how deep is this plate? would it be deep enough to use as a bowl as well? thanks!

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Emma,

It's 0.80"deep (a little over 3/4"). There's no way it holds 2 quarts, like the specs say. They're nice as far as plates go, but I wouldn't plan on using it effectively as a bowl. A few other options you might want to look at are the Sea to Summit Delta Plate (item# STS0071), the Delta Bowl (item# STS0072), or a hybrid plate/bowl, the MSR Deep Dish Plate (item# CAS0549) which comes in two sizes (large and small) and that's about a full 1" deeper than any of the others. For what it's worth, I'm a huge fan of the Delta Bowl. It goes everywhere and does just about everything I need it to. I only use plates when I'm camping.

Perfect Plate

All the Snow Peak gear is fantastic, and this plate is no exception...Eat off of it, cook on it, stable platform for stoves or lanterns, very versatile piece of gear. Cleans easily, won't rust, very lightweight. Titanium.

Great little plate/pan

I love it. Contrary to some, I prefer it's smaller size, at least for backpacking. It is small enough you could use it over a stove if you are careful, but not big enough to be a nusiance. I dont plan on eating a huge meal with like ten servings on my plate. It is extremley lightweight yet durable. I love the narrow sides, i hated carrying my other steel high-sided plate/frying pan. This easily slides in the side pocket of my Kifaru along with annodized aluminum fork/spoon/knife and my PocketRocket and fuel in a little nylon bag. Great setup, and is also good for cooking over coals with, albeit not as good as a dedicated pan. Just make sure you find a way to take it out of the fire, as you dont want to with your hands.

I am going to be camping with limited cleaning water available. How hard is this to clean and what do you recommend to use?

Responded on

The Snow Peak Titanium stuff is not hard to clean at all. I've got this plate, a bowl and a spork and I never have any problems at all. As far as what to clean with there are 2 different ways I use commonly. Both work well and I've never had any problems yet.
1. I'll lick the plate as clean as I can and then leave it alone until my next meal where I'll boil water and put it in here to sanitize it.
2. I'll use a backcountry soap to clean it and then use a small amount of water to rinse the soap out.

wish it was a little bit bigger

Other than its size, this plate is seriously awesome. Have used it as a fan for a camp fire, as a lid for a stove and of course a plate. It washes super easy, doesn't get scratched up or dinged. It could probably be used to cook directly over a fire if needed. I only say that cause it transfers heat so well. Sometimes when I put really hot food on it, my fingers really feel the heat, and I have to put it down or my fingers will get uncomfortable . Basically it's like a super plate.... just wish it was a bit larger.

soo light easy to find room for it

now that I have this I take it even if I don't plan on eating a meal on it. I have used it for a solid base for my stove, a place to set stuff in the snow cave that I did not want to get wet (camera, dry food etc). It is so light and is the sides are short enough still that you can slide it pretty much anywhere in the pack. Great item.

Quintessential

When you are worn out from a long day on the trail, river, or mountain, having your food on a plate is almost as comforting as your campfire. Just don't forget you packed it since its weight will not remind you. And not to pitch, but it does go great with the SP silverware set or spork. That said, dig in!

Nice and light weight

Very nice backpacking plate. Tends to get bent, but that is the price you pay for less weight.

Unnoticeable Weight

I can't even notice the added weight in my pack! Surprisingly strong as well.

Your "Specs" list this plate's capacity at 2 quarts, which seems way too much for the diameter and side. Is 2 quarts an error?

Responded on

yes 2 quarts is an error

Posted on

yea what's the deal would this thing be good for using as a lightweight fry-pan? Would it sit on a jet-boil stove?

Responded on

It would, but it's not supposed to. The sides aren't very high, which I think could be a problem. And it's only 7 inches across. Snow Peak pot lids are actually intended to be fry pans, so I'd go for that, but if you really want to save space, weight, and $$$, go for it. Titanium melts at about double the temperature butane burns at, so it'll hold up just fine.--And titanium is actually a better heat conductor than stainless steel so the pan would heat up faster. Aluminum is substantially better than both, but who wants Alzheimer's?

Responded on

you could totally use it but when it gets hot you will definitely need something to grab it. I would be nervous using my jetboil and this plate. the whole idea seems unstable. Would not be my choice to use those together.

The Snow Peak Trek Titanium Plate

The Snow Peak Trek Titanium Plate is what it says - its a very lightweight plate. Sometimes when a long day of hiking comes to an end, and I don't feel like eating out of the bag, I just dump the food on there and go to town. Beats the hell out of paper plates, and it makes for a nice frisbee for an after dinner activity :)

Does it conducts heat so well that gets too hot to hold ?

Best Answer Responded on

It well might. Any metal will conduct heat well, and titanium is no exception. Plus this plate is very thin. On the other hand, if your food is cool enough to eat, it's probably cool enough to hold.It conducts heat almost too good. Fortunately the plate isn't holding a hot liquid like a bowl or cup which does get to hot to handle, until it cools off a bit.--See answer in above question. Plus here is a site where you can compare conductivities in metals. Aluminum > Titanium > Stainless Steel. http://www.engineersedge.com/properties_of_metals.htm

Responded on

It gets hot. The bowl is more of a problem cause I often put real hot liquids in it. The plate is not as bad cause you can hold the tall sides and usually not an issue. Holding under the hot food you will feel it-pretty much as if you were holding the food itself :)

Could you cook in this or is it TOO lightweight?

Responded on

It'll hold up, but it's pretty small (7.5") and the sides are really low, so I wouldn't advise it.
