This is probably obvious to you all, but this...

Is made for camp stoves, not campfires. :oops: :cry:

Do you have one? I have been looking at them since they were on pre-order, but wanted to wait to get people's opinion on them before taking the leap.

Me too on waiting in the wings. I'd be super careful using one around a campfire but on an alky stove it would probably do just fine. http://www.seatosummit.com.au/products/kitchen/x-pot/

This pot has a HUGE coolness factor but the weight is prohibitive for me. Making a pot collapsible doesn't seem like such a huge space saver, once compared to stuffing a pot with other items to be carried. All this aside, it will be interesting to see how this pot plays out in use. Can the pot be used with the sides partially collapsed, so the pot is in a frying pan configuration? That would add to the multiuse capabilities. Does the silicone side keep the food hot longer? Does the pot hold up to dry baking food inside? This will be interesting for me to watch.

I commiserate with you in your epic loss. :cry: Too cool and too pricey for it to not last for many years.

I agree.

That is an interesting idea.
Does the silicone side keep the food hot longer?
My collapsible silicon bowl and mug cool off more quickly than those made of SS, melamine, wood, etc. Melamine is by far my favorite.
Does the pot hold up to dry baking food inside?
They make pie pans and cookie sheets of it so it does seem likely. Be a lot safer to wet bake with these though.

Silicone bakeware does have its temperature limits. I have some muffin liners to prove that...

I agree with this. I just looked at them and not only is the weight an issue, but the smallest pot size is way more than I want to carry. Maybe they will eventually have an UL version LOL. Otherwise I just keep stuffing my 1.99 ounce "pot" with other items and call it good.

While out at Philmont with the scouts. The Rangers informed us any silicone dishware would retain food odors and have to hung in the bear bag at night.

I wonder if it's fear of an unknown new bowl material that has then worried or if it porous enough to retain food particulates. Some one will have to cool spaghetti in one and report back.
