    Love the jetboil! It's all you need.

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    We gave this as a gift, and this is what they said, "This is an amazing product! If you have this with you while camping, you won't need anything else. It is easy to use, and does the job perfectly! Would highly recommend this product."

    Field use, Marine Corps

      This is absolutely wonderful. As every other review I've read that made me buy this product it is totally worth it. And in the cold weather training environment we're in now and will be in in January near the Canadian in the mountains this will be a life saver.

      Best way to cook in nature

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      This is definitely a great reliable product for cooking out in the wild on the move. I have used it skiing a couple of times to boil some hot dogs and in extreme cold it still get boiling so quickly and will get your food cooked no issues. Had no issues on the light at all very easy set up and packs down to be an insanely light stove to throw back in the pack. Definitely 5 stars from me!

      I LOVE this thing

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      I have done a bit of backpacking which includes going to New Zealand and Australia. I have had to conserve a lot of space. So I have produced a couple of pros and cons of this product.

      Pros:
      -The amount of space it takes is amazingly small, I mean the whole system fits inside of the cooking cup.
      -I have a spork that I carry around with it in the small spot for it and it works great and keeps it tight.
      -The design of it allows for INSANE time reduction in eating
      -It boils most liquids in about a minute or so. I boil a bottle of water (16 fl oz.) just under 90 seconds. I have a meal done in under 10 minutes every time.
      -Cold nights = awesome hot meals instead of granola and power bars.
      -Most dehydrated "zip-bag" meals only require 1 liter of water or less.
      -Really Lightweight

      Cons:
      -The only way to really simmer is to try to keep the gas regulator as low as possible without turning the gas off. Tough balance sometimes.
      -Cooking for two can get complicated or have multiple boiling/cleaning
      -The Gas container which can fit in the Jetboil packed only is about 100g which is only about 12 boils so on longer trips I carry 2.

      Overall, I would HIGHLY recommend this camping stove. If you are a backpacker and just getting started you need this in your bag for cooking meals. Places where you aren't allowed to have a campfire, you have a stove regardless.

      Best backpacking cook system

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      Jetboil boils water faster than any other system - we tested it against four other stoves while on a backpacking trip in WY. After the first night, everyone started asking if they could borrow my Jetboil because boiling water three times on this one system was faster than if they boiled water once on their system.
      My Jetboil is my top "don't go backpacking without it" item in my pack.

      Easy backcountry food

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      Until I bought a Jetboil, my camping trips were fueled by energy bars and sandwiches. Now that I have this little stove, I've tried a few dehydrated meals and it's so much better than non-hot food. This stove boils water in just a couple minutes and then you have hot food. The recommended maximum fill line is just perfect for most 2 serving dehydrated meals.

      Popular For A Very Good Reason

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      I'll chime in and add my voice to the chorus of other great reviews for the Jetboil Flash. I use this for car camping and shorter backpacking trips. It's not the lightest cook system available, but it makes up for that with ease of use and dependability. To start, I love that I can place all of the Jetboil accessories into the cooking cup, this includes the gas canister. It's nice to have everything together without components floating around in my pack. I've tested the Flash in low temps and high winds, and it's never failed me. I love the large gas valve, as it's easy to twist even with cold hands wearing gloves. There isn't really much else to say that hasn't already been said. I'd highly recommend this for anyone looking for a personal cooking system.

      No Camp Fires in California!!!

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      Okay Californians, if you are planning on going camping in the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Yosemite, or anywhere in California, you should know that campfires are banned right now, so you will need this! Unless you are planning on living off of power bars (but nobody wants that). Since there is a huge drought out there you will get a huge fine for having a campfire. This Jetboil is light and you can store food inside of it. I like to store my oatmeal in there. You can eat straight from the jet boil as well. If you’re a coffee drinker then this is also a camping must! It also gives you the option to purify your water by boiling it, you can do this in the winter by melting snow in your jetboil. This is highly recommended, especially in a drought!

      There are no other stoves out there

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      Seriously, don't even consider looking at another stove. This is your jam. I have never been disappointed by it and neither have any of my other buddies that finally talked me into getting it. The only thing I've seen happen to anyone's is that the igniter doesn't work anymore but he has used it for years. Just do yourself a favor and buy it.

      Less waiting for coffee

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      So I finally bought a JetBoil. I just wish I'd done it earlier. Boils two cups of water in less than two minutes, and the sleeve changes color to let you know when it's done (the "innovative temp indicator" thing listed above... yeah, it's awesome). It's small capacity, sure, but it boils so fast I can run 3x2cups through in the time it normally takes me to boil a small pot on my MSR stove. Not sure if this will be the norm for backpacking, but it's definitely going to live in my car during ski season, and will be my go to for coffee and a sunrise summit.

      Great stove.

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      I recently was charged with outfitting my group (wife, sister, brother-in-law, brother, sister-in-law) with gear for a week long trip in southern utah canyon country. We got tents, sleeping bags, stoves, backpacks, the whole run. All of our gear held up and served us well.
      The Jetboil Flash is great for 1-2 people. I opted for the Sumo for our larger group and to give me a bit of flexibility

      Love my Jetboil

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      So easy, fast, lightweight. I have used my jet boil for car camping as well as backpacking trips. I will never use any other stove. I love reaching a peak/pass whipping my jet boil out and making coffee/tea. It boils water in seconds. LOVE IT!

