Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
If you like four-ounce fuel canisters, this pot is great, even for two people. The canister nests perfectly in the pot. Then you can drop in your stove, handle and matches/lighter, place the lid on top and secure everything with the mesh bag. No rattling or shifting in your pack.
The thing left to be desired is measurement marks on the inside of the pot. There’s only one tick mark at 750 ml, which seems arbitrary as many backpacker meals call for water between 300 and 600 ml. The included bowl does have measurement marks, but I haven’t found much use for it beyond that—usually I’m either eating out of the meal bag or drinking out of the pot itself. As a matter of fact I accidentally melted my bowl when it got too close to a flame. Now I just use a Nalgene to measure water. One less thing to carry.
This pot is great for two people if you don’t mind cooking two meals one after the other. It only takes a couple minutes for water to boil. Plus even if the pot was big enough for two meals, you can’t divide the water accurately because there are no tick marks inside the pot.
