Summary

I'm a big fan of Primus gear and this pot didn't let me down. At 2.1L it can boil enough water to get three Mountain House food bags going at the same time, then get another pot going for some sort of hot beverage. The non-stick works really well when cooking actual food in the pot too :-).

Pros

  • Big size works well for three campers
  • Can carry a fuel canister plus my small stove inside
  • Heat exchanger works wonders to speed up boiling time

Cons

  • A bit large for backpacking but...

I backpacked more with my two daughters this past summer so I got this larger pot to let us boil more water so we could hydrate our Mountain House food packs at the same time and therefore eat at the same time. It is a bit big for backpacking but since I can pack fuel and my Primus Express Stove inside it along with the handle and cleaning soap/sponge it ends up working out.

Plus when I cooked some instant mash potatoes one night and some sort of rice dish the next night, it was really easy to clean up with the non-stick coating. This is my second Primus pot, the other being the 1.5L one that came with the Primus EtaPackLite kit I also use. I really like the heat exchanger on my original pot so I was excited to see the larger pot with the same design.

I highly recommend all the Primus gear I use.  None has let me down yet.
