The Best In Outdoor Cookware

Family camping, with all 4 kids, is one of our favorite things to do. It is so nice to have everyone running around, enjoying all that the outdoors has to offer.

The problem with this kind of camping mostly comes from the packing stage. With two adults, a 9 year old, an 11 year old, a 13 year old and a 16 year old, there is a lot to consider when readying for a trip. Between the food, drinks, plates, cups and pots and pans, it makes for a lot of figuring out.

Luckily, one of the above just became much easier. With the introduction on GSI Outdoor’s new Bugaboo line, we now have a complete set of pots and pans that can handle pretty much any of our campsite cooking needs. The Bugaboo Cookset LG is a lightweight, compact set of two pots, two pans (that double as lids for the pots,) two cutting boards and a removable handle that attaches to all four items.

We used the cookset on the last few trips that we went on and have cooked everything from steak and potatoes to soup, eggs, grilled cheese and stew. On every occasion, the food came out perfectly over the set’s even-heating cook surface… Although, we did have one of the best campsite chefs with us. One of the coolest things about the set is the DiamondBack Gripper. This handle is interchangeable so that when leaving a pot on the stove, you can remove the handle and then when your food is ready, clip it back on and not have to worry about hot handles or the need for pot holders.

Weighing under 3 pounds combined, the whole set is stackable which allows it to fit snugly into the accompanying mesh bag. This set is all that we have to pack for cookware on any of our trips. In addition, the set is made of lightweight, non-stick coated aluminum and comes in a stylish blue exterior color.

GSI Outdoors, started in Southern California in 1985, has an impressive line of cookware and dining products for just about any outdoor activity.

The set stows in a compact mesh bag measuring 10.75” x 10.75” x 5.75” The set includes a; 2.5 qt. pot, 4 qt pot, 2 dual-use frying pans/lids, 2 cutting boards and a diamondback Griper (removable handle)

Available for $64.95 at I would highly recommend this as an upgrade to your camp set.
