Product Review: Jetboil Personal Cooking System
The lightest, neatest and fastest cooking system around. Launched in 2004 and winner of the Outside magazine 'Gear of the Year award 2004', the Jetboil combines the stove and pot together to give super fast boil times. The 1 litre cup has the fluxring at it's base which doubles the effciency compared to standard stoves and pots. The Jetboil will boil 500ml of water in 2 minutes. This is approx half the time of a standard stove. Half the time taken means half the gas used or twice as much water boiled for the same amount of gas. The cup has a secure lid with a drinking spout and drip free pourer. The burner and gas canister (small size) can be stored inside the cup. The cooking cup has a neoprene cover and handle to insulate the cup and your hand. It also eliminates the need for a pan handle or grabber. The cover can be easily removed and washed. Spare cups and different colour covers are available so two people can use the same Jetboil burner. The burner comes complete with piezo ignition so there are no matches. lighters or priming required.
- Fits standard threaded gas canisters same as MSR & most gas stoves
- Weight only 425g (excl fuel)
- A comprehensive and well thought out cooking system
- Gas canister not included
