As much as cooking pots are very handy, they are also very bulky not to mention heavy, but not the Sea to Summit X-pot. This pot combines the heat-distribution characteristic of aluminum at the bottom of the pot and the flexibility of the silicone.
The Sea to Summit X-pot is a collapsible pot that collapses into what looks like a pancake that can be easily stored when not in use. The base of the pot is made from hard anodized aluminum stainless steel ring, giving the pot the rigidity to handle the rigors of coking and offers a fast boil time and the rest of the body, pot cover not included, is silicone as well as the handle. The handle doesn’t get hot and folds over locking itself to the lid. The clear lid of the pot has an integrated strainer perfect for cooking pasta.
The pot measures 9.5” wide and has a capacity of 1 US gallon or 3.8 L. It measures 5” tall when open and collapses to 2″ which makes it perfect for storing unlike your traditional pots. Though it may not be compatible to use with traditional stove, it can be really handy when use on electric heaters and electric stoves.
