Snow PeakTrek 900 Titanium Cookset

This compact titanium set is the way to go for ultralight backpackers.

The Snowpeak Trek 900 Titanium Cook Set is a lightweight, two-piece cook set that includes a pot, a lid/frying pan combo and a carrying case. Corrosion-resistant titanium is super lightweight and has superior strength compared to steel. The pot holds 30 oz of fluid (approximately 1 qt) and weighs only 3.8 oz. The lid doubles as a frying pan (5” x 1 ½ ”, 8 oz capacity). Each piece has a folding handle that tucks neatly away. The Snow Peak Giga Power Stove and fuel canister stow nicely inside the cookware for easy transport and storage. Snow Peak's focus on nesting cook sets makes this an exceptional build-as-you-go system for backpackers.

Perfect Size

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This cook set is the perfect size for cooking for two people. Like all titanium cookware it boils water very quickly, however when you're cooking real food like rice you have to make sure to stir a lot so the food doesn't burn. Its very durable, I've dropped the pot too many times to count and haven't dented it yet. The only gripes i have about it is that the handle for the frying pan randomly comes off which is not ideal when your trying to pour hot food into a bowl. The other is that when stored in the carry sack the pan makes a lot of noise when walking and falls off the top of the pot but you can easily fix that with some shoe string. Overall a very good product

works admirably

Loved my experience cooking out of this pot. I used it to boil water for several out of pot meals, and then also cooked a handful of meals in it on the stove as well. The pot is much bigger than you realize, took me a few gos to get used to adding the right amount of water without overdoing it. its VERY lightweight, and its pretty damn durable as well. my only gripe isn't really that big of a deal: the lid/frying pan that comes with it really doesn't clamp down or sit very well on top of the pot, but the it stays on there well enough to keep the heat inside while you are cooking.

Lite compact cook set

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I got this item for the trek 900 no need for the frying pan. However could use in the future. Great to use for boiling all the water needs in one go with out the metal taste. Easy to clean up. The minus is be careful the folding handles can get a little hot.

Dinner for two

Love the pic Corey!

Paint it black

Pro Tip: lightly sand and paint black with high temp BBQ paint to increase efficiency.

Super light and pack down small to fit in your pack just perfectly. I can even stuff the fuel into it to save space while I'm backpacking. Sometimes the lid doesn't stay on but overall solid cooking set.

Very versatile

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It's big enough for a Solo Wood Stove. It's very lightweight. It's a great gear for any type of situation. Very versatile. Never leave home without it.

Light, Good Pot

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

This pot is good for boiling water, and not too bad for cooking a little bit of food, but like others have said, should be stirred a lot to avoid burning. Also, the lid is pretty useless when it comes to cooking in my opinion.

how does it fit?

how does it fit?

Does the 700 nest inside this? From the pic it looks like it. I am looking for a slightly larger pot to go with my 700.

Snow Peak Spectacular

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I decided to purchase this after using a JetBoil Flash System with the optional 1.5L JetBoil Cookpot, but deciding ultimately that the aforementioned setup was not only excessive, but heavy for thru-hiking (it was my first thru-hike, give me a break).

Anyhow, I ultimately became infatuated with this pot after just a very short time of use. It does an excellent job of resisting buildup of food offal (burnt items in particular), and staining is no problem whatsoever. While its design does not particularly rapid cooking like the JetBoil system does, the pot does a suitable job of heating and boiling just about anything that you can throw at it. It does help to stir certain items occasionally, as the convection ability of the pot with stoves (at least with the MSR Micro Rocket, from my acquaintance) is not the greatest, but it is more than adequate for most things.

One notable qualm that I had with the set (though not enough to downrate it a whole star) was that of the lid. A good idea in theory, my participation with the lid was a singular and spectacularly disastrous occasion, something I have never since re-attempted, as the design and construction seem to be something out of the Twilight Zone. I believe that perhaps if one had oil or grease it would be possible to cook, say, an egg or two in the scrambled format, but nothing else.

All in all, this is a fantastic pot, and even when a long cook session is finished, the handles remain cool enough to hold without being too hot or too finicky to deal with. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a piece of cookware to essentially build and complete their backcountry kitchen set.

