snow peak question

John or Ho

i just recieved your latest "what's new" email announcment about the snowpeak double walled cup lid and it got me thinking.
During our last excursion, we were subjected to Steve's Flaming Jambalaya, and all complained about how hot the snowpeak bowls got. Does Snow peak make a double walled plate or bowl. if so, i'd like 4 of each please...

Snow Peak does make a family of double-wall serving cups. They look a lot like the double-wall mugs but without the handles. They're available in a wide variety of sizes and they "stack" or "nest" within one another to conserve storage space. I think they're big bucks.

They're in the latest Snow Peak catalog.

These things are available in a crazy amount of sizes.

If you have your 2008 Snow Peak Catalog handy, check out pages 232-236. There's also a table for which mugs stack into which mugs.

I think the "Stacking Mug Seppo Set" are the cheapest:


The large set of three is $110.

The medium set of three is $95.

The small set of two is $48.

There are three other families of stackable double-wall mugs.

The tall version is the "Stacking Mug Seppo H"


From largest to smallest, the cost is $55, $50, $40, $33, and $30.

The mid-height version is the "Stacking Mug Seppo M"


Cost from left to right is $45, $37, $32, $26, and $24.

The low version is the "Stacking Mug Seppo L":


Left to right cost is $34, $29, and $24.

You can see the prices are high and there's a confusing array of different sizes (the specs are in Engrish). So I suggest studying up and ordering the exact size you want. It would suck to spend a few hundred and later realize you got the wrong size.

Also, keep in mind that while these things stack/nest, there is a lot of wasted space because of the double-wall construction. I wasn't crazy about these double-wall cups because I think I'd rather have two or three bowls stacked within one another.

I see that the "Seppo" line of stacking mugs are double walled titanium, but if my metric conversion is correct, the largest is only 4.2" across. Plus, they average about $44 a bowl for the largest size amongst the 3 different heights.

I really dig the wooden Wan set of bowls, but the size is similar to the Seppos.

Edit: Damn it, John. You are too fast.

Yeah... I have one of those marked 400, not sure what size that fits into or whatever but it's just so cup-ish, not civilized like a proper bowl.

ASK AND YE SHALL RECIEVE!!!

so after posting this thread up, Ho rings me and says he's gonna order up a few to try out and if i wanted any.
Damn straight i wanted some.
well look what Brown left at my door step today



inside the box was 2 bundles of double walled sweetness



unwrapped and unstacked, (seppo M 600 & 400)



stacked, so cute!



so i t thought i test them with a little afternoon oatmeal for the kids.



and some chacharoni for me



i split a 5oz. bag between 2 bowls, but then realized that the 600M would hold a 5 oz noodle if you broke the noodle a bit.



hot water for the oatmeal.



my little one holding the hot oatmeal, mere seconds after i poured it.
no scalding little fingers today!!!



back to the noodle, little spice and peas



mixin' in the "special" sauce



stir....



Ruby wanted her cup to sport the EE sticker



Mmmmm, noodles and beer



got to say, i'm giving the double walled bowls a big thumbs up.
yeah they were a little spendy, but gone are the days of hand burns from soup bowls.

thanks again Ho

LOL... to be honest, Steve can be blamed for me Chacharoni purchase.
i'd never had it before, but it seemed appropriate for the "bowl" test.

all "noodling" aside, these bowls are great.
a definite must have for camping with kids

If you dig the Chacharoni, try some of these other ones:


This is another good one:


You might be onto something here, Marc. I was just looking at the Dusy pics and I noticed that Greg, Jack, and I are all using the pot handle:






Using the handle gets tiring. With the double-walled cups, we could have held the cups with our bare hands. Furthermore, we could eat a little noodle, drink a little broth, eat a little noodle, drink a little both, and so on. Thus, we could maintain the proper noodle-to-broth ratio if we had the cups.

I'm not feeling that lantern. It feels a little lame/gay to me.

But if you want one, we're happy to order one for you.
