Great for instant noodle and more

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I have to admit that it boils water so fast that you don't have time to cut the onions or other stuff for your instant noodles. I have been using it for years for camping and backpacking. My only complain is that if you leave the lid at the top while cooking, it will get out of shade after many use and very difficult to close the cooking pot. The cooking pot itself can be use to carry 2 extra JetBoil canisters.

Favorite pot!

This is a great system for multiple hikers. You can boil 1.5 liters within a couple minutes, which can be used for freeze dried food, coffee, tea, and so much more. This system is light, easy to clean, and very compact. I was a little worried about the stability, but so far I have not had a problem. If you are cooking food from scratch, then you need to use oil and keep watch. This pot heats up fast. Overall, I have really been impressed with my system and can't think of a single negative comment.

Favorite pot!

Great Pot!!

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

1. Boil water fast
2. Easy to clean
3. Light.
4. Keep the food warm (Because of insulation sleeve)

Isn't it enough ? =)

Great Pot!!

Good System

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is a great system for boiling water. Especially for that quick cup of coffee in the morning to get you going. Does a good job at reheating food as well. Not great at cooking food start to finish though, the temperature is just too hot. Very stable for how big the pot is. Good for 1-2 people/meals at a time.

Could I use this with MSR DragonFly gas stove?
I am afraid the outer cover miy melt.

Best Answer Responded on

Hey Ted,

It's going to be better with a Jetboil specific stove performance-wise. The Dragonfly has a higher BTU rating, but it will work. You're right about the possibility of the cozy melting, but I've also heard stories of there being some problems with the brazing on the flux ring when used on higher output stoves. A little heavier, but a solution to think about is the MSR heat exchanger. It will work with a lot of different pots from a lot of different manufacturers. Primus also makes some pots with a built-in heat exchanger that work well universally with a wide variety of stoves. Hope this helped you out.

Thank you for your comments.
I will consider to buy MSR exchanger.

I need a white gas stove when I hike over 10,000f.

can you use this over the fire?

can you use this over the fire?

Responded on

Not recommended as its heat exchanger is really built to take advantage of the Jet boil burner rather than the uneven nature of a fire. Additionally if you were to leave the neoprene insulator on that would likely catch fire and melt as would the rubber grips on the handle unless you took great care to keep those out of the flames. Short answer; not recommended.

Best Answer Responded on

Arthur is absolutely right. For cooking over an open fire most of the time, a similar sized pot that I would recommend is:

http://www.opencountrycampware.com/category_fbd677dca775/subcategory_62ff4e5aa021/product_65b49091ede1/

It's inexpensive, you don't have to worry about trashing it, and it works.

Responded on

Since the purpose of the flux ring is to help conduct the heat more efficiently around the perimeter of the pot, it should actually work BETTER over a fire than other pots without the flux ring. The down side would be the carbon buildup on the intricate folds of the flux ring that might eventually reduce its efficiency. If you don't mind cleaning the ring, go for it.

Can I use this Jet Boil pot on my Rocket...

Can I use this Jet Boil pot on my Rocket Pocket stove?

Responded on

Yes, you can, but it won't have the nice fit and smooth functionality it would if you used it with a jetboil stove. You'll probably be better off just getting a regular, lightweight, titanium pot - Backcountry.com makes a great, inexpensive one.

MSR also makes a heat exchanger that you can add onto a pot retroactively to get many of the benefits that you can with a jetboil.

Best Answer Responded on

Diana, everything I have read says that the Jetboil cookware is best used with their stove, to best maintain the compatibility between the flame size and output and the heat exchanger on the cookware. How much of that is designed to sell more of their stoves, I do not know. It seems as if it would be safe to do if properly monitored.

Responded on

The Pocket Rocket has a little more heat output than the JetBoil GCS and a lot more than the PCS, but it's just an aluminum pot. Just keep an eye on the cozy. You'll lose some of the efficiency, and use a little more fuel than you would with an all JetBoil system, but you will get the benefit of the heat exchanger that other pots without it don't have. A comparable pot would be something like the Primus etapower 1.7L, in case you're examining your options.

Good addition!

I used to fly solo, but with my girlfriend now wanting to come with me, the ability to cook more is nice!

Will my titanium spork scratch the aluminum...

Will my titanium spork scratch the aluminum on this?

Responded on

So the jetboil is anodized Aluminum and does not have a coating. Very hard to scratch.. same material that is used on Mountain bikes. If it does scratch your not going to get teflon chunkies in you meal.

Responded on

The answer is yes. It may not scratch as easily as regular Teflon, but a titanium utensil will still scratch it if you scrape too hard. When it is scratched it will no longer have it's non-stick effect where it is scratched. Once you have even a small spot where the non-stick isn't working, cooking and dishes become much more difficult than they need to be. You can get away with using a metal utensil if you are careful while stirring and scraping up those last bites, but I would personally go with a plastic folding spork like the one sold by MSR. They're light, durable, inexpensive, and it is nice to not have to worry about messing up your pot.

my new 1.5L pot in action. picked up the pot for my PCS kit and it worked great. Still boils water in a snap and cooks for 3 like a charm

Posted on

The plastic lid on my pot does not fit well. Packing up the pot and lid in the morning when I break camp has become a real struggle in terms of getting the lid back on. And the fit is tight enough that when I boil water, I end up having to place the lid on my pot upside down. Is this normal? Is anyone else having this problem?

Best Answer Responded on

Sometimes plastic does strange things when heated and cooled, and your problem is pretty common with the GCS pot. It should be reversible- Boil some water, turn off the stove and dump the water out, try to get the lid snapped on, let it cool in place. That should reform it to the proper size. If not, call or email Jetboil and explain the situation. They'll either replace it as a warranty issue, or sell you a new one. Contact- info@jetboil.com or 603-518-1600.

Has anyone else had problems with the plastic lid warping?

Responded on

YES...so its not just me? It seems to shrink after cooling off from the heat. Then you get to play the "Who can get the lid on" game?

I propose that Jetboil use a different material.

Review Title

I only use it for boiling water, and for that purpose its the best one Ive tried so far. I have several days out in the mountains every winter in just a tent and beeing one of the lightest and fastest boiling pots I always make sure its in my backpack when I go out. It probably works just fine for regular cooking also, like the other reviews mention. Great pot.

Popcorn anyone?

Great Addition to the Cup and PCS

I have cooked everything in this. fish, burritos, popcorn, frozen pizza, many a freeze dried meal, and countless other meals all with success. Very light and the surface is easy to clean and pretty non-stick even for eggs. I use it with the Jetboil PCS and the support/stability kit. I use it as both a pot for liquid and prefer it over the fry pan for most frying because of the taller sides.

Jetboil is all you need!

After many years of using a Peak1 stove and an old Mess Kit, I recently replaced EVERYTHING with Jetboil products. I purchased the PCS, the Gourmet Set (to get the fry pan and stabilizers), and the 1.5L pot. Since i fish on my trips, the frypan was a must although I have cooked fish in the 1.5L pot too.
This is without a doubt, the single best gear purchase I have made recently!
