Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $35
You can do more than boil water in this pot.
- Hard annodized aluminum
- Stove, bowl, cup all fit inside of pot
- Larger diameter pot more efficient over stove
- Could be slightly larger in volume
Read in another review that you can cook in it and wanted to be sure before I took it on the trail for that purpose. Because it has a very wide lid you can actually cook in this pot.
I made one of my favorite meals, Fettuccini with Salmon. I used the Lipton Knorr Pasta Sides Alfredo and a foil packet of Smoked Salmon purchased from the grocery store. The recipe calls for 2 cups of water and the total contents just fit into the pot. I cooked it over a Trangia mounted in a MoJo stove stand and also used a wind screen.
The recipe calls for bringing the water to a boil and then continue simmering after the noodles and salmon are added for about 7-8 minutes. The Trangia simmer ring allows for a nice simmer. Be sure to leave the pot lid off and stir occasionally.
It worked just fine although it would have been easier to cook this in a straight sided pot, but for a very light cooking set up, the Trangia, MoJo stand, and GSI pot makes a great combination as the stove fits inside of the included cup and bowl set which fit inside of the pot. It makes a very compact set. The MoJo stand and wind screen fold completely flat for ease in packing. Yes, it works best for heating water but can also be used for cooking.
