camp-cookThe best cookware kits are the kind in which the different pieces nest inside one another—cups are inside a small pot, which is inside a medium/large pot, which is on top of the frying pan. The entire kit is then stored in a fishnet style bag with a drawstring. The lighter the better—titanium is best, but stainless steel will do. The frying pan should be non-stick and the handle should either be separate—such as a gripper—or fold into the pan.

TIP: to save fuel while cooking, use a windscreen and a pot cozy. And keep the lid on the pot—no peeking.
