    Spotted on fleabay at the end of last month, arrived today from Hong-Kong (aka Shenzen).
    They were kicking around from several vendors for just £9.99 including postage however I don't know if it's automated pricing robots, a hike of shipping fees or somebody noticed the Zebra was £12 but these Mors style pots are now hovering around £11.50. Mind you that's including postage half way around the planet so still pretty good value.

    All stainless construction, there's a strainer inside the pouring spout, the D-ring on the lid has a bend in it so it will always be easy to hook off when hot. If you are into Dutch oven style slow cooked stews or baking it also has a Pie-dish lid for placing hot coals on top. Graduations for 300-500-700ml are stamped on the inside.

    Downsides...
    It's exactly the same diameter as an Ikea hobo stove. Pot won't fit inside stove nor will the stove fit inside the pot.
    The lid is not a friction fit, if you drop the pot the contents will escape.
    People will want to borrow it and not give it back

    That looks a decent bit of kit. Very tempted now.

    I have one that lives permanently in the van. Very tidy bit of kit for a couple of coffees. Not a huge capacity but enough. Build quality is very good for the price.

    Thanks Wayne. £10.37 posted, I've just hit the button. This will be my coffee pot.
