    by fromFor the price, you can't beat it. I recently purchased this as a backup to my titanium cook set. While it is not as light it is much more compact. The pot is narrower and taller than my ti-pot which slowed my boil time by a minute and a half.(with an alcohol stove.) I found the pot gripper can get my finger tips really hot if I'm holding onto the pot for too long. Instead I use the gripper to put the pot in the cozy and pour the boiling water into my meal. The sip-it lid is super tight and doesn't leak at all when drinking coffee or tea. It is a perfect little setup for a two day or over-nighter.

    by fromGreat solo kit! The best compact solo kit I've found. DIY stuff may be a little lighter, but this kit is well designed. Holds small fuel canister, my Coleman F1 stove and comes with spork and pot grabber thing. The spork is a little quirky but functional. Note, it would be hard to put most small stoves in container. I was able to get the Coleman to fit because it breaks down to two pieces. Lid is great for drinking hot beverages. Cozy is also great. Will cook most solo meals and so far I have not had any food stick to pot. Will hold 2 cups of water.

    by fromVery useful, more than you would think So I just recently got this, and was doing some tests with it to see how it would do with my Snow Peak Gigapower stove. The pot fits perfectly, and the little grabber is okay. More on that later. The spork is okay, but a little weird to use at first. As a test I decided to make one of those meal-in-a-pouch things, which usually just leave you with a really hot pouch because you poured a butt ton of hot water into this plastic/paper/aluminum bag. This is where the cozy comes in real handy. It is just the right size for the singleton puch meals, so you can hold the puch without the annoyance of the hot pouch or waiting for the food to get cold. The little orange gripper isn't too bad, but it does heat up really fast, and as another reviewer said your best bet by far is to just use it to move the pot from the stove to the cozy and then pouring. Without measuring stuff in the cup, it's probably a good idea to mark it at 1 and 2 cup measures. Besides that, this has been a really nice product. That and the little orange bit are the only reasons this isn't a 5 star product. It even packs away nicely. If you have a 100g fuel canister and a small stove, you should be able to fit the whole thing in the pot without issue. The spork won't fit, but it's small enough you can stick it almost anywhere if you need to. Going to run it through its paces in Big Bend in a few days.

    by fromBang for your buck For someone like myself who just boils water for dried meals and coffee, this little guy does the job and the 'system' is very clever. I will probably upgrade to a longer spoon, but the included one does work just fine.

    by fromgreat idea, works for me. I was headed out to Mt, Rainier NP for a 4 day hike. I planned on cooking for myself ( hiking with a small group ). I bought the Halulite Minimalist pot for its simple design and ability to pack fuel and stove in the same container. ( Snow Peak 110g fuel can, Snow Peak GigaPower stove ) The cup cozy and lid were a good selling point too. It worked great for me. Able to boil half a liter of water for my dinner and some hot chocolate. The pot gripper didn't make my fingers hot, the lid didn't cause liquid to spill and my stove didn't scratch the cook ware. Why pack your stove case its just extra weight! It is true I could not fit the spork stove and fuel in the cup. big deal. I almost went with the Snow Peak titanium cup but this just seemed like a better idea.

    by fromLoved it! We bought this last weekend for a two day hike. I wasn't initially happy about lugging around the extra weight but after using it the first night I can't imagine backpacking without it again. The top sealed perfectly although it was hard to get the included spork to fit. After some finagling I was able to fit two sporks, fuel, and a range inside the pot. The included handle insulated the heat perfectly although the steam made it uncomfortable to poor boiling water out. With some practice we were able to find a suitable angle to poor and not get burned....a great trade-off for weight/size savings. The pot holder also made for a great measuring tool as the bottom edge of it marks two cups. I do wish it was a little taller so my titanium REI spork and the included spork fit better. Measurement marks could also come in handy. I haven't tested its durability yet so these things prevented me from giving it 5 stars. All in all this was one of the best purchases I've made in a long time. It was priced well below heavier kits and its performance was above and beyond all of my expectations!

    by fromGood, but not perfect This is a good barebones set. The foam cover is very helpful as an insulator, its easy to take off and dries rather quickly. Simple, stable and functional. That being said, the lid is almost too tight and the spork is difficult to use, but overall a great piece of equipment.

    by fromLight and fast Lightweight and compact, fuel canister fits nicely. Because it is so small, it is a little unsteady on a MSR Pocket Rocket, so you have to find a level spot to set it up. The downside to the size of this product is that it is narrow, so water takes a little longer to boil. I use this only for boiling water as I hate trying to clean out pots in the field. Good product.
