This aluminum kettle/mug works well and has a metal lid with a handle that I feel is better than the silicone lid some other mugs have. I've not yet melted any silicone lid and do not see myself doing so but having a metal lid feels more secure.
I tried to store a 230 gram Primus fuel canister and a small stove inside but the space is not enough for both although it is plenty for just the canister. It will fit a 200 gram canister and the stove just fine though.

I had been looking for a lightweight aluminum pot for alpine climbing and mountaineering. This one is just about perfect, but for the anodizing which adds unnecessary weight. My food scale weighs it 0.2 oz heavier than advertised.

This works great for meals or boiling water for one to two people. I am able to fit my stainless steel cup a towel, my stove inside it and the canister of fuel fits on top of it inside the nice mesh carrying bag.

Great backpacking pot for cooking rice or warming up food. I used this pot for cooking premade rice and meat. It did well but, you will have to watch your pot, as any other, because it will burn to the bottom. I like the fact it will hold 4 cups of water. Some meals will require you cook two cups of water but, after you add the rice or anything else the pot will overflow. Not this one. You can stay small and still cook your meals. The cost is way less than the titanium pots, with weight being close.

Very light, stable on the stove, and very easy to use. Like many pieces of outdoor cookwear, this was specifically designed to nest a fuel cartridge and other neccesities inside the kettle so it saves room in your pack. I was able to include the stove in the mesh sack that the pot comes in and had a nice, contained and organized cookset. Highly reccomended.
