I love this little pot. It's 1.9 quarts. I use it for boiling small amounts of water, to keep the stock warm when making risotto and for boiling pickling liquid, so it's a multitasker
The brand is Krona.
That said, you can bring a cup of water to a boil in one minute in the microwave. When I'm making rice, I put water and some Better than Bouillon paste in a glass measuring cup (which has a spout) in the microwave and bring to a boil to dissolve the BTB.
