you live anywhere near Bismark Arkansas and willing to do me a favor, give me a shout).
