Things that nest and lids that fit…


I have a bit of a fetish for nesting cookware. I’m always looking around for things that might fit with other things. I thought it would be useful to have a thread about what fits what. Don’t be shy about sharing your own finds.

I’ll start with my latest acquisition…an Evernew 1.3L Titanium pot with an Evernew 0.7L aluminum tea kettle

http://bushcraftusa.com/forum/attach...6&d=1361844331


Klean Kanteen 12oz wide-mouth vacuum bottle/REI Ti-ware 400ml mug - The mug is the same as the Evernew 400 ml, it was branded for REI. The KK vacuum bottle is slightly larger in diameter than a single-wall KK so the fit is good. I don’t know if the larger diameter is true with the single wall wide-mouth bottles.

Eco-canteen 27oz/Chinook Timberline stainless 300ml mug - Although it looks like a KK bottle, it is a fraction smaller in diameter. The KK bottles will not fit this mug.

Czech Mess kit/Paderno 6-1/4” Blue Steel Baking Pan and Sigg Duossal pot/Paderno 7-1/8” Blue Steel Baking Pan

http://bushcraftusa.com/forum/attach...8&d=1361844571

Inside the Sigg pot I have a mini-Trangia. The classic plastic cup like those found in a Scout mess kit nests between the burner and windscreen/stand. I removed the handle on mine, but it will stow unaltered.

http://bushcraftusa.com/forum/attach...9&d=1361844572

BSA Mess kit/Paderno 7-1/8” Blue Steel Baking Pan – The fit is a bit wobbly but should be workable with a strap or a fitted stuff sack.

GSI Kettle/Paderno 6-1/4” Blue Steel Baking Pan - The kettle doesn't quite fit flush. It leaves about a 1/2" of space which can be utilized for storage..a Vargo Hexagon Wood Stove for instance.

The accessory windscreen of the Snow Peak Gigapower stove will nest with three things that I know of so far...the lid of the Snow Peak Kettle No1, the lid of the Brunton IB Cookset and the bowl/cup of the GSI Ketalist.

The GSI 6" Mixing bowl will sit inside the mouth of the 1.75qt Straight Pot. They need a strap to hold them together, but it works. A second bowl could be added for two.

Straight pot, bowl and mug came to about $25...this is actually a pretty affordable set. If you don't get the steel rimmed bowl and mug it would be a few bucks less.

Spork..where did you find this 1.75 qt straight pot? I've been looking everywhere for one. And could you tell me the width on the inside of this pot?

If you wanted a deeper baking pan in the six inch range...I found mine in the wedding cake decorating area in Walmart. Very light weight.

Thanks spork for doing this thread. I'm still trying to get a cookset together.

Marsh - I got the straight pot here - Peak62. It's just a hair under 5-1/2" wide inside and 5-3/8" up to the rim from the inside.

The 2qt Kettle might hold your 6" pan - LINK

Edited to add: The Straight pot is tall enough to hold an unaltered IKEA Cutlery caddy with about a 1/4" gap around the sides (space for a windscreen)

Spork I think you are quite a genius and craftsman, After reading tales of this can fitting that(stove) and mine not nesting i threw up my hands. It's not going to work for me,

lol i have enough room to take whatever. if what ever doesnt have room then i am overboard with gourmet kitchenette. which is okay. if i want to get really down and dirty there is no need to nest.:44::44:
'preciate ya all the same. my junk dont nest. maybe not what works best but is what I got so ..make it work

I discovered today that the steel lids from this brand of coffee I've been using will snap snugly over the rim of an Olicamp mug.

http://bushcraftusa.com/forum/attach...9&d=1361845862

It will also work with the stainless cups, but the rim is smaller on them and they don't stay on like they do on the mug.

This is the brand - Kicking Horse Coffee - I've been buying mine through Amazon.

I mostly use a BushBuddy wood burner with alky backup so i have a 1 ltr pot to fit my BB into. Then i have a small Zelph pot/cup that i have my alky stove in. That sits in a zip bowl on top of the stove/pot and it all goes in a bag.

I'm looking for "the right" set up for me. I found one at a mil surp store, it was perfect, very old, but the whole thing was sticky and looked as if it had never been washed after years of use. And, the owner wanted the same price as brand new units. So, i'm still looking. A couple on here are nice.

