GSI Outdoors Halulite Tea Kettle

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I have had this kettle for five years. For its size, it is the lightest and most durable piece of cookware I have. I have consolidated my cookware many times over the years but this always makes the cut. I use it, a stove, camp mug, and a pour-over reusable coffee filter. That's it. The halulite kettle transfers heat incredibly well and allows for a quick boil. It is very durable and surprisingly lightweight. The kettle spout is ideal for pouring into dehydrated meals or pouring over coffee. It… Full review

MSR Big Titan Kettle

rated 3 of 5 stars Nice big pot...but flawed. When I spend $80 on a pot I expect it to do everything perfect. I will say that I am a fan of MSR and have their stainless steel pots and really like them. But the Big Titan Kettle had one BIG flaw in my opinion. First, why did I buy the Big Titan? I wanted a water boiler...that's it. I wanted to be able to boil large amounts of water, which it of course does. It is the quality you'd expect from MSR except that it drips so much when you pour. If you really concentrate,… Full review

Stansport Aluminum Percolator Coffee Pot 9-Cup

rated 4.5 of 5 stars What a campfire coffee pot should be: Usable over a fire. Also works great on a stove, even at home. Ideal for those who like plain old perked coffee. I have owned this coffee pot for several months, and used it several dozen times. It has held up fine, though it might not last forever.  It works perfectly, over a fire, or on the stove at home. It perks. You can see it's perking; it doesn't boil over. The main bail handle is very nice. It is nice to have one (and so many pots don't anymore), as… Full review

Open Country Aluminum Covered Kettle - 2 Quart

rated 5 of 5 stars Can't imagine a better cook pot for the price. I have used this pot on pretty much all my backpacking trips (several per year) for about five years, almost always over an open fire or twig stove. It is made of very light aluminum, and has held up very well. The exterior is permanently black, and it came to me slightly mashed so the lid requires some pressure to be seated perfectly and a sort of flick (I use a fork in the ring) to get up when it is. I love this pot: It is very lightweight It is quick… Full review

Optimus Kettle

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I have commented earlier; this is an excellent product. I have used the .5 liter Trangia teapots for years and very successfully, but this is a better design and holds more water at .7 liters. The Trangias tend to pour with difficulty if the lid fits securely...air cannot get in to allow pouring smoothly. The new Optimus has an air vent and the pouring spout does not drip. This is a nice product; you will not be disappointed. A picture of the kettle is displayed at the beginning of the promotional… Full review

Open Country 2 Quart Non-Stick Kettle

rated 4 of 5 stars This is a big, light pot with a non-stick surface. It comes with a lid. Has a great bail that snaps into three positions. This is a big 2 quart pot.  Even though I went out to my kitchen and measured it out before buying I was still surprised by the size when I received it. Even though the measurements were included... I was surprised. I guess I want a pot the size of a cup that can hold more than the outer size dictates. This would probably be a GREAT pot for someone cooking for more than one… Full review

Optimus Kettle

rated 4 of 5 stars I've found this to be the only pot I need when "hot camping" on backpack trips. For comparison purposes, I'm a lightweight (under 20lb pack w/food for 3 days and fishing gear - FSO weight under 25lb) and will often "cold camp", taking no stove or foods that need cooking (unless I'm fishing, too). I've been helping people find the joys of the wilderness since I was in Scouts 40+years ago and have led beginners and beginner groups on successful backpacking trips in the Sierra Nevada for years. In… Full review

Open Country Aluminum Covered Kettle - 2 Quart

rated 5 of 5 stars Open Country 2 quart aluminum pot. I bought this pot a few years ago and it quickly became one of my favorite pots. It is a simple aluminum pot with a good lid. It has an efficient, relatively wide shape so it captures heat well. The shape also makes it good for packing other items inside. There is no nonstick coating to be damaged. It is very reasonably priced at about $15. It isn’t much heavier than titanium. The aluminum conducts heat well. The 2 quarts is a good capacity, although more than… Full review

GSI Outdoors Halulite Tea Kettle

rated 5 of 5 stars Great pot, but you can cook in it too. Read in another review that you can cook in it and wanted to be sure before I took it on the trail for that purpose. Because it has a very wide lid you can actually cook in this pot. I made one of my favorite meals, Fettuccini with Salmon. I used the Lipton Knorr Pasta Sides Alfredo and a foil packet of Smoked Salmon purchased from the grocery store. The recipe calls for 2 cups of water and the total contents just fit into the pot. I cooked it over a Trangia… Full review
