Excellent solo kit for ultralite simple cooking.
- Can nest a small fuel canister or micro stove inside
- Excellent heat transfer
- Small for the gourmet
I have used my set for many miles of hiking and many nights of camping and preparing meals. Overall this set is perfect for the overnight solo or the extended trip. =I have used this set exclusively for years and it shows absolutely no wear, and continues to provide excellent performance in all conditions.
- The large pot is 26 oz capacity
- The small pot is 18 oz capacity
- and the pan/lid is 14 oz capacity
I do not use the "pan" for anything other than a lid, for which it performs admirably. I suppose one could use the lid for a plate, but I use an Orikaso folding bowl for that.
The two pots are handy for me when preparing tea in in the small one and boiling water in the large one for noodles, dehydrated meals, etc.,
If you are a trailside gourmet, you may want to eschew this kit for something larger.
At 7.1 ounces, I can carry it along with my 1 ounce alcohol stove, my .5 ounce windscreen, my .5 ounce spoon and my 8 ounces of fuel and come quite close to just one pound, while still maintaining a complete cook set. I sometimes elected to carry just the large pot and lid making my kit even lighter.
When paired up with my Soto OD1R Micro Regulator stove, I get a similar weight result with perhaps 2 oz. more for the fuel container.
These pots are sturdy. I would take some extraordinary pressure to force them out of shape or dent them.
When comparing this with my aluminum set, the heat transfer is very similar. The titanium seems to heat up quickly and efficiently.
A super tough, lightweight choice for the solo hiker. I think the solo hiker will appreciate the pure function, simplicity and reliability this kit provides.

This is a terrific little set of cookware. I bought it to go with my Snow Peak LiteMax stove and it is a perfect compliment. The small size and light weight make it a perfect choice of both day hikes and longer trips.
Most often I use it on day hikes if I want something with a wider opening than the Snow Peak 700 mug/pot, plus it has the added benefit of the little fry pan. That said, the caveat is that the lid/fry pan is pitifully small for serious frying (don't expect to fry a 12" trout in it!)--but it is a nice option to have should you want to make a small bannock or pancakes. It's made of titanium, so it is not non-stick, so use oil if need be.
I haven't done any serious cooking with this set; mostly to boil water and make oatmeal. The three pieces essentially make a mug, cook pot, and lid (for the large pot) or the lid can be used for a fry pan.
It's well-made and for what it is, seems pretty sturdy with reasonable and not abusive use. I've had it for about a year now and I expect to be enjoying it for years to come.
