Description

Dinner for breakfast? Next you'll be telling us that dogs and cats are living together in harmony.

At home, when your eyes are bigger than your stomach, getting a doggy bag isn't usually all that hard. But in the backcountry, leftover portions either get wasted in the fire or packed out, which is a bummer for you and your wallet. Next time, head out with the Snow Peak Cook and Save Titanium Pot so that your overflow mac 'n cheese dinner portions can fold right into your gourmet breakfast spread.
  • The 68-fluid-ounce pot is one of Snow Peak's largest titanium offerings
  • Titanium body and lid are super-lightweight, resist corrosion, and impart virtually no metallic smell or taste
  • Plastic sealing lid lets you store leftover food till morning when your stomach has recovered its sprightly shape
  • Newsflash: plastic and heat don't always mix well, so if you're cooking with this pot, use the titanium lid, and if you're storing leftovers, use the plastic top

Just dorkin it out with my new light titanium weight pot.

Light and Bomber (Part 1)

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Just purchased this pot a week ago and used on a multi-day trip up in the Sawtooths.

As in the tech specs, this pot is super light coming in at just under 8 ounces. Nothing like shaving a few ounces to lighten your load!

Cooking:
Let's talk about cooking with this guy. It's pretty sweet and can hold a decent amount of food. To keep cleaning the easiest on our trip, I kept the heat low and the food moving to avoid burning the food or marking up the bottom of the pot. The pot looks great and never had any food-stuff stick to it.

Handle:
Initially I had some concern with the thermal spread of the heat from stove heating the handle up too much when cooking. The handle did heat up a little bit while we were cooking but never too much. There was never any discomfort using the handle. Just make sure that when you?re cooking, you don?t leave the handle up against the pot, otherwise it WILL HEAT UP TOO MUCH! (We didn?t make this mistake, just using my noggin). Have the handle in the open position and it?ll do a good job of staying usable.

The handle does a great job dealing with heavy loads. We had four cups of water and some soup mix cooking and there were never any concerns about the handle being too frail to handle the load.


Titanium Lid:
So a few things about the lid. My main concern is with the mini titanium handle on the top. It could just be the pot I have but it seems like the flange that holds it in place was put on too tight. They look like spot welds and the pressure might have been set too high, but the small pinchable handle should be able to rotate cleanly on mine and it doesn't. Not a major concern for me since it meets my weight criteria.

Like your favorite Days of Our Lives soap opera, this is too be continued...

So for some reason I can't post the rest of my review under a new one so I'll post it here in the comments section....

Titanium Lid continued:
My other major concern with the titanium lid is that after a few uses (we boiled water in the mornings for BFAST and then cooked dinner in the pot each night for din-din) but there is a slight warpage to the lid after this. We never put serious heat to this. All we did was bring water to a boil and then turned off the stove or brought our soup to a boil and then simmered for 5-minutes. The lid is more than still usable, not a reason to return it just an observation. Slightly disappointed in the warping, but hey, shit happens. The beat goes on.

Plastic Lid & Mesh Bag:
So for my trip I left these two behind. My goal was to get our packs for our 3 day/4 night trip under 25 pounds per person and to do so the plastic lid and mesh bag didn't make the cut. But I've played with both and the plastic lid fits nicely and would be great for a trip where I plan on storing food overnight. We demolished the food we ate so nothing needed storing.

Everyday Size

I use a stainless steel pot exactly this size almost everyday. It is the perfect size for a very large one pot meal whether it is mac and cheese, rice, potatoes or anything you can cram into it. The size allows a standard mac and cheese, a large can of meat and a ton of veggies all in the same pot for a simple one pot meal. I am getting this pot in titanium because while mine is a great size for making large amounts of food or boiling lots of coffee water, it is too heavy in stainless steel to carry around in a pack. I have cups and smaller pots in ti and I know this will be a welcome addition for my all around lightweight cooking experience. The 2 liter ti will allow me to braise a chunk of meat and throw lots of other local goodies in for a great stew which is terrific on a cold rainy day. Looking forward to having my Snow Peak Ti in 2 liter arrive soon.

Can you please please confirm that this...

Can you please please confirm that this is 68oz / 2L capacity?
Snow Peaks website lists it as 48 oz / 1.4 L

I believe BC simply listed it improperly; on REI, they are a bit more concise about what the pot specifications are. For instance, they list the liquid capacity as being 1.4 L ( or 48 fluid ounces), but the dimensions they list as the same. However, one thing that they clarify on REI is that what this set comes with is a 2-liter pot, titanium lid, and a plastic sealing lid. Basically, I think technically it is a 2-liter pot, but it's only meant to hold up to 1.4 L of food/liquid at a given time. If you check out this link (http://www.rei.com/product/831568/snow-peak-titanium-cook-n-save-pot#specsTab), scroll over the picture they provide and it will auto-magnify; whilst doing that, observe the measurement indicators pressed into the metal sidewall of the pot; you will notice that the measurements end well below the rim of the pot, which is why both specs are technically right, but to definitively answer, the pot is only meant to cook up to 1.4 L of anything at a given time.
Hope that helps!

Is this pot non-stick?

Is this pot non-stick?

Best Answer Responded on

Simply put, no. I have never seen titanium backpacking cookware with non-stick on it, and this is not an exception. Titanium is naturally less "sticky" than some other materials, so this helps some, but I would not call it a "non-stick metal".

Great Pot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This pot is awesome! Super lightweight and easy to clean. Big enough to feed 2 or one really big meal. I use it all the time when I go bikepacking and it has been great to me. The best part is by far being able to store any extra food for a midnight snack

can the snow peak 1400 fit inside this?

Hey Carl,

No, I just measured my 1400 and the height with the lid on is about 5 3/4" and without the lid, it's 4 1/2". Even laying it on its side, it's still too wide in the diameter to make the 4" height on this one. Sorry.

Perfect Pot

This pot is great for big 2-person meals or regular 3-person meals. We often do 30 mile days and make a big meal mid afternoon. Leftovers stay in the pot, the plastic lid snaps on and and we finish them up a few hours later. We looked for the lightest 2L pot and found it.
