Another way to save weight is to reduce the amount of fuel you need to carry, and with the Primus Primetech concept the heat exchanger system combined with a windshield can drastically improve your cooking system.
The PrimeTech pots are designed with efficiency in mind, making the best out of every ounce of fuel used.

There is nothing not to like about this pan. I have had one for some time so can attest to its durability, but will buy another while stocks last! You know how it is nothing stays the same for long. Its weight falls by the wayside when you look at the efficiency of the thing. I use it in summer with the stove first developed with it in mind with the windshield that comes with it, and the fab Alpkit tube stove in winter with ally wind break. Everything bar a gas cartridge fits inside my pan set, even with the winter stove - the bowl that comes with it, a small titanium pan for whatever, cartridge stand in summer, spoon, stove, tea, lighter/firesteel, pot-grabber for said Ti pan and my lid, spares. Why this fascination for fitting the gas in the pot? You only have to put all the other odds and sods somewhere else. And I use an alloy flan tin as a lid instead of the one supplied - it won't melt or burn, and the alloy lid/extra food prep/eating surface is unbreakable and closes down on the whole shooting match. I have used this pan with super light Ti BPL stove burning wood collected en route! A bit disappointing on boil time, but fun, and the pan smells wonderfully of wood fire for many uses after on gas. It works well enough on meths stoves but I don't feel there's anything like the fuel savings compared to gas, so consider this a gas or other multifuel stove realistically. My best buy. Yogabob.

Paired with an Alpkit Koro stove ideal for my individual cooking purposes. Well made quality product - boiled enough water for my mug of tea in under 2 minutes (no wind though!). Looking forward to putting this through it's paces later in the Summer.

The Eta 1 litre pot was delivered in West Cumbria by DPD if you are not at home or have no where it can be left, it is a 60 mile round trip to their depot so this may be a consideration. The Eta pot is excellent with a handy bowel. The pot is very stable and boiling water is made simple with the venting in the lid stopping it from becoming unstable and also acting as a strainer. The down side is you can't pack a large gas canister and cooker in the pot due to it's wider lower dimensions. So for cooking it is great but for streamlined backpacking it's not ideal.

Haven't yet had the opportunity to use the pot in anger, so can't comment on boil time. However, am impressed with the build quality. The heat exchanger fins are covered on the outside of the pot, unlike previous versions. This helps protect the fins and possibly (?) adds to heat conservation. The 1 l pot is just the right size to fit in most boil in the bag brands (with a bit of coercing).

The heat exchange feature of these pans really makes a difference to reducing boil times. I often carry an MSR Titan Kettle to use as a big mug (works really well with a pot cosy insulation sleeve), and if I use the Titan Kettle for boiling water instead of the EtaPower I really notice the difference in boil times. I easily get an extra third to a half more canister life using the EtaPower. When I use the pan with high output stoves with a small burner head (I use an MSR Pocket Rocket and a Primus Express Spider) the pan works especially well as all of the flame is contained within the heat exchanger ring: even when on full power, you can feel hardly any heat getting past the heat exchanger - its all retained and used for cooking.
