thoughts on Evernew titanium pots
« on: November 27, 2017, 04:06:28 am »
I would appreciate any experience on the Evernew non-stick titanium pots. At the moment I have a GSI nonstick pot which is fine but since I am slightly changing things around equipment wise I went searching for a cup with measurements on it (am replacing my 1.5L nalgene bottle for a Klean Canteen 1.9L and then no longer have a way to measure liquids. During this search I came across Evernew in particular this cup with matching lid: http://www.backcountrygear.com/titanium-cup-570fd.html and http://www.backcountrygear.com/lid-for-titanium-cup-570fd.html. It is going to double as my waterkettle/ mug and measurer. Since I am coming to Canada/ states in 2018 I thought that I might as well update my regular cookingpot with non-stick 0.9L or the 1.3L http://www.backcountrygear.com/ti-non-stick-regular-pot-titanium-1300-ml.html for it has measurements on it as well as a pouring spout. Something I have missed in my pots until now. Am still contemplating whether to swop my MSR non stick skillet for an Evernew probably the 18cm version http://www.backcountrygear.com/evernew-ti-non-stick-frying-pan-handle.html. By replacing these items it will reduce the weight of my cooking outfit roughly by 150 to 200grams. Back home these pots and pans are twice as expensive so if I want to go for titanium this would be the right time.

But like mentioned before I no experience with (non-stick) titanium pots whatsoever so any thoughts on this would be greatly appreciated.

Not sure why no one posted.  I think the product looks to be very well built, and they're using ceramic coating instead of teflon, a huge plus.  To be safe though I would not use any metal utensils on the inside of the pot so as not to scratch the ceramic which in my guess would have to be quite thin to keep the product light, and thin means fragile.

The brand has received awards for their products, so I think it's probably a good item to have.

I have not found the coating fragile.  Mine has held up well to hard use.

I do not like their titanium pots one bit - food sticks very easily to the pot and chucked mine after one holiday.

how the heck did it get awards if the non-stick doesn't work?

So what product do you use?

I haven't got a clue - was wondering the same thing.

Have moved on to Trangia annodised steel. Use it with metho or a gasburner and will in the foreseeable future use it with a Primus Omnilite adapted to fit the Trangia for my RTW tour.

The Trangia you use is not non-stick, is that correct? Or do you have the Hardanodized aluminium that is sort of non stick and not anodized steel as you said?

If you have the Hardanodized aluminium, how well does the non stick coating work?  And what do you use to clean it if something does stick hard to it?

yep, you are right - it is the hardanodized version. I have not really put it to the test yet - corona messing things up this year. But according to all reviews I read the non-stick part works pretty well. When something is stuck to the bottom I ussually try to soak the pot for a while with slightly hot water and some soap. And if need be I use something to scrub it with like Coghlan's camp scrubber.
