Pot vs 'kettle'

Im looking at which one to buy. The kettle is about 1.2x as tall as it is wide whereas the pot is the opposite - 1.2x as wide as it is tall. They are both about 1.5L in capacity.

Is the extra width of the bottom of the pot useful in heating the contents faster?

I like the 'kettle' more, but am concerned about it being less effective in bringing water to boil. I wil be using it with an alcohol burner.

I like the pot reason some times I find other things like crawdads I like to cook up but that is just me.

Yes, wider pots/kettles make better use of heat from a stove. Several kettles are really light, but most are around 1 L. Are you sure you need something that big?

Thanks, I'll get the one I referred to as 'pot'. Making better use of heat from a stove is the main reason.

Yeah, I even considered something bigger, but 1.5l is about perfect.