      The Standard

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      I've used this consistently for years, and at this point, I can't imagine camping without it. It's easy, relatively lightweight, and built to last. I have no complaints, and look forward to many camping/climbing/backpacking trips to come.

      Great Stove

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      The Jetboil system is fantastic. It comes with a Pot which holds up to 2 cups of water (recommended) and the entire unit (including a 4 oz propane tank) fits inside of it. Even on lower heat setting in higher elevations it boils water very quickly and it has been incredibly reliable. The pot also has a lid and a cozy around it (to retain heat better)and it can be used as a cup/ eating vessel if so desired. There is also a small plastic cup portion on the bottom which can be used to contain food/ liquids. Recently, the self igniter button near the bottom portion has broken on mine, but the stove ignites just fine with a lighter (minor concern). When its all put together and packed up, it is a convenient size. There are a variety of after market items you can buy for it as well. I love my Jetboil and it has always worked for me. The best option for freeze dried food prep in my opinion!

      • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

      Jetboil function with slightly more steez. Boil water in a minute, even in the Highlands. If you've never Jetboiled, try it, you'll like it. Cold weather camping, rain, Sodak badlands abuse, I've taken it with me, and have never been disappointed. The only thing I cannot honestly answer is performance above 12,000 feet. But I'm headed to the Bighorns this July, and we will put its name to the test.

      Light, fast, easy and AMAZING

      • Familiarity:I've used it several times

      This product is amazing. I took it backpacking this last weekend on The Lost Coast Trail in California and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved it! If you buy the 4 oz. propane tank it fits perfectly inside the Jetboil with the igniter and the propane stand and everything packs wonderfully into your bag in one piece! Also, one 4 oz. propane tank boiled water 6 separate times and never ran out; it was plenty of propane for 2 backpackers on a 3-day trip. I love the color indicator on the side that shows you when the water is boiling and when it's ready, you'€™ll never waste any propane with this system! One of my favorite features is the push igniter button that easily starts the flame -€“ SO EASY AND SO FAST!!!
      The water started to boil so fast that I barely had enough time to unpack my camera and snap pictures of it (at sea level it boiled in about 2 minutes)!! Ultimately, love this product and would recommend it to anyone!

      Any idea how long a canister lasts? roughly, of course..

      Best Answer

      So many variables to how long a canister will last, but using Jetboil's specs (which are given in liters) a 100g canister will do about 10 liters @ about 2.5 minutes per 1/2 liter at a time, so figure about about 45-50 minutes. For the 230g canister, it's 23 liters, so figure about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Perfect world scenario-10 grams of fuel per liter boiled, or 5 grams per the cup's capacity. Results are going to vary wildly, so give yourself a good margin for error. Hope this helps.

      I mark my cylinders with hashes when I use them. Each hash represents "a boil." Helps me keep track. Would love to tell you how many hashes I've made on a cylinder before it went dry, but I only recently started this process.



      One "trick" for finding the level of gas inside is to pour hot water down one side of the cylinder. Where there is no liquid gas, the metal will stay hot... but at the "waterline" you will feel the metal get cold because the fuel is absorbing the heat.



      Will it work at 10,000 plus feet, or below...

      Will it work at 10,000 plus feet, or below freezing?

      Yes and yes. Here is info provided by Jetboil:

      "All canister stoves suffer a performance drop in cold weather. The colder the fuel, the lower the vapor pressure, and the lower the burner output. The result can be noticeably longer boil times and difficulty lighting the burner with the built-in piezoelectric ignitor. Jetpower?s lower firing rate reduces canister cooling and increases performance. Jetpower fuel, with propane, helps mitigate cold weather problems. We suggest that you keep the canister in a warm pocket between uses and remove it immediately prior to heating your food. Carry an extra canister and keep it warm to swap out with a cold one when necessary, and always carry matches or a lighter as backup."

      Best Answer

      I agree with Eli's research above. I do mostly alpine/sub-alpine backpack trips, mostly above 10,000 ft. Last September I spent several nights (and prepared several meals with my Jetboil) above 12,000 ft with no problems. I did keep fuel canister in foot of my sleeping bag and then kept fuel inside jacket just before firing up the stove (as Jetboil recommends). I also tried a homemade fuel "cozy" - out of a couple can coozies - to see if that would hold in heat after removing from sleeping bag (it only seemed to help marginally and I no longer bring it on trips). The only problem that I notice with Jetboil is that the spark igniter doesn't work at higher elevations (or is that due to colder temps?). I rely on my Bic lighter for ignition (also as Jetboil recommends) when that happens.



      You may want to consider Jetboil Sol stoves (both the titanium and non-titanium versions). These models use Jetboil's "Thermo-Regulate Burner Technology" to work in "temperatures down to 15 degrees Fahrenheit".

