Anyone check out one of these in person yet? - LINK (http://www.shopstanley-pmi.com/detail/TCL+10-01290-001) - Looks like it could be a nice two-person brewkit.

I watched a YouTube review showing that it is large enough in diameter to stow a 110g cartridge...which means it may nest over a 1L Nalgene bottle.

It seems a little odd, but apparently Walgreens is selling them online and "in-store" - LINK (http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/stanley-adventure-series-camp-cook-and-cup-set/ID=prod6068373-product)

Not that set specifically, but I have a few recent production Stanley items - double wall mugs and a thermos - and they are well made.

I'm off to Walgreens later today... I'll have a look and let you know if they fit the 1 liter bottle.

Just realized the the folding handle setup would get in the way unless it was easily detachable.

That looks pretty cool, though I need another cook kit or nesting mug like I need more knives. Oh wait, I just ordered another one of those too :rolleyes:

NO! I will not go to Walgreens tomorrow to buy this set just to see if it will fit that Stanley ss water bottle that I saw at BiMart the other day:

No! Uhhh no...uhhh...

But it's so shiney...

I went to several Walgreens and didn't find any locally...ended up ordering one.

I think it is well made, the cups that come with it are thick walled and insulated. A water bottle will not fit inside...but it will nest in a GSI or Spacesaver cup. I can get a small cartridge inside along with my Gigapower stove (without the carrying case) with some room to spare.

It will also nest with a coffee can stove setup...something along the lines of the Swiss Volcano or the Jim Wood Fire Bucket system.

Spork: I thought I spent a lot of time cruising these forums, but "You the MAN !!" :dblthumb:Great find, this (especially at the price), and the size is right on for solo & duo trips... a bit of a disappointment that my SS water bottles won't fit, but, as you point out, a full set of stove and Tea Time accoutrements will fit inside with a little room to spare... I also like the cups :27::27: since for sixty years, hot tea from SS has never been satisfactory...

Keep up the good work, buddy !

How well does the lid close on the pot? Enough that it won't pop off through casual bouncing?

Hmmm second time checking this out very tempting. Ya know if it rattles why not just stretch a couple of heavy duty rubber bands over it?not to mention then you could store some stuff inside the pot I'm sure

Spork
07-22-2011, 06:08 PM
Yeah, the rattle is not a big issue. I will probably sew up a fitted stuff sack for it...just tall enough to hold the lid down when the drawstring is pulled up.

does anyone know if its the same size as a hieneken pot??? will it fit inside one of those quart size ziploc canisters like a hiene pot does??

Spork, by chance will that lid fit your newer Oilicamp mugs?

Spork

I'll check it out for you when I get home Skab.

grizz
07-26-2011, 02:22 PM
spork, if you dont mind, can you let me know if its similar in size to a hieneken can pot?

Spork
07-26-2011, 04:24 PM
The lid fits the Olicamp Mug pretty well Skab. I also tried it out on the cups I have...it will not fit the Olicamp cups...and out of three GSI Glacier cups, it will fit only the newest one. The mug will nest nicely too...the top of the rim stops right at the step on the Stanley.

http://bushcraftusa.com/gallery/files/9/2/5/6/stanley_kit02.jpg

The Heine can is a little smaller in diamerter grizz. I am comparing the band on the Heine with the lower portion of the Stanley.

I don't know if it has been mentioned around here before...

This Bunn lid assembly supposedly works as a lid for the GSI Glacier cup - Part #02564.0000 (http://www.cw-usa.com/parts-bunn-commercial-lid-assembly.html)

I haven't tried it myself and don't know how close the fit is.

For lid to seal the GSI cup buy a 10oz can of coffee, the plastic lid should fit tight enough to seal the cup. For a drinking lid get a Jet boil stove lid, it fits the cup perfectly.

I bought one of these Coleman sets a while back and I really like it.
http://i394.photobucket.com/albums/pp23/silverlion7473/colemancook.jpg

I fry eggs and bacon, bannock and tiny pancakes in it. I've heard of some complaints of sticking in a few reviews and I just gotta say, a bit of bacon grease or a few drops of olive oil works wonders. BTW, I use this set with my DIY alky stoves.

