    Want to go camping and be able to cook some small meals?

    Amazon says: Be Prepared for All Your Camping, Hiking or Backpacking Adventures and Equip Yourself with the #1 Camping Cookware Mess Kit, Outdoor Cooking Backpacking Gear & Camping Backpack and Hiking Picnic Set. (Yes, they love those endless titles.) I bought this kit just to see what it looked like in person and to make a video about it so you too could see if it lives up to its hype. Actually, I think the kit is very compact, and well made. I'm not sure you'll be making gourmet meals with it, but it's lightweight, packs into a small (included) nylon bag and might also be good just to have for emergencies. The company says the kit contains: FDA approved anodized aluminum pot and frying pan (non-stick surface) + one pot cover. Folding stainless steel spork, spoon, knife, and regular fork. 2 BPA Free bowls, Rice (or soup) ladle, loofah Sponge, carabiner to carry the kit, fire starter, and a mini-stove with Piezo ignition. Be sure to watch the video to see the size of these items, especially the stove, which is more like tiny, than mini. The complete kit was $24.99 when I bought mine late May 2018, and it was still that price on 6/8/18. Be aware, the exact same set is available for $34.99, so you don't want to pay an extra $10. Also there are cheaper versions on Amazon which do not include the stove, so you have option too.
