K-Way 1 Person Cook Set

I went looking for something to boil water and cook in on my Campingaz stove, and chose the K-Way 1 Person Cook Set from Cape Union Mart.

The set consists of a lightweight pot and pan, each with foldaway handles. The pot has a capacity of 1 litre, and the pan flips over to double as a lid for the pot. Both have a non-stick coating which makes cooking and cleaning a pleasure. The pot has a pour lip and the pan is close-fitting enough to be used effectively as a lid.

It has a diameter of 110mm, a height of 140mm, and weighs only 273 g.

It would be nice if the coating on the handles was of a better quality material such as silicone as the plastic has melted over time and was in any case not heat-resistant (always remember to fold the handles out before using the set).

I have used the set to cook pasta for carbo-loading, oats for pre-race meals, and heated many, many litres of water for tea and coffee with great success.

UPDATE: the Campingaz stove has been retired and I now use this set with my MSR WhisperLite™ Stove. Some of the non-stick coating has rubbed off over time, but the set is still functional some 6 years later!
