Comments about Pinnacle Frypan:
I have three of GSI's nested back pack cooksets that have the pinnacle coatings and all I can say is these skillets are just as good as all of those. In fact better since these are a bit thicker so you don't get that littel dimple that rises up in the center of the pan as they heat up. These showed zero warpage from heat.
The coating is so good that you may find them "to" slippery. Gotta be carefull not to drop your food becuase they move around so easily in the pans. I picked the pan up to hard and my eggs nearly slid out.
I can go from frying sausages right to eggs doing nothing between but wiping with a towel. Don't even need any grease for the eggs. These are true non-stick! I really appreciate that when it comes time to clean them up as I don't really need water to clean them. Which is a major relief when camping and having no sink and limited fresh water.
Another thing I like is how the handles fold for storage and they are so light that they don't cause your pan to tip off smaller backpacking stoves like regular cookware.
I got 2 of the 10" modes and they are the perfect size to fit 2 of them side by side on my coleman duel fuel stove. No issues with handles heating up either on the coleman stove.
Even heat with no apparent hot spots even on my Primus Omnifuel backpack stoves. Your milage may vary based on the the flame spread of your stove. Especially with some stoves like pocket rockets that are primarily designed to boil water in small diameter pots.
These are so light I could see taking a single 8" version and stuffing it in my pack for a multi-day, multi-person outing.
The only issues I have are the lack of lids, harder then you might expect to find some that are a proper fit. Even harder for some that are lightweight and compliment this pan. I have some Calphalon lids that fit but they are glass and heavy. So they won't see any action in the field really.
Other issue is that both of mine showed damage from shipping. Both had a dent in the exact same spot which was an indication of it being from a lot of pans being stacked on top of each other and the bottom of the pan on top was denting the one below it.
1 pan has a nick in the non-stick coating exposing the metal on the lip of the pan, but its at the top edge and won't impact its performance. Also that pan is a bit out of round so a lid won't fit on it properly and seal it.
But I chock these up to issues comming from the manufacture to camp saver as I imagine 50 of these stacked ontop of each other. Camp Saver has always taken good care of me and been generous with discount coupons so it's not worth bugging them about.
All in all the best camp cookware I can get at such a low price. If you need a corresponding pot, look at the GSI base camper Pinnacle set.
