stainless steel vs Ali ............


The Swedish army meal kit - or kitchen as the Swedes call them is, to my mind, the most versatile piece of cookware available to the dedicated outdoors person.

But whats better - the Ali or the stainless model??

Well the stainless one weighs almost double the Ali one ....... but it is bomb proof! But boil time is a critical facture as the faster the boil the less fuel needed etc.


So I decided to carry out a less than scientific experiment ............. the mission to boil a pint of water in both pots on my modern gas stove at home (where conditions were controlled) and see which was fastest to a rolling boil ........


Well as you can see the stainless stel pot boiled a pint of water in 6.25 minutes only a fraction on a second or two a head of the Ali .......... so which is better?? Well that depends on the weight ..............
