I'm interested in the GSI Bugaboo 4-person cookset and the accompanying Destination Kitchen; however, I have two similar/related concerns about safety and I was hoping someone in this community might have experience with them or similar products.
In the Cookset product description, it says:
"For your safety, we recommend you not use directly over a campfire..."
I can't tell if this means: don't stick the pots/pans directly into a fire, or if it means that its not even recommended that you use them over a fire, on top of a metal grate/grill, etc.
If it's the former, then obviously, I'm all set (duh! don't put stuff that has plastic in it directly into a fire!). But if it's the latter, then how are you supposed to cook with them? I'll be doing a lot of camping this summer, and at each campsite there will be a fire pit with a metal grate on top of it that can be used as a cooking surface. I need a cook set that can be placed on such a grate and used safely.
Similarly, the Destination Kitchen contains a spatula. Will this thing melt the moment it comes into contact with a super hot pot/pan (that's cooking over a fire on a metal grate) or is it some kind of super plastic that will withstand that type of heat?
