Summary

Nicely-sized lightweight cooking kit

Pros

  • Lightweight
  • Durable
  • Graduation marks inside

Cons

  • Pan handle

This 1100ml pot from Toaks is a nice size for 1-2 people.

I've generally taken it with me when I've been planning to cook or boil water for two people, or when open fires are prohibited and I bring the a twig stove.

I typically nest a Toaks Ti Backpacking Wood Burning Stove inside this pot (and a Fancee Feast stove and windscreen within that), and it fits perfectly with its sack.

I've used it with alcohol stoves, twig stoves, and over an open fire for about two years now.

As you would expect from any Ti pot, it heats up quickly, and cools down quickly as well.

The pot handles are long enough that they can easily be kept out of the heat for handling during the boiling/cooking process.

I don't pack measuring cups, so I appreciate the graduated measurement marks inside the pot.

I made a basic pot coozie for it (which I do for all my Ti cookware), to reduce the amount of fuel I need for some cooking.

I have not used the lid as a frying pan, and I would not be confident in doing so because the handle doesn't seem to be that reliable. It works fine for lifting and replacing the lid on the pot, but I don't think I would trust any amount of food in it as a pan.

Overall, it's one of my favorite pieces of cookware for backpacking.

Experience

I've used smaller Ti pots for solo trips over a number of years, but this is my first at this size. I've used it without issue for multiple multi-day, three-season backpacking trips to cook/boil water for 1-2 people.

Nice review, thank you. Toaks should have added the sliding lock to the pan handle, like Primus did: https://www.trailspace.com/people/vladimir-gorbunov/?content=photos&photo=img_5128
