User Review: Optimus Kettle
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $18.99
Perfect for my alcohol stove.
- Handle on top where you wouldn't burn yourself
- Ideal for solo hike
- Light weight
- Not as lightweight as a titanium pot of equal size
I have been experimenting with different alcohol stoves and couldn't seem to get my boil times under 8 minutes using the Snow Peak titanium 700ml pot. So when a friend suggested a larger diameter pot may be the trick I started shopping.
Unfortunately I couldn't find a kettle (meaning large bottom) made out of titanium. So the next best was hard aluminum and I found this Optimus kettle. I have now put it through some testing and the results are great. I now have two cups of water to a boil in a little over 4 minutes with my cobalt stove.
