I like this pot! (with the right stove)

This is a nice pot indeed. Non-stick works well and seems durable, pour spout works well, and the heat exchanger cuts boil times, provided you use it right.
If the flame is too close to the heat exchanger or if the stove is too powerful, the HE quenches the flame, causing incomplete combustion. You will know it if this happens, it smells REALLY BAD! I tried this stove with a Primus Omnifuel and could not make it work well, the stove was just too powerful. I expect it would also be poorly suited to a Whisperlite. Svea 123 and MSR Pocket Rocket were perfect, this pot cut boil time on the Svea by 45 seconds. And it fits nicely inside the pot as well! I bought this pot for the Svea and couldn't ask for more. If you have an expedition stove, (whisperlite, omnifuel, nova etc...) get something with a wider base. They won't fit in this little guy anyhow.
Downsides? Pot handles are a touch chinzy, but it's an inexpensive pot. Bit small for more than 2 peeps.

Does it have volume markings either oz or liters? Does it have a pour spout on one side?
It have a markings of oz AND liters.

This thing boils water faster than you can put your instant coffee in your cup! Awesome. I use it with a pocket rocket and it nest right inside this pot along with a cup and utensils. I had to squeeze my pocket rocket feet in a little to fit the pot on top but once done it is a great and sturdy fit. I just put the pot on the stove before lighting it. Love it!
How wide is the inside of the heat exchanger,...
How wide is the inside of the heat exchanger, I would like to be able to fit my DIY tuna can stove in the middle, it is just a simple single tuna can with holes that the pot sits straight on top of, the heat fins will distribute the heat AMAZINGLY!
Dimensions of the stove are are 4.9" x 6.2". I'm assuming the 4.9" is the width. I hope that helps, because I don't have a clue as to the diameter of a tuna can.
Also, people have done testing to see if the fins on the Eta and Jetboil pots help with homemade alcohol stoves. If I remember correctly, the consensus was that the fins didn't make enough of a difference to warrant using them. I believe the lack of effectiveness was due to the engineering that goes in to designing the burner on these stove systems to work with the fins. Alcohol stoves have a completely different flame pattern that isn't effective with the fin design. Then again, your mileage may vary!

will this fit on top of my MSR pocket rocket stove
yea it fits very well. Make sure the canister is on level ground though, it likes to rock around when it gets to a boil. I got a full pot of cold tap water to a rolling boil in 3 1/2 minutes while useing the MSR pocket rocket and the Primus EtaExpress Pot - 1.0L.
Great Item to Make Your Buddies Jealous
I boiled water in less than half the time of my fellow backpackers this past week which is SOOOO awesome. They all wanted one.
Standard cannister fits with room to spare on top. Have not used the small frying pan yet for cooking, but carried it and it made a great lid for the 1L. I'm a little paranoid about the heat fins on the bottom of the pot, but simply stash frying pan 1st, heat fins embedded in frying pan, then other gear as fits into the pot. All into the mesh drawstring bag. Weight is very minimal.

I have a primus gravity MF. Will this fit onto the top of that, or will the heat exchanger on the bottom of the pot make it have too small of a bottom?
With a stove diameter of ~4inches, and the EtaPower pot's overall diameter of 4.5in, the pot's heat exchanger circle should sit right on top of all the legs of the primus.
My Peak1's circular top fits just inside the 2.1L EtaPower pot, so well that it sometimes lifts the stove up with the pot!
