- Q & A
I've used the GSI haulite minimalist for years now. I love it. It works great. for what I've needed. I am a little sick of needing to be smart about using plastic utensils only. That and being a little more health conscience about my cooking material led to the switch. Everything that bugged me about the GSI (which isn't much) is fixed with this. Yes, it weighs a few more ounces. Carry a tad less water... a tad less. The advantages to on fire cooking outway a few ounces in my book. I never use a stove for 3 season backpacking. I take a cube or 2 if just to be safe if I think it might be wet.
1st. It's wider and shorter. This makes balancing it much easier.
2nd. Getting it out of the fire is really easy. The top handle allows for easy stick use for removal.
3. the pour spout... enough said if you use dehydrated food.
4. Extra size. 1 boil gets your meal and drink boiled.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
This little guy is designed perfectly for water for two. By two I refer to Hot beverage and Hot water for whatever dinner you are cooking or dinner for two and then another fill up and heat for a hot beverage before bed for two people. It handles nice, fit and function on a mini stove. This little guy pours easily a must for boiling water in the backountry! We eat directly out of it too. It is super durable and light for the price, titanium is just not cost effective . Stainless steel is though. Here's a picture to show size.

5 star quality. 5 star aesthetic. The spout makes all the difference when pouring a cup of tea. It is smallish but will make two nice big cups of hot water for your favorite brew.
Just a nicely designed, simple, small steel kettle. Feels solid and well made, no gimmicks, versatile shape.
Can this fit inside the Snow Peak Al Dente Cookset.
I have an MSR Whisper multi-fuel stove....
I have an MSR Whisper multi-fuel stove. What pot can I stow this in? I read somewhere a 1.5 litre pot that you guys carry.
This pot is too small. You need something that's at least 4" tall on the inside. I've heard of people fudging it into smaller pots, but you really want to be looking at at least a 2L pot for the best and easiest fit. MSR has several to choose from. Hope this helps.