*Just a quick note, the SP Titanium Double Wall Cup 600 WILL fit inside this pot*

Size comparison

SP Trek 900 Titanium Cookset v. Nalgene bottle



The Trek 900 goes up to about the 28oz mark on the Nalgene bottle, with a diameter that is roughly 1/4 larger than that of the Nalgene, just for those who are looking for a rough mental idea of what the size of this is, if my picture doesn't adequately convey.

Great pot set

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I got this b/c its diameter is designed so that you can put an 8 oz. fuel cannister inside the pot and close the top. This pot set works well with the Crux folding stove. The folding stove [not the "lite" model] will fit under the gas cannister and the whole cookset is then contained in one mash bag. The handles stay pretty cool so you can take it off the Crux stove without padding. The top cup/skillet/cover also stays cool on the Crux stove so removing the top is easy. The cup/skillet handle is sturdy and latches securley.



The top can be used as a cup or a small fry pan. If the top were slightly deeper the pot set could be designed to hold the larger 16 oz. fuel cylinders. Maybe Snow Peak can re-design the top and send out a message to owners that they can buy the deeper top separately to upgrade the set to one which will accept the 126 oz fuel cylinders. I'll buy one!

Great pot set.

Lid Options

I bought this pot because my bush buddy ultra is designed to fit inside. I found a great lid to replace the heavy and relatively useless skillet at four dog stove. Pot, stove, and cozy come in at 9.4 oz.

Lid Options

beware the lid!

    The pot is fantastic, no question! The major gripe I have is the idiotic lid construction. Why would you ever design a pan where you have to squeeze the handle to keep it in place?! If you ever try to cook with it, or use it as a frying pan, you WILL be sorry. Sooner or later, there will be a moment where you aren't squeezing it quite tight enough, and the hinge will collapse, leaving your food all over. All they have to do is switch this design to the most intuitive one, that every other pan uses (where you squeeze to unlock it), and this is a 5-star set.

    The lid is supposed to go on upside down.

    Hello, Is it possible to use the fying pan...

    Hello,
    Is it possible to use the fying pan to cook two items at once : one in the 900 ml bowl and one in the pan ?

    Like this picture : http://www.vargooutdoors.com/images/boiler%20md.jpg

    Hello,
Is it possible to use the fying pan...

    Kinda. The pan will fit in, but not snug (handle thing gets in the way. If you really want to double cook, get the 1400 and the bowl, they fit in snug. Also, you can get fourdogstoves to make you a custom ti lid so you can have the pan (or bowl) covered while you cook.

    But it's just my opinion, but the handle on the pan is not super secure (nor insulated). I'd totally use evernew, but everyone makes stoves that slide into the snowpeaks.

    Quality gear

      I'm a titanium junkie, and love the Snow Peak line. The only issue with the 900 is the lid. I also have the SP Mini-solo Combo, and love the lid from that set. I can't imagine using the 900's lid as a little pan, but I also am mostly a water boiler. In order to reduce heat transfer, I made a set of pot insulators out of Reflectix insulation. Virtually no weight, and from my one-time test, I reduced heat loss by 40%. In this picture, the 900 and 900 lid is closest, with the Mini-solo and lid in the background (the Mini-Solo nests in the 900, and the 900 nests in the windscreen). Both are in their insulators.

      Does the Trek 700 fit inside the Snow Peak...

      Does the Trek 700 fit inside the Snow Peak Trek 900 Titanium Cookset?

      Best Answer

      Yes, it does. They're made to nest together if you need them to. Diameter on 700 is 4.2" and the 900 is 5".

      Too Narrow

        This may be a good buy if you are an occasional backpacker, but if you live outdoors for your job or because you can this is too narrow to cook in every night, you just have to be too careful when stirring and it is easy to burn food. Clean up is a cinch but I'll skip this for a wider pot that weights maybe an ounce heavier.

        The dimensions are listed in the description. You shouldn't penalize a product for something that you should have been aware of before purchasing it. Sorry, but that's your own fault.

        I totally disagree, vagabond. The point of a review, among other things, is to translate what the features of a product are to their practical consequences. Yes, you can read that this pot is narrower than others, but it may not be obvious to a prospective buyer what that means and what the consequences may be. Here, the consequence is, in my opinion, poor performance.

        Trek 900 inside Trek 1400 w/ nested kit

        Trek 900 nested in a Trek 1400, then an 8oz canister in that, along with a Snow Peak Litemax and a Brunton canister stove stand. 2 Snow Peak sporks will also fit in between the 900 and the 1400. Lids for both pots fit on easily.
