I am considering getting one to cook in. Does anyone have experience cooking in this?
I like the weight, dimensions, and price for solo. Lack of handle doesn't bother me. A lifter or a glove is fine.
Not sure of the lid solution.
Any thoughts?Apr 15, 2008 at 11:04 am #1428651

I use a nearly identical bowl, with the same width and same volume. I do mostly in pot cooking and little freezer bag style meals Typically I use less than 1/2 the volume of the bowl with much room left at the top for vigorous stirring without fear of spilling.
For a lid I generally cover the pot with a sheet of aluminum foil, loosely. I poke a hole in the lid with my spoon for manipulating it on and off the bowl.Apr 15, 2008 at 11:44 am #1428661

One of the best buys in hiking cookware. Drill a couple small holes and hang a wire bail on it. A little tin foil for a lid and you have it made. It is big enough to cook a good meal in and you can stash a lot in it when packed. makes a nice bowl too :)Apr 16, 2008 at 8:23 am #1428775

What are the dimensions on the snow peak bowl? My search turned up one site with a 5.5" diameter. What about the height?
As for a lid I use aluminum foil as the lid for the AGG 3-cup anodized aluminum since I'm cheap, but titanium foil is a slightly sturdier lightweight option. Much more expensive though.Apr 16, 2008 at 12:44 pm #1428817
Prolite tend to be a little anal about their measurements…
If you have a Ziploc 3 Cup Bowl, it nests right around it pretty well…
Other than being less capacity (and therefore shorter) it's basically the same size.
PS – It'll work in a AGG 3-Cup Caldera set up. and I suspect a AGG 3-Cup Lid will fit (or you can just use foil)Apr 19, 2008 at 4:45 pm #1429194
I don't cook in mine but It's on every trip when I'm carrying the Snow Peak Giga Power stove.
Snow Peak Titanium Bowl as wind screen for BPL Firelite SUL 1100 pot.Apr 21, 2008 at 12:15 pm #1429347
Every time I see your version, I wish I had left the rim on mine when I made a windscreen out of it. It simply doesn't save that much weight, and the rim winds up being a cleaner, snagless setup.Apr 22, 2008 at 10:43 am #1429515
With the rim in place the bowl isn't so likely to get bent out of shape.Apr 22, 2008 at 10:06 pm #1429664
does water pour out of the snow peak bowl without dripping down the side?
edit: yes.May 12, 2008 at 6:54 pm #1432980

Denis, any chance of some more pics of your Snowpeak bowl/windshield.
I'm thinking of this for a Pocket Rocket, but don't want to stuff up my bowl.
Do you put it in place before or after attaching the cylinder? Do you need any additional ventilation holes?
Thanks, RodMay 12, 2008 at 7:59 pm #1432986

I would be a little worried about not having enough air supply to the flames myself. This could give too much CO emission. Half a dozen 6 mm (1/4") holes around the base would be very welcome imho.

It's a little easier to install it after mounting the stove on the fuel canister. Rogers post regarding additional intake holes is a good one. Also I wonder at the narrow clearance at the base of the BPL SUL-1100 pot might be a tad narrow for adequate exhaust.
The distance between the pot and the Snow Peak bowl is nominally 3/16" to 1/4". It's likely a larger diameter "bowl" would be better. Perhaps if the flare on the bowl was less the heat would be carried higher on the pot and give better heat transfer to the pot.
I wondered about experimenting with a larger diameter, not-too-high-sided titanium pot to make a better wind screen. The cost of most suitable titanium pans is the only reason I don't try it.May 12, 2008 at 9:52 pm #1433000

I'm sure you all know the SnowpPeak already has a windshield for its Giga stoves. It weighs about 2oz. made out of titanium. I sorry if I am missing the point.May 12, 2008 at 10:12 pm #1433003

Jay, the Snow Peak windscreen is stainless steel and ineffective. It offers no protection from the sides. The bowl is also lighter.May 12, 2008 at 10:44 pm #1433004

Who makes that stand? For the canister.May 12, 2008 at 11:53 pm #1433008

I can not help but think that this setup must look a little like the Primus EtaPower. I am intrigued for possible use with the MYOG inverted canister project, but alas the bowl is a little small for accomodating a snow melting size pot. Perhaps the SUL-1100 is the answer?May 13, 2008 at 12:02 am #1433009

That looks like the stabilizer from Jetboil. From what I understand Snowpeak and Jetboil fuel canisters are interchangeable.May 13, 2008 at 2:27 am #1433018
My experience with the Snow Peak windscreen has been positive, though not carefully tested. I also tend to use windbreaks with any stove. (These are discussed in the thread on silnylon windscreens).
You are right that the bowl is lighter by a fraction of an ounce. The bowl could also be cut down to the height of the SP windscreen if one is concerned with possible air/fuel issues.May 13, 2008 at 2:58 am #1433019

Well, that does give a fair cross-sectional area, but … This is something I found when testing the Caldera: all stoves need a large exhaust area to function well. The cold inlet gases may only need a small area, but the hot exhaust gases need a much bigger one.
Cost – yeah, a problem. I have some light and very cheap conventional aluminium windscreens …
