I bought this just a few days ago for a weekend camping trip. The couple we usually camp with had an expensive coffee maker, but since they couldn't make the trip, I needed something inexpensive to take with us. Not only did this little pot fit the bill, it actually makes better tasting coffee than the expensive coffee maker! It works very well on our small gas camp stove, and was easy to clean. It also takes up MUCH less room than the coffee maker - guess which one we'll be taking with us on our next trip?!!!
