Funny..in all the specs and all the links..there never do give a weight.

This incredible piece of kit is not only sturdy enough to boil and serve up to 1.1 litres (almost 2 pints) of water at a time, but it’ll also pack flatter than a typical army mess tin. Just sit it over your gas, electric or induction stove and the sturdy stainless steel base will heat the water inside. Once it has cooled, the tough silicone body will collapse easily into itself, ready to slide into a day pack or rucksack.

I've been toying with something like this. They use this one to get distilled water out of a pressure cooker.
My idea is the reverse; put the tubing in the fire and let water run through it to heat it.
Not pot needed
Just connect the coil to your platy and put your cup or mountain house meal on the other end :mrgreen:

Wacky Practicals has developed a new take on the conventional tea kettle, a collapsible version that is made of silicone. The Pack Away Kettle has a stainless steel base that does conduct heat so it will stay hot after boiling. It is safe for all heat sources, electric, conduction, and gas stoves. Now you can be sure to have tea wherever you go or have a new way just to boil hot water, be it abroad or even on a camping trip. This tea kettle shrinks down to 5.5 cm and expands to 14 cm. It is dishwasher safe too. The capacity of the Pack Away Kettle is 1.1 litres (just under two pints). Enjoy your favorite drink wherever you are. If you are attracted to a tea kettle that whistles, this one will disappoint you. Pack Away Kettle is FDA food safe and weighs 350 grams . To get it shipped from the UK to the USA, it will set you back approximately $81, about half is shipping fees. Please go to http://wackypracticals.co.uk for more information.

We'll just have to wait a couple months for you to find one at a thrift store :)

Over 3/4 lb. for a pot? How much does the Heine pot weigh? nuff said. :P Nice idea though. You will probably see them at Target or Bath, Bed, and Beyond in given time. ;)

Yes, It's a neat "gizmo" :D

My first thought was to have a straight walled silicone pot, filled with water, place directly onto stove and heat to boiling, remove quickly. I think that should work :o

Suddens' idea has merit. Needs a condenser coil?

It's good to think dual purpose when you are designing gear :)
