It worked just fine for me! Boiled this pot of water in under 5 minutes, which was 8 cups in order to make this soup with chicken added. This one though has the kettle stand/rack to use my kettle with it.

For those looking at this the big thing about it is the heat exchanger on the bottom of the pots. it helps to heat these LARGE quantities of water much faster than a standard pot. Think of it as a group sized jet boil. Ultralight? Not a chance. Backpacking? Large group cooking, short trips perhaps. Car Camping? It's nice. especially in the cold.
Edit to add: you can use the pots with a canister stove for better usage. be careful if you try to use the wind screen with a canister.

Hey Everyone - I appreciate your comments about the weight of this cookset. As a whole, it is not ultralight, and I'm happy you all agree. That means we've got the right people in our community! That being said, I suggest you look at this cookset as a package deal that allows you great versatility for GROUP cooking.
Group cooking - This does not compare with a solo alcohol stove or a jetboil. The smaller of the two pots is good for 3 people, and the bigger pot will work for 4-6 people. There aren't a lot of options for pots this big, let alone cookset (when comparing to the plethora of pots/sets in the 0.5-1.1 liter range).
Cookset - You do not have to bring everything in this cookset on every trip. Take just the small pot, lid, stove, stand, and screen, and you have a 21 ounce setup that is efficient and easy to use. Going with a bigger group? Then take the bigger pot. Cooking complicated meals? Then take both pots but don't kid yourself that you're going ultralight.
The stove is basically the Trangia Mini Spirit Burner, which is one of Hiram's favorite alcohol stoves.

Finally, the pots don't have to be used with the stove set up. See the photo below of the 1.5L pot on top of my Kovea Supalite Stove with a small gas canister. This could be a nice lightweight setup for a group and it weighs 17 ounces (with a tinfoil lid, not shown).
Again, this is not the lightest stove and cookset and I'm not trying to sell you on it. I'm merely trying to provide an insight on why some people would want this. Thanks for all of your input, as that is what helps make this community great. We'll keep striving for lighter and lighter gear! @Jayceh @shaggymatt @MichiganUL @Fruitbat @koruption

I don't like alcohol stoves, and there are a few reasons why. They don't work at all in the cold. You can keep them warm with body heat, but it's unreliable and won't burn nearly as well. They aren't good at high altitude, doesn't take much wind to blow out, and the reduced atmospheric pressure makes them inefficient on fuel. Whereas a liquid fuel stove with a pump is great in all conditions, and a isobutan stove works well in most cases except extreme cold and very high altitude. Alcohol stoves are probably the least reliable of the stove types I mentioned. However if you're only looking to use it in warm weather below 10,000ft you shouldn't have any issues, and it makes a great choice because fuel is easy to find, its cheap, light, and easy to use. They are handy, but if you're looking to do any 4 seasons hikes or mountaineering you should really consider other options.

I have a 2nd hand stove set that is probably 10 years old, which looks exactly like this one. It's working well but it's heavy, bulky and it takes forever to boil a pot of water. Maybe it's because my set is too old...
