Unless I'm going ultralight, I always take one of these "Outback Oven" heat diffusers when doing any serious cooking on a camp stove. You can even simmer porridge on an XGK! They're light, durable, and excellent.

Trangia makes a line of 25 and 27 series stoves in both plain and non-stick HA. A bit pricey.

"I only wish I could find my favorite design (my old SIGG billy style pot) in stainless."

Have you seen the 2-qt Zebra SS billy pot? It's not the same design, though.

WOW, thanks everyone, such a wealth of information on this forum. I'm not sure but I think, for car (FJ Cruiser) camping, I'll go with stainless. For the BOB I would like to find something lighter weight, the hard anodized looks good if I can find some without teflon.

I found a relatively cheap titanium set here:


Not sure yet.

Thanks to everbody for your input. You guys are great - grin

BTW I'm not affiliated but Basegear is great, I've made 2 orders with them recently. Good prices and free shipping over $50.00 quick.

Thanks for the link Susan, great stuff. I also found a review of a homemade stove setup with the zebra billy can. Really nice setup.

I don't keep track of the mfr so much as I just walk into a place like Bass pro shop or Gander mountain and look for their cheap house brand basic anodized gear, usually on clearance or marked down. The last such item I bought was at the local Gander mountain; a basic 1 qt pot with lid in a mesh bag for $5.00 or so. It was just anodized aluminum, no non-stick at all. MSR and GSI have made anodized alloy pots and such, but the price on that stuff is way too expensive, and looks like anymore it is non-stick coated anyways.

It is getting harder to find the "just anodized without non-stick coating" items, but they are out there. You will just have to look. My search on the internet yeided nothing this morning, other than the expensive stuff. I know there's plenty of the cheaper basic kind out there, just not being advertised.

Trangia's duossal material is very nice, I like mine a lot.

My Sigg billy pots are a sentimental favorite.

If you are not carrying your gear - cast iron all the way.

Well if weight isn't an issue IMHO Cast iron beats all the rest.
With a 15" and 10" skillet and a 12", 10 and 8" Dutch ovens there is nothing you can't make. They are scratch resistant and Non-stick if properly cared for.
