    I know most of you guys already have one of these but for anyone that doesn't, they are the lowest I've seen them in a long time. $11.49 on Amazon is a good deal.

    Even with the exchange that's a good deal! Amazon Canada sale price is $25. Could be money in smuggling cookware north!
    ROFL!

    If you can get ahold of a Crown Royal 750ml bag, this cookset fits perfectly in there.

    After reading the initial reviews and seeing videos of people using the Stanley Cook Set I just had to have one, I paid full Walmart boat ($14.99) for it when it first made it's appearance, I have to admit that even at $15.00 it was a really good price for a Stainless Steel Pot, lid, and two heavy plastic cups.
    Well, that was a few years ago, I still have it, and it's still like new, that's not a brag on it's toughness, I wouldn't know about that, It's still like new because I haven't used it past trying it out, It might be a great bush pot for some folks, especially if all they do is use it to boil water, It works pretty good for that as long as you aren't the type to like hanging your pot over the fire like I am.
    Oh. you could jury rig a piece of wire as a bail or do as I did and replace the plastic lid tab with a SS key ring and hang it from that with the handle locked in the closed position, you can't check the progress of your boil easily, but if you pay attention to the steam coming out of the lid it'll pretty much tell you where it's at.
    The main reasons I don't use it is because it's too tall, too narrow, and too unstable to use on anything but a perfectly flat surface, and it doesn't fit right on most of my back packing stoves because of it's narrow base, which makes it quite tippy, if you intend to do any actual cooking in one like say a soup, stew, or to rehydrate dried foods like rice and pasta dishes, you have to hold the pot handle while you stir the food or risk tipping the pot over because it's top heavy.
    OK, it must have some value, some trait that makes it worth the price and it's less than great performance, actually it does, for me, the lid justifies the cost of what I paid for the whole set, it fits perfectly on my REI and Wally World SS cups giving me a great little 18 ounce pot/cup/coffee mug, and makes a nice little covered tea pot to steep my tea in and keep the flying bugs out.
    IMHO what makes a good Bush Pot is one that's wider than it is high, has a tight fitting lid, has a bail and side handles, and a small pour spout is a nice addition, there are many bush pots on the market offered by at least a dozen reputable venders, my two happen to be and 1.1 Lt. Mors Bush Pot by Four Dog Stoves, and a .750 Ml. Toaks Bush Pot, both have and continue to serve me well.
    As far as the Stanley pot and heavy plastic cup go, someday I'll run across some youngster who's looking to get into woods bumming and I'll add it to his/her kit, minus the lid of course. :27:

    image.jpg I have one and ordered 2 more. They just showed up in the mail. I keep these in vehicles, boat, etc. cheap enough to leave it there and always have something in an emergency or general time of need. Can’t beat it for the price

    Just picked up a metal flatware holder. About 1/2, 3/4 inch clearance all the way around. This will fit nicely in it.
