At first, I wasn't looking for pots, but I got them on sale for less than $40, so I couldn't pass them up. They are really light, and I was able to fit one exactly to the ramen biscuits I was going to cook winter camping, so it held them nicely as well as being just the right size. The tops work well, the material transferred the heat exceptionally like I would expect, and boiled much faster than my friend's jetboil in 17 degrees. The handles are ling enough that they don't get hot, and the top has a neat side notch to either hold the top loop up or let it lay flat. It's a great little pot. However, the next morning, I used for a while over really low heat, as low as my litemax can go to heat some sausage and pita with some water to steam, and the teflon burned off some of the bottom. I think the pot is great, and I would de teflon them if I could.
