The Titan Kettle is just the right size to store an MSR canister inside, and utilizing the concave area of the canister, I can include the LiteMax folded up under the canister.

Here's a SORTED list (by weight) of stoves mentioned that I can readily find commercially available (or a modern update that is commercially available).
All weights are rounded to 1 decimal point (some converted from published weights listed by other units).

Fire-Maple Hornet FMS-300T Mini-Stove = 1.6oz
Olicamp Ion Micro Stove = 1.6oz
Olicamp Kinetic Ultra Titanium Stove = 1.7oz
Snow Peak LiteMax = 1.9oz
MSR Microrocket = 2.6oz - excluding piezo igniter
Coleman F1 UltraLight = 2.7oz
MSR Pocket Rocket = 3.0oz
Optimus Crux Lite = 3.3oz
JetBoil Burner = 3.6oz

Here's a SORTED list (by weight) of pots mentioned so-far, that are currently commercially available (or a modern update that is commercially available).
All weights are rounded to 1 decimal point, all volumes are rounded to 100ml unless specified otherwise (some weights/volumes converted from values published in other units).

Snow Peak Titanium bowl = 1.8oz (590 ml) - No Lid
Evernew Titanium Pasta Pot = 3.3oz (700 ml)
Evernew Titanium Ultralight = 3.4oz (600 ml)
Stanco Grease Strainer = ~3.6oz (~2,500 ml) - Kmart Grease Pot**
Evernew Titanium Pasta Pot = 4.1oz (1,000 ml)
Evernew Titanium Ultralight = 4.1oz (900 ml)
MSR Titan Kettle = 4.2oz (850 ml)
Evernew Titanium Ultraligh = 4.6oz (1,300 ml)
Snow Peak Trek 700 Titanium = 4.8oz (700ml)
JetBoil Sol (Ti) = 5.1oz (800ml) - Pot+Cozy+Lid
Optimus Terra Solo = 5.6oz (600 ml)
Snow Peak Trek 900 Titanium = 6.2oz (900 ml)
JetBoil Sol (Al) = 6.3oz (800ml) - Pot+Cozy+Lid
Olicamp XTS = 6.7oz (1,000 ml)

Evernew Titanium Measurements: Amazon.com
Olicamp Measurements: Amazon.com
Snow Peak Measurements: Backcountry.com
Fire-Maple Measurements: www.fire-maple.com
MSR Measurements: www.cascadedesigns.com
Stanco Grease Strainer/Kmart Grease Pot: Amazon.com / www.backpackinglight.com
**Weight for the Stanco Grease Strainer is an estimated weight for pot and lid. The backpacking light article lists a weight of 2.5oz, but Amazon.com lists a weight of 4.8oz. I'm assuming 2.5oz is for pot only.

NOTE: The BPL FireLite has been mentioned, but appears to no longer be available. Some initial googling for the FireLite made me mistakenly think this was a discontinued Evernew pot, hence the listing of Evernew pots even though no one has specifically mentioned them.
