Looking for a great cast iron cook set? Look no further. Once you've seasoned the pieces they're great/easy to maintain! I purchased my set about 6 years ago and they've seen a lot of camp outs with out an issue (100 yrs of Boy Scouts in 2010!!!). I've been looking for a second set ever since I bought/used my set. (need to double the size of my cook set - 1 dutch oven just isn't enough to feed a troop). The skillet is awesome - has been sitting on my gas stove top for 3+ years now and is used weekly. My only complaint (thus 4 stars) is w/ the skillet: The eye hole on the handle is not big enough for the "lid-lifter" that is included in the set. The dutch oven does not have legs/feet. I count that as a bonus, but others may see it as a draw back. For the money, worth every penny and I plan to buy this set again as soon as I can find it.
I have had this set for 12years!!! I have repaired the cabinet 2 times... But the cookware has been used to teach 4-Hers how to cook and bake over the campfire for twelve years and continues to be my go to pots to use... I have currently loaned the set out to a young family for their Summer vacation. I have purchased two sets and the second set was a gift.... SAMs club carried this set for $35 Two summers running. 2001-2002... I would recommend this set to any outdoor cooking enthusiast... Awesome set!!!!
