"How did you find that place?"
He asked me, I'm glad he posted this thread, I was going to mention this but never got around to it, I warned the people in the store they might be selling a lot of these soon, this seemed to excite them a bit, so I'm glad they actually did.
As to how I found it, I don't only hike and explore in the woods, I also hike and explore in my more local environment, chinese stores tend to have odd things, often completely random, for example, this one I've gone to for years just to see what they have, and they never had these lighter pots.
Be warned however, the spot weld is VERY weak, and I would not trust this pot for a long hike of months. I recommend carefully cutting off the handle then carefully filing down the spot weld metal to get rid of edges. That's actually the reason I didn't promote these any more here, you can see visible rust on the weld, or something dark and reddish. I really wish they had sold these without handles, that would be a really great pot then, flawless really, just super thin stainless, lighter than all ti pots out there, and very durable, but the weak spot welds made it a bit too sketchy for my taste.
The 10cm pot is about 600ml, the 11cm is about 750. Only the pots with the black lid knob are light, the ones with the brown knob are far heavier gauge, but also I believe would hold up better at the spot weld.
Speaking only for myself, I would not bring this pot on a 7 day trip, but I would use it on a 3 day trip. Also, during my testing, I noticed a fairly significant difference in boil times over ti pots of same diameter, quite a bit worse, not sure why, but it's repeated and certainly was present.
However for $3.50 a pot, that's not bad at all. I got these originally for my 6 dollar cookset project, but not flimsy $6, a durable and strong set. For the 750ml, the only pot online I could find that had been lighter was the bpl one, but that one didn't have a real lid, so this is actually the lightest pot of its kind including lid in the world I believe. These are nice lids, they will actually hold pressure in, and are not heavy, the 600ml weighs only 21 grams for lid.
