    REI Members get back an estimated 10% on this item as part of their annual member refund.

    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    by fromNice Pot! Perfect pot for boiling water! I used a diping cup to get the boiling water out and it worked great!

    by fromLow cost, light alternative to titanium Almost as light as the equivelent titanium pots, but at a much lower cost. Can bend if you really bank on it, but I've had not problem with mine for the past 5 years I've had it and it goes everywhere in the mountains with me. Lid doesn't generally fit tight (have to flex the pot a little), and difficult to pour. Can pour with handle, but usually spill a bit. A simple pot gripper works fine on this pot though. I only use mine to boil water in, but believe food would stick pretty badly on the bottom if cooking in the pot. 2 quart size has been perfect for solo trips (1 quart for freeze-dried food and hot cocoa, 1 quart to fill water bottle), but am buying the 4 quart size now to minimize the number of times I have to boil water when with others.

    by fromI like it I have had this pot and the non-stick version that I no longer see here. Great pot for the money. Especially great starter pot. There are plenty of things to spend money on when starting outdoor activities. This pot does not have the rings on the bottom that reduce sliding around on the stove. I prefer the version that does not have the bail and would probably cut the bail and tabs off if I were to buy another. My current one uses a pot grabber instead. It will ding easy but just ding it back out and keep going.

    by fromReliable, cheap, lightweight choice I have been using this pot as my backpacking pot for 8 years now. I am on my second one, since the first one was bent up inside my pack during a fall while I was walking XC on a talus slope. I use this for mainly for making one-pot suppers. I do simmer the food inside the pot, rather than just boiling water and pouring the water into a freezer bag to rehydrate the meal, so clean up is an issue. The pot has always cleaned up well for me, if I am careful not to scorch it. From time to time I consider switching to titanium, but this aluminum pot is so much cheaper and works so well that the tiny amount of weight savings with ti pots has never seemed worthwhile. Save your money for more important gear investments and buy this. One feature this pot has that is a rarity nowadays is a bail handle. This is useful if you ever find yourself cooking over a fire rather than on a stove. A bail handle sits above the pot, further away from the fire or coals, making it easier to remove the pot without burning yourself. You can also rig a tripod, if necessary, to hang the pot over the flames. This item meets everything I ask of a backpacking pot. If you are more of a backcountry gourmet, you may require more from cookware than I do, but if you do basic simple food prep, this is a basic, simple pot that will last you for years of good use. It does acquire small dents and dings over the years,but nothing that affects its useability.

    by fromGreat inexpensive pot This is a great backpacking pot, reasonably light and inexpensive. Easily cooks for two people, probably more. I'm quite happy with how stable it is on my Primus Classic Trail stove. The lid fits well. Hasn't been banged up too much yet, so I can't comment on durability. A pot lifter is a must, though - the handle is difficult to use, especially when the pot is full of hot water.

    by fromAwesome, lightweight pot During the summer, i am an avid backpacker. i spend nearly all my weekends cruising the mountains. this pot goes with me everywhere. I have cooked so many meals in it, there's no way i could keep track. it is fairly easy to clean, the best trick i have is put a handful of dirt, rocks, or sand in it with some water, close the lid and slosh it around for a while. comes out sparkling. (avoid big rocks due to denting). It has been perfect for all my two man trips and holds just enough food for the both of us. it's been on roadtrips too, and has stood up on them. it is actually suprisingly durable for being aluminum. it was in perfect shape till my dad decided to punch in the bottom. that was 3 years after buying the product. it will probably be replaced with the same pot, however. very stable, nice size, give it five stars for all the memories.

    by fromSimple and effective This is a very simple, inexpensive, and effective pot to meet your basic cooking needs on the trail. It dings and discolors easily, but it is far cheaper than similar sized titanium pots. There used to be a bread making attachment that worked with this pot, but it doesn't seem to be made anymore.