I know its been mentioned in other threads but I was gifted a Nalgene SS Guyot bottle and I'm pretty excited that it nest in the Stanley cup. I use the Stanley all the time now it seems like a complete package.
Anyways went ahead and took some pics in case non where out there..

I got one. Wish a nalgene fit in it. The plastic lid handle melts pretty easily (duh) found that out the hard way this weekend.
Did just get a couple of the Stanley 32 oz multi-use bottle cup things

http://www.shopstanley-pmi.com/product/7215

Haven't tried it yet, but for $8.88 at wally world it looks like a decent replacement for the guyots that you cannot get anymore.
Hope I get some time to play with it this weekend.

I know I'm going to break down and buy one anyway, but I'll go ahead and ask.

Has anyone bothered to weigh the Stanley set-up yet? I'm wondering how it compares to my MSR 775 ml Stowaway pot. They're both stainless steel, locking lids, long handles, approximately the same capacity, etc. I can't seem to find the weight online or in any of these posts.

I just weighed mine. 13.6 oz with cups, 7.7 oz no cups but with lid. Pretty cool. Definitely good for my purpose of bicycle and motorcycle camping.

I starting to really dig this thing. The lid makes poring easy the handle doesn't get hot and the cup cools quickly and it really fits well in my set up. Max 5x12 Gsi cup on bottom Stanley inside Gsi with one green cup in the Stanley the my nelgene fits inside the Stanley.

I knocked the pin the holds the plastic tab on the lid out and replaced the tab with a split ring. (key ring)
Probably nothing wrong with the tab, but i can poke a stick through the ring to lift it.

After all of the talk about these I joined the club today. I went by my local Target and they had them for $12.99 each, so I bought 2 of them. I usually have at least 2 people or more going camping with me and one of these things are small for 2 people. I think I'm going to leave the cups at home though, we have a few GSI SS mugs and those will be more versatile than the plastic cups. Thanks for all of the info about these things.

So I broke down and bought one today. Target - $12.99.

I can see how they would be useful, I just didn't think I really needed them. But then again they might be better to eat out of than what I've got, I don't know, there still pretty small I think. I'm going to keep them, I just don't know what I'd use them for in the bush because I have other stuff to use.

it works fine. There are a few other video's out there with people who have used it on fire. I have not tried it yet but it is the same steel as the cookset basically. I haven't tried it yet. Maybe this weekend.

I bought one of these yesterday at Target for $12.99. I had to get it out in the fire right away to try it out. The plastic tab on the lid didn't last long. I replaced it last night with a key ring.

It worked well on my alcohol stove too. The handle makes it easy to poor from.

I just bought one at Target during my lunch hour today. It lists for $14.99 there, but was selling for $12.99. The warning says not to have the flames go above the bottom of the container. I guess that's so the plastic lid doesn't catch fire. I'll probably replace mine with a key ring, as well.

Seems like a good price for only $13 plus tax.

I used mine several times this past weekend. The plastic bit survived, but I was cooking mostly over coals or low flames in a big fire pit.

I like the cups, although I took one out to allow for more space to pack snacks/tea/etc.

I bought one of these yesterday at Target for $12.99. I had to get it out in the fire right away to try it out. The plastic tab on the lid didn't last long. I replaced it last night with a key ring.

Just FYI, bought one from target with the tab on the lid busted off. Looks like the spot welds were poorly done, didn't matter to me so I purchased it with a discount from the sale price. I love it so far and the cups are great. So if the lid matters to you and your looking to buy one check the spot welds.

Just picked one up myself. Going to replace the plastic tab before I try it out. Have a campout in a couple weeks, so I'll break it in on the stove and fire it in a couple weeks.

I'm pretty excited over it. I need to fab a ring for it so it will set stable on my twig burner. Should be fun.

Saw them at Target the other day... for $12.99 I may pick one up just because. With the quality of Stanley, even if I don't use it now, it'll be food to go years from now. My thermos still gets used after 15the years of duck hunting and in the field.

