The Backpacker magazine Editors' Choice award was bestowed upon the X-Pot™ in 2015 for its innovation, space-saving capability and functionality features. The real beauty of X-Cookware is its ability to collapse and nest neatly with other pieces in the series into a small disc that can easily slide into a backpack, canoe bag or camping box.
CAN THE X POT...?
Be used with a two-burner camp stove? Yes. The key is to keep the flame pattern of the burner inside the ring printed on the base of the pot (and keep the heat lower – the bases conduct heat really well).
Be used with an induction stove? No. The X-Pot alloy base is not magnetic, so induction stoves won’t work. Caution is needed with high output radiant home/van stoves – the X-Pot can quickly boil dry if not watched.
Be used on Domestic Stoves? Domestic stoves have a much higher output than backpacking stoves. If X-Cookware is used with a home stove, the flame setting should be kept low, and care should be taken to ensure that the pot does not boil dry.
Be washed in a dishwasher? No. The caustic cleanser will damage the anodization.
WHAT TYPE OF POT SHOULD I CHOOSE?
1.4 liter: Just you
2.8 liter: Two teenage boys or three people
4.0 liter: Crew of 4 to 6
The compactness of the X-Cookware (with X-Bowls, X-Mugs, an X-Kettle and an X-Brew nested inside) is unrivaled and is great for backpacking or bicycle/motorcycle touring.
