I feel like it's a dumb question, but you guys almost always have good ideas that I don't think of. What would you recommend for a lightweight backcountry pot?

I am thinking of getting two - one for boiling snow and a smaller one about the size of a coffee cup. Uses will be for boiling snow on a flat top titanium wood stove and with a MSR Pocket Rocket stove. Anticipate making dehydrated meals and hot drinks.

How big would you go on the snow pot?

Thanks!

A fix back east
I use a 1.1 L Mors pot from Four-Dog. 6.8 oz with lid. I put a pocket rocket and a canister in there with some foil and small scrap of fabric for a potholder/cleaning/drying and keeping the pocket rocket from banging around.

It's got a spout for pouring, which is nice.

I haven't melted snow in it though. There's a 1.8 L that's a touch bigger.
