- 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!
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.
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.
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...
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.

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
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.
Does anyone know if the bigger pot from the snow peak multi compact cookset will fit inside this pot?
The multi compact (SNO0015) will fit inside this if you're looking to nest it inside this one.
The height of this product is 4 inches and the height of the multi compact is 4 inches. So I'd bank on not putting the metal lid on this pot but the plastic lid instead.

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!
This was taken from the box containing the pot. 68 fl oz.
Liability lawyers may be involved in specifying 600mL of air in your pot, but it really is a 2.0L/68oz pot. If you under-fill the pot, it will be more stable on stoves with narrow feet and pot supports (careful centering and balance), but if you have an awesome wide-support stove like a Coleman double-burner ;-) or a rack over your heat, fill 'er up!
I use the pot as armor inside my pack for things that should not be squished. The mesh bag and a wool hat are a cozy as well as a silencer. The mesh bag doubles as an external sock-drier.
Is this pot non-stick?
Is this pot non-stick?
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".
can the snow peak 1400 fit inside this?
can the snow peak 1400 fit inside this?
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.
