User Review: Snow Peak Titanium Trek 700
Price Paid: $29.99
This is a great piece of cookware for the lightweight backpacker. The Snow Peak GigaPower stove fits inside with one canister. The whole thing weighs about a half-pound; a lot less than what I used to carry for stove, fuel, and cookware combined.
Being on the tall side, I don't plan to do anything but use it to boil water. It would not be the kind of thing you would fry in, for instance. But for preparing pasta or rice, or freeze dried foods, it is fine.
One thing I really like is that the lid has a hole near one edge that is great for pouring. If you are just pouring some hot water into a cup to make tea, it works fine. Or, and I just love this part, when I am cooking some ramen and want to pour out some of the water before eating, the lid holds the noodles in while the hole allows water to drain out. Fantastic!
The size is perfect for one person for most of the meals I make; I can boil enough water for the food and a cup of tea in one go.
Oh -- if you really want to save on fuel, get a Reflectix pot cozy from Anti-gravity Gear. They make a cozy for this specific pot, very nice fit. Once the water has boiled, put the pot into the cozy and the food continues to cook without any further use of the stove. For me, it works faster than Anti-Gravity Gear claims, which is a pleasant surprise. The pot cozy only adds one ounce. So the three together: this pot, the Snow Peak stove, and the pot cozy, work together as an awesome system -- lightweight, energy conserving, and very practical.
I only hate that I hardly ever take my Svea 123 into the field any more, since I got this set-up!
