Snow Peak Titanium Mini Solo Cook Set
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $60
Well built and light (5.5 oz) cook set that can be used for one or even two people. Works great for boiling water for dehydrated meals.
- Very light and sturdy
- Transfers heat well
- Works for two MH meals
- A little narrow for my MicroRocket stove
Opening the package the set comes with:
- 28oz Main Pot (3oz, 85g)
- 10oz Cup (1.7oz, 48g)
- Stove Lid (0.7oz, 20g)
- Mesh Stuff Sack (0.4oz, 11g)
Total Weight = 5.8oz, 164g
I use this set with just the pot with lid on solo trips to boil water for dehydrated meals and the whole set if someone else is coming along in case they want to make some tea in the cup. The pot holds can just hold 28oz with a bit of room to spare which is enough water to rehydrate two Mountain House meals. This is nice because then I don't have to boil water twice which takes time and fuel.
The one thing bothers me though is that the pot only just stands on top of my MicroRocket stove. It rests right on the inside of the stoves legs (but is fairly stable with water in it). While I have not had this tip over on me because I have not used the pot extensively I suspect that it might one day if I get a strong wind.
It would be nice if the stove was wider at the base but the stove is so perfect in every other aspect that I will probably end up replacing my stove with a FireMaple FMS-300T Hornet which has a tighter support arrangement and would better support the pot.
Overall it is a perfect stove it you want the lightest possible pot for a mix of solo and duo outings and just need to rehydrate some meals of make tea.

This is by far the greatest solo set I have come across. Light, durable, compact, fits on my Optimus Nova. Perfect for one, way to small to cook for two, unless you don't mind wasting fuel and waiting. I can hold a salt and pepper shaker, sponge, cheese grater, jay cloth and my Optimus folding titanium spork inside the pot.
I also love the fact that titanium does not hold heat; after boiling a pot of water you can dump it and the pot is cool to the touch.
