I bought this kit for cooking for two, predominately boiling water for 2 person pre-packaged meals. Also used for boiling water in the morning for hot cereal, coffee and the like.
The pot is a good fit for canister stoves (I use a Giga Ti)- flames aren't wasted around the sides. It also nests stove, fuel canister, mini bic, two sporks and a MSR Nano towel quite nicely.
I was elated when I weighed the kit to see it's 0.4 oz UNDER the advertised weight (6.2) :) the main pot weighs 3.6 oz, the "lid" 1.9 oz and the mesh storage bag 0.3 oz.
the pot can be removed from the stove (w/ the handles extended) w/o the use of gloves/pot holder- you might want to test this for yourself carefully- maybe my hands are numb :)
I'd rather have a lid that was flat (lighter) than the frying pad lid- just don't see me using that much, if at all- that would shave some weight. With the handle though it easy to remove/put back on- without the use of gloves or pot holder.
the measurement markings could be a little more legible, the kit also requires a rubber band when nested to insure it's rattle free
for larger groups, the 900 nestles perfectly into the 1400 kit
all in all, a pretty well made, light kit for two
