The aluminum skillet on the Trail Chef Cook kit was as good as any relatively thin aluminum skillet. Taught to cook on coals, it worked fine. BSA had them made thinner and thinner towards the end, so they were less good.
The individual "mess kit" was too thin for all but the most careful user, but no worse for cooking than the GI steel mess kit. i replaced my BSA mess kit with a GI mess kit after the first Scout campout.
The mess kit pot once had a detente that locked the bail, preventing spilling. As competence declined at BSA, the detente went away, and it was Spill City.
