Along the line of comfort/vehicle based camper accessories the GSI Pinnacle Camper Cookware set is a great addition if you’re looking to upgrade your current set up. In this Halulite set you will find a 3L pot, 2L pot, Frying pan, 4 plates, 4 cups with sip lids, 4 bowls, a folding pot gripper, and a strainer lid for the pots and pan. The system nests within itself and fits nicely in the included carrying bag/welded sink.

The pots and pan are made of hard anodized aluminum and also boast a Teflon non stick coating. They all are lightweight but feel very durable and radiate heat evenly for a well dispersed cooking heat. Each pot has its own well fitting lid that features a silicone lip to not only form a nice seal to keep the heat in and save fuel by more efficient cooking but also it helps maintain the form of the lid by protecting the plastic from the metal sides of the pot and not deforming as it heats. A super nice feature of this is that the collapsable pot gripper that locks into place and holds the pots securely with out marring up the finish and can fold down on itself for more compactness.

Both the 2L and 3L pots come in handy for a wide variety of kitchen creations and I especially appreciated the tall sides for frying messy foods that would splatter all around my small van kitchen if I was stuck inside to cook in poor weather. The strainer lid makes draining broccoli, pasta, and such easy and it fits so well I did not have to worry about food working its way around the strainer as is common with so many other not so well fitting lids. The frying pan fits medium sized tortillas nicely as it will fit with a nice steak too!

The colorful plates, cups, and bowls are made of polypropylene and are made to last solid camp use and abuse. I will warn you that the pates will get scarred up fairly easily by using a sharp knife so beware of that or just use a cutting board for your cutting needs or use plastic cutlery. The four plates are durable enough as I mentioned before and the only real issue I had with this set was the small size of the plates. Yes, they fit nicely in the system, but man you can’t really get much food on them and if you’re a stickler for your food not touching like some of my friends, boy are you in pickle!

To round out this set are 4 nesting cups/bowls that are triangular shaped to allow them to fit well in the pots, and while I was leery of the triangular shape at first, when it came to scooping out my oatmeal it turns out the angle of each corner is perfect for a normal spoon and I could very easily get every last morsel of my gruel out with out much effort.

This cup/bowl set has two separate containers one is uninsulated and the other has an insulating sleeve one for food/one for beverages each cup/bowl set comes with its own lid with sipping/vent holes. Sad news is that these will not fit in my vehicle cup holder and reminds me of the old square peg round hole dilemma which means I simply pack another round cup for my vehicle borne travels. In addition, having a sip lid means the cups/bowls cannot be used to store leftovers or take cup of joe on a hike as it will quickly spill if you try and pack it away. On the upside an often over looked and under appreciated feature is found if you inspect the inside of the bowls you’ll see faint measuring lines on the inside which can make mixing ingredients easier, but come on you’re camping live a little and guess measurements!

What this all boils down to is that if you are in the hunt for a well designed, compact, complete cookset that will work for up to 4 people, or if you like to prepare multiple cooked items at once this set should be considered as it does a great job of addressing most needs and the sexting compactness of the set up really does alleviate potential storage space headaches so many car campers face.
