3L Pot on 09/18/2012 19:26:00 MDT Print View

Looking for suggestions for the lightest option for a 3L or so pot. Family of 5 (6 with 1 year old) family, so multiple fills and boils of the 1.9L Evernew Ti pot is getting old. We just boil water in it, and don't eat out of it.

Open country has a 4L aluminum pot. I've owned one for almost 20 years. Its charred and blackened (great on the fire!), dented, ugly but still in top working order. My buddies and I used this pot all over the West, now its for family camping. Its lighter than listed spec but I can't recall weight.

Open Country 4 qt on 09/19/2012 00:12:21 MDT Print View

I like the open country idea. Very cheap and probably an ounce heavier than the evernew Ti one. I have a hard time spending $100+ on a pot to boil water. We'll see how this one stands up to abuse.

Thanks for the idea!

If the specs are correct, it is about 1 ounce heavier...
Thin aluminium does dent easily but for boiling water who cares?

Have you thought about carrying two stoves and two pots? When the group gets to be 4 or more, that's when I start thinking about a larger kitchen. One giant pot will take a long time to boil, while two stoves with two smaller pots will be much faster. This option makes more sense if you are cooking different things, rather then just boiling water for freezer bag cooking, but the faster speed might be useful.

ALUMINUM COOK POT... on 09/19/2012 07:48:16 MDT Print View

I took 9 Scouts on an 80-mile trek this summer with two pots, both Open Country aluminum. One was a very old 6-qt and one a new 4-qt... Check out for the 4-qt. Pre-blackened and $12.95... hard to beat. We also used pot cozies from relectix material to improve our fuel efficiency. Hope this helps...
