I use only coated aluminum for my cookware. In particular I use a JetBoil 1.5 L. pot B/C its bottom "Flux Ring" corrugated heat exchanger & neoprene side cozy really make the most efficient pot I've found. It actually heats 2 cups of water faster than my buddy's narrower original Jetboil pot beause it has a wider base.

Also the Flux Ring heat exchanger around the botttom works so well to spread heat & capture it that, when the pot has only one cup H2O left it boils around the outer edge, above the Flux Ring!

I bought a Japanese made Ti skillet. AAArrrggghh! It has a center hot spot and will NOT spread heat evenly with any of my 6 stoves. Sell it to you for $5. You pay shipping.
