The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.
Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.
Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.
Rated5out of5bymharrigfromGreat Solo PotI use home made dehydrated foods so all I need to do is boil about two cups of water. There are smaller options for that, but I like the flexibility of this kettle and it does a great job for me. I can fit my alcohol stove, windscreen, lighter, utensil, and lighter with room to spare. All in all, this is a great option for those looking to shave weight and keep your options open.

Rated4out of5byPopTopfromLightweight & WideI wanted a lightweight pot to cook single meals when thru-hiking. While I had used a Jet Boil in the past and enjoy using it despite the additional weight and trouble of a gas canister, the pot was not wide enough and too deep to stir comfortably without getting steam burns. So I went to an alcohol stove with the MRS tea kettle pot because it was wider and not as deep. It cooks fast and cools fast. I managed to burn some potatoes on the bottom that left a persistent black stain, but it's slowly coming off. I can store my whole cook system inside: aluminum wind break, lighter, alcohol stove, and spork (with the long handle hanging out of the spout rim).
My one complaint is that the handles are short when you have an open flame, so I use my bandana as a pot holder for all my meals.

Rated5out of5byspringerfeverfromThe Best I have foundHere are a couple of tips for the Titan Kettle.
Easiest way to make 1/2/3 cup markers is to invert your spoon and rest it on the bottom of the Kettle. Pour in one cup water, make a mark on spoon...same for 2 and 3 cups. After finishing, you might want to engrave your spoon with a permanent mark for the different levels. On a titanium, lexan or aluminum spoon a dremel tool works great. On a wooden spoon, a knife mark will do fine.
You can also remove the handles and invert them so that the larger part is at the top. MUCH better grip on the handles, particularly when kettle is full.
Silicon tubing makes fine handle covers and will not melt when exposed to flame. Look for it in hobby stores where they sell model gas airplanes. It is used for fuel hose. I forget the proper diameter for the Kettle handles, but you want it just a little larger than the handle itself. You just "wiggle" it over the end to the holding areas of the handles. The handles will not sit perfectly flat against the kettle, but it will be close.
Some have complained that the lid fits too tight. It is suppose to be snug ! If you will insert your spoon end into the spout and rotate it a bit it will force the lid to open easily. Give it a try. The end of the spoon can also be used to slide the Titan lid loop into an upright postion.
I use my Kettle with an alcohol stove and a cadera cone made specifically to fit the kettle. A GREAT setup for a lightweight cooking kit !!
