What’s Most Important to You in Backpacking Cookware?
The PRICE of a backpacking cookset can vary depending on if you need both a stove and a pot, or if you already have some items that you like. If you need both a stove and a pot, it might be cheaper to buy them as a bundle. If you already have some items that you like, you might want to buy them individually to build a customized cookset.
If you’re going to be hiking a lot or doing a lot of big changes in elevation, it’s important to have cookware that is lightweight and compact. A pot with a lid, a cup, and a spoon is all you need. Look for cookware that nests together in a compact package so that it can fit a stove, lighter, and a small fuel canister inside.
Cooking & Cleaning
This cookware is great because it doesn’t stick and it’s very durable. You have to be careful not to use metal utensils on it. The pot also has a wide base, which makes it easy to scramble an egg and a long handle that makes it safe to use. The pot is also perfect for boiling enough water for coffee and oatmeal for a hearty breakfast. Another great feature when cooking; this pot has a great handle. You don’t need to be strong to move it, and it’s also heat-resistant. Super easy to clean and dishwasher safe.
