We've had 2 x Carri Chef Deluxe packages in the past, when the family were younger and came with us.
Just be aware that the pack size is huge, and quite heavy. We used the skottel mostly (it's a good idea to get a skottel liner, they make washing up so much easier!), and the dual-sided plate (forgot the name of it, one side ribbed and one side smooth). We never used it as an oven or as a pan stand, and used to leave the lid at home to try and reduce the bulk a bit.
In the end, we sold the Carri Chef Deluxe and bought a Campingaz Party Grill, which screws directly into a gas bottle. This still gives all the benefits of the skottel (we still use the liner!), but a much smaller and more manageable pack size (I think they've been discontinued now, though).
Now there's (usually) just the two of us, I feel even this is now overkill, and prefer to take a Cobb. Different kettle of fish I suppose(but you can get a gas variety):
