Lost in translation... :wink:

It's a great idea, but i would of preferred something shorter & chubbier rather
than the tall & thin.
I'm sure it'll be on massdrop again sooon.

THIS THING IS GREAT AND HAS CHANGED THE WAY I COOK CAMP MEALS!
I recently bought it as I like real, fresh steamed rice while hiking (as that's what we eat at home). I then just add chilly salmon or a home dried stir-fry or curry to the rice. The Keith ti6300 has markers for either 100g (1 person), 200g (2 persons) OR 280g (3 persons) of rice with associated amounts of water. Steaming is quite frugal on water usage which I like. The pots (main & inner with tiny steam holes in it) are NOT the lightest at 256g, but you can eat out of the inner while heating up water for a hot drink in the main pot. I place the pot directly on top an Evernew titanium alcohol stove so that it simmers (top stove jets are blocked by pot but bottom circle of jets still work fine). Perfectly cooked rice takes 17-20mins using 50-60ml of alcohol fuel (dependent on conditions). So not the quickest either but you can set it going then do other things - you don't have to stir or watch it at all - just make sure you add enough water so that your pot doesn't boil dry. You add water to the marker - wait, let it soak thru - then add to the marker again plus a bit more for good measure. It also does the 'cake in a cup' mix perfectly by steam (5 mins). I have not tried any other baking.

I bought it for A$107 (now $103) from https://www.banggood.com/Keith-Ti6300-Titanium-256g-900ml-Cooking-Pot-Nonstick-Rice-Cooker-Lightweight-Cookware-With-Handle-p-1129365.html?rmmds=search Highly recommend...it's BANG GOOD!

Hahaa ! l knew someone on here would have some experience with it.
I like the combo of chilli salmon mixed with rice too...and with oodles of noodles.
Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Dreamer.

I'm not sure I would want to have my stove going for 45 minutes to steam rice properly so is presoaking needed to use this device?
Nice modification idea Ofuros, where did you get the pressure release valve from? What pressure did you decide was safe?

Google images for 'safety jiggler valve'....I used a trangia burner to pressurise then dropped on the simmer ring otherwise it'll run dry or deform the thin lid & allow steam to past the seal. There's only 2 latches to hold the lid down unlike real pressure cookers that clamp down around the whole rim.
Pressure on most jigglers are roughly 80kpa or 11.6 psi, if google hasn't been telling porkies.

Soaked overnight brown 20-30 mins depending how chewy you like your rice.
Black wild rice 20 mins- ish

Not sure how useful the mod is in the bush...but sometimes the side roads are more interesting than the highways.

Will try pressurising then putting rice into a cosy to see if that saves on fuel...

Steamed Bread. Baking paper & a Trangia burner or one of its knockoffs are the go...with a simmer ring.
Maybe let the water run dry towards then end of the cooking time for dryer/crisper outside crust. Experiment.
Mcmuffin anyone. :wink:

I just picked one of these up...

How did you attach the pressure jiggler ? did you have to driller the lid?

thanks

Working away at the moment...from memory there was a small hole there already to let the steam out, so all you have to do is drill the hole to a larger size to suit the jiggler/valve.

Don't crank up the burner to much, just have it ticking over otherwise the lid will bow & flex letting steam past the silicone seal around the lid. Let the valve do its job...it will release the pressurized steam.

Have fun experimenting, rustyjus.

I have just discovered this pot.
Any long time reports on it ?

The person I walk with and camp with is very thingy about perfectly steamed rice, and over three years we've used it a lot, mainly as a rice cooker, with good results. Also, just for camping, the person usually buys a pre-washed white shortgrain variety from a Japanese supermarket, but a few times with a curry I've done basmati (with added saffron, a cinnamon stick and cardamon seeds) and that also came out great. (But then everything always tastes so great camping in the bush, so how do you know?) From memory the outer pot is too narrow to conveniently drop in a packet of ramen.

Thank you for that. I am thinking, sort of, that it could be good for basecamping for a few days for two people.
Anyway, mostly I like the idea, i think it is a clever compromise between a std pot and a pressure cooker.
