Not exactly 'non-stick', but still better than aluminum, and lighter than steel! Just be sure to keep the olive oil handy when using for more than just boiling water...
Strong and light, easy to wash and pack up. Conducts heat well and cooks thoroughly. I use a little oil with every cooking session and keeps the food in my fork heading to my mouth instead of the cookware.
The only complaint is the little mesh bag they give you to carry it all in-it broke VERY fast but otherwise this is the best set of cookware I have ever had! Durable, heats up quickly, cleans easily, etc...
I recommend this brand to everyone!
I don't see anything above referring to titanium being non-stick, never had that expectation. But re:titanium, yes! Super light, and no aluminum in your food. No more aluminum for me! But I will use stainless also. Do your eggs with olive oil.
As an all inclusive, lightweight set this cannot be beat. Whether you're just heating water for freeze dried meals or doing some minor gourmand camp cooking, this set is up to the task.
The measurements inside the pots are handy for an task, everything is absurdly lightweight (yet strong) and the main pot fits a snow peak fuel canister perfectly. When I take only the L Pot out for ultralight hiking, I'm only toting four ounces with me.
The handles can get a little hot if cooking over an open flame but titanium also cools incredibly fast.
This cook set is light and strong. I use the smaller pot as a mug and the larger for cooking. I like the idea of frying pans as lids, but I have yet to use it this way. I usually stick to easy, boil water and add to food methods of cooking while in the backcountry. These clean easily and can fir a fuel can in the small pot. If you have the snow peak LiteMax it will fit in the small pot as well.
Can the inner pot and pan be used alone, for minimalist? Do they fit together and stay that way AND how many oz does small pot hold? Large pot? Weight of the two smaller pot/pan together?
Looking for a kit that I can use solo in part but in full if with others... Thanks!!
The small pot holds 24oz and the larger pot holds 34oz. For the pans the smaller is 12oz and the larger is 17oz. The smaller set would fit together since the pan is meant to act as a lid to the pot. I'm not exactly sure on the weight of the smaller set though. Could not find any information on it either.
Can you put these directly on coals form a fire without any ill effects?
Yes. Just be aware of a few things- Ti cook wear in general tends to have thin walls. It can handle the heat, but because of the gauge of the metal, sometimes it distorts a little. Usually no big deal, just control your heat and never let it go dry. What you are guaranteed to get is a lot of discoloration. Again, no big deal, it adds character, unless you have OCD and get freaked about stuff like that. All that said, if cooking on an open fire is all you plan to do, Ti wouldn't be my first choice. I would save some money and find a cheap hard anodized aluminum pot that I didn't mind trashing so much.
This is one of those gear purchases that you will have forever. I have had my set for at least 8 years and it works just like new.
-Boils taste free water
-Easy to clean if you don't burn anything
Part of being timeless is the loss of a coated finish for non-stick/heat dissapation. For me this isn't an issue. If I burn something like chili it will leave some black on the bottom but at home it comes off with a little soaking and scrubbing.
The handles can get hot if you are cooking something on the fire while your other pot is on the stove. Also when using the top to strain water you have to squeeze the handles on the pan tight or they may buckle into the folded position leaving your food to defy gravity on its own.
Very light very compact good design it was smaller than I thought it would be but it boiled water very fast did great in a week long back backing trip through Yosemite. We tried some pancakes with no oil and titanium is not Teflon other than that loved the set.
Does anyone know how many ounces these pots are? The Snow Peak has another set that is a 47ounce and a 30ounce with lids and I was wondering if this set was about the same or less capacity.
According to Snow Peak's website they are 32oz and 23oz for capacity.
I've had a chance to use these on a few trips now, and I'm quite impressed. I used them both with my jet boil and on a rack over open coals in my camp fire, and they're no worse for the ware. Very light weight and durable. If you're looking for a compact light weight cooking set for 1-3 people these are a great buy.
Will the snow peak bowl fit in this set?
The bowl is a a bit too big in diameter to fit inside of the small pot. The diameter of the small pot is 5 inches and the bowl is 5.5 inches.
I want something just like this but a little bigger. 2 pots and at least 1 pan. Titanium is a must. Does anyone have any suggestions?
I've found that Mont-bell offers the most diverse variety of titanium cook sets. Either the #'s 2.3 or 1.2.3 might be what you're looking for. Here's more information:
Haven't had a chance to test these out on a trip yet, but they seem great. Best thing is my MSR simmerlite fits into the smaller pot, if anyone is wondering.
I have thoroughly tested these pots and their lids/sauce pans extensively. Do not try to fry an egg in the lids, non-stick does not exist. However, the set is very light and works fine for what I need on trails, usually water boiling, stews, tea, etc. And the egg was a purposeful attempt to put "naturally no stick" to the test. Great set, compact and easy to clean.
I liked the set as I traveled to CO on my motorcycle. I wish the tops would secure better for traveling. The lightweight aspect and the nesting were all helpful.
other than weight what are the advantages / disadvantages of titanium cookware vs. aluminum or steel?
Titanium is more durable than aluminum or steel. Aluminum distributes heat slightly better & is less expensive. Steel cleans up better, heats evenly, but is the heaviest. If you are mainly boiling water & have the money to invest, I'd purchase titanium. I like the durability & lightweight qualities. Aluminum is almost as light, not as durable (dents easily), but is much more wallet friendly. Some people prefer steel cookware. I have a fifteen year old MSR Alpine steel cookset that I used for eleven years prior to titanium & it still looks brand new.
One more option. If you do a lot of cooking in your pot, consider coated cookware. It distributes heat evenly & makes cleanup a breeze. Make sure not to scratch the surface by using plastic, heat resistant utensils.
Many things to ponder. I hope this helps.
I've been camping with these pots and pans twice now and can say that they are awesome. Some people say that they are too flimsy but this is not true. The have been crammed in my pack and still have now dents. The handles take a little getting used to but are great as you don't have to use a handle gripper as each pot has its own handles. The pots seems to grip the stove well even tho there are no grooves on the bottom. The pans are perfect lids as the handle is very useful on the side and not on the top when taking the lid off since the side handle never gets hot. I haven't had a problem with stuff sticking however I just try to make sure stuff doesn't get burnt if I'm not heating water.
