Gear Review: Primus Campfire Cookset

primus campfire cookset

I just upgraded my cookware and I found this wonderful looking set at REI. I had been using some MSR pots that were anodized aluminum but one of them had a non-stick coating. Wary of toxic chemicals, I opted for good old stainless steel.

The Primus Campfire Cookset comes in two sizes, this one is the large. It comes with an 8 inch frying pan, a 1.8 liter pot, and a 3 liter pot. The pots also come with lids with holes to drain liquid. The large lid’s handle can be hung over a campfire. The handles stay cool and the lids come with a sewn on piece of leather to make handling lids easier. The quality is very good and comes in a beautiful mirror finish, 18/8 stainless steel.

The large set would comfortably feed about three, anymore and there better be more pots and pans to choose from. The small set would probably suit a backpacker’s needs, although being stainless steel, it would add weight. All of the pieces fit nicely on a two-burner Coleman stove.

The Primus Campfire Cookset is a welcome addition to my camp kitchen. It’s durable, and nice to look at. This set is so nice, it could have gotten Julia Childs out in the woods.
