OK, enough of economics and Apple, let’s get back to gear. Last week I took delivery of an Evernew 640ml titanium pot from backpackinglight.co.uk. It is slightly smaller than the Snow Peak Solo large pot that I have been using, both in height and diameter. The reason I bought it was, unlike the Snow Peak, the Evernew has volume markings (200ml, 400ml), longer fold out handles and a superior lid. With this pot, it is feasible to use it as both a pot and a mug, whereas the Snow Peak was slightly too large and the lack of volume marking made it a bit hit and miss for rehydration.
As you can see from the pictures above, I’ve made a cosy for it, so I can keep that all important cup of tea hot. I really like the long fold out handles. The shorter ones on the Snow Peak tend to get hot, so I have to remember to use a cloth to pick it up. On the Evernew pot, the long handles are less likely to get hot and they have a silicone sleeve as well. The handle on the lid is also much better as it stands up.
I can fit a 110 gas cartridge inside or a stove and folding spoon/knife easily. My MSR mug and cosy also fit inside if I wanted some luxury in taking a mug as well. All in all, I really like this pot and can see it being my “go to” cooking pot.
