Likes: For the weight and the price I found this item to be much more useful than the GSI Outdoors Microgripper (Item #GSI31203). I use a Titanium pot on an alcohol stove, which is a little difficult to grab by the rim when the stove is still burning. The Open Country Clamp Handle works perfectly, and from a distance great enough to keep my digits from toasting. It's also handy for grabbing other "too-hot-to-touch" items (like my stove) or wind screen before they cool off.
Dislikes: Well, if I have to say something negative...
Ok, the riveted joint seems a little flimsy and could get loose over time. The size is a little too large to store along my cook gear. But hey, this is why I can grab my pot without getting burned. I stuff it in with my long handled titanium spoon and I'm satisfied.

Likes: Simple. Basic. NO Frills, but what do you need? Used this to pick up my pots (I had a set that I'd lost the handle) and it works well on my cooking grate (I used a regular large round backyard grill replacement grate).
Dislikes: The handles could have been a little longer. I mean it is used to pick up pots of what one would this is going to be a hot fire...more than three inches between me and the fire would be nice.

Likes: Simple, secure grip, very light, and cheap. May not be the most elegant piece of equipment in my cook set, but I'm not looking for style points on the trail.

Likes: Nice, simple, and cheap. It has a strong grip and a recess for snagging the lip on most pots. Mine weighed 1.3 oz. Then I drilled holes in the handle to reduce weight but it only cut .1 oz off the total - probably not worth the time.
By comparison the MSR pot handle grabber weighs 1.02 oz, is a little more elegant design with only a slight loss in stability, and is much slimmer, taking up a lot less room in your cook bag. BUT it costs 5X more, so you be the judge.
