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.
