the thing i'm wondering about is the coating on it. will that hold up to being used as a camping pot? stuff like mostly boiling water or making pasta. the real reason i picked it up was for baking. i thought with it i could leave the little rack in it and put what ever i wanted to bake in inside it.

IR, you can bake in it. Use a stove that has a simmer mode and you can use Zelph's method of putting a little water in the bottom and when it boils out, it will start to brown. Find a small pie or cacke tin to fill with your baked goods and set on top of the rack. I have baked in it a couple times but not nearly enough to give you a report on the finish of the pot. So far, OK ! ;)

Yes, one for a campfire, they certainly look like they would hold up well in direct campfire flames and hot coals. They are well made pots. They can be picked up by the knob on top, no side handle required. Easy storage.

Well it took awhile to find the larger one but I finally came across it at our community yard sale. I think i remember telling Daren I thought they would surely nest together :oops: :oops: Well, the larger one is bigger in diameter but shallower in height so they will not nest together! :(
