Rated 5 out of 5 by campingiscool Does the job
Not much to it. Just what I wanted. I love the little gripper. I also like the little sleve to drink out of the pot and the spork works fine.

Rated 5 out of 5 by llbeanisfamily simple, lightweight, great!!
This pot holds the spork, grabber, AND my stove and fuel! It is super lightweight and is made with quality. I am extremely happy with it and got more value than expected for such low price!

Rated 4 out of 5 by Customer19681968 Great little pot... almost five stars
I'm quite pleased with this piece of kit. Good quality and carefully designed. For example, the lid functions as either a cooking lid or, after flipping it over, it becomes a tight-fitting sip lid. The silicone pot holder is a little small for my fingers, but it still works. The best surprise came when I realized that my fuel canister and stove fit inside the pot... A complete kit now! Only disappointment was the plastic "Foon" that comes with it... It feels cheap.
Overall, I give it a very good rating (almost, but not quite, five stars).

Rated 5 out of 5 by love2paddlemore Super light; clever design
Nice size and shape. Tall enough to resist boil-over, yet wide enough for mini-stoves. So far, have tried it only with rolled oats and with tea, but doesn't stick and cleans quite easily. Reversible potlid/sippytop and pot/mug cozy work well. Silicone potgripper works but need to grip min. 1" to 1.5" down the pot edge to secure it. Was surprised to read no-no in instructions re open fire use. Assume it's due to plastic lid, so, for stick stove use, I made a lid from a can and a wooden knob. Look forward to trying this lid.

I used this cookset on an winter backpacking trip in the Catskills. It performed as advertised: perfect for a one-person meal of ramen noodles with about 3/4's of a cup of fresh veggies added. When my meal was ready, I simply picked up the pot and slid it into its thermal cozy and ate up comfortably. I did not need the silicon potholder; nor did I use the spork that came with the set. Similarly, the pot and cozy worked great as a thermal mug for my hot cocoa, keeping it warm for the duration of time I took to drink it. One small pot working as pot and mug: light, compact, and fully functional for the purposes it was designed to meet. I'm glad I bought it.

This is, pound for pound, the best piece of backpacking equipment I own. Like all backpacking equipment, it is specialized and functional within that specialty. This set is primarily useful for boiling water and/or cooking stuff related to boiling water. It holds two cups of water, which is the amount needed for most freeze dried backpacker meals. I've also used it to prepare noodles to which I've added canned meat. The cup can be used to prepare a hot drink and the cover coverts to a beverage sip cover. One hint: use the "pot holder" to put the pot in the insulated sleeve, THEN pour the boiling water. Steam is hot.
