Thx for the offer on the ti-skillet, but just bought myself a new trangia UL hard anodised 1.75 l pot, weighs only 4.2 ounces. I've been experimenting with it and i'm not quite sure what' happening with this new pot. With my alky, well one of'em <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />, i get a small boil going, it makes a sound i've never heard when boiling. Sounds more high pitched and also i don't get a real 'rolling' boil going either.
Also tried it on my msr canister stove, think it's called a simmerlite, and the pot discolored in the center, it now has a rainbow color center spot.
I've noticed the material is thinner than older trangia 1l non-stick pot, with which i get a much better boil going, using the same setup. Prob smaller diameter and more even heat distribution does the trick.
I've also been experimenting with a food can, holds 900ml and to my big supprise, i'm getting the best boils going in these things. Takes longer than any of my other pots, but it's the strongest. Probaby coz it steel and the smaller diameter. Anyome use something like that for cooking pot ? Also it's quite light. The hole shebang, pot-lid--stove-potstand-primer pan-windscreen-potgrip weighs 124 grams.
And to my big shame i bought myself a new canister stove. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif" alt="" /> Just couldn't resist the very tempting offer on the brunton crux. But isn't it the coolest stove around. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif" alt="" />
