We always thought Primus was the only band ever to get its own ID3 genre tag. Yeah, they're that strange. Turns out there's another Primus in town covering the not-so-heavy metal scene. They're primarily into aluminum, with a titanium coating.
Primus the gear company is known for its stoves and cookware. We tested the EtaPower aluminum pots with titanium nonstick coating. They have a flux ring around the bottom to transfer heat more efficiently to the pot, speeding up boiling times and distributing heat more evenly through the pot contents. Sounds great; does it work?
Kind of. The pots boil marginally faster than other aluminum models. They do seem to distribute heat more evenly, important for non-water contents like soup. They're definitely tough thanks to the coating and solid build. They weigh a bit more than advertised: 9.4oz for the 2.1L pot, plus another 3.5oz for the lid and 1.6oz for the sturdy little pot grabber. That's a total of 14.5oz for the 2.1L, 12.6oz for the 1.7L. All in all it's a solid if weighty package, but you're paying a premium for only marginally better performance, and you're not even getting a fry pan lid.

I also like this cookware, but prefer a slower way to cook my food. What do you think of dutch ovens?
