There;s nothing special about this kit. It's thin aluminum, made in China, has some sharp edges and really doesn't live up to my expectations from Wenzel. If you're a once a year camper it's fine for one person, but not for more! If you need something that's sturdy and durable I suggest you purchase something in a higher price and quality range. I'm using mine in a survival kit and it should do just fine for that purpose.

I was very impressed here with what you get for under eight dollars. It's very thin and it's very light, and you know what? Some would consider that an advantage when you're hiking, and have to carry all your gear. It feels nowhere as cheap as others complained about, but that's the thing with Chinese quality- it's hit or miss. Mine feels great except for the pot, which itself is solid and so is the lid, but if you're rough on the handle I can see it breaking. But let's be honest, some people could break anything. If you don't have the ability to take a piece of heavy gauge wire and replace that handle, then don't buy cheap Chinese stuff in the first place. The other problem is that when packed together, it RATTLES. Like, BADLY. Except anyone with any degree of ingenuity can make two small bends to the handle and it screws together right as a drum, no rattles whatsoever.

This is a fairly cheap quality kit, but it's VERY cheap to buy. I think you're actually getting slightly more than you pay for, and it's well deserving of five stars.

This mess kit is a bit deceiving, You may think, wow this has a handle and looks like a frying pan. You would be wrong. My girlfriend attempted to make some eggs using the pan, and the pan melted through completely. This is mess kit is essentially just a bunch of plates to eat off of, DO NOT try to cook using them.

I bought this mess kit in a local hardware store, and i can legitimately say that it was a bit of a waste of money, space and materials. the hanging billy pot is too shallow, so if you try to fill it with water and hang it on a tripod over the fire (like how it seems to be intended), the water can easily spill out and douse your fire. the pot does fit inside the pan somewhat, but not well.

if you plan on using this for simply the pan and lid/plate or for the plastic cup, it'll do the job, though i'm not saying that it will do so well.

final verdict: waste of money. save your cash up and buy a better kit. this one isn't worth the headaches.

I was extremely dissapointed. If this is called the deluxe model I wonder what the cheep model would look like, a Barbie and Ken Mess Kit? This thing is nothing more than a child's play toy. The metal is so thin, put it over an open outdoor flame and it's going to badly warp if not actually melt. Would I recomend it to a serious outdoorsman or survivalist? I'd be laughed off the planet. I expected something more the size and quality a grown man could some serious use out of for many years.

You get what you pay for and that is exactly what you get with this mess kit. It is made of cheap materials and i would not recommend it for someone who is actually planning on going out in the woods in camping as i am not sure that it would stand up to an open flame without melting. Thankfully i purchased it for my eight year old and not for camping. Not only is it poorly made but its just about impossible to get all back together once you have taken it apart. If you are looking for something to take out camping with you i would not recommend this product!

It is nothing more than a cheap,Chinese knockoff. I was expecting a lot more quality than I received. Also, seeing the picture, it appears there should be another piece to the kit. It shows a piece that appears to be a plate, as if it would go on top of the kit, under the handle. Overall I would not buy another, or recommend it to anyone else.

For a lightweight,compact cook set this would be an item to add. The mess kit is not huge but very functional for cooking at a campsite.The kit fits inside of each other & goes into its' own small bag. If you are expecting a heavier type of mess kit this one is not for you. I spent 30 years in the military & wished that they had a mess kit like this. Wenzel is a trusted name for outdoor & camping supplies,so this kit fits well with the Wenzel name. This kit fits well into a back pack & is so light that you will not know that it is in your backpack while carrying it.
