    so does it hold 24 oz or 30 oz ? Reviews state no way it's 30.

    30.4 oz according to Snow Peak.

    It's tiny really only good for one person meals. Also the bail doesn't lock in the up position so it consistently flops over when not hanging. But the stainless is thick and should last many years of use.

    You can adjust the steel tabs on the side with pliers to make the bail lock in an vertical position.

    I've got one of these snow peak pots and I love it. For the money it's probably the best solo pot out there. It has a bail and handles and a pouring spout, all of which are nice features.

    The handles do flop around a good bit but there's also an easy fix for that which will allow them to stay out and deployed.

    I took my bail off and bent it inward with my hands. Stands up fine now. A great little pot!

    <sigh> -- that's pretty much what I've been looking for.
    forwarding the link to her -- hopefully she hasn't made the order yet! :34:

    Does anyone have the true max diameter of the kettle (the OD). I'm trying to see if it can nest inside another pot.

    How about the GSI SS cup fitting inside? Seems like it would, just want confirmation.

    Used my fabric measuring tape.
    The distance around the bail "ears" and spout is: 16 3/4" or 428mm
    Base of pot: 15" or 381mm
    Height from bottom to top of ears: 3 3/4" or 96mm
    Across the top from rim, to tip of spout:5 5/8" or 143mm
    Need more, let me know.
    You might shave a few mm by removing the bail, and maybe bending the ears in slightly. The bail just pulls out the holes easily, spring fit.

    I try not to cook in mine, anymore. The edge on the spout pour hole is rather sharp. I cut my finger trying to clean gunk from inside the spout. with the welded on spout food can build up in the spout. great for teas and hot beverages.
    It is a well made kettle and a great size for one person.

    I picked one of these up. For $15.50, it won over the 1.1L Mors Bushpot, being stainless, wider, and $10 cheaper. Got it today, already made coffee in it! Just on the stove top, but it works great. I wasn't happy with the Stanley cook pot, the Stanley is too narrow, and was always falling over in the fire, or when I try to use my wood gassifier stove it would just barely fit on the top, a little wiggly, and again, unstable. The Wal-Mart GSI cup knockoff just barely fits in, but the lid won't fully fit down. OK by me, a ranger band will keep it together, and less rattling around.

    Now to get it out on a real fire to soot it up!

    One can take an Dremel or file to the inside edge of the spout to aid food cleanup.
