The Coleman Exponent Mini Cook Kit is a solo pan set that all packs down neatly into a compact kit that fits inside a mesh stuffsack. You get a 940ml and 590ml pot plus 470ml and 350ml pans that can be used as lids to the pots. The pots and pans all have fold-out handles. But the pan grips are not rubberised and so, not surprisingly, they get hot easily. There are lighter options at higher prices.
Packed size 14.5x12cm

Verdict: The Coleman Exponent Mini Cook Kit is a very good basic solo cook set but the metal pan grips are a drawback.
