The pot rusts easily
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this product about a year ago at the recommendation of a Gearhead while I was planning a backpacking trip and have done what I can to take good care of it. I rinse food/liquids out of the pots, bowls, and cups while I am on the trail and am quick to clean it by hand washing using gentle dish soap and a soft sponge so as not to scratch anything. I would also make sure it dried properly before packing it back up.
I have no complaints about the stove, bowls, or cups, though the sporks themselves are quite flimsy. If you are cooking anything on the thicker side, you'll likely want to use something other than these sporks to mix ingredients.
However, after returning from my most recent backpacking trip, I noticed that a significant amount of rust had built up on the bottom of the pot. I recognize that I have had this product for a little over a year now without issues, but I feel that it should have lasted much longer than this to be worth $100 purchase at full price.
