Optimus Kettle

rated 4 of 5 stars I've found this to be the only pot I need when "hot camping" on backpack trips. For comparison purposes, I'm a lightweight (under 20lb pack w/food for 3 days and fishing gear - FSO weight under 25lb) and will often "cold camp", taking no stove or foods that need cooking (unless I'm fishing, too). I've been helping people find the joys of the wilderness since I was in Scouts 40+years ago and have led beginners and beginner groups on successful backpacking trips in the Sierra Nevada for years. In… Full review

Open Country Aluminum Covered Kettle - 2 Quart

rated 5 of 5 stars Open Country 2 quart aluminum pot. I bought this pot a few years ago and it quickly became one of my favorite pots. It is a simple aluminum pot with a good lid. It has an efficient, relatively wide shape so it captures heat well. The shape also makes it good for packing other items inside. There is no nonstick coating to be damaged. It is very reasonably priced at about $15. It isn’t much heavier than titanium. The aluminum conducts heat well. The 2 quarts is a good capacity, although more than… Full review

GSI Outdoors Tea Kettle HAE

rated 5 of 5 stars Great pot, but you can cook in it too. Read in another review that you can cook in it and wanted to be sure before I took it on the trail for that purpose. Because it has a very wide lid you can actually cook in this pot. I made one of my favorite meals, Fettuccini with Salmon. I used the Lipton Knorr Pasta Sides Alfredo and a foil packet of Smoked Salmon purchased from the grocery store. The recipe calls for 2 cups of water and the total contents just fit into the pot. I cooked it over a Trangia… Full review

MSR Titan Kettle

rated 5 of 5 stars Simple, high quality, lightweight pot. This is a great item that I'm glad I purchased. This kettle is well made and durable. It has served me well whether I was cooking over open flame, an alcohol stove, or a canister stove. I try to keep my meals really simple while being really good.  I try to make things that require boiling water and dumping in a packet of ingredients. I use this pot as my bowl and eat directly from it and also use it for making tea and then drink directly from it. This is… Full review

GSI Outdoors Tea Kettle HAE

rated 5 of 5 stars Lightweight little kettle that's pretty close to indestructable. Definitely worth the cost, which really isn't all that much. The only downside I can see is that where the handle connects to the pot, there are some sharp edges. I wouldn't be comfortable with it jabbing into a water bladder and I question how long it will be before I end up with a hole in my pack because I wasn't cautious enough. Now for the good stuff...  Not long after I got this kettle, I was boiling water at home for a cup of… Full review

GSI Outdoors Tea Kettle HAE

rated 4 of 5 stars Whether used as a compact primary or secondary pot this 1 quart kettle gets the job done without taking up a lot of space. Great for solo dining or making hot beverages for the whole group. Having used the GSI Dualist set for a few years when doing group and family trips I kept them in mind when looking for a kettle. I wanted something better suited for solo use and went with the GSI Tea Kettle over other options based on that previous experience. The one quart kettle has a wide 4 3/8ths inch top… Full review

MSR Titan Kettle

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Great piece of kit, very usable, ticks 99% of the boxes. I've been using this kettle for a while now, as it serves as a cooking pot as well as a kettle, and nests with an MSR Titan Cup, alcohol stove, micro gas stove, folding spork, and firesteel, with the rim of a gas cartridge sitting perfectly in the recess in the lid. Not sure how people are using this when they say the handles get hot, as the handles have never gotten too hot to hold on mine, whether I'm using the alcohol stove or the gas stoves. Full review

Ozark Trail Coffee Percolator

rated 3.5 of 5 stars Don't just think of this for camping. If your electric goes out like ours does often from storms, we can still have that fresh hot pot of coffee. I can't start my day without a cup!!! I do wish the inside parts were made of something stronger. They don't hold up long ... very weak ... bend easy. Full review

GSI Outdoors Tea Kettle HAE

rated 4 of 5 stars Even though this kettle is lightweight I normally take it car camping. It works great for making a couple of mugs of tea or Startbucks Via coffee and with the tight lid, the water heats up pretty fast. The handle locks in place so pouring is easy and can be done with one-hand. I used to carry this in my backpack when I also carried my GSI cookset. In recent years, I've moved to dehydrated food packs, like Mountain House, and have exclusively gone to Primus pots with the heat exchanger since all… Full review
