I just picked this one up at one of our local sporting goods stores. It was marked down to 16.99 for a holiday special, I couldn't not walk out with it!

It too is Hard Anodized Aluminum. Tim, you mentioned you put yours directly on the coals? If I recall correctly this one advises not to do that but I may be wrong. I haven't had the opportunity to use it yet, but I'll let you know what I think after I get some use out of it. Out of the box it seems like a good quality product.

I wanted to try out a more traditional shaped cooking vessel for backpacking. I have the snow peak trekker set and love it for its durability and overall features. But I wanted something wide like the 1400 made by snowpeak but shorter.

I snagged an Evernew 0.9l ultralight.

It is noticeably lighter and the pot will flex some where the snow peak did not but this is like I said. Noticeably lighter. And it's titanium material means stronger than you'd think.

The overall shape means I have to relearn how to pack my stuff. For example, my windscreen wrapped around my water bottle instead of inside the cook pot.

So far I really like the traditional shape of this pot, the wider surface area for my alcohol stoves as well as a traditional and functional lid.

I was able to cook a regular sized complete box of Mac and cheese and have room to add some meat to it such as dehydrated hamburger or summer sausage.

I was able to get a perfect simmer using the simmer ring on my Trangia stove.

No burnt noodles or sticking of the food.

Clean up was super easy with the wide shape.

MSR 1.5L stainless snap down handle. Never used the lid to fry anything thinking pancakes in the morning after that dehydrated pouch wasn't enough.
