The 1-liter pot is great for 1 - 2 people. Foil for a lid and bandana for a pot holder allows for a light cook pot, shared bowl, shared mug if you're into that sort of thing. It is wide enough to be stable on larger supports, and can accept a small pie tin for steam-baking scones. Heats well, cleans easily, and tough. Looks as though I like it.
Also, I've used the entire set to accommodate up to 5 hikers (close friends). Perhaps there are lighter options, but for someone who does solo to small group trips, this is very versatile.
Nice.

I'd agree that this is a light, functional cookset. However, it has two flaws that keep it from being a 5:

1) The pots don't have measuring marks. This simple addition would greatly increase the convenience of cooking in these pots.

2) A second lid, specific to the smaller 1-quart pot, would be worth whatever it added to the cost. It would make it much more efficient to pack and use only the 1-quart pot for solo trips, and could be left behind when you carry both pots with the multi-fit larger lid. (And sometimes it's nice to have a lid for both pots.)Had this feature been included, I'd probably have never bought the Titan Kettle. (Oh. NOW I understand why there's no small lid...)

The pots are sized right to work with various MSR stoves; I've used them with the Windpro, Simmerlite, Superfly, and Pocket Rocket with no problems at all.

On the whole, this is the cookset I grab when I'm cooking for two; otherwise, I use my Titan kettle and mug.

excellent 1.5L pot on 09/17/2009 17:11:19 MDT Report Post Print

Been using the titan 1.5L w/out its partnered 1 L for about 6 months now on dozens of trips w/out a complaint. Its cooks for two just fine as well as being large enough for melting snow.

The 1.5L alone weighs 171g and I have a myog tyvek stuffsack that weighs 14g to contain the creosote left on the outside from its trusty companion - the bushbuddy. Not to mention that the bushbuddy stove nests within the titan 1.5 L along w/ thin poly gloves (30g) to prevent rattle and double as potholders/emergency warmth.

As for measuring marks, I added my own with a finish nail to scratch a couple hash marks. Problem solved.

Regarding its nesting 1L partner, I had little use for it so I gave it to a solo-hiking family member. I can not comment on it for I didn't use it.

All in all, the titan 1.5L is a durable and lightweight pot for two, or possibly one in the winter. Highly recommended.
