Cook kit depends on hike. For long trails, I carry a 750ml cup and either a Fuzzy's Little Stove, 0.25 oz if made from a V8 or Red Bull can (and 0.6 oz 1/2 liter water bottle for fuel or a titanium Esbit burner, 0.5 oz. Cone-shaped windscreen, pot lid, long spoon, lighter and a Tyvek/foam cozy to hold it all. That rig runs 7 or 8 ounces.

For short trails, I carry one of the same burner/windscreen/accessory package with either a 500 ml or a 600 ml cup, depending on how small I am packing. These kits fall in the 5 ounce range.

When I'm feeling like going lighter, I use bean-dip cup and the kit weighs 2 or 3 ounces, complete (spoon and all). Matches instead of lighter and smaller plasxtic spoon, etc, will produce the lighter weight.
