    Toaks Titanium 750ml Pot with Bail Handle

    First try out of my new cup / billy. This isn't a review, just a little report on the first bush use.

    This "pot" has both a folding handle and a bail (which allows it to be hung over a fire). Flexible options I hope !
    I'm looking forward using it a bit more in the coming months.

    The pot comes in a padded (orange) cover which would probably serve as a pot cozy, but I didn't test that.

    The diameter allows a standard 1.25l bottle, or 100g gas can to nestle in easily:

    I used a metho stove to boil the water. One criticism I had read, and I agree with, is that the lid does not sit very snugly,
    it can easily be dislodged, but when its in place it is a good fit:

    Easy to hold, even when full

    To extinguish the flames, I just poured in water dilute the metho to the point where it no longer burns. Then it is safe to tip out:

    The other little job I did while waiting for the pot to boil was to sharpen a couple of knives
    Here's a mini feather stick.

    Good review they are a really nice piece of kit. One thing I would add is it will also nest with a 40oz klean kanteen

    Very nice, Id be in the market for something like this, be nice to have a lid and a more sizeable vessel for cooking lunch in, rather than just hot drinks! I tend to boil in a small zebra billy and tip into my stainless steel army cup, which is double handling of sorts!

    Here's the Tomshoo branded version. $20 usd delivered.

    Toaks is nice but Wouldn't be surprised if they came out of the same factory...

    Thanks for that. I just bought one. Same specs as Toaks but cheaper. 750 ml will do instant noodles and a cup of coffee nicely.

    I also bought a Tomshoo. I think only the lidlifter is different. Im very pleased with mine. Also Aliexpress delivered very very fast. Much faster than most stuff that comes from China ...and this was during the pre xmas rush.

    I’ve been reluctant to use aliexpress since they don’t accept PayPal. Good to know some have had good experiences here with this particular cup. But doesn’t it make a difference from which “supplier” you buy from on that site? I found it for the same price (tomshoo) from over a dozen vendors. The different sizes definitely peak my interest.

    And thank you for the awesome pics and insights. Very helpful.