Coleman peak1 stove w/fuel in Imusa aluminum cup


The stove fits snugly with a sham wow towel wrapped around the base. I also keep a fero rod and a scrubber under the stove where the fuel canister is hollowed out. I know its not as fancy or hi tech but this set up is cheap to put together.

Cool nesting pots and cups everyone. There is nothing like a good set of nesting cook and serving ware.

We backpack quite a bit, almost always two or three of us so we need pots that will serve for that. I got the Snow Peak Cook n Save 2 liter titanium pot for cooking main meals. Sometimes we need to soak some grains and legumes in base camp while we do a long loop hike exploring during the day. The Cook n Save pot is perfect for that and will cook up a large one pot meal for three. Of course we need soup and tea during our day hike and at times we like to cook real chocolate pudding from our own recipe. After research and emails back and forth to double check measurements, I ordered the Evernew 1.3 liter pot and it did nest so perfectly you might think they were made for each other.

http://photos.imageevent.com/boynhis...artOpen750.jpg

Inside the Evernew, two Snow Peak titanium bowls will nest and still have room for a Whitebox stove. In this image I don’t show the windscreen wrapped around the Whitebox stove but indeed it does ride like that and still nests on its side, wrapped in a plastic bag with all lids closed tight. It is a good duo or trio kitchen set up. All we have to do is add our double wall cups, reflectix cozy and cooking and eating utensils on the side for an expedition cookware set that does almost anything.

Here are two sets of cup and bowl I find useful. The orange ones are collapsible silicone rubber I found at WalMart. These are better than the "squishy" bowls since they telescope and store neatly together and have a hard nylon band that keeps them from collapsing in use.

The other set are the Swedish Fold-A-Cup large and small. These have a small handle and are remarkably tough. I use the lighter color in the small cup. I found that after dark the OD cup made it hard to see the fluid level and I would either pour half a cup or would overflow it.

Both sets are close to the same weight, though the Swede cups pack smaller in diameter and both sets have exactly the same capacity.

This is my "Solo Plus" cook set. Compact and light enough to carry when I am alone, with enough extra to offer hospitality to a companion.

The pot set is the Brunton hard anodized aluminum with a lid that fits both pots and includes drain holes.

The first picture is the whole layout, pots and lid, 2 Fold-A-Cups, 2 bowls (salvaged margerine tubs), 2 folding titanium sporks, The Minibull Designs Atomic stove and pot stand, an aluminum heat reflector, an aluminum windscreen, salt & pepper shaker, a 1 oz. dropper bottle used to prime the stove, a 1 oz. measuring cup, and a pack of small wood strike-anywhere matches.

The second picture shows how the cups and stove are packed, the third picture is the packed set ready to be inserted into the net bag.

In addition to the kit I carry a fuel bottle sized to suit the length of the trip. I have a couple each of the flask-type twin-neck bottles in 8 oz. and 16 oz. sizes. These have a unique shape to avoid confusing it with other bottles.

I originally used this packing scheme with an MSR Titan kettle and it works with pots of similar size (.8 liter). There is enough extra room in the Brunton pot to take coffee, tea, sugar or whatever.

Nesting cup for 64oz bottle


I have been carrying a USGI canteen and cup along with a 2quart soft USGI canteen for a while now. I finaly decided to upgrade but wanted the larger 2quart Cleen Canteen, I found 2 cups that nest with the big Cleen Canteen. One was an old Sterno cup and the other I found at Walmart the Coleman Max kit. The bigger of the 2 pot combos of the Coleman kit fits well on the 64oz bottle. and I have the little pan to set on top to use as a lid when I boil. I have not taken either of these out yet, but am hoping to get out this weekend.
I know this is a larger kit than some use, but I took a trip to Tamagami Ontario a couple of years ago, and used just a 1 quart canteen. and a Kadadine filter. I tried to filter a canteen 3 times a day, but sometimes went with just 2 times. I ended up in the hospital when I got home due to dehydration. So now I take water much more seriously and really like bigger containers.

whiteoak, I recently bought a couple of Condor 10 x 4 pouches, and the small Coleman Max pot fits in there with a Nalgene water bottle with room to spare. I pack the lid and a sippy lid in the bottom of the pouch, and sometimes will nest a second mug upside down on the top of the water bottle. Please note, though, that because of the wide flanged rim of the Coleman pot, it is a bit slow coming out when being removed from the Condor pouch. The pouches are new, and I suspect they'll loosen up with use.

