What was the price in the most recent drop?
I received one of these as a gift a year ago, so hoping my experience with it will be helpful. This is definitely a specialty item, and I do not take it with me on backpacking trips, and only occasionally use it camping. I had hoped it would function, (as they state it does) like a pressure cooker, thus saving cooking time, (and fuel). The American version of this cooker has a vent hole and does not function as a true pressure cooker, so do not expect faster cooking times than a normal pot, and in my tests, it actually took longer than a regular pot, for white rice. As another poster pointed out (I agree with plexus) this pot does not safely sit on all backpacking stoves, and due to the tall design, you need to take more care than the average shorter pot, to avoid tipping it over. White rice takes an average of 20-25 minutes. I had thought the big selling point would be for brown rice, which I only tried once, and I remember it taking forever, so you will use a lot of fuel. The only real selling point, is that you don't have to stir, and it doesn't burn the rice if you use a small flame. It is worth noting that due to the small diameter, your backpacking stove really needs to adjust down to a small flame. It doesn't make any sense to use it with dehydrated meals, so unless you primarily cook rice or quinoa, this is a specialty item that for many, may not be worth it. If you've got money to spare and like to collect gear, you will probably be just fine with it. Just don't expect it to replace a normal backpacking pot.
I got mine last month from the most recent drop and am pleased with mine. Made some brown rice with it and was pleasantly surprised how it turned out. It's a nice quality kit.
OK... I bought this over a year ago from a previous drop. We used it on a number of back country trips and it required some learning and adjustment to be useful. First, it doesn't fit on my stove safely - the diameter is just a bit too small to fit on my MSR Whisperlite stove. I have to use the metal grill off my stick stove under it to hold it safely. But this ok because it distributes the heat and allows the cooker to simmer better than on the direct flame. But without that grill, we can't use it. I tried cooking dehydrated meals in it but its not better than a wider stove - it's harder to stir because its so deep and food tends to burn. I thought we could use it as an alternative pot for general cooking, but no. As a rice cooker its great but it takes longer than a pot. However you don't have to stir it to prevent burning when you use the internal container. With the internal contain for the rice, it works great. I fill the outside pot with just enough water to fill the gap between it and the inner pot. then measure out the water needed for the rice and the rice of course and let it simmer. The rice I use says 15 mins but this pot takes just over 20. For rice, I think I prefer it than a regular pot so I dont have to stir it constantly. But that's the only benefit so far.

LOL...yeah, it doesn't take much to amuse me either. Just for me personally, I tend to use the instant brown rice rather than lug around the fuel necessary to cook raw rice when backpacking. For camping, where the weight of fuel isn't such a big deal, I totally agree.

I dont use raw rice either - that would take upwards of 56 minutes I estimate. I use parboiled rice with spices, by unvcle bens. at home on the stove it takes about 15 min. with this cooker camping it takes around 20. i ve also used instant rice which takes around 5 minutes, but we prefer the more wholesome par boiled and we carry for fuel for it for a week no problem. if we nneded more fuel efficiency (eg. longer trip) we'd use instant.
I was hoping to have this for a Thanksgiving trip. Any idea if the shipping is delayed from China or if it's delayed by MD? Really would like to see an estimate beyond "if it's 30 days late..." :(
Just received an email from Massdrop that this item will be shipped late. "Due to an unexpected delay, these orders may ship later than the original estimated ship date. Our apologies for any inconvenience. If we find that the drop is going to be delayed by more than 30 days, we will let you know."
This item was ordered on 26 Sep 2018 with an expected ship date of 19 Oct 2018. Perhaps I will receive it by mid December?

