At first I was going to buy something similar to this only titanium. What a waste that would have been. This pot is nearly as lightweight with a nonstick coating and more even heat dispersion compared to titanium. The included spork is junk so you mine as-well throw that away. I didn't use the cup it came with or the wash bag. The way the handle locks the lid in place is genius though and the strainer holes are a huge bonus. Definitely a great buy and for those of you considering titanium, buy this instead.

At first I was having trouble lighting the stove. Turns out I wasn't using the magnetic thing to clean it before each use. To anyone that buys this stove, you MUST clean the jet before each use. Once I figured that out I was lighting it effortlessly, even in the rain. The stove is powerful wait a fairly good flame control. Boils water fast and cooked for 2 people no problem. The versatility in what fuels you can burn is a huge plus even though I've only burned coleman fuel so far. The leather in the pump was dry when I got mine so I had to put some of the included silicon lube on it so the pump would build pressure. Their are lighter options on the market but I would take the optimus nova over all of them.
