@bobbycartwrightLocale: i don't need no stinkin badges!
Just trying to get a feel for what sort of UL cookware everyone's using. I think stoves, windscreens, utensils and the like have been covered very well in other threads, but pots, mugs, kettles, etc haven't been discussed enough.
So what do you have in your pack? Volume, weight, manufacturer?Jul 9, 2008 at 10:42 am #1442162
I have a BPL Firelite 550 and a couple of Evernew non-stick Ti pots (1.3L and 1.9L) for larger outings.Jul 9, 2008 at 1:16 pm #1442192

I use a Kmart grease pot (cause I am a stingy guy). Costs less than $7.00 USD. Pretty light and has a very tight fitting lid. It is the perfect size for my Jim Falk 4-in-1 Cat stove.Jul 9, 2008 at 1:31 pm #1442195
@jeffcadorinLocale: paper beats rock
I just received my bpl trapper mug. Should be perfect for everything besides family trips. I am waiting for the release of the caldera to go with it.
Planning on picking up a bpl 1100 when they are re-released for the family trips. Finally be able to pickup the bushbuddy as well. I have had no reason to buy a stove that the pot is unavailable for…Jul 9, 2008 at 1:33 pm #1442196

I use a JetBoil 1.5 L. pot(but not the JB stove.)
This is THE most efficient pot I could find. Its Flux Ring corrugated bottom edge and neoprene sides AND wider bottom (more efficient than narrow bottoms) all work together to make this the fastest boiling pot around. The fast cooking time & reduced fuel use easily saved offsets any small extra weight of the JB 1.5 L. pot.
In winter it is great for melting snow with its larger capacity and low fuel use.

I use the MSR titan kettle. Hasn't let me down yet. Works great solo, and I can cook in it for two people.Jul 9, 2008 at 2:17 pm #1442206
I have this Le Creuset 5.5 Quart Stockpot.
It's cast iron and really heats up well. Unfortunately it is over the 9 lb weight limit of my scale so I don't know how much it weighs.
Actually, I carry a 0.9L Evernew (REI) Ti pot. Love the handles and snug lid. It fits my windscreen, pot stand, and stove perfectly.Jul 9, 2008 at 2:18 pm #1442208

I have a Snow Peak Trek 700 mug. 700 mL capacity (I guess, I've never actually measured the useful volume because I've never used it for more than boiling 2 cups of water), weighs about 3 oz or so (if you replace the steel lid with foil).
I used to just like the mug, but with the recent addition of a Caldera Cone system, I have a feeling I will probably grow to love it.

I have many I vary between. Depends on what I am using it for – for simple trips it is either my Primus or my GSI tea kettles.
I had a MSR Titan I used to use as well.
I also have a couple Ti cups (MSR and Snowpeak) for broiling a cup of water.
My favorite pot currently is my GSI Soloist. Yes, it is heavier and that is ok – I like it for its setup. If all 3 of us go I take the GSI Dualist.
But yeah…..I have many to choose from. I like to buy ;-)Jul 9, 2008 at 3:18 pm #1442215
@leviallenLocale: Outdoors Somewhere!
I have all the jetboil stuff currently. I also have the BPL 1100 and I am working with it to lower weight but I love to eat so I will have to put i through its phases to see if it can replace the jetboil stuff.Jul 9, 2008 at 3:41 pm #1442221
@alohatinkLocale: In the Middle of No Where!
When Solo I love my MSR Titan Kettle w/ Lid (volume=.85 liters weight = 4.5 oz not exactly ultra light but dependable and the lid never pops off – no hot water burns :))
Two or three people I use the Caldera Cone Stove System with a Antigravity Gear 2 qt Pot w/ Lid (weight= 5.9 oz)
If my Titan ever wears out though I have my eye on the Evernew TI Volume= 0.9 weight = 4.05 oz)or REI (both the same)
or perhaps the Snow Peak Titanium Mini Solo Cookset for a 10 ounce cup and a 28 fl oz pot with lid all for just 5.5 ounces sounds pretty good to me, I can ditch my green measuring cup.Jul 9, 2008 at 4:06 pm #1442225
I use an AGG 3-cup anodized aluminum. It is very light once I replaced the lid, comparable to most of the titanium stuff and much cheaper. I like the wide bottom for more efficient heating.
On my last trip I added a strip of silicone tape around the outside so it can be handled while hot. Seamed to work reasonably well but needs more testing before I recommend it.

I always camp with my wife so my kitchen setp is geared for two. During 3 seasons we use a 0.9 L Vargo ti pot and for frozen winter trips we use the 1.3 L Vargo ti pot. They weigh 4 & 5 oz. respectively.
Although I am very happy with them, in retrospect, a Kmart grease pot, with handle removed, would probably be just a serviceable for a lot less money and not significantly different in weight. That would leave some money to lighten up elsewhere.
Then again, ti is cool and so am I, well, as long as I use ti cookware :-)
Seriously though, I use the Caldera cone in 3 season camping and I would not buy a pot that isn't compatible with it.Jul 9, 2008 at 6:09 pm #1442246

Snow Peak Ti Mini Solo pot. Works well for two cup or less meals with my alcohol stove setup. Just wish the pot had volume measurements as I don't carry the mug/measuring cup too often.Jul 9, 2008 at 9:50 pm #1442286

I used to use a Titan kettle which is a great choice, I switched to a Base Designs titanium 550 with handles a while back.Jul 10, 2008 at 4:12 am #1442307

I like my pot/mug to house my entire kitchen — everything (stove, lighter, fuel, towel, spork) in one place.
For my canister stove set up — I use Snow Peak 600 pot/mug with a homemade lid.
For my alcohol stove set up — I use FireLite 550 pot/mug.Jul 10, 2008 at 7:06 am #1442318
I'm with Ben. I use the same two mugs- the SP 600 and the BPL 550 with handles. I like the BPL because of the lid. My wife usually carries the Snow Peak. We never use them for anything beyond boiling water, drinking coffee/tea, eating cereal, or washing up. I don't want to have to wash anything after a meal so I wouldn't know what to carry if I was doing any real cooking.Jul 14, 2008 at 8:15 pm #1442952

Does a small cannister fit in the Snow Peak 600 mug? I have a SP 600 but can't find a cannister that fits. I am kicking around picking up a SP Trek 900 and ditching the top pan for a home made lid so I can store a cannister/stove in the mug.Aug 25, 2008 at 8:39 pm #1448542
I found a alum. tea pot on Ebay for $12 shipped. It weighs 5 ounces and holds .9 liter. Perfect for boiling water for bag meals. Let me know if you want a link.Aug 25, 2008 at 11:33 pm #1448557
