There is a good chance that the pot/stove/cone combination weighs less than your watch!
The heart of the Caldera Keg System is the popular Caldera Cone that delivers stability, wind resistance, pot support and the best heat transfer you are going to find in a windscreen. The Caldera Keg pot seeks to minimize the impact on the planet by reusing discarded beverage containers for the pot and lid. On the lip of the Keg there is a silicon band to help protect you from the hot edge. There is also an insulating sleeve/cozy for handling the Keg and keeping your liquids warm. The 12-10 stove includes an integrated primer pan and is specifically designed to run in the higher heat and reduced oxygen environment inside the cone. The fuel bottle kit includes not only a 5.5oz fuel bottle, but a reducer, lid, measuring cup and instructions. All of this has been carefully designed to fit perfectly into the Caldera Caddy that will protect your system under normal use while doubling as a mug and bowl!

Caldera Caddy to protect and hold it all!
Note on Pot Volume: Trail Designs forms a "ridge" in the body of the beverage container so that it rests on the top of the cone. This ridge is right at 2cups which means that you can get 2 cups of water down inside the cone to heat, which is pretty standard for most dehydrated meals.
The TOTAL volume of the container is 0.75 litres, but the top portion of that will not be inside the cone.
