Best Backpacking Cook Pots – Keep It Lightweight

Most backpackers these days are cooking simple one pot meals, freezer bag meals, or prepackaged freeze dried meals.  You do not need to waste a whole bunch of money on an entire cookset.  If you want to cook your meal in the pot rather than in a bag, opt for one of the pots listed below.  Titanium is the lightest weight material option and is a good heat conductor, however, it is the most expensive option.

Since I use the freezer bag method for my meals, especially while solo backpacking, all I need to take is a titanium mug for boiling water.  Most small gas canisters fit into these mugs which makes for a really compact and lightweight cooking kit.
