If you haven't made the decision, so far, I should say I do cook in my Vargo Titanium 750 Sierra.
The price was reasonable. It looks good, after so many meals and miles.
I think the tapered design helps optimize the alcohol stove flame, yes, up the tapered sides helps it heat up faster.
I have fried, sauted, steamed, simmered and boiled.
I can fry up a small trout in there, some I have to cut in half. Eggs and omelets are cooked in there. Couscous and add-ons cook in there. Noodles. Hearty soup.
It easily wipes clean. I use a cut up plastic mesh sold with vegetables.
I reserve the FBC freezer bag cooking for prepared freeze-dried basis meals, with add-ons.
The lid serves as a strainer. For the most part, the tiny steam hole tells me the water is about to boil or the simmering meal might need to be looked at.
Connie, thanks for the reply. I've cooked up many Big Sky trout myself....brookies of course!. In fact I have made my purchase, and I ended up getting the MSR double pot set. My son gave me a gift card, and after going to all the pack shops, that's what I got. I will be field testing the small one this weekend.
MSR 1.5 litre titanium w/ pot grabber,pricey but cleans easy and will last many years..
I used a Snow Peak 700 and it was awesome. Highly recommend
