About Me "When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely in your thoughts advanced to the state of science, whatever the matter may be."
Sir William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) 1883

Re: responses
So you boil 36 oz in the morning and in the evening. 36 U.S. fluid ounces is 1065 ml. With a wide pot (you mentioned the 1.3L pot) and a windscreen and the stove flame at medium, you will burn arou...

Re: Alu
The aluminium is on the outside and in any case, it has a solid, impervious oxide layer (as has the titanium)

Re: Reinventing the Ti pot
Out of curiosity I bought one of these. The Al coating on the base has a high friction surface, so the pot is very stable on a stove like the Gnat (FMS-116T). I don't believe the coating has an...
