I am investing soon into a quality, somewhat lightweight, durable, long lasting, versatile, camping / backpacking cook set. I am so torn right now on what to buy. I will likely only need to be cooking meals for a minimum of 1 person and 2 to 3 persons at the most. I don't know if I will need a 1 liter, 2 liter or 3 liter pot. The main reason for the post is to get opinions from my fellow forum members on cookware materials.

Stainless Steel
Hard-Anodized Aluminum

Again, my priorities are as follows in the order of importance

Easy of cleaning and care

I have looked into MSR, GSI, Snow Peak and possiblly Evernew

All suggestions and experiences are welcome. Thanks for the help guys.
