I need some kitchen equipment for solo hiking so I hope so somebody can help with own experience. I want only aluminum, no stainless steel or titanium. I will use with MSR DragonFly stove.

First what I need is small pot (for water, tea, porridge or soup). I find two good choices Optimus Terra Weekend HE or Primus EtaExpress. Both about 1 liter, same price, same weight , almost same construction, have heat exchanger. Diff: Optimus have measurements on side, heat exchanger reduces „time to boil“ by 20% ; Primus have Titanium non-stick coating, heat exchanger reduces „time to boil“ by 50%. I don't find or Optimus have non-stick coating? Maybe somebody know these pots stability on DragonFly stove? What realistic benefit of heat exchanger?

Second thing what I need is bigger frying pan. I need maximum stability and non-stick coating. Best what I found is MSR Flex Skillet for me. Maybe there is some other good alternatives?