A 32 oz. HDPE Nalgene water bottle will fit inside of a Stanley Adventure pot, but a 32 oz. Tritan Nalgene bottle will not. The lid from the Stanley works with the small pot and lid from the Coleman Max set. A 4" Tupperware lid, with a couple of holes punched in it, makes a very snug fitting sippy lid for the small Coleman Max pot.

Thanks I just looked and saw the Maxpedition 5X12 bottle carrier and think that will give plenty of room. I will give it a try with the bottle cup and pan and see if that works. for this kit, I would rather have it loose than tight my maxpedition canteen cover locked in the cup so tight I had to fight to get it out.

The IKEA/soon to be Hobo Stove came today. I was in hopes that it would nest in a GSI bowl+mug set. But it is just a fraction too tight.

But, being a southern redneck, I am not willing to accept defeat so soon. Thinking about heating the plastic mug with a hair dryer and pushing the IKEA in to expand the diameter. I hope this will not be one of those "hold my beer and watch this" moments. It cost $8.00 so maybe I won't loose any more than that.

no luck with the reshaping. It would heat up and expand but go back to the original size when it cooled.

I look at the cutlery caddy every day (I work for IKEA) and toy with this idea but always end up discounting it because of weight. Guess I'll be picking up one soon! ;)

Well, I am 4.5 weeks into recovery from a total hip replacement so work on the IKEA hobo stove has not progressed beyond the planning stage, However I did find these neat little flexible bottles. It came from eBay via China. They are thicker than a heavy zip lock and have a pull spout valve. I am thinking they will be good for alchol fuel. Here is the 16 oz size with 8 oz of HEET stored with the IMUSA 12 cm pot, Minibull lid, Minibull BIOS #1 stove. http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/... ... 088cb1.jpg

Here is a Coffee Kit stored in a Condor h20. The new "thing that fits" is the Rubbermaid Microwave Heatables cup. I got it at a goodwill store for $0.50. It is a type of hard plastic that insulates very well, I cut the handle off so it will fit inside the Condor pouch. It is not hot to the touch when filled with boiling hot coffee even after several minutes. Due to the taper of the cup bottom, a Nalgene bottle will not fully seat inside the cup, but it will fit over the top of the Nalgene. This is going to be my hobo kuksa, I hate driking hot coffee from metal cups.

The little folding Vargo wind screen is also new, http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/623aa434.jpg
http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/76e8c850.jpg it folds down to 3 3/16" H x 3 7/16" W x 3/16" thick which will allow it to store easily.

The Jet Boil coffee press works perfect in the Snow Peak Mini Solo or any other pot that snugly fits over a Nalgene.

The way the larger pot nest inside the smaller pot gives me visions of a great pot stand/wind screen made from the smaller pot. Umm, I may have to get back on evilBay and look for another set. http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/e84f44e7.jpg

I actually experimented with that for a while. You can see in the photos the variation as I cut out more venting and added supports. The last photo is the final form. It worked OK (probably needs more venting), but I decided to tinker with the Westwind setup as it was lighter and seemed more efficient with a separate flashing windscreen.

Hey Spork, I like your Westwind Trangia stove stand mods to make it fit in the Chech mess kit. Here is a photo of the MOJO Trangia stove stand on the Czech Mess kit large pot. I think it will fit with a little sanding on two corners. Thanks for all your information. http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/6d5ae009.jpg

Here is the Czech mess kit with part of a GSI mug/bowl in the smaller pot. The GSI mug and neoprene insulation is all that will fit. http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/f5d73f16.jpg

Here is the complete GSI bowl and mug with lid in the Czech mess kit larger pot. It fits with plenty of room for a stove, stand, wind screen and fuel bottle.

Here is a lid that fits as if it were made for the Olicamp Space Saver Cup. Sorry, but I don't know where the silicone lid came from or who made it. The outside diameter is 3 13/16th. I remember seeing something like this at Walmart, I think,

http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/16f84e96.jpg


The lid has a bevel that makes for a snug fit. http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/47546e66.jpg



And it snaps into an 8 oz cup. I hate to drink hot coffee from a metal cup.

I am going to look around an determine who made the silicone cup or where it can be purchased. Thanks for looking.

