Rip the bail wire off before youíre tempted to use it. Itís a guaranteed design to tip over your water. All our scouts spilled with these.
I like to boil 3C of water often. This wonít hold 3 cups.
The frying pan, with handle, naturally tips.

Like finallyME pointed out, the cup is good.

For low cost, IMHO, the kmart greese pot does a much better job for backpacking. https://www.end2endtrailsupply.com/Stanco_Greasepot.html
This is a good size for 2 people (3.7oz total).

In the end, I have fallen in love with my bombproof-no-kitchen-stuff-sack-needed titan kettle http://www.rei.com/product/649902 4.0oz.
I have kitchen sets that I loan out that use this classic backpackerís pot: 3.8oz http://www.antigravitygear.com/proddetail.php?prod=MK3CNS&cat=142