If we're lucky. 🙄
Could this also serve as my water vessel instead of my canteen? Thank you for any help.
RichSchwartz
Picture shown there's small vent hole on lid , so unless you put a bandaid over the vent hole, it's not a watertight vessel
How much the outer pot weight on its own?
I know Titanium is lightweight and totally rustproof, but how is it for cooking?--does it have a chance or tendency to warp if overheated of if it boils dry? Looks like it could be the perfect cooking material; don't have to worry about lead leaching in food like vintage cast iron, or getting aluminum in your food (bad).
RHPICAYUNE
Titanium has doesn't hold heat like the other materials do. Has a tendency to get hot spots at your heat source, but also cools rapidly which I find to be of benefit on the trail. I probably wouldn't get a frying pan in titanium, but it is indeed ideal for boiling water, soups, etc. I don't have this cooker, but no reason to think it doesn't perform very well at doing what it does.
It's not letting me write a review because I got it in the last Keith Titanium blue box, but this is a great cooker. I've used it at least forty times between on several camping trips with my snow peak gigapower stove and on my gas range at home, and the rice cooks perfectly in eleven minutes after it reaches a boil. I always add fresh or dehydrated veggies and jerky (good jerky works better) and no matter what I add it comes out really nicely cooked. I usually pack the inside with bagged jasmine rice and my stove to save space. Make sure you rinse your rice a few times before cooking.
mine arrived today. unfortunately, it’s missing the silicone gasket for the lid. Wrote to customer service. ‘Has anyone else had a problem with these?
Still waiting for the pressure cooker. Looks like even banggood doesn't have the weight
I got this from the last drop, and am very happy with it. The main benefit is that I can boil or steam food over a hot fire (wood, gas etc) without anything getting burned. I've tried rice, meat and vegetables - all turned out fine. It's not ultralight, and there's no pressure cooker attachment (and - even more important - no safety valve!!), so it's not a pressure cooker. But it's well made and definitely an upgrade for my camp kitchen!

I should add that clamps, gasket, lid etc. are top notch, and the whole thing goes in the dishwasher (after removing wood soot, of course).
Looks like for the USA market at least, they deleted the jiggler weight on the nipple arrangement, that would make this a true "pressure cooker", Liability and lawyers... You could put something together at your own risk beyond the low pressure you will get from the simple vent orifice... food or anything clogs it, no fun... The digital temperature meter & Bourdon gauge that we see in the video, was only for testing, not an item for sale, from what I see.

The upgraded premium version with the weight has not been released yet. They might sell it next year late if they think that there is enough of a market.
I bought this for my camping Kit and it’s been huge. Though designed for rice, I find its best applications with cous cous or quinoa as the water will eventually steam and open up the grains.
Vegetables are easy as are clams, muscles and even crab if you break the limbs off. Makes a pretty good poached salmon too if you pack a lemon out.
If you read the instructions in the last picture, it says this works on induction cooktops... how? Titanium has no magnetic properties...

Yes, induction cooking uses ferromagnetism... so if the titanium is not, how does this pot work with an induction top?
Colourspot
Pure titanium is still weakly reactive to magnetic fields, however there are many titanium alloys that are magnetic and most of them will just be listed as titanium.
This is something I have been wanting for a while But haven't been able to justify the price. I cannot wait to get my hands on it and start experimenting with different steamed meals.
I have started a thred on redit to try and share ideas (https://www.reddit.com/r/trailmeals/comments/6vnzjy/keith_ti_rice_cooker_cooking/?st=J6PUEBOG&sh=aabbb4b7)

Can I store a regular ISO Butane/Propan fuel canisteer into this pot for carrying?

A 110g MSR fits. A 227g MSR does not.

25 minutes cooking time for rice! Who carries that much fuel around. Probably a good car camping pot but not for the trail!

