    I had the EXACT same experience with my Evernew pasta pot.Kept it for boiling water only because the width of the bottom makes it efficient but now that I have downsized to a pack with smaller pockets I am back to my trusty SnoPeak 600 which is all I really need for boiling water anyway.

    I haven’t cooked in my ti pot yet, only boiled water...need to try it soon. When cooking in my aluminum mug, I have to stir quite a bit and lift if away from the flame when the contents begin to boil too vigorously. I’ll be bummed if I can’t cook in the ti pot.

    i guess an alternative is to boil water then add ingredients that don’t need to cook, remove it from the heat and let it finish rehydrating.

    what about adding a pot cozy to your kit to help this process along?

    My wife and I use a 1.7 liter pot but we cook a meal for both of us. Half of that would be more than .9, so for one person ...

    But seriously, lots of people do just fine with a 1 liter or less pot. The key is that you can get really cheap aluminum grease pots that are about .9 liters and practice with those. If it works, you are golden.

I wait about 10-15 min while the food continues to 'cook' in the cozy. For example, if your recipe calls for 7 min simmer, just double the time in the pot cozy. Nothing gets burned to the bottom of the pot.

    You can put a lot of food in a 0.9L pot. Add some olive oil & some sort of nut mix (equal parts cashews, almonds, & sunflower seeds ground up in a food processor) for extra taste & calories.
    Well said about what cooking on the trail is usually like.

    I did not read the posts since I don't have the time. What I do though is I carry a small pot and eat cold foods. However, the pot is for coffee, tea, bullion cuppa soup and cocoa. See, you get warmed up and you still get your faves.

    I have this thing about eating a hot meal...itís an important part of my experience and feeling of well being. Even in summer, I need a hot meal at the end of a hiking day.

    Half of 1.7 is less than .9, unless sleep deprivation / senility has caught and overtaken me. And my calculator.

    I cooked two packets of Ramen in my 900ML Evernew pot. It was tight, but the contents stayed in the pot and no boilovers.

    Well, you still get something hot and you're not denying yourself much except that this is more of a hot liquid. No messy pot to clean up.

    exactly.

    So .9 ought to be enough.