      I used this on the summit of Mt. of The Holy Cross 14,005' to make coffee and it boiled the water very quickly. We did a sunrise summit. At 5:30am the temp on the summit was in the low 20's with a windchill in the teens and had no issues boiling the water.

      Where can you buy the fuel canister from, it says sold separately?

      How do you refill the gas?

      What type of fuel can you use?

      I see that msr sells extra fuel bottles, would that work for refilling any fuel canister?

      Any sporting goods or outdoor supply store will sell the fuel canisters.

      Refill is accomplished by changing out the empty fuel canister (attaches to the underside of the stove).

      Use isobutane/propane mix fuel.

      As long as the msr replacement fuel canisters are compatible with this stove, you can use them.

      when you say "fuel bottle" do you mean the bottles used for the whisperlite stove or the isopro canisters used for say a pocket rocket? Any type of canister should work (might be some performance issues with different fules but all have the same type of attachment) but the fuel bottles MSR sells would not work with a canister stove. Canister stoves have the disadvantage of needing a whole new canister when they are empty or getting low.

      What's the difference between this and the SOL stove+cup? Is this one smaller?

      Just to be clear, this is larger than the SOL. The flash is 1 liter and the SOL is .8 liter and is also 0.6" shorter and 3.5oz lighter than the flash (according to jetboil specs) It also has a unique valve to help with cold weather use. I will be posting pics for comparison and also weighing both of them with a digital scale. The neoprene cozy is a little thicker and the handle is more durable on the flash, with the SOL being a little thinner cozy and the handle being a thinner rubberized material, to save weight I am guessing. Hope this clears things up and for those who have never seen the SOL.

      Thanks!

      You shouldn't have any problems. Remember that any canister with a Lindal (EN417) valve will work.

      This might help- http://www2.ing.puc.cl/~cseebach/mountain/stores/index.html

      A quick Google search for climbing equipment stores in Santiago, Chile turns up lots and lots of other options. Basically, it doesn't look like anyone has any problem finding what they need with much of anything. Patagonia and Aconcaqua draw in lots of people, so you know that if there's a demand, there's always a supply.

      Try this from Jetboil or give them a call (888-611-9905)to see if they have more distributors in Santiago.

      has anybody used a frybake pan with a jet...

      has anybody used a frybake pan with a jet boil stove?

      The flash personal cooking system includes the pot kit.
      I haven't used a fry-bake pan on it but you'll probably need to turn the heat way down (lids and low temp are the best).
      The jetboil is probably closer to a torch than a stove. It is a directly aplied flame. So you don't want it to heat through the pan before it warms and then heats it. This isn't the experiment you want to do in the field with your food. Try it at home on a few thing to figure out how not to burn it, seems to be the number one problem. Also if you're using a pot stir very frequently.

      Can't decide whether to get the MSR Reactor, Primus EtaPower or this, please help!

      Stove being used between two people, mainly for boiling water to cook dehydrated foods and making powdered drinks.

      Best Answer

      All great stoves. Based on your needs, take the Primus off the table- it's more than just a water boiler, and of the three, it's got the best ability to actually do some cooking in. It's also the heaviest system of the three, but it does also burn multiple fuel types besides just canister fuel. I own one, and have been nothing but impressed, but again, it's one of my "real food" stoves for when weight isn't so much of an issue. The Flash will suit your needs perfectly for hot drinks and boiling water, but it's still basically a personal cooking system. The 1L cup will only boil about 1/2L of water at a time- too little for two people without another companion cup, and requiring several rounds of boiling to serve you both. If you want a Jetboil system that's more suited to preparing two meals and two hot drinks at once, have a look at the Jetboil GCS with the 1.5L pot. The Reactor is a water boiling classic. They don't call it the Reactor for nothing. Higher altitudes, colder climates, fast boil time, a little better ability to actually cook in than the Flash, 1.7L pot that will give the two of you plenty of water for all your needs with just one round. So, of the three, I would go with the Reactor, but then also weigh it against the Jetboil GCS. Hope that helps.

      Based on the info about mostly being used for dehydrated foods and powdered drinks, I think the JBoil would suit your needs fine. the only run-in you might find is that there are two of you, so there might be some waiting. But I've found that the JBoil beats almost any other stove in boil time, so the waiting might be alleviated. The JBoil is more compact, so another plus. But definetley try to compare them all side by side if possible so you can see for your self. Happy Trails!

      What is the main difference between the jetboil flash and the jetboil sol

      Best Answer

      Looks like the Flash weighs 14oz (1 liter water cup) and the Sol weighs 11.5oz (.8 liter water cup). The Sol has Jetboil Thermo-Regulate™ technology, which allows it to function in lower temps... the Flash doesn't. Thats the only difference... The Sol is lighter/smaller and works better in lower temps... Is this worth the extra money? You decide... I personally like standard butane stoves as I am not as limited to only boiling water like with these systems...

      does it come with the gas canister?

      does it come with the gas canister?

      And you're better off trying to find the gas canisters locally if possible. Since compressed gas canisters are considered a hazardous material, they can only be shipped by ground transportation, and they really nail you for shipping and/or special haz-mat fees that drives the price up substantially for just a few at a time.
