Familiarity: I've used it several times

Purchased 2 pairs for use on an extended backpacking trip and they worked perfectly. Easy to wash and quick to dry, weight almost nothing and take no space in the pack. Odor free (well almost) after wearing several days and the fit was just right for me and I hike in a kilt.

No, it cannot be used as a fry pan as the metal is way too thin. I tried and it immediately oil-canned from the heat even though my stove was set to simmer. Makes a great lid and plate though. If you want a lid to fry in, try the Primus stainless steel pot set. It has a much thicker bottom with a layer of aluminum sandwiched inside. Of course that makes it a little heavier to carry. The pics are the Primus fry pan.

The pot works great but for the life of me, I can't understand why they made the "fry pan" with a corrugated bottom. It's not non-stick and with the grooves, you can get any utensil to the very bottom causing food to stick and burn. Also, with the pot handles deployed, the lid doesn't fit very tightly and sits at an angle. The pot works fine and is very efficiently with the heat collector on the bottom. I think the better option is the set with 2 pots, one being nonstick and a flat lid/fry pan also non stick. The lid fits tightly. This set comes with grippers rather than attached handles.

I have saveral stoves and fuel bottles from Optimus, Primus, and MSR. The threads are all the same but the sealing lip on the fuel bottles are quite different on the MSR vs. the Optimus and Primus bottles. The top inside of the MSR is tapered similiar to a funnel and will work wel with a round o-ring (MSR stove pumps). The Optimus and Primus have a flat surface below the lip of the bottle with the verticle side above that contains the o-ring (flat in the case of the optimus stove pump) from bulging outward and creating a leak when compressed too far or due to pressure inside the bottle. Use your MSR bottles to carry exyra fuel but use an Optimus bottle with the pump.

The off/on valve on the pump is a handy feature to save the pressure in the fuel bottle. Simply turn the bottle over to the "off" position and when the flame goes out, close the valve on the pump. The pressure remaining inside the fuel bottle stays there reducing the pumping the next time you use the stove.
