Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is definitely a keeper Titanium equipment is super-light, but also expensive. This is one piece of Ti cookware that's worth it. This is best suited for cooking about 2 cups (maybe 2 1/2 cups) or less, which is a good size for ramen noodles, oatmeal, rice, spaghetti (break the noodles in half!), etc., for 1-2 persons -- which also means you can use it as a single pot, and then leave the rest of the pots and pans at home. It's also perfectly sized for using with alcohol or "soda can" stoves. Tip: You'll need pack a pot clamp or lifter with you when using this - the thin wire handles will get too hot to grab with your bare hands.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Leaves My Pack After searching high and low for the "perfect" solo backpacking pot I finally gave this one a try. For the size to weight ratio it can't be beat. The only other one that came close was the REI/Evernew Pasta Pot at 1L however the lid on that piece was flimsy, bent and never stayed on. With this pot, the lid stays nice and tight so I can store all of my cooking gear inside it and it won't come out in my pack At 4oz, it's one of the lightest on the market as well. I use this with an alcohol or woodburning stove and an MSR folding spoon and my total cook it is ~6oz! It's durable after numerous trips and shows almost no signs of wear. You won't regret getting one.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A few tricks for the MSR kettle As a solo minimalist, I really like this puppy! It has enough useful capacity (3cups/750ml) for me, myself and I. The handles do get a bit hot, but are easily handled with the pliers of my ever-present multi-tool. A few tricks I picked up: Note that there are three rows of three indentations on the inside of the kettle (where the rivets connect to the handle). These rivets are strategically placed at the one, two and three cup levels. I've also found out that an 8 oz. MSR ISOPRO cannister fits perfectly and rattle free inside the kettle with room to throw in a couple of other small items. It's not absolutely PERFECT but it's pretty close. Since there is no 4.5 rating, I give this little gem a 5.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great kettle Tested this kettle on an electric stove and it performed as was expected. The lid handle locks in the up position when using so you don't burn yourself and folds flat when not in use. The handles do NOT get hot at all contrary to what I've read in other reviews. The lid fits snug into the kettle but comes off easy enough if you hold the handles while lifting off the lid. Holding the handles while lifting off the lid will help prevent spillage. Steam escapes through a hole in the lid which keeps boiling overflow from occurring. Small propane canister fits inside the kettle for space efficiency. Practically weightless. Great product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product The kettle is a quality product. I like it in all ways except for the following. I like to repackage my dehydrated food in lighter, smaller ziplock bags. They pack easier into a bear can. I use my kettle to heat water and then add the food into the kettle, sometimes let it simmer for a little bit to aid rehydration, and eat it right out of the pot. It works great with the contents of a backpacker food package for 2 people as long as it calls for only 2 cups of water. Anything over that doesn't fit. If it accommodated another 1/2 cup of water, it would be perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from for realz i carry a big backpack, with a whole lot of things inside of it. some things i love, some things i don't. i have used the .85L Titan tea for almost four years, and it has gained a permanent place in my backpack, and in my heart. as i write this review, i imagine losing or breaking my MSR titan tea kettle, and it saddens me to the very marrow of my bones. over the years, it has boiled water for me, simmered dinner for me, kept my tea warm for me. it has been used over alcohol, gas and woodburning stoves, and still looks brand new. totally worth the money, duuuude

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ultralight master pot This baby is part of my ultralight kit. It's really hard to imagine beating it. Between this and the pocket rocket, your system is so light, that even though it's not quite as efficient as the "system" stoves, your weight savings is so great that I calculate it would take 3 people more than a week of continuous backpacking without resupply before its worth using a "system" stove. I have had my kettle for about 5 years, and cooked with it over 50 days. It's truly awesome and does everything you could want for boiling water. I don't cook food in it though - I do mostly dehydrated food on the trail.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best I have found Here 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 !!

i have pocket rocket stove and interested in this pot but will it (not the micro but the standard) and a small msr fuel canister fit inside? and maybe a small lighter and box of matches? also does it come with a mesh sack or something to keep it together?

Asked by: linus72
The Titan Tea Kettle can fit the MSR PocketRocket Backpacking Stove without the case. It can also fit either the 100 gram or 227 gram isobutane fuel canisters. Having said that you cannot fit a fuel canister and the PocketRocket inside the Titan Tea Kettle at the same time. A lighter or small book of matches can fit with either the stove or fuel canister. A mesh carry case is not included with the kettle.

Will 100g and 230g Jetboil Fuel Canisters fit inside?

Asked by: High Sierras
The 230 canisters actually will NOT fit in the MSR Titan with the lid on. They are 1/8" too tall. Since this pot doesn't come with a stuff sack, this is a problem. Why would MSR design a kettle that won't hold a standard 8 oz (230g) canister with the lid on?

Does the lid lock into place? I'm thinking for using it over fires and threading a stick through the top.

Asked by: Ken the Pilgrim
The lid on the MSR Titan Tea Kettle fits tightly, but is not locking. Therefore, if you were to attempt to use it as you described there is a high likelihood that the lid would separate from the kettle.
