Perfect for boiling water, making popcorn, and trail pizza. My all time favorite cookset for backpacking!
- Silicon covered handles
- Fast boiling
- Learning to adjust heat levels (titanium is thin and everything cooks/burns fast)
I have the .9L version (perfect for solo hikers). Had this set for about three years. Just charred outside from using with a wood burning stove. Mine did warp a little (pot is a little oval, I may have stored it in my camping gear box wrong) but the pan still connects to the pot and works fine if I need to close the pot/pan completely.
Took it on a 45-mile backpacking trip in the Eastern Sierras (and more recently this September a 16-mile backpacking trip, Mammoth area). I love how fast water boils (given altitude, highest we've been is 10,000 ft) but that was also the trickiest part because when it came to cooking food on the ultra thin and lightweight pan/pot meant lowering the flame because food burned. I personally don't feel like the non-stick was perfect non-stick, we still used olive oil and food stuck/burned to the pan/pot.
Past meals using this set: fried spam, boiled rice in pot, boiling water for teas, cooking freeze dried meals in the pot (I'd vacuum seal freeze dried meals to take up less space in my pack), made trail pizza with the pan (we also brought a Snow Peak Giga Torch to heat the top portion of the pizzas, crispy pepperoni!!), made some trail popcorn and ramen (we added our own spices to heat things up).
The silicone handles are a luxury (for those times you may forget to grab a towel or potholder).
In the past I've used an ultralight tea kettle (specifically for boiling water) because when I first started backpacking, I just did freeze dried meals. As I got older I enjoy a little more gourmet meals, so I invested in a titanium 1.3 L pot and a titanium frying pan (they just fit awkwardly in my backpack) so found this Evernew set and it is now my all time favorite, go-to set!

The Evernew Ti Non-Stick DX3 Pot Set is an extremely light and durable cookset with a non-stick surface. This cookset is made specifically for those backpacker who want to lighten their load without sacrificing volume and durability.
- Insulated handles
I bought this as a replacement for my Mini Trangia pot/pan set. I got the 0.9 liter size. Could not have made a better buy.
I wanted a non-stick surface for easy cooking and cleaning that wasn't teflon. This fits the bill. Both pot and pan is a silicon ceramic coating that is more durable than teflon and won't peel off with continued use. You'll still want to use non-metallic utensils. The handles are very sturdy and have a heat resistant coating that works very well. It also comes with its own stuff sack (not mesh, yea!)
This is the pot set I will be using this summer when hiking with the wife, so it does meet the needs of two people on the trail. It is the only cookset we need, even though the wife still wants to carry her GSI Halulite Kettle (she loves that thing).
I looked at and reviewed many different pot/pan combinations and found this the best to meet my needs. My Mini Trangia pot stand and burner nests neatly inside the pot with plenty of room to spare. I also carry a windscreen and utensils inside with enough room for a small bottle of fuel.
I have used it several times out on day hikes and I got to tell you I love this cookset, once I got past the price.
