This is a good size pot for 2-3 people for cooking on an open fire or on a stove. Made to the typically high standards that Petromax are famous for, this pot should last a lifetime. The lid fits well and has a marker to indicate where the steam hole is should you need it. The handle on the lid is small and if you have to handle the lid with big fire gloves then it becomes a bit of a challenge to not drop it while handling so I would suggest that you use some sort of hook from metal or even better from a fallen branch. The oven comes well packaged and seasoned ready for use after a quick rinse. The instructions and small recipe booklet are good but ensure that you read the instructions before use so that you dont wreck the patina. The main handle is sturdy and folds down out of the way easily if you are not hanging the pot. I prefer these pots without the feet on the bottom as they can then be used on a stove. The lid has a good sized lip and some fins to allow easy stacking of coals to cook from the top of the oven and also allow stacking of pots should you need to. All in all a good addition to the camping equipment that should last a lifetime.
