stainless steel cook set for Trangia Spirit Burner

Does anybody have any recommendations for a stainless steel cook set that will match up well with the Trangia Spirit Burner? Thanks!

I use a 600 ml Ti pot that fits the top of the burner.

MSR makes stainless steel pots , but may be too big for a solo packing minimizer..

The stainless steel (SS)-aluminum laminated Trangia Duossal cooksets linked in post #2 look nice but they are fairly pricey, intended for more than one person and thus heavier than necessary, and hard to find in the USA.

Here is a popular Trangia solo kit, which includes mini stove, pot stand, 800ml pot, lid/plate/frying pan and pot holder. Just add lighter, ethanol and a windscreen (2 layers of Al foil) - All Al, not SS.

https://www.amazon.com/Trangia-32750.../dp/B000LN7HUC

If you have to have SS pots, consider the MSR Alpine - I bought this same set several years ago. It's a little heavy by backpacker standards, and you rarely need the larger pot for just one person, but SS is durable and it won't get bent in your bag from a drop like aluminum (Al) or titanium (Ti) pots sometimes do:

https://www.amazon.com/MSR-Alpine-2-.../dp/B0020TVDDM

Al pots are relatively inexpensive and the best choice for efficient heat transfer. Avoid nonstick Al pots as the polymer coatings never last and you likely end up eating small amounts of PTFE over time.

Ti usually costs the most, it's relatively light and tough but it transfers heat relatively poorly - the weight saved in a Ti cookset is probably offset several times over by the weight of extra fuel required for identical heating/boiling/cooking scenarios.

Try a few different potstands/windscreens with your Trangia - some will let you boil 2 cups cold water in <5", and some take 10"! Fuel matters too - denatured ethanol (ethanol intentionally rendered undrinkable by an additive to deter abuse and preclude issues with alcoholic beverage regulation/taxation) is the best for cooking. Methanol will work but it's slower. Isopropyl alcohol will also work but it leaves pots blackened/sooty.

The topic of stoves and related discussion is not unusual in Touring forum:

When I decided to get a trangia, i bought the mini set. The small alu pot has a slight indent on the bottom that fits the burner holder, so it helps stop the pot from sliding off the stand. Handy little feature. I use this one pot kit for myself, but have another simple slightly larger pot for two of us.
As mentioned, the msr ss set is nice and very tough, but heavier.

The mini set is small and light, and works for me, mostly water boiling and simple meal preparing. The pot is a bit small, and why I have that larger basic alu pot , not much heavier but nicer for food use.

do you already own a Trangia or just looking for the pots?

The larger kits have the whole large windscreen thing that the pot nestles into, more efficient for wind and fuel use, but they are kind of bulky.
For my mini kit, I use an old MSR thick aluminum foil windscreen that i put around the base to stop wind from blowing the flame around too much, probably saves fuel or rather, maximizes the heat from what fuel I put in the stove.
