MalloMe Camping Cookware Review
The MalloMe Camping Cookware Set is an affordable, small cooking set that comes with almost everything a solo camper would need. A couple of hikers could use it with the addition of a few extra items. This cook set is best for light-packing hikers who cook simple meals in camp.
What’s Included In The MelloMe Cook Set
The kit comes with a Non-stick pot with a cover, a pan, a plate, a bowl, a mug, and all the utensils you need. Plus, it all packs up neatly into one convenient carrying case. So next time you’re heading out into the wilderness, pack the Camping Cooking Set. It could just be the difference between a good meal and going hungry.
Test Criteria and Results of the Cookware
The Backpack Camping Pot and Pans Set is not the best cooking pot but not the worst. It is made of anodized aluminum, which is more “non-stick” than the MSR Alpine 2 Pot Set’s bare metal and Snow Peak Titanium, but it does not cook or clean up nearly as nicely as the Teflon coated products from GSI and the ceramic treated.
Weight & Packability:
The MalloMe is a good backpacking set because it is lightweight and compact. The entire set, including all the accessories, fits into a bag just the right size. There is additional room for a small stove and lighter. If you omit some of the less useful accouterments, one can also fit a fuel canister inside the main pot. The one packability demerit of the MalloMe is regarding rattle noise. The components knock against one another no matter how you pack them.
The Portable Camping Stove and Backpacking Stove Compatible set is made from hard-anodized aluminum, which is not as strong as stainless steel or titanium but is strong enough to resist scratches and dents and warping from heat. The set is also compact, which helps to protect the pots and pans from getting dented.
Easy Cleaning & Storage:
This 10-piece mess kit is easy to clean and store. It collapses into a small bundle, so it’s easy to control and store. The pieces are small, but they all fit together nicely for storage.

How many liters is the main pot?
The big pot has a 1-liter capacity, but it is better to use 900ml when boiling water. There are graduation lines on the pot that show 250 ml, 500 ml, and 750 ml.
Is there a way to hang these over a fire like GSI Stainless Troop Cookset?
You can use this over a campfire, but, there is a way to hang these over a fire.
If you are going camping and might need a pot or pan, it is a good idea to bring one just in case. This cookware is non-stick and lightweight. The handle is made of plastic, so be careful not to burn it. Also, this is good for people who cook uncomplicated meals while hiking and who travel alone. The Camping Cookware Mess Kit is a good choice for solo, but larger groups, there are better options .