I think it is well made, the cups that come with it are thick walled and insulated. A water bottle will not fit inside...but it will nest in a GSI or Spacesaver cup. I can get a small cartridge inside along with my Gigapower stove (without the carrying case) with some room to spare.

Quick question, as shown in another photo the nalgena with the tapered sides fit into the Stanley cook cup, but will the 38oz straight sided one? and another question, the handle, is it possible to take off? can you pinch them together to take it off the cup, or is it pressed to make sure it wont? Thanks JR

Anyone check out one of these in person yet? - LINK (http://www.shopstanley-pmi.com/detail/TCL+10-01290-001) - Looks like it could be a nice two-person brewkit.

I watched a YouTube review showing that it is large enough in diameter to stow a 110g cartridge...which means it may nest over a 1L Nalgene bottle.

It seems a little odd, but apparently Walgreens is selling them online and "in-store" - LINK (http://www.walgreens.com/store/c/stanley-adventure-series-camp-cook-and-cup-set/ID=prod6068373-product)

Checked the last two days and Target has them for $14.95 while Dick's Sporting Goods has them for $24.95. I'm passing since they won't fit my 38 oz. Guyot. I got an MSR Military Marine Cup instead and will use something else for cooking.

Check different stores. My local Target store does not stock these but I found some last week at an out-of-town Target for $14.95 and grabbed one.

I was sort of surprised to find out that a regular plastic 32 oz. Nalgene does not nest inside the pot. But another bottle I like to use - a PowerAde 32 oz. bottle - does fit, though it is snug.

Also, somebody asked about removing the handle. It does come off pretty easy: With the handle deployed, squeeze the arms tight together at the pivot and twist one side downward to remove from the pivot holes. :21:

when heating on an alcohol burner, they do have a slower boil time, but hanging over a fire, or sat in a fire, the point of heat isn't only the bottom. they work rather nicely.

I have that set and use it on every outing. It's lightweight and you can break the kit down to fit your needs. It has a nice lid which you can use as a strainer and a good solid folding handle. I paid $ 9.00 for mine on clearence. Great kit for the price. The cups are heavy duty and you don't need a cozy. I did make a cozy for the cook pot. It's a handy kit and it will sever you well. You can't beat the price.

In addition to that, its stainless steel, and it gives a nice even heat and holds some of it in. Aluminium transmits the heat faster to the water. If you're used to aluminium pots it would seem slow.

I just picked one of these sets up and the Camelbak 1L (Older version) bottles with the straw/valve fit into the pot nicely.
And taking the handle off to stow it separately isn't hard but I need to look into how I want to carry it and in what kind of case or bag.
Not a bad little set for the cost.

I recon if you did the leather tab with my trick you could keep the tab sticking up through the top of the split ring and the bottom on the lid so it should be easy to grab...

Here's the latest incarnation of my Stanley kit...

I found some cheap 11cm stainless mugs at a hole-in-the-wall Dollar store a while back. Most of them were shelf-damaged with dents and had poorly spot-welded handles, but I managed to sort out a few that were good.

I recently discovered that my GSI cup would nest inside, so I turned one into twig stove today. I’ve made a number of attempts at a stove stand for the Stanley and this has turned out to be the best so far. I was having difficulty getting the Stanley to a boil in a reasonable amount of time…something in the 12-13 minute range with previous set-ups.

Using an Esbit alcohol burner, it got 20 oz to a hard rolling boil in 7:14 on the first test run.

You are gonna like it. Scott and I were both using that kit during our trip out. Interestingly I didn't even use the Ozark cup as I found it redundant and myself lazy to clean another cup.

I thought those green cups were going to be useless, but I ended up using them a lot.

Now we need to modify them so we can tell them apart.

Yeah It is a nice little kit. I had seen this thread on here last week and was looking to buy one of the 18 oz cups. I hadn't really given the mess kit much thought. Then when I saw the one that you guys had last weekend, I had to have one. (Sorry, I forgot to mention that before.):34: The plastic cups will probably stay at home most of the time, so I can utilize the inside for storage. Up till now, most of my pots (other than the old coffee pot) have been D.I.Y. billy cans. It's nice to have something so compact, yet useful. It will likely be used along side the USGI mess kit quite a bit. Between the two, you have everything you could need for a couple of people. I'll carry one in my pack, and Amanda can carry the other.

