Cooking pots can be the most bulky and awkward items to fit into your pack. The four sizes of X-Pots are collapsible, fully featured cooking pots that combine the heat-distribution of aluminum with the flexibility of silicone. The hard anodized aluminum base offers a fast boil time and the stainless steel ring embedded in the rim turns the silicone walls into an exceptionally rigid structure for easy lifting and stirring. The X Pot / Kettle does not incorporate the stainless steel ring but rather a pair of nylon 66 handles to support the upper rim and improve control when pouring. Of course, the beauty of the X-Pots is their ability to be packed neatly with other X products nested inside, such as X-Mugs and X-Bowls.
