Stoic Ti Pot Set
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $40
Excellent, for the price.
- Somewhat flimsy (small pot)
I picked this pot set up on steepandcheap for $40, amazing price considering what you're getting relative to other similar products on the market. Similar Snow Peak and MSR 2-pot sets would cost at least $100, and probably wouldn't have the non-stick coating.
First, the build quality of this set is pretty great. I picked the pots because of the simplicity. I like the wrap-around folding handles more than a removable pot holder, I like the simple shape, no plastics, no-frills design. Titanium and non-stick are a bonus.
The set seems very well constructed, the 1.3L pot nests inside the 1.6L pot, and they share a lid, which fits well on both, and includes several drain holes for draining ramen or whatever. Nice touch found on MSR pots. The non-stick seems durable enough, and I plan on not using metal utensils on the finish. The 1.6L pot is a bit more rigid than the 1.3L, but both seem strong enough.
Perfomance-wise, they are similar to any titanium pot. Not as even heating as aluminum, but light, strong, corrosion resistant. Nothing out of the ordinary.
The set comes with the two pots, one lid, a small mesh bag that covers the 1.3L pot, and an outer mesh back for the whole set. The 1.3L pot will fit in the 1.6 with the small mesh bag on, in order to protect the finish of the larger pot. A nice touch.
