Is it okay to use a titanium spoon to stir in that pot?

Also, because of the non-stick coating, I feel compelled to carry the bowl (which I don't really need) just to protect the coating from the canister etc. (I suppose I could use a bandanna)

Am I being overly protective?
Is it tougher than I think?

I don't think you're being overly protective; you are paying for that coating so why not protect it ? When I couldn't find my aluminum spoon right before a big trip I bought a GSI plastic one with silicon over the end. It's a hair heavier than aluminum but the silicon is treated safe and has the added benefit of doubling as a spatula and scraper for cleaning. I actually like it more than my old aluminum one now (which I still haven't found :( ) For nesting treated pots I use my camp towel - a bandana would be just as effective in protecting it, but I like to carry a camp towel anyhow. For solo kits where you place a canister inside the pot I would recommend a bandana or one that's cut to shape to cover the fuel canister at least.

I ended up getting Humangear utensils: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00GTXC1S6

In a way I don't like that the pot is thicker/taller due to the heatsink but it is efficient, distributes heat better than my titanium, and refuses to stick.

I like that I can do Knorr Alfredo without it thickening up and sticking to the bottom.

Bob's Red Mill 10 grain cereal that I'd end up scrapping off the bottom of my titanium doesn't stick and wipes right out. (Steel cut oats aren't a problem even in my titanium)

The same with the mixed dry beans and chicken that I tried to simmer outside in the wind the other day. Practically boiled it over several times, and came close to boiling dry a time or two. It's a wonder I didn't burn it. (Cooked 1 1/2 hours and I didn't watch it very well) Practically rinsed clean. I was surprised, and impressed.

Works for bannock and egg too.

If I carry it, I'll probably take the bowl too. Make a nice water bowl for my dog.
Does anyone know if Massdrop has a phone number? My stove was marked as delivered on 9/30, but I did not receive it. I have been waiting a few days to hear back from customer service after submitting support requests. I'm pretty bummed because I was hoping to use this stove on an upcoming trip. Now I don't know if I should order something else or wait for a replacement...

Mark, just wanted to let you know that I got everything resolved with Customer Service.

Glad to hear that Meghann thank you
Anyone have any favorite fuel canister vendors?

Honestly as far as I can tell the MSR and Jetboils are the same, and I don't really think you can find many "off" brands any more. Seems to be a case of the industry evening out over the years.
How does this compare to the lite series? Those looks more windproof and potentially higher efficiency.

Thanks! Will check it out!
Thanks Jim you answered my question before I even asked it. Recently got a Windburner, no doubt it excels at boiling in all conditions but it's a one trick poney and I'm still shopping for something windproof I can actually cook with.
Would this primus set be worth it over the primus eta lite set on Amazon for around the same price?
Used this stove since the previous drop. Really impressed with it so far.
This is a killer drop! If I didn't have every one of these pieces (that I bought individually and for much more than $70) I'd be all over this action. Highly recommend snatching this deal up!
Would this stove be compatible with the same isobutane containers as any other Jetboil or MSR stove?

It would indeed. You can use pretty much any gas canister that has a 7/16 UNEF threaded connector. There are some exceptions however. See: https://adventuresinstoving.blogspot.com/2016/11/can-i-use-any-brand-of-gas-canister.html

As long as it has 7/16 single thread it should be fine.
Join the drop. This stove at this price is THE BOMB!!!

At $55 below MSRP? Yeah. Pretty much. I don't know how MD pulled that one off. Now, when can they get those prices on the rest of their stuff? :)

$80 is a pretty phenomenal price compared to MSRP.