P.S. Don't worry, you will still see the Billy cans at bigger outings.:4:

I wound up with two because... well... $14.99. In a 12x5 Maxped bottle holder, I have a dedicated hot-chocolate rig for hiking with the kids in winter. It already had the Stanley outdoor thermos; now it's got four Stanley cups to match.

Someone made a good point about the cook-set lid fitting the Ozark Trails mug. You can heat up enough water for a dehydrated meal or you can just heat up a drink in the mug. Either way, you have a lid that fits.

got mine today and built a hobo stove for it outa a little 10 oz coffee can (volcano stove style), boiled 24 ox of water in 15 minutes on a couple of handfulls of wood chips and shavings from where I've been trying to teach myself to whittle. I think one of my 46 ox juice cans with their slightly larger diameter may make a better hobo for the kit and will try that tommorow. I do think the plastic cups are useless as I just donna like putting hot food in plastic. the real upside I see here is the 24 oz capacity matches my stanely food jug, so I can get a bean and rice mix to a boil in this pour it in the food jug and an hour or two later have a hearty warm meal with pretty minimal kit size I think this thing a hobo stove sized to it and my 6 inch cast iron might make an ideal cookset when I am by myself. The combination of a boiler and thermos bottle gives the ability to take foods that take longer to cook than ramen and freeze dried stuff and the 24 oz size is much closer to what I eat in a meal than the more common 16 oz solo pots.
Only thing this realy is lacking is a bail but I think I can fix that quick enough
one more thing the 24 oz mark is at the bevel where it widens which means the pot holds almost a quart if filled to the brim allowing for actual cooking of 24 oz of food I checked this with my kitchen measuring cups

I got one from Target the other day (the Walmart near me had not had them or the SS cups in stock for weeks), it fits my Guyot Backpacker bottle really well and I even keep one cup in it and have the Guyot on top of it- this fits nicely into my haversack/shoulder bag. I had bought one for a buddy on his birthday (unfortunately someone had stolen his pack from his car awhile back and he was starting over on camping gear) and after looking at it I had to get one for my haversack setup. Looks like a great piece of kit and I look forward to putting it to use.

I got my Stanley set at Walmart a week ago and finally got to try it out today on my hobo stove that I'm working on.
http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f159/DerrFu/0401131907.jpg

I also finally got water to boil over my twig fire. Still refining the hobo stove...
http://i47.photobucket.com/albums/f159/DerrFu/0401131908a.jpg
if you can't see the bubbles, I assure you it is boiling. I'm pretty pleased.

Also, in the spirit of experimentation, this evening while the family was eating left overs, I made one of those dehydrated noodle meals in a pouch (fettuccine alfredo) in backpacking fashion on the stove (dry milk, no butter, measured with the cups that come with the Stanley set). This revealed some practicalities that I hadn't thought of. Don't burn anything in this pot, especially if you have big hands because reaching down to the bottom is somewhat of a pain. Having Comet cleaner or some other stainless steel cleaner would help a ton (which is what I used on the scorched milk) but its still a pain to scrub the bottom edges. The meal was palatable (I've eaten worse) and all in all a nice afternoon practicing my craft.

This Bunn lid assembly supposedly works as a lid for the GSI Glacier cup - Part #02564.0000 (http://www.cw-usa.com/parts-bunn-commercial-lid-assembly.html)

I haven't tried it myself and don't know how close the fit is.

Its true it fit tight enough to pick the mug off the table and hold it.

Not that set specifically, but I have a few recent production Stanley items - double wall mugs and a thermos - and they are well made.

I'm off to Walgreens later today... I'll have a look and let you know if they fit the 1 liter bottle.

The link to the website says they are not sold in stores. Maybe its just an online deal. I did however see these at Target the other night and they seem pretty durable and nice. Not sure if they will nest a nalgene though.

