“I love how utilitarian this set is,” says a tester who has no need for nonstick coatings and multiple nesting pots. “I dry my own foods and rehydrate them in bags, so this efficient boiler is perfect for my style of cooking.”

The one-liter kettle has a spout that makes pouring completely drip-free, a tight-fitting lid that boosts boil times, and burnproof rubber-coated handles. A bowl, insulated cup (with sipper lid), and a spork are included, and all fit neatly inside—with room to spare for a small fuel canister.

The kettle is made of hard-anodized aluminum, which has proved dentproof through drops and rough packing. $30; 10.9 oz.;
