Great Cookpot and Storage
Review by Ona I.
Verified Buyer
This actually was cooler than I had hoped. It would make a good cook pot, sturdy and easy to handle. I have not used it yet over a fire. It actually was cool as it was big enough to hold my cookstove (Firebox Nano) and all my stuff for my get home bag. So I like it a lot.
It’s a pretty good mess tin
Review by Kathreen D.

I’ve had this mess tin for almost 2 years now, and I’ve used it to cook in multiple times. It’s lightweight, fairly durable, and it has a lid. My only complaint is that I wish the lid 1). Had a handle or something to help me take it off while cooking, and 2). I wish it sealed better on the tin itself. I’ve normally used this with an emberlit fireant stove (which will fit inside of the mess tin) and over a fire on a grill, but never directly in the fire itself. It comfortably holds 2.5 cups of water, but you could probably get about 3 cups in there if you really filled it to the top. The rectangular shape also helps with pouring water out of the mess tin. At first I thought the handle felt a little flimsy, but it hasn’t broken yet, and I don’t think it will under reasonable use. Overall, I think this is a good mess tin, albeit a little pricy.
When you need a cooking pot and water holder in a pinch.

Stores in my EDC pouch to hold emergency store along with fuel tabs. Functions to cook, boil water/dry food for emergency roadside applications. Lightweight, watertight, and flip out handle.

Not impressed.
Review by Lexa D.

Using it for storage of items in my kit and as my cooking container. Very thin and cheap aluminum.. Had to bend the edges of the lid to get a tight fit and the handle flops everywhere. Not what I expect when buying an Essee product. Their knives are great but this is just okay. It will do the job but it could be a lot higher quality.
Great for Building a Survival Kit!
Review by Korey Y.

MAKES A FANTASTIC SURVIVAL KIT: The handle is nice if you need to cook with it. You will still need to wear a leather glove because the handle gets hot. It is very light weight. You can boil water in it, and it is durable enough to dig with. There is not an airtight seal on this tin because it would melt if you cook on it or make a sticky mess if you dig with it. It is an ideal size at 32 oz for a survival kit.