Was looking for a stove and a pot big enough to cook up at least 2 cups of stuff but where stove/pot would all stack together. *light bulb goes on* Stanley cook set. I forgot I had it stowed away. Pulled out, grabbed up a 4" can, made a stove, and stuck my Stanley pot on top. 4.5 minutes later I had a single cup of water at a full boil. Pretty good for 12.99 @ Wal-Mart and a left over can.

Little smaller than I imagined, if it feeds two it wouldn't fill up any friends of mine and myself. However, for a one person kit, will be interesting to try out. Gonna take out the included cups and get the $4.88 cup at Wally World to stack with it. Will put my cheap stove, 4 ounce fuel cannister, windscreen, utensils, and some spices on the inside.

Something must be wrong with mine as I cannot do this! My handle doesn't seem to lock, I drilled a small hole and just clip the leader across but I'd like to use my second one like this. Did you have to mod the "lock" in any way? My second set won't lock either!

The handle doesn't lock. The crossbar between the handle sides will move. Slide that crossbar under the split ring so it wedges against the split ring and stops the handle from opening any further.

I ordered a bail for my Stanley Cookset from Sweeneyguy. It seems that it'll fit, but while playing with it before installation, I decided it would go on a Snowpeak pot instead.

It also occurred to me that a SS bicycle spoke would work as a bail too. Spokes by Wheelsmith and DT, available for about $1 at any local bike shop, are going to be stainless steel with a nickel plated brass nipple. I happen to have some laying around, so I bent one up and drilled a couple of holes in the Stanley. I ended up with a perfect loop bail attached to the Stanley. I secured it with the spoke nipple, but I cut the nipple down a little so it wasn't quite as long. 20 minutes with a drill and a Dremel and it was done.

Of note:

1- Be sure to get a spoke that is appropriately long. Bike spokes are measured in millimeters. I think the one I used was about 300 mm long (not sure on that though).
2- I can unscrew the nipple and remove the bail.
3- There are now 2 holes near the very top edge of my Stanley cook pot, probably less than 1/4" from the top rim. One hole is larger than the other, as the nipple needed to fit through one.
4 The whole set-up - Walmart SS cup, Stanley Cookset with bail attached, and Emberlit SS stove - fits into my Spec Ops brand X6 molle pouch (http://www.specopsbrand.com/x6-m4-ar-15-magazine-pouch-coyote-brown.html).

1- Be sure to get a spoke that is appropriately long. Bike spokes are measured in millimeters. I think the one I used was about 300 mm long (not sure on that though).
2- I can unscrew the nipple and remove the bail.
3- There are now 2 holes near the very top edge of my Stanley cook pot, probably less than 1/4" from the top rim. One hole is larger than the other, as the nipple needed to fit through one.
4 The whole set-up - Walmart SS cup, Stanley Cookset with bail attached, and Emberlit SS stove - fits into my Spec Ops brand X6 molle pouch (http://www.specopsbrand.com/x6-m4-ar-15-magazine-pouch-coyote-brown.html).
5- I tried to upload pictures and I couldn't get it to work.

Can you post pics and such? I have the same setup and love using my dremel haha. Highly helpful bike shop in town too. Just picked up two arm fulls of old tubes for ranger bands today

I took pictures and intended to post them. However, I can't get the picture uploader to work. Using the BCUSA uploader, I browse, find the picture, and then there's no option to upload. That was with IE, I'll have to try it with another browser...

OK, got it to work with Google's Chrome browser. I'm not sure why I couldn't get it to work with IE. Either way, I didn't take pictures of the process, only the finished product.

I can't speak for the guys, but I cannot see the pictures either. It seems to be a glitch in the matrix that frequently the pictures have to be reattached, attached twice if you will.

Can always do the alligator clip and ball chain mod. Not sure how much weight it would hold:

Sorry the pics aren't working. I tried using both IE and Chrome. Initially, at least, it worked in Chrome. It was probably just loading from my cache though.

Either way, it's a good mod to the Stanley Cookset. I haven't used it in the past few days (burn ban in my area, so I've switched to my Trangia), but I think it'll be great.

Hopperja, you might have to use Photobucket or Flicker. I know there is a limit on the number of pictures you can directly up load here on the forum.
