The best in it's class
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I just love the JetBoil Personal Cooking System. It boil water in just less than 3 minutes and you can make coffee, hot chocolate, hard boil egg or anything with the hot water. Everytime I bring the JetBoil for camping or hiking, people are impress with how fast you can boil the water.
Great for what it is made for
While it won't cook gourmet camp food, it is great for what it does. It boils water superfast for my morning coffee which sometimes can't come fast enough. Great for freeze dried meals and reconstituting dehydrated foods. Easy to use, packs up everything you need in one hand unit. I use it all the time.

Boils in pretty much any temperature.

Fast as Hell
Got this baby for Christmas and LOVE IT. Super light and good looking, not to mention it boils water wicked fast. I held a race with my friends pocket rocket in 5 below zero weather, and the flash boiled two cups with plenty of time to spare over the rocket. Great for a hot beverage in the backcountry and light pasta dishes, this is a great stove for anyone who says their a weight weenie. Also a nifty little spork holder on the side. (at least that's what I use it for.)
Getting my water going for my morning coffee.
just add water...
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
The perfect solution for one to two people. Partner this with Mountain House dehydrated meals and you are set. Just add water! Boils water FAST, cools down just as fast. The neoprene does not burn and is cool enough to handle bare-handed all the time. The best is how it all components store in the main canister. It has never failed me and the gas canisters go a long way. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for dehydrated meals and boiling water.
love it and use it when ever i go camping. buy this jetboil if you need something to cook with. i did read that you cant actually take this overseas though.but`, i love this so much that i am thinking of getting the big pot later so i can cook mass quantity. the one thing that i might add are these tips, READ ON.Tips1)read directs, before use. made a big mistake and did not do this.(flams are dangerous with out cannister on)2)practice using before you actaully go camping.3)know that food can burn to the bottom, so could be best to just boil water and add to the food later.
Noodles in the wilderness
T and I just dried out some wet wood ass we set up camp for the night. He brought along his jet boil so we could travel light and eat well. We made some noodles went to sleep and hiked early the next morning. This product is very convenient for the mountainous folk.
Does One Thing Well
If you want to boil water I do not believe you can find a better stove. They work great for packaged foods, coffee, hot tea and I have cooked pasta in it a few times. With the additional coffee press you can make a great cup of Joe.
It burns too hot to cook eggs or something that needs to simmer on low heat. I bought a Brunton stove to handle those tasks.
This stove has been very reliable and burns hot. I have had the best luck with the Jetboil fuel.
perfect for what its made for...
i dont think there is anything better for just boiling water. very lightweight, compact, and effective. used it on several 7 day+ trips where instant oatmeal, java, and mountain house were my daily meals. for mountain house nothing is easier...just boils, pour water in packet, and wait 10 min. there is no clean up. for oatmeal i would usually use the platic bottom cap as my bowl so i didnt have to clean the aluminum mug. Not the best option if you plan on cooking meals with all of your own ingredients. for freeze dried this is super simple, fast, and reliable! highly recommended.
Jet Boil at camp
What a great tool... you can make hot water while you are out hiking or chilling at camp. Amazing stove!
Perfect for dehydrated meals.
These are great for Mountain House (and the like) meals. Wicked fast boil and then pour the water in the meal pouch. I've never cooked food directly in it, but I can see how it would be a little hard to stir food being so narrow. I had a problem with my first one when the sparker quit working. The warranty replacement has worked fine although it can be hard to start when the temperature is below freezing. I keep a pack of matches with it just in case...
This thing heats up really fast. I also enjoyed the indicator on the side that showed how hot the water was. The lid was a nice feature. The lid functions as a normal coffee cup lid that you can drink from, handy for making your coffee in. Also pouring from the cup was worry free since it is a spout too. I'd recommend using this if you are in the market for a stove.
My JB has accompanied me on multiple overnight hikes and one long deployment over the last year. Durable, reliable, efficient. This is not the stove you want for cooking beanie weenies next to your camper, but it is perfect for lightweight hikers/climbers for rapidly and efficiently boiling water for food, coffee, sleeping bag hot water bottles. To maintain efficiency for early morning brew-ups, keep your fuel canisters warm in your sleeping bag while you sleep. I was stung by the hot steam a few times while pulling the lid off after boiling, but I eventually figured out why they put a small hole in the rubber lid - for threading a dummy cord from the lid to the handle on the cup! 1 gripe: the needle valve is not very functional. Your intensity options are basically off, full throttle, and afterburner... Perfect for quick boiling, bad for much else...
skeptical about the bulk and weight at first but it was ideal for 8 day backpack trip. for two people using it for oatmeal&coffee in the morning & 2dehydrated meals at night 3 days of nonstop rain at 5000 to6000ft elev it used only 1and a part small cans of fuel . my last comparable trip we used 4 fuel canisters with my whisperlite. Also cold, wind, and rain don`t seem to affect the jetboil as much.
I just got back from camping and I used it every day while on the trip! I love it. It's small, handy and very useful.
Well.. I love this thing but i had igniter problems from the start and after just a few uses it will not ignite on its own. The igniter wire that sparks basically burned up and there is nothing left of it. Definitely an issue that needs to be addressed. Sorry guys gotta send it back!
