Sorry for late response.
“I was wondering what do you guys recommend in terms of cooking pots/dishes, utensils etc. for couples.
What sort of pots, sizes, materials, brand names etc. are good?”
+1 on the 1.3L evernew TI mentioned. 4.8oz. – love those handles.
We (wife and I) do freezer bag cooking. We use that pot on a White Box alcohol stove. Actually, I’ve fed 5 with this setup. Meal time for all 5 took about 40 minutes.
Utensils: we just use long-handled Ti spoons.
