The little 1-cup thingie that you send along is just a bit odd for my likes.
The coating on the inside is better than the usual coating. It is a food grade enamel. Meat for human consumption is packed and cooked in them. I add two ridgelines for added strength. I think the capacity is 1.250 cup

Tell us more about what you feel odd about it.

I found this esbit wars video interesting and informative. Notice the stove collection at the beggining of it:

Right on Zelph, John really hit the nail on the head by suggesting your flat bottom pots. In the past I always wondered why people would want a pot smaller than 2 standard US cups. As I gain more experiance with rehydrating food, I realise that often enough 1 cup of water is about perfer. Food that requires 2 cups of water often creates enough food for everyone in camp. Too much food, too much weight, too much packing out left overs, but never enough bacon or garlic.

I agree whole heartedly. I have noticed quite a few people use only one cup of water for their meals. The one cuppa is primarily tea or coffee consumed with energy bars, granola type foods. Europeans generally use one cup of water.
- Repackage Mountain House meals, they have twice the amount of food that I would ever eat.
One package feeds my wife and I. We use Mountain House most of the time for their extreme great taste :) Your idea to repackage is great. ;)

We repackage everything to vacuum foodsaver bags..two cups of boiling water to me is better..one cup for the meal and another for coffee or cleanup anyway.. It's not wasted or excess...it gets used and I don't have to boil another.

The 1.25 cup size has a place in many lightweight kitchens. I include one with every purchase of a Flat Bottom Foster can. ;)
