Does anyone know if this will fit a fuel canister and a pocket rocket? Referring to the 700ml size. Thanks.

A 110g Gigapower canister slips right in but the Pocket Rocket is just a bit too long.

I suppose you could unscrew the burner and remove the pot supports if you really wanted or needed to.

Thanks for the pictures! Appreciate it. Is there a stove you carry that does fit inside or am I just SOL unless I go with the 1L?

The SnowPeak LiteMax stove folds down much smaller than the Pocket Rocket and would fit (I have both). Or many of the small alcohol stoves.

Of the canister stoves I have, these fit:
* Snow Peak Litemax * Snow Peak Gigapower * MSR Micro Rocket * Soto Windmaster
I would think this Kovea would fit too (along with many others) but don't have it to try: https://www.massdrop.com/buy/kovea-titanium-stove
Personally, (so far) I've only been taking mine to the park and on my short woods walks. I take it almost daily though. If/when I get to do a real trip, which will I take? I honestly don't know. It depends on the day you ask.
The Litemax is lightest and seems to lay flattest and most compact. It simmers acceptable well.
The Gigapower fits fine and is great for boiling water. It doesn't want to simmer though, the low range adjustment is too touchy. At least mine is that way. So I won't take it.
The Micro Rocket isn't the lightest but nests acceptably well. It seems, at least in sheltered conditions to simmer the best, which is important to me.
The Windmaster is also quite light but doesn't nest quite as nicely in the pot. I have to put the stove in first then put the canister on top. It burns nicely though, has an ignitor that really works, and I can imagine situations where the better wind resistance (even when using a wind screen) would be appreciated. It simmers acceptably well but probably due to its slightly larger diameter, not quite as well as the LiteMax or Micro Rocket.
Before buying my last three burners (Litemax, Micro Rocket and Windmaster), I searched Youtube looking for reviews. It seemed I could find something like a kazillion reviews stating how light each is and how fast they boil. Personally, I didn't care about which one burnt the fastest, I wanted the one that burnt the slowest (simmered the best). Also, I tend not to burn a stove full blast, it makes me feel like I'm wasting fuel.
I wanted something that I could add 16 ounces of water to a 700mL cup, add a full pack of Knorrs Red Beans and Rice (or other), bringing the level precariously close to the top and be still be able to simmer 7-11 minutes without boiling over. At home under sheltered conditions, my Micro Rocket probably wins out, but just by a tad. In more real world conditions (any wind at all) they'd probably all work fine.
I probably won't be able to decide and take all three ISO burners plus my wood stove (mostly for ambience). Hiking with my dog, they can call me Four Stove Dog. Well, maybe not. :)
I'm old though and my time in the woods will be just that, time in the woods.
As for weight, I'm probably not as much an ultralighter as most here. (I joined specifically to get the 700mL BOT) Personally, I've just lost about 70 pounds (31751.5 grams) of body weight so I'm not gonna fret too much about which burner weighs 10 grams less, just which one fills my need best. :)
Surely more than you wanted to know, sorry about that.

No, definitely not more than I wanted to know! I appreciate your in depth response greatly! All good info.
