I have a bit of GSI stuff I like, but for one of my stoves, which I'll be using more, the Pinnacle Soloist pot is a bit narrow at 4.25" diameter.  I've heard lots of good things about Snow Peak, so I looked at them and the 0.9L pot (part of the Trek 900 set) is 4.75" diameter, and it looks like that 1/2 inch could make all the difference as far as stability and safety.  It's 0.2L less than my Soloist, but that should be OK.  This is for solo trips, so anything around 1.0L is fine.

Any other suggestions?

Do you cook or only boil? GSI has an anodized kettle for boiling that's about as wide as you can get for BPing, very light, and pretty cheap.

Yeah, I have the kettle, but sometimes cook rather than boil, so I'm looking for more of a pot than a kettle.

I have the Evernew Ti. non-stick .9 liter pot. 4.8 oz for pot and lid, Dimensions (HxD): 2.5x5.4 in /6.4x13.6 cm

I actually wanted the un-coated version because all I do is boil, but it's been a great pot. Also has a built-in spout for pouring which strangely is my favorite feature.

That "new" pot is causing lots of problems.

If you're using an alcohol stove you need a pot about 6" wide.  That's why the tea kettle style kettles work so well.  I've got an old 1 liter pot that's wide and low and works great as well.  Problem is, it's stainless steel.  As in heavier that Al or Ti.

Maybe you could get a heavier pot for trips when you know you want to cook.

Actually for "real cooking" hard anodized aluminum is a superior cooking pot in my experience. I love my Ti kettle but for light weight and boiling water: where even heat distribution isn't an issue.

Btw: people differ on what they mean by "cooking" so what are you intending to "cook"? Might help with the selection of the right tool out of the wide selection available.

shaunkad, I don't have any Ti at the moment, but am open to the idea.  It has advantages and disadvantages compared to Al as HSF mentions.

Now that I think of it, cooking would be more things like rice and fish.  Fish would work better in a pan, whereas things like rice (which is essentially boiling water with something in it) could work in either, but I'd want a lid to save time and fuel.  I have a small MSR skillet, but I forget which one.

I'm really thinking about a pot at this point rather than a pan.

The Evernew pot Tigger mentioned looks good.  Something about 5" should be enough.  My GSI Soloist pot is 4.75 tall, and if I lay it sideways it looks like it makes enough contact with the burner arms to be stable.

The stove with has more or less precipitated this need is the Optimus Nova, which has a larger open area in the middle of the burner than a typical canister stove.

My canister stoves work fine with the smaller diameter pots.

I wouldn't cook fish in Ti.  I have a Snow Peak Ti pan with some anti-stick coating, but I wouldn't cook fish on it without a whole bunch of butter.

BL, that's why I have the MSR aluminum skillet.  Judging from the specs on their site it's the smaller Quick Skillet.

How hard is it to find Evernew stuff in stock?  I'm looking for the 0.9L Ti pot and 400ml double wall cup with cover, and dang, hardly anyone carries them and those who do are generally out of stock - I can't find the 0.9L pot anywhere.

Is this a cyclical issue with manufacturing and/or shipping, or is this normal for Evernew?

Evernew availability comes and goes.  They might only do a small number of production runs a year based on estimated demand.

There is definitely a dearth of Evernew pots this time of year. It happened last year too. REI had little in the way of cookware recently and I think some of their ti pots are Evernew branded to REI. I guess it is like other outdoor sports, most folks have their kit by now this year and the retailers won't restock some things until Feb or March?

but the .9L coated ti Evernew seems to be available at Trail Designs, the caldera cone folks...

I got my 1.3L unlined Evernew pot there and that pot has gone along on hundreds of overnighters now and has served us very well. I'm using it for a tea kettle right now on our home stove while girlfriend finds a tea kettle that suits her. 1.3L is good for duos.