Fogive me if I'm missing the obvious, but I am unable to detirmine what exactly the "ikea hobo stove" is!!!! Any leads would be greatly appreciated. I just sprung for a Trangia spirit burner(only model I could find that seemed to be "parts supported") I am looking for suggestions on stacking, packing and nesting all I need. I have one of the stanley mess kits/pot that was posted here and like it. I also pack the nalgene version of the GI canteen with the steel GI cup (stored the canteen as it's too heavey). I also pack a "twig stove" purchased from backwoodsman magazine, tad heavey but thought I could use the trangia in that if need be.
Be well

My Svea 123 stove fits into my new SnowPeak 900 pot, and the Stoic 700 pot that I just got will also fit neatly into the SP900.

By the way, here's a pretty good deal on the Stoic 700 titanium pot, especially if you add a couple of other items that you need in order to get the free shipping.

I carry an Esbit in my Condor H2O with a lot of room to spare.
For the cup that's going to be placed on top, it's more than enough.
I also just got a hold of a perforated piece of steel that's about 4"X6"(1/8" thick).
Super light and acts as a nice little grill to be placed on top of the Esbit for my USGI Mess Kit.

Here is that blue silicone pot lid/cup. It came from Academy. So if you want a lid that will stand 400 degrees, not burn you fingers and function as a cup, they are $3.00 at your local Academy Sports and Outdoors. http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/a96a6b6a.jpg

I am calling this the "Deluxe Solo Kit." It is the final mod on the Czech Mess kit that Spork let us know about. Thanks again Spork this is a good find.

This mod involves cutting 1 inch + hack saw blade width off the top of the smaller pot and removing the handle. This pot will be for cooking sauce, meat, etc, and as a dry baking pot. By cutting 1 inch off the height it also allows the GSI mug/bowl to fit and gives the extra room needed to elevate the small pot for dry baking. I also trimmed the corners off the MOJO pot stand to allow it to nest under the fry pan/plate lid.

http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/907aec84.jpg

The pot lid fits all the way down.

http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/ba746cbd.jpg
The part cut off the small pot is sitting on top of the small pot. The three curled pieces are made from folded wind screen aluminum and are used for dry baking pot supports. The Trangia stove and other small parts nest inside the GSI mug/bowl with the lid snapped in place. The wind screen and pot support lay on top of the plastic bowl. I like the Trangia stove for this setup because of the ability to adjust the heat to simmer or bake.

http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/95a08d7f.jpg

It also works to replace the MOJO pot stand and Aluminum wind screen with a Vargo Hex wood stove. The Vargo works as a pot support and wind screen and allows you to adjust the Trangia simmer ring by opening the door. It also gives the option of cooking with wood which may be a good thing if you spilled you alcohol.

Here is a view of the part cut away from the small pot, That salvaged pot handle may be reincarnated on another pot some day. http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/a71e8418.jpg

I really like the cut down inner pot ideal for baking...it would make a good sized portion, enough for two possibly.

I'm thinking with the lid on open side up, it could hold a few coals and operate like a mini Dutch oven.

My cookware (stainless steel Peak 1 set)...

There are actually a couple items missing such as a stainless steel plate, a rag, and a sheet of plastic for mixing ingredients (including dough for bannock). I'm a photographer by trade though, and a little picky about what items will still look good in photos. ;)

I really like this cook set. The stainless steel cookware is so much nicer than the aluminum mess kits, and the compact short fork and spoon
I found at a garage sale are so much higher quality than any camp utensils I've seen.

Here is a Svea 123r stove and 3 cups that will nest with a Nalgene bottle. http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/d7835432.jpg

The fit in the Snow Peak Mini Solo cup it perfect, it completely covers the stove and is just snug enough to not fall out
http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/4e49d2d8.jpg

The stove fits a little loose in the GSI Mug, no resistance at all.

Here is my next project, a two person kit using the Mors Kochanski 1.8 ltr bush pot. Two of the GSI bowl/mugs will fit leaving a lot of room inside for gas canister, or other stove combination. Tinny is sending a 12 cm Imusa pot with no handle. I think it will work for an extra pot or baking dish. More to follow.

Just a few odd notes:
"You would think that someone would sell a plastic mug that fits over a nalgene bottle like the glacier cup... "

That just shows that many designers do not actually use the stuff. However, the cup that fits the bottom also fits the top so you can carry two cups, albeit, metal. What would be a nice arrangement would be a lighter version of the NATO "Crusader" set based on the Nalgene bottle - plastic cup over top, steelcup with handles on the bottom and a stove/stand/windscreen for solid fuel/alcohol/gel/twig. A flattish lid with a folding D-knob could fit in the bottom of the carrier. Some sort of bail would also be nice to hang the cup over a small fire.

