Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT POT FOR THE MONEY I bought this pot 10 years ago and use it every time I backpack (atleast twice a month). I see a lot of "cons" from people saying this pot is heavy, yes, it is heavy when you are comparing it to titanium. "Heavy" just means well constructed. To clean it after a meal, I simply toss in a hand full of gravel with some water, close and lock the lid, and shake vigorously. I have cooked over camp fires and gas stoves. It also works great for storage; this is what I store in my pot: one large cup, one MSR dragonfly stove, two large spoons, salt and pepper shaker, match container, and toothpick container. This is my oldest and favorite piece of camping equipment.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Durable and convenient, but heavy This is a solidly-made pot. The lid fits snugly during cooking and the locking handle is a good design feature. Adequate size for 2-3 person meals. Works best with white-gas type stoves (e.g., whisperlite-style stoves with the external fuel bottle, or old optimus and svea stoves). Also works well on an open fire. However, the stainless steel construction also makes this fairly heavy by today's standards - over 1 lb. But that also makes it fairly bomb-proof, too - over the years mine has been stomped, dropped, kicked and tossed, and except for some blackening on the exterior from use on fires, it's none the worse for the wear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from For Hardcore cooking! If you like big meals over open fires then this is the pot for you. You can throw it right in the fire and boil your meat and potatoes and then add some gravy mix and eat right out of the pot. This ain't your mommas fine dining gear. It can get blackened, burnt, crusty and downright gross but when I get home a quick scrub with a copper brillo makes it shine like nearly new on the inside and out. This is heavy and durable! The clasp on the lid holds it tight and protects the more delicate foods from being crushed in my bearbag. I've used this pot for 600+ field days and it is still in great working order! I like it so much I bought one of each size!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Smart Design, Great for Pairs My husband and I generally backpack together, and for a long time we could not find a pot in which we could cook a decent 2-person meal-- well this pot is awesome for us. First of all, it is the perfect size that even though it is on the larger size, it still fits on our lightweight backpacking stove. It also has a great design with the handle folding over the lid-- it really provides great storage. We keep our evaporated milk and other more granular items in it, and it keeps things in great shape. It doesn't burn on the bottom, and it seems to hold up very well. I would recommend this pot to anyone.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Made my own nesting camp kitchen! This thing is a classic, and now I know why. None of the nesting cooksets have a nice stainless pot you can cook with over a fire, so I picked up this bad boy and voila! Put a couple of MSR small deepdish plates on the inside, little spice, soap and oil containers, a copper scrubby, some MicroBites utensils, and a small towel, lighter, and there it is! Tiny camp kitchen that locks itself up and you can throw off a cliff, then go down and get it and cook yourself something with it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Pot This pot is everything you need it to be. The lid works as a plate, the pot boils water or is large enough diameter for frying and everything stays right inside. I use a supercat stove and everything I need fits right inside. Stove, snuff-out can, wind screen, fork, spatula, alcohol bottle, lighter, and scouring pad for cleaning all store right inside and lock securely.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It does fit a dragonfly MSR stove I bought this to neatly contain and protect my Dragonfly MSR stove, not including fuel bottle. It has plenty of leftover room for a lighter, pepper and salt, small rag, the bottom and side aluminum shields and little tools that come with it. The pot is big enough for morning tea and enough to fill my 1 liter Thermos with more tea (motorcycle camping solo or two up).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome, when nested w/1.5 s.s. pot Awesome pot, especially when nested together with 1.5 l s.s. pot and nylon mesh stuffsack from MSR Alpine 2 Pot Set, and REI cheap (but hardy) alum. pot gripper (Clamp handle #3475-5385). Stowaway pot is tough s.s., which can be scrubbed w/anything, even sand from the beach. Is wider, as opposed to deeper, making it easy to fry inside bottom of pot, has long, folding non-coated handle, making it perfect for use on campfire and the handle's clamps hold the lid on like a vise, keeping any contents secure during transport. But, it doesn't come w/stuffsack, nor do the smaller Stowaway pots nest well inside it, due to their clamping mechanisms on their sides. My ultimate goal: a tough, 2 pot nesting kit for 2 person kayak camping, which would be small enough to fit well in kayak, and hold and secure my MSR WhisperLite stove. Preferably usable on campfire. I tried and returned (gotta love REI) several nesting cookware kits, including non-stick. But these can't be used on campfire and merely nesting non-stick pots without keeping them separated with towels, etc. will start wearing down coating and most pot grippers will damage coating. Titanium was out due to cost, uneven cooking and food sticks so its tough to clean. MSR's Alpine 2 Pot Set in s.s. came closest to my needs. The 1.5 l s.s. pot fits the Whisperlite perfectly, but the 2 l pot was a little big and while nested, the whole thing rattled, with nothing holding the lid on and keeping the contents in but the nylon stuffsack. Also, the pot gripping tabs on the alum. pot gripper sold w/Alpine set started bending the moment I squeezed it. This gripper is way too lightweight and won't hold up. Solution: I nested the 1.5 l s.s. Alpine pot inside the 1.6 l Stowaway. Perfect fit! I then bought the dirt cheap, REI alum. pot gripper noted above. This gripper is plenty strong, although it is not the most comfortable in your hand. It will grip the Alpine pot and the Stowaway's lid fine. For the price, its perfect. The Stowaway clamping handle keeps everything together and I use the stuffsack from the Alpine set to keep everything clean. MSR Whisperlite stove, scrubbing sponges, lighter, towels, salt/pepper, etc. round out the kit. I used my $20 bonus card on the Stowaway and got it cheap. I know it is not for the ultra-lights, but this makes the PERFECT s.s. kit-see pics. HEY MSR, if you're listening, I love your products. But start selling the 1.6 l Stowaway as a kit w/1.5 l s.s. Alpine pot, good pot gripper and stuffsack that doubles as a sink and you will have a real winner.

Hello, does the MSR ALPINE STOWAWAY pot 1100 ml fits in the 1600 ml pots? Thanks

Asked by: bololapin
No, it doesn't. The locking mechanism on the 1.1L (same as on the 1.6L) prevents it from nesting inside. Too bad!
