Here's what others have to say...

Can this be used over an open flame fire?...

Posted on

Can this be used over an open flame fire? I do not wish to use my jet boil unless I need to.

Responded on

No. Aluminum and titanium can be permanently damaged by the extreme heat from an open flame(this is made from aluminum).
Though it is possible to use stainless steel, MSR does not recommend it.
FYI, here is the link to MSR's FAQ page:

Also... you'd want an easily detachable handle for cooking over a fire... and this ain't got one!

Easy and Light

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Used this while on a five day backpacking trip for my daily dinners. This was an easy set up and able to fit a few pieces inside while in transit. Fits well inside the pack as well. Look forward to using this piece in the future.

Great pot

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I took this pot out on a 17 day backpacking expedition through the Mono Divide region of the Seirras. This pot is light weight and there are a couple things I really like about it. One of them is the talon handle. It has a good grip and won't let the pot fold over on you when you hold it upside down. Which is really helpful when you're straining water out of pasta. Which brings me to my next point: the strainer holes. They are really nice when cooking pasta and the talon handle perfects it because it won't let the pot fold on you when you strain it. Love this pot. The attached picture is from when my group bivied on top of Mt. Hooper at 12,349 ft.

Will the MSR XGK EX fit into this pot and allow the lid to close?

Best Answer Responded on

No, you need at least a 2L pot. Try the MSR Alpinist 2 @ 2.4L. Don't forget to pad the stove or it will tear up the pot's finish.

Hi, could you please measure and weigh this pot for me? 6.75 x 3.75 = 128 cunic inches = 2.1 Litres!! Please measure the inner diameter of the pot itself and the inner height, as well as weight with lid, thanks.

Anybody know: does the MSR Whisperlite International fit inside this thing? Thanks.

Responded on

The whisper light is .25" too tall with the lid on, otherwise it fits the other dimensions. You could put the whisper lite in the pot and shove the lid somewhere else in your pack to keep things compact.
