Jeff, you're pretty much right on the money with the AGG 3 cup pot. They are cheap, and have a non-stick finish (admittedly i haven't cooked a real meal in mine). The other thing is, because they are fat and short, they have better efficiency in boiling water. They also are already black in color, which helps the efficiency. Because of their shape, the SP series of titanium cups are only really meant to boil water. With the AGG, you can make pancakes, eggs, soups etc, because of the wide surface area to cook on. The aluminum is plenty durable. Titanium is terrrrrrible for cooking. Goodluck not burning anything. I def think you're going to be good with what you have in mind. And dont be a fool like me and buy the stupid heavy neoprene zippered cozy.
O yeah, who needs a pot grabber when you have an extra pair of socks to cover your hands? Wool is naturally flame resistant
