So far it's been really awesome and I highly recommend it. The one caveat is that this is a great purchase If you like to actually cook real meals in the back country; as opposed to just boiling water and re-hydrating a mountain house meal in a bag. In that scenario, it's worth the extra weight and cost. If not, you're better off just using a single walled mug for heating water on an alcohol stove which is cheaper and lighter.
Assuming you see yourself more as an outdoor gourmet and less as an ultra lightweight backpacker, then you'll find the versatility really handy. It's "pot within a pot" design allows it to be much more then a steamer for rice and vegetables with a few simple hacks.
* The outer pot can be a drinking mug while you're using the inner pot for an eating bowl which is really handy and keeps the pack weight down. Just don't plan on eating soup out of the inner pot because it does have steam holes. It's fine for rice and pasta though!
* Bring some waterproof tape with you to cover the steam hole at the top; then you can use it as a cold soaker to prepare meals with you while you hike. The top clamps down nice and tight and makes it a pretty functional Vargo Bot in this scenario.
* Bring a thin / small metal sheet and mini bread pan with you and you can use it as a mini oven for both steam and dry baking,
* Repurpose a neoprene knee wrap for an insulating sleeve like you see on a Jetboil, and this allows it to cozy cook food pretty well. At the very least you'll be able to hold it and warm your hands while you are sipping hot drinks out of it on long cold nights.
That being said: it's NOT a pressure cooker. The only reason I bring it up is that there is a video out there of the company testing a beta version of the pot with a pressure cooker feature. To be clear this does NOT have that feature, so be aware of what you are getting. I did read somewhere that the company would be selling a pressure cooker lid at some point in 2018, which I will be sure to buy.
Really, I can't say enough nice things about it. I'm looking forward to more Keith products in the future!
