    I would like to know what method QiWiz uses to clean the pot and whether or not you offer a titanium pot scraper?

    There are lots of silicon pot scrapers available cheap. The ones the size of a credit card are perfect for hiking. They do a real nice job of cleaning your pot without scratching. I scrape the pot, lick the scraper, then drop it in the next boil.

    The last time I cooked pasta in my pot it stuck on so hard that my Lexan spoon was totally ineffective at removing it.Wound up having pasty coffee the next morning,brought the pot home and scraped it all out with a metal spoon.
    I will likely have at least a titanium spoon available next time to scrape with.

    This is the one I purchased and seasoned it with canola oil. Fried eggs using canola oil.

    TY.

    I dont know much about heat distribution, how would this work on an alchy stove? I have a cool pot support so the pan wouldn’t be directly on the stove.

    Give it a try using your pot support, hold onto the handles, if it looks like it's getting to hot and wants to burn....raise the pot/pan

    I choose freezer bag, because it's easy and I don't need long time to clean any pots.

    You are absolutely right. That is why I do not use plastic containers in a microwave oven even when it says: "microwave safe". People should be thankful to you for the information.

    I cook in my pot. As pointed out previously you can boil your food to higher temps for a longer time giving more options for food choices. I minimize cleanup by only boiling at the begining when still soupy so nothing sticks and then it goes in a pot cozy to finish. Also I have an anodized pot with heat exchanger. I use an eCHS alcohol stove.

    I prefer to cook in my pot. I have a silicon scraper to get all the last bits (which I eat), and tend to make the meals on the thin side to get more water. On long trips, I cut down on packaging waste by packing most items in bulk, i.e. one big bag of oats, a big bag of rice or potatoes, bags of dehydrated veggies, etc., and make meals on the go.

    Meals are just added to the boiling water and left to soak. I never put a full pot of food on the heat - just about guaranteed to scorch.

    For shorter trips freezer bags are fast and easy and the waste is limited. Depending on my mood and the preferences of anyone I might be cooking with I might go either way.

    For longer trips with multiple re-supplies, freezer bags are too much work and too much waste.
    I'm not lost. I'm exploring.

    This makes a great deal of sense.I like everything about the pot except the cleaning.The only thing I like about the Freezer bag is the convenience.But I have switched to the FB because it makes for one less chore to do at night,plus it makes LNT easier.(Yeah,I know all about drinking the wash water,no thanks.)Now that I have a Trail Designs Fkeg with Caldera Cone and a Zelph Starlyte XL plus all my accessories for under 10 oz there's just no turning back now.

    I've done freezer-bag cooking since before it had a name. But, I have evolved into cold soak freezer bag "cooking". And I actually haven't used freezer bags in about 15 years. Those real thin bread and storage bags work just fine.
