In the stowed position, the small set pot, together with its lid, is inserted into a large one and packaged in a nylon cover, which is sewn with a large margin in size. If necessary, this allows you to put something else, for example, a small cutting board or some products. In addition, inside a small pot you can carry a 230 g gas bottle. Since the outer diameter of the small pot is noticeably smaller than the internal diameter of the large one, it moves freely in it and when moving the whole structure makes an unpleasant knock. You don’t put anything special into this gap, so you have to fill it with improvised means. Why it was impossible to make the size of a small pot a little more is not clear.
Both the pot and pan cover of the Snow Peak Ti-Multi Compact Cookset SCS-020T are equipped with folding handles. Moreover, the handle of the lids for convenience as pans are tilted upward relative to the bottom and equipped with a simple fixation system. The same fixation facilitates the use of caps for their intended purpose. The wall thickness of the pots and lids on the eye is about 0.4-0.5 mm.
On both bowlers of the set, large and clearly readable measuring scales in ounces and milliliters are applied. The rounded corners between the bottom and the walls of the pots provide easy cleaning of food debris and, according to the manufacturer, contribute to a more rational distribution of heat.
General impressions of the Snow Peak Ti-Multi Compact Compact Cookset SCS-020T.
The overall impression of the Snow Peak Ti-Multi Compact Cookset SCS-020T is still only positive. Lightweight, durable, made from chemically inert titanium, which is neutral to acidic and alkaline environments. Not afraid of high temperatures, allows you to use it both on a gas burner and on a fire. The volumes of both pots are well matched, which makes the Ti-Multi Compact Cookset somewhat universal. A small pot of 0.78 liters is suitable for one person, a large one for 1 liter for two. And the complete assembly will provide a group of three with hot food.
The thermal conductivity of titanium is more than half that of steel and almost ten times that of aluminum. Therefore, there were certain doubts as to whether this would affect gas consumption for the worse when heated to boiling the same volume of water on a gas burner in a titanium bowl, compared to steel or anodized aluminum. The tests showed that if the difference is present, then it is small and can be safely neglected.
The time differences when bringing water to a boil in anodized aluminum cookware were only 10-15 seconds better than in titanium, and steel generally lost to titanium 30-35 seconds. Perhaps the whole thing is the wall thickness, in the pots from the Snow Peak Ti-Multi Compact Cookset SCS-020T they are visually thinner than rivals. Or, at such volumes, the influence of the value of thermal conductivity can be ignored and ignored. At the same time, for the sake of justice, I want to note that its price and sometimes irreparable disadvantage of any titanium cookware is its price.
