Titanium is a wonderful material for the trail, it’s light but strong and heat moves around within its structure well so it boils super fast, its safe to say I am a big fan.
The MSR Titan Kettle is an exceptionally well made piece of cookware and it’s the small details that separate it from the competition.
The dimensions of the MSR Titan Kettle are a great balance between a solo cup and a small bowl as you can take a drink from it but due to its size its big enough for a solid meal too. The well fitting lid with pouring spout make it functional as a tea pot as well.
The folding handles sit neatly against the body but do not rattle and when opened the grip is large enough to be comfortable when in the hand.
The volume of 850ml can accommodate a gas canister and a small folding stove so your entire cook system takes on a miniscule footprint.
The lid fits very well and is held securely, a testament to MSR quality and something that is reassuring when you are on the trail as your kit within the Titan Kettle will be kept from spilling everywhere. However if you are storing dried food inside there is a hole where it can escape through via the pouring spout but this is solved by using a bag.
The lifting top handle has a locking feature and would appear to be slightly insulated from the heat. Titanium is great for boiling water and basic cooking but as this material develops hot spots it is not so good at cooking anything that requires specific control over temperature.
Highly Recommended an amazing bit of kit!
