    I use the minimalist as well for about 5 years now. It's the only pot I carry.
    Esbit stove, a lot of pellets, a lighter, the spork and the finger things all fit inside.

    I've been using the Kmart grease pot for 6-7 years now. I think it cost around 6 bux.

    Coleman also makes some little aluminum pots that come in a kit. I bought them at Wal-Mart.

    Don't forget the old canteen cup either.

    you can get "canteen" cups like this that will fit on the bottom of a 32oz Nalgene bottle so it takes up 0 room in your kit assuming that you already have the bottle to carry water .

    Thanks everyone for the tip on this. I got one and it does work great. I was able to boil two cups of water in only a couple of minutes and it works great with the sleeve. The collapsing spork was a nice addition, too.

    I've manged to reduce my pack size considerably by taking an extreme minimalist approach. It's really freed up room to carry a few more luxuries

    Esbit stoves are great, tiny and it's sooooo easy to make sure you have the right amount of fuel for your trip.
