My review today is for the 550 ml Toaks Titanium pot. One in a series of 95mm diameter pots.
Toaks sells three different size pots in the 95 mm series—550, 650, and 750 ml with a variety of handle options. I choose the 550-ml with the longer, insulated handles. It is approximately 3.5 inches tall and 4 inches in diameter.
I use this as my solo cook kit. It's big enough to boil water for one person to use for either rehydrating a freeze-dried meal or a cup of coffee/tea (with a set of HotLips). For me, I just use it to boil water as I prefer to use my Snow Peak 450-ml double wall titanium mug for hot drinks (Toaks also sells a 450-ml double wall titanium mug). Yes, it's an extra four ounces, but it keeps liquids hot longer than a single wall, and my pot is always clean. But, one could certainly use only this pot.
The features I like about this is:
1) it's big enough to nest a 3.5-4 oz isopro canister inside. This was the main reason I chose this over the Snow Peak 700, which isn't.
3) The other thing I am particularly pleased with is that even at 550-ml, it's still big enough to contain my entire cooking stuff (minus mug). I generally carry a 4-oz fuel canister, BRS 3000T mini stove (see reviews), a Toaks folding titanium spoon, a small 2.5 inch Kershaw folding stainless steel knife and a small bic lighter. I also use a home-made windscreen from 3-4 layers of household aluminum foil (which wraps around the outside.
I never believe manufacturer's weights, so I have weighed this myself. Without the fuel cannister my complete kit weighs 8.5 oz (my knife accounts for almost 2 oz of that). That means with a full fuel can, it is just under 1 lb.
As far as quality of construction goes, I think the Japanese titanium products (like Snow Peak) have a better reputation than Chinese—but—it's just a pot. So far it has withstood two seasons without getting wacked out of round.
I bought this online directly from Toaks. I have noticed many of their items are often out of stock (like this one right now) and take some time to be replenished.
Thanks for reading!
