If you are a backpacker who goes on shorter trips you might prefer basic pots and pans that doesn't take up to much space in your pack. Perhaps you are chasing grams and are after the lightest gear on the market. Or you might cook for bigger groups and need something more rugged and scratch-resistant.

Primetech, your best cookware

 

Our PrimeTech Pots are made of hard-anodized aluminum with a ceramic nonstick coating and heat exchanger for maximal efficiency. PrimeTech pots are best suitable for the hiker who values a quick boiling time and low fuel consumption.

Hard-anodized aluminum is lightweight, a good conductor of heat and doesn't rust. The material is extremely durable and tough enough to stand up to the most busy outdoor chef. Being hard-anodized the cookware is non-reactive, meaning, you can cook acidic food without tearing on the surface or worrying that the food will pick up a metallic taste of the pan.

Hard-anodized aluminum is more long lasting and resist to scratches than natural aluminum . Hard-anodized aluminum can be cleaned in the dishwasher, but discoloration may appear.

The heat exchanger in the bottom increases the efficiency with up to 50 % compared to conventional pots.

Nonstick Coating

The ceramic nonstick coating is a safe and environmentally friendly nonstick-option. It requires less or no oil for cooking and makes cleaning up easier.

Although ceramic nonstick coating is hard to scratch, we recommend not to use metal utensils in the cookware. For a longer lifetime of the coating, avoid overheating and placing a hot pan straight under cold water. As with all nonstick coatings it is important to completely clean off all the cooked oil after use or the oil will eventually weaken the nonstick coating of the cookware.

Therefore, titanium pots are ideal for boiling water and less ideal for proper cooking, so take care not to overheat the pot.
