    I have an Evernew 1.3 which I only used once. I use the 900ml as my standard pot and I need nothing more. If you want the 1.3 I'd be happy to sell.

    Yes please.

    I don’t s’pose a half chewed bone and a packet of Good Boy Doggy Drops will do in exchange? :cigar:

    Drop me a line with you balanced, fair and irresistible proposal and I’m sure you will have solved my problem :)

    Thank you.

    Hopefully Dovidola has my solution. We’re agreed on a packet of Schmackos, a floating Kong and a strangely brown tennis ball.

    I’m bleddy purring, mate, this chop is fantastic.

    Burgers with Cornish yarg and skewers with chicken chorizo and pepper to start with.

    Just wondering... what are the benefits/differences of ti over aluminium? My pot sets don't seem to be much different in weight. I recall Ti gives a more localised heat, but I guess when boiling water it doesn't matter.

    Especially given the cost differences - are there enough overriding benefits to merit a change?

    Weight for weight, ti is reportedly stronger than aluminium; otherwise, I don't think it has any great benefits.

    I'd say aluminium is better to cook on given is higher heat conductivity.

    Do you cook with aluminium pans at home? Annodised aluminium pans are possibly the best cookware wherever you use them. You must take care when cleaning though, using a scourer can damage the annodised coating. This in turn exposes the aluminium compounds which can leech into your food/water, and lead to corrosion. Non stick coatings also have this problem whatever the metal composition of your pots and pans. Titanium is corrosion free,will not degrade, is 45% lighter than steel and is stronger than aluminium. Cooking with titanium is no different than with aluminium, you need to control the stove heat output and watch your pot.

    Titanium nano particles & dust also pose health risks..

    Pray tell how this dust and nano particles are generated whilst in use? Titanium dioxide used in foodstuffs can be harmful but we are not talking about additives to food and cosmetics.

    Thanks for the replies. I'll probably save some money and go for anodised alu for some larger pots. My little alu esbit is a personal fave, and was looking out for something larger along those lines. Cheers.

    Just letting you know as i work with military grade Ti and it is one of the *bad* metals we use when it comes to the dust that comes off it during manufacture.
    Lids on pot, metal spoon on pot, scourer on pot etc..
    But it's probably not enough to do harm in the quantities of wildcamp use.
