Ounces add up to pounds. You start with the big five, reducing the weight by pounds. And then you whittle away at the ounces until more pounds are gone....

And, I begrudge the lousy un-packable nature of the useless weight of the plastic container. Where do you put it in the pack? On top of all the other irritating things about the stove, it was just another thing to annoy me that I would not otherwise need to pack that thing. Single use items are another thing I try to reduce.
