As a pot this thing works ok. As a coffee press not so ok. The top is plastic, it lets even coarse grinds through and does't seal very well. It also pours really really bad. I wasted so much coffee and made a mess EVERY time I used it. I will keep it and use it for a pot but will keep searching for a good coffee option in the future

I was please with the coffe press overall. It wil give two big cups of java. It is extremely light weight. Great for backpacking. As always Amazon delivers in perfect condition at almost lightening speed. Ashley

I bought this because I thought it would be a good deal with the kit and the coffee press together. Well, it does NOT come with the frying pan lid. Amazon was great about returning it though, so I will be buying the pot/frying pan and coffee press seperatly. I would give 5 stars because I do think this is a quality product, but the description could be more helpful, so I took off 1 star.

It is functional. For the price it isn't a bad deal at all. Just don't expect to use it for long. There is an issue with the pour spout, it dribbles. Being made of such a light metal, coupled with the skinny and tall shape, makes for an inefficient cook pot. The base isn't big enough to accept much heat, and the sides wick all that heat away into the wind. Even using a windscreen that goes all the way to the handle, boiling water takes too long.

I have since upgraded to a larger diameter heavier pot (the Msr Alpine Stow-away) and the difference is night and day. Even though this pot is twice the size and weight, it's worth it to cook twice as fast. With the same stove, an adjustable soda-can alcohol stove. I'm using half as much fuel for the same amount of work. The base of the Primus pot is just to small to be a good heat exchange, while the side walls act like cooling fins thereby sucking all the heat from flame up the sides instead of into your water/meal... Maybe if you used a turbo-jet single point heat source, but then the food would burn before the rest got hot without continuous stirring.

To sum things up because I'm dragging on. This will make coffee. It can be cooked in. It doesn't pour. It takes too much time/fuel to cook. Great to start-out with if your not sure whether this whole out-doors thing is for you, just remember that there are much better alternatives if you move to higher price points.

Others say it pours bad...and it does. It will make a mess. To remedy this problem ditch the lid when making coffee. The press will let some grinds through but it still works pretty good. It's light yet plenty big enough for press with handle unscrewed, canister and stove, and sealed with the lid.

Very poor design of the lid and spout. The coffee pours so poorly that most of it ends up dribbling down the side of the canister rather than pouring into the cup. Very disappointing. I'm returning this item.