Plastic Nalgene bottles are available, as are stainless steel versions, along with various caps and accessories so this allows the user to configure whatever arrangement best suits his needs to make a quick hot beverage, a hot lunch or even solo cooking. I would think it would be a good seller both as kits and as individual pieces. All that is needed is an enterprising manufacturer - preferably one who actually uses what he sells.

Plain aluminum does ding up easily, hard anodized aluminum resists that a lot and tends to cook better than titanium. Anodizing also isolates the raw aluminum if that is a concern (I don't think it is but that is another topic).

My local dollar store/hardware store/pharmacy have gotten use to my eccentric ways, poking around looking for lids, nail polish (to waterproof matches), odds and ends of materials, glues, fasteners and whatnot. You can find interesting and useful stuff n all sorts of odd places. I was rebuilding some old bamboo fishing rods and found little disposable foam brushes in a matchbook package in the ladies nail care section that were ideal for applying rod varnish to the wrappings, for instance. Be sure to look in the toy section, too. Lots of good small stuff there.

I am not sure how big your Stanley water bottle is, but you can get a Koozie for a Fosters Oil Can or you can duct tape one together one from reflectix or from a shinney windshield protector.

Here is a soup cup that fits the top of a nalgene bottle. The plastic is thin but is a good insulator so hot coffee won't burn your fingers. You just trim the metal ring away from the top edge. That is the metal top edge hanging on the mug handle. http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/39dccc89.jpg

The soup mug will also nest inside a 10cm Imusa mug. It is the white one inside the center Imusa. The Fosters can will nest inside the soup mug. And the 10cm Imusa will nest in the 12cm Imusa.

Thanks for looking.

LIDS THAT FIT.

Tinny with MiniBullDesigns makes an aluminum lid for the Imusa 12cm pot and For Dog Stoves makes a titanium lid for the Snow Peak 900. Funny that both lids will fit either pot, weigh almost the same and the pots with lids weigh the same. The Four Dog lid uses a larger screw and knob so it is a little heavier. The darker lid is Ti and the lighter lid is Alu. Thanks for looking. http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/... ... 2992a8.jpg

Here are two new pans being sold by WalMart, the round one is 5.5 inches in diameter and the square one is 5.5 inches across the flats. These are priced at $4.77. A little lower cost than the one-egg-wonder and a little larger. I can see some good handle mods in these pans future. They stack well together and stack well with a 12cm zebra or 12cm Imusa. http://i1060.photobucket.com/albums/...6/22742fee.jpg

Reversible handles?

Or maybe a "one-way" locking hinge integrated into the stem of the handle?

I recently discovered that a 0.6L Trangia teakettle will nest inside a Czech mess kit pot like it was made for it...so I made some changes in my setup.

The modified Westwind stand and Trangia burner are still included. I cut down a Dollar store cookie turner to use as a spatula with the Paderno fry pan. The pot gripper handles have been shortened a bit to fit the available space.

I also added a - Medelco Permanent Coffee Basket - for brewing coffee in the kettle. It fits the kettle just right and the Trangia burner nests inside (padded with a small piece of dishcloth)...no more crunchy Cowboy coffee :4:

Does anyone else re-read this thread from start to finish every so often... and get a hankerin' to head off to Wally-world and all the various thrift shops around town? I don't know why but I can't stop playing cookware Tetris these days.

I now have -- count 'em -- (6) separate solo setups, with different stoves, water containers, cups, bowls, cleanup accessories, etc. for each set. Plus too many partial kits to count just waiting to be finalized someday once the right item magically appears.

For my next trick I am attempting to configure a (4) person setup for the upcoming November trip. As in "just bring shelter & sleeping gear guys, I've got everything else covered".

The lid of an MSR Alpine kettle will snap solidly onto an olicamp aluminum space saver cup solidly. You need to pry it off with your hand to get it off.

Bushcraftusa must have some way to not allow the links to be active outside their site....bummer. Thanks for your insight on the lid of the alpine kettle fitting on the olicamp space saver. Seems like there are gazillion combinations of lids that fit other pots and pots that fit into other pots. I wonder if someone has compiled a chart of lids and what pots they fit :D If anyone would know, it would be "spork" at bushcraftusa
