Versatile enough to be a pot, mug or bowl, this lightweight and strong titanium kettle complements the Titan Cookset perfectly. The Titan Kettle holds .85 liters of liquid and comes with a tight-fitting lid and drip-free spout for ease of pouring.

This little kettle is perfect for the soloist. Will hold almost 3 cups of water which is perfect for most backpacker foods needing only 2 cups. It has a handle...but be careful...the handle gets very hot. The best thing is that the little 3.8 oz Snow Peak fuel bottle fits right inside for easy storage.

I have used this kettle for a number of years. It is a superb piece of durable, minimum weight, multi-purpose cooking gear. Highly recommended.



Modifications I have found useful:

Paint the exterior of the kettle with heatproof black stove/grill paint. This results in more efficient heat transfer and reduced fuel consumption.

Drill out the hole in the lid to 1/4 inch diameter, which helps to limit unexpected boilovers.



Caveat: As noted in the prior review, the handle can get hot after long heatings, so be careful when picking it up.

This thing is light and compact. I bring it everywhere I go. Hell I use the thing at home to cook sometimes. I use it to melt snow, cook dinner and as a cup afterwards.

Used to own this kettle
And I loved it. It got stolen and I decided to try a Snowpeak kettle, but I regret not buying this one again. I like the locking lid and it was the perfect size...

Just the right size
This kettle is the perfect size for the solo backpacker or small groups. Light and small. 0.85 liter capacity. I've marked mine on the inside in 1/2 cup increments to the 3-cup level. An 8oz. fuel can stows inside the kettle perfectly to save room.

Very Light
Takes very little room in my pack and can carry both my fuel and stove inside. Not many bells and whistles but it gets the job done and is perfect for someone who simply needs a lightweight backpacking pot/cup/bowl.
