When cooking for large groups in the backcountry, you need to be able to count on your cookware, stoves and fuel.
The World leader in outdoor cookware is GSI Outdoors. They use cutting edge technology and have created the "Pinnacle Base Camper. The Pinnacle set is absolutely the best thing I have used and seen on the market. The Pinnacle can take the punishment of a weekend cooking for 12 and continue to perform like new!
The Pinnacle series uses Teflon with Radiance technology which has been tested and approved expressly for camp-ware use. Their secret lies in a specifically formulated topcoat engineered to enhance heat dispersion (which is one of biggest concerns of any backpacking cook) and virtually eliminate hot spots. It has a heavy penchant for scratch resistance and is safe for most metal utensils.
If I could sum it up in non technical jargon, GSI's stuff is simply the best on the planet. I have had the opportunity to cook outdoors all over world over the last 3 decades using various cookware and fuel source from Sterno in the 70's , Diesel in the military, open fire, white gas and ISO Butane. The cookware used ranged from rugged cast iron to cheap aluminum and even tin foil.
The Pinnacle Base Camper set includes 1= 5ltr pot that can cook enough pasta for 10 people, 3ltr pot, frying pan and strainer lids for the pots, cutting board and a welded sink! If you cook for large group outdoors, go out and pick a Pinnacle up, your family and crew will thank you continually as you prepare food fit for royalty outdoors!