Flatcatgear epicurian stove gets that with esbit tabs. .5 oz per tablet., stove ?=minimal

Cooks 1C+ rice on 1 oz of alcohol fuel, even above 10K (sierras). "PRESSURE" derived from sealed clamps and hole as valve. GSI has a heavy but decent pressure cooker designed for backcountry cooking.
If this was a real pressure cooker I'd join. As a previous message noted it is just "a fancy and heavy pot" in it's current configuration. Not only does it need the needle value pressure regulator, but some device to safely release overpressure is essential. I don't see one in the photo of the "upgraded" (i.e. pressure regulated) model. Without a safety pressure release don't expect it see it sold in the U.S.A. as a pressure cooker -- lawyers would be rubbing their hands together in delight if it were. Also -- the regulator looks lightweight, I'd be suprised if it could pressurize the pot to 5 psi. That's far from the 15-20 psi a regular home pressure cooker can attain.
I fail to see how this is a pressure cooker without a regulator. The hole in the lid will allow steam to escape, and won't allow pressure build up.
What would somebody in the ultralight community actually use this for?
I use minute rice and dehydrated vegetables. A regular titanium 1L pot is around 3oz, so this is much heavier. Basically, without a regulator to regulate internal pressure, this is a fancy and heavy pot.
i own a few pressure pots, all of which have nut mountings on the bung that the regulator sits on. may just drill out the top hole a bit and put one of those on.
Another person here who would join if it came with the regulator. I looked for ultralight pressure cookers a while ago and did not find anything. Pressure cooking would definitely save on fuel, not sure why there is not any demand.

I saw the new question on amazon. I wonder how much the regulator helps and how the temperature would increase
Groncho
I emailed Keith support about a pressure regulator and got this as (part of) the reply:
"It is not available right now for customer order but we plan to make it available for order in year 2018."
Does anyone which smaller titanium pots/cups will stack underneath this Keith ti6300 cooker? I would like to create a cookware set similiar to the the Evernew Stacking set.

But wait, there's more. ..
Bread too! Just set it and forget it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_xI4NJkeKIM

That bread looks totally dope but man, that place in the video is just brutally desolate huh? How did he survive such an arduous trek through such unforgiving terrain??
MikeyCmikeyDO
Cool trick! :-)
Anyone know of a resource to buy the pressure cooker attachment? Can't find it online. Possibly because this whole system appears so new to the market?
CalebK
I'd like to know too.

From the product page on amazon, the seller responded to a question with: "Keith Titanium Multifunctional Cooker has two versions, standard and upgraded. The only difference is that the upgraded version has the pressure regulator you mentioned. The upgraded version is for regions with altitude higher than 13,000 feet. The standard version has been tested on mountains higher than 13,000 feet. Even though the standard version is very popular now, we won't produce the upgraded version until 2019 because we think the market demand for it is very low. Thanks! "
So the insert turns it into a steam cooker? Interesting. Sounds like a better way to cook rice and grains without burning the grains on the bottom of the pot.
Looks cool.
But it does NOT come with the regulator needed for pressure cooking? It doesn't look like there's one pictured anywhere on the description page.
If not, where would one get what's needed for pressure cooking? I can't seem to find the regulator anywhere online.
K.T.N
I'm guessing that it still does a little bit of pressure cooking without the regulator, because in the instruction graphic it says the steam that cooks the food is 105 degrees Celsius. Check out my response to another comment where I copy & pasted a seller response from Amazon... looks like the "upgraded version" with the regulator won't be available until 2019. I haven't been able to find it separately either.
Does this come usable as a pressure cooker as part of this drop?
Nice - good to see Keith Titanium in a drop; now can we see the Keith Ti Canteen and Cup with a similar discount......
Aotearoan
They had this in a Keith Titanium bluebox earlier this year. I got the canteen and cup instead, some got the set of nesting cups... Some also got cutlery sets or a beer mug as bonuses.
This guy sold me on it...



I wish I it came with a regulator though...

How do you think this would work for those Lipton sides,Knorr or even Ramon....I never eat rice backpacking but would like to try some of those meals as the Mountain House ect.become pricey....
Atmako
I'd bet it'd work fine. Just leave the insert out. My Liter BOT is similarly shaped and works fine for Knorr.
Edit: My Snow Peak 700 (and my Vargo 700 BOT) seem to be the perfect size for Knorr.
