Evernew Titanium Pasta Pot
I replaced my old Titanium camping pot with the more compact 1 liter, 3.9-ounce Evernew titanium pasta pot (formerly sold by REI), in 2010 before hiking coast-to-coast in Scotland’s TGO Challenge. While my primary reason for doing this was to compress the size of my gear, I also like the pre-drilled holes in the top lid that make it easy to drain Ramen noodles or pasta so you can eat your food right from the pot without making a huge mess. Metric and English liquid measures are conveniently engraved on the side of the pot to ensure that you use the right amount of water in your trail recipes.
Nine years later, I’m still loving and using this cook pot on every backpacking trip I take. I mainly make one-pot, soupy meals in it like hot wheat cereal or ramen noodles because I like heating real food that takes less time to rehydrate (reanimate) than freeze-dried or dehydrated food.
This pot is also perfectly sized to snuggly hold a large can of isobutane cooking gas and prevent the rattling sounds that occur when you carry a bunch of metallic cooking gear that doesn’t fit together nicely. It has insulated folding wire handles which make it easy to grasp and eat from, that but fold away conveniently for storage.
I’ve continued to use the Evernew Titanium Pasta Pot (size medium) to the present day (that’s nine years). It’s a little dented but then again, so am I. These days, I mainly use it with an ultralight Esbit stove system today and it’s perfectly sized for that fuel source, or a wood stove, or an isobutane stove if that’s what you prefer.

I was looking at that pot last week….who knows, I am sure I will end up with one soon enough ;-)
Looks to me like when dinner is ready, you can pick it up and pour dinner straight down your gullet without bothering with a spoon. Nice.
Does it come with blood thinners to counter all the ramen noodles you eat :-)
I have this same pot (the Evernew version – Evernew makes the REI pots). Love it. But I have noticed (unless it is my imagination, haven't done a good test)the titanium is a bit thick – causing the water to take longer to boil than in similar size posts (like a snowpeak I have).
Have you also noticed this?
Not really. I use an isobutane flamethrower (Snowpeak gigapower) stove to heat water since I don't like to wait.
I just bought this REI pasta pot and noticed there's a warning indicating "Maintain the integrity of the pot by avoiding the use of intense concentrated heat that can cause overheating, especially while pot is empty". Granted, the "while empty" part makes sense. But will the "concentrated heat" of my Simmerlite stove damage the pot?
I have a simmerlite too and have never experienced any problems with it and titanium cookware. I wouldn't worry about it.
The worst is you warp the bottom of the pot and or leave a color change – still usable though. Lets just say I did that to a Ti pot last year when I wasn't paying attention and ran it dry. Oops…..
Excellent, thanks :)
