- Good pot, cup is a waste
Just picked this up for my son't AT trip. My retailer sells this "kit", but not just the pot. Our existing camp pot kits were just a bit heavy for such a trip.
Compared it to a MSR titanium pot of roughly the same size (1.5 litre I believe).
This pot with lid and handle weighed in at 7.4 ounces. The titanium one with handle and lid weighed in at 6.9 ounces. I went with this one and the extra half ounce for the following reasons:
#1: The handle is attached and less likely to get lost or cause a spill (more common with the "clamp on" handles - IMO).
#2: The lid on this system has a built in strainer, the titanium one did not. I know that heat can be lost through the strainer holes, but like them anyway.
#3: I like the way the handle folds over and clamps the "kit" shut. Additionally, the handle is longer on this one vs. the removable one on the titanium version, which if cooking over wood is nice to have that extra handle reach.
Dislike: coffee cup. This will be tossed and never used. I'd rather save $10 and not be forced to get this cup.
As to actual cooking - I cannot comment. My general experience with most of these ultra-light pots is that none of the really cook very well in terms of spreading heat evenly on the bottom when used with a small stove or heat source.
Value would be higher if not forced to accept a useless coffee cup, perhaps even a 5
Quality is quite good at purchase, but can never give quality a rating before extended use (we'll see how the fold-over handle clamp shut system works over time).
Price - due to forced useless coffee cup, I would say the price is about $10 higher (at list price $60) than it should be. At $50 or less, I think the price would be quite good.
