This mug has become my go to mug. At 3.8" dia x 5.1" high it works great with alchy stoves. Similar dia. to the BPL Firelite 550 but 2" taller. Still very compact with hardly any weight gain. Has enough volume (850ml) to boil 2 cups of water without filling to the brim or boil over.

Extra capacity when needed without having to do a second boil. Has handles & a very well fitting vented lid with a handle. Mine weighs 2.82oz.

wonder pot/mug for compact, solo cooking system on 01/01/2011 10:38:45 MST Report Post Print

The MLD 850 rocks for simple solo cooking in the pot! The pot practically hold around 800ml which is plenty of room for anything I make for myself on a solo trip. There is room to boil water and to cook the food in the pot. Small mugs often required me to cook in freezer bags which is sometimes nice, but it's good to have the option not to do this. This pot is one of the lightest on the market at 3.7oz including lid and handles. The lid has straining holes which can be useful when makes a variety of foods. This pot and can hold the UL Caldera, stove, eating utensils, lighter, and fuel for several days in a small, compact package. The pot is narrow enough for hot drinks not to slosh out as you drink from the pot, which often happened which I used larger diameter mug/pots. Drinking from a pot/mug directly can burn your lips if you try too soon after you have taken the pot off your stove. The Snow Peak HotLips Silicone Lip Protector have removed that problem for me.

The only downside to the MLD 850 is that since it has a moderately narrow bottom, it is not as fuel efficient as wide bottom pots such as the Evernew .9L (wide).
