Functional, light. Great to find a kit with a metal cup that can be put on the fire to heat up. even expensive kits have plastic or plastic insulated cups that are less functional. pan/lid is shaped so they can be plates or bowls as well.
A reviewer said it warped with heat, they must've had way more heat than needed. I had one like this since a Scout 20+ years ago. I've melted lead in the cup. Seems as light as titanitum.
You can pay a lot more but won't get much lighter and probaly not as functional.
For $16 shipped, this is a great product. I haven't had it over an open fire yet but it does fine on my esbit stove. You do have to be careful cleaning it, as steel wool scratches it. Overall, a great one person kit. The biggest downfall in my opinion is the size of the pot. filled to the brim, it holds two cups, which is why i wouldn't recommend this for more than one person. Also, there is room inside to fit some hot chocolate, oatmeal, etc. Overall, a great cookset.
Can melt on blazing fire.I am gonna use a stainless pet dish for a pot It will have no lid but be light and clean with steel wool. I will buy a stainless mug that can go on stove also. Titanium to expensive and possibly to toxic to drink whiskey out of.

you get what you pay for
the aluminum makes for a good plate and bowl, but the cup gets too hot with hot beverages and the fry pan is so thin that it warps under heat. any heat needed to cook something, is too much heat. just buy a plate, bowl, cup set instead of this.
