    Camp kitchen basic equipment.

    Unless you're going ultralight—cooking and eating out of a mug—you're going to want to make the Cascade Designs Alpinist 2 Pot an integral part of your backcountry trekking gear. This versatile 2.4-liter pot is crafted from hard anodized aluminum, which is strong, light, and disperses heat more efficiently than titanium; a non-stick interior surfaces means you’re spending less time cleaning and more time enjoying the campfire. The pot’s lightweight lid doubles as a strainer, and it can be locked into place when you’re under way with the removable Talon pot handle, which flips down when it’s time to get busy over the stove.

    Great minimalist pot!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This pot with the MSR Flex Skillet make a great combo! The pot stacks inside the skillet, the lid fits on both and the MSR Whisperlite stove fits inside for one compact cook kit. Everything stays in place because the handle locks over the lid. And with the handle being detachable you only have to carry one for both pots. It's a great set up for me, I like minimal weight and minimal size. The pot is more than large enough for me to boil water for a meal and a hot drink at the same time. Or 3-4 hot drinks when I'm hiking with a group.
    The only thing I would change is the strainer holes on top... Not really change but add to it. I like having the strainer built into the lid when I need to use it. But I wish there was a way to close the strainer when I was boiling water. It doesn't let a lot of heat out but some escapes. I'd like to see MSR add a sliding piece of metal that can be closed over the holes when you don't need them. Sure it would add a bit of weight but less than an ounce and would save some fuel.

    Keeps me cookin'

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This pot was a definite upgrade to my camp kitchen. It's light, relatively durable, non-stick, has some nice features like the locking lid and the measurement marks. I often do more than just boil water, and have found that I can cook up some amazing things for 2-4 people.

    Lid broke after 5th use

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I actually like these pots, with an exception that the handle locking mechanism needs improvement. It is so tight that the red plastic ring underneath the lid knob cracked and broke into three pieces after a few uses. That would be great if you could turn the lid handle so it wouldn't snap every time you lock it. Now the handle does not hold the lid at all. Had to return it.

    Nice pot for more than two people

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Just like the smaller version, it's light and the locking handle is a nice feature. I only take this pot if I have more than two people in the group or we're melting snow.

    Awesome little pot

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I got this pot in a set with plates and cups. I love the handle it just pops right off for easy cleaning and also acts as a lid lock when in storage or in your backpack. Works great even with mac n cheese!

    Dank Pot

      Great pot. Picked this sucker up on steep & cheep and have loved it ever since. Boils water/melts snow quick at altitude, has a strainer in the lid for pasta. Simple, light. Fits a ton of stuff on the inside and snaps shut. The handle is also sturdy and stays cool.

      Will the whisperlite international fit in...

      Am curious about the non-stick coating....

      Am curious about the non-stick coating. Is it a teflon type of stuff that scratches off or is it actually hard anodzing on he interior of the pot? I'm not a fan of consuming teflon or direct contact of bare aluminum with my grub when the coating scratches off.

      Like Karl says, it's all going to be a matter of the utensils you use and the care you take...metal utensils, scouring pads...your finish is toast...quickly. The coating is pretty tough, but it can only take so much. Armed with this in mind, you'll get years and years out of these pots. Happy cooking.
