A Coleman F1 and an MSR titanium kettle that I've been using for 5 weighs about the same as this. Don't forget it's the unglamorous gas bottle that's the heavy bit!
In fact if you look closely at the primus site you will see that the 230 gramme canister contains that amount of gas but canister and gas combined weight 390g i.e. about twice the weight of the pot and stove combined.
By a weird coincidence, last night I weighted the following items from my two person catering set: Coleman F1 stove, MSR Ti kettle, Alpkit MytiPot, 2 x alpkit Tifoon, plastic lighter, cut down dish washing sponge, Primus Powergas 100 cartridge, small Nalgene container of cooking oil and a strap to keep the whole lot inside the Mytipot. Weight was 650g, which I think is a real world useful weight.
Tip: by the way it's good practice to weigh a totally full and a totally empty fuel bottle of the size you normally use on your kitchen scales so you have a good idea of how much you have left. It's probably more accurate than giving the canister a shake in your hand!
