Description

Boils quickly and stows easily.

Click on the Jetboil Flash Personal Cooking System, and hum a show tune or two—by the time you hit the second chorus (two minutes), you'll have steaming hot delight. Unlike classic camp stoves, this self-contained unit eliminates the issues of an open burner and takes the guesswork out of a quick meal. Finish your food, pack the fuel canister inside the insulated mug, and stow the whole lightweight kit away in compact style.

  • FluxRing heat exchanger system maximizes fuel efficiency and promotes even heating by uniformly distributing flame along the bottom of the cup
  • Innovative temperature indicator is integrated into the cozy to show you when your meal or drink is ready to please your palate
  • Adjustable burner is surrounded by a windscreen to reduce heat loss and improve fuel efficiency
  • Push-button Piezo ignition gets the stove rolling without matches and is integrated into the burner housing to keep it intact
  • Glove-friendly fuel valve allows for easy flame adjustment and afterward, it folds into the burner for safe storage
  • One-liter anodized aluminum cooking cup is lightweight, transfers heat efficiently, and cleans up fast
  • Neoprene cozy is designed to stay in place while stove is in use; it increases heat retention and improves cooking efficiency
  • Clear measuring cup with graduated lines unsnaps from the bottom of the cooking cup for greater precision when preparing meals as well as preventing burns on the hot FluxRing right after use
  • Translucent lid is BPA-free, shortens boil times, and features a drink-through spout for sipping coffee or pouring hot liquids
  • Stove burner and cooking cup nest together for easy storage; 100g fuel canister also fits inside cup but is SOLD SEPARATELY

Cooking up some Ramen on the shores of Bear Lake.

Fast. Really, really fast.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Used my Jetboil Flash for the first time while camping at Bear Lake in Utah, and loved it! This thing boils water nearly instantly. In fact, I mentioned to my camping buddies that I almost wished it was a bit slower to make preparing meals a little less hectic.

I've only cooked a few meals, but the speed, convenience, and portability of this system seems to be unmatched.

Best investment made for backpacking

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I brought this on a 4 day hike in the Smokies and this brilliant little mechanism blew my mind. The water boils lightning fast. Probably faster than my kitchen stove. It is very efficient with it's heat, with little or no heat radiating from the stove section. Very compact and relatively light. No cons that I can think of, if you're on the fence GET IT.

quick 'n' easy

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've used this guy here and there with a friend on some short side-country tours and am vey pleased with its performance. No effects from normal altitudes (up to 11k). Last trip made some oatmeal and hot chocolate before our initial decent and there were no problems bringing everything to a boil.

Multi-function!

The stove sheath also doubles as an excellent (wine) cup.

Camp Champ

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I was solidly on the fence for a few years regarding this purchase. I have a small stove and thought I was keeping it simple with that and a pot for camping/backpacking and also heard that you lose cooking versatility with Jetboils but after trying out my roommates, there really was no going back. I bought this the very next day.

I love how lightweight it is, how ridiculously fast I can make a meal now, and that all the components fit within the container. If you are on the fence, hop off and buy this stove.

Add-ons:

GET THE COFFEE PRESS! Seriously, you will be doing yourself a major disservice going without one.

Perfect Stowaway

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I am a HUGE fan of the jetboil. It's super easy to pack- and just as easy to set up and use. If you are looking for a small compact stove to boil water, there is nothing better than the jetboil. I haven't used it for much other cooking, just because boiling water and pouring it into a cup of coffee or an instant meal pouch is way easier than dealing with pots/pans backpacking. Plus the fuel canisters last a good long while, so you don't always have to be worried about running out each trip. We always take ours out for backpacking trips of course, and even on car camping trips for easy boiled water. Hands down recommend it!

These are Awesome!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I used these on our 3 day back packing trip through Coyote Gulch, UT.
Pros: Super well designed. I wished everything I bought worked this well!

Cons: I wish it had more than one temperature to cook a meal with. Which by the way is HIGH HEAT!

road side coffee

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Everyone knows stoves like this are great for hiking into the wilderness and whipping up some hot grub, but I've found it to be particularly useful while road tripping across the US. Why eat bad gas station food or subway when you can hit the grocery store, pick up exactly what you want, heat it and a fresh cup of coffee anywhere, any time?

great stove

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

this is the best stove to take camping! its super light, and takes no time at all to get the water to a boil!

Perfect camping stove

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Who wants to over complicate something so important. When its time to eat, get out the Jetboil unit, no need to look for extra parts or anything because everything you need sits right inside the cup. Its too perfect and very compact. I have 2 of them.

Awesome for backpacking

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

I've really enjoyed my JetBoil stove. It's efficient with energy and space. It fits my backpacking meal plan very well by heating up soup/drinks/pasta and allows me to cook and eat out of one container. The pot is relatively easy to clean (and I hate cleaning).

I've been slightly concerned with the parts inside scratching the finish but so far so good.

There may be lighter solutions out there, but I've enjoyed the performance, price, and convenience of having the kit already put together for me.

Perfect backcountry

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

My absolute favorite backcountry stove, gonna spring for the titanium next for the colder weather camping, perfect for 1-2 people, simmering water is tricky, but it's all you need if you use freeze dried.

Dinner for two, mountain style.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This Jetboil is the perfect stove for a backpacking trip for two--or even more! While it is a little hard at times to simmer effectively with it (they don't call it the Jet Boil for nothing), I've mastered the art of the Jet Boil slow cook, and have even learned to stop burning my damn oatmeal to the bottom of this thing (Trust me, once you've scrubbed it out a few times, you'll learn.)

Overall, this is a great product--my only grips are that it's a little tricky to clean, and simmering took a while to master. A very solid piece of equipment.

Excellent product for what it is

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Overall, this is great for boiling water quickly, I have yet to actually cook something in it since I always bring freeze dried food with me and cook that in the bag. If your looking to cook for 5-6 people, this isn't your cook set, its basically for 1-2 people. Of course if everyone brought freeze dried food, you could boild water for everyone in about 10-15 mins. It can handle 2 cups of water at a time and boils in it 90 seconds or so, can't beat that.

Portability 5/5 - Everything fits inside when your done
Weight 4/5 - It could be lighter, but its not heavy for what it does
Functionality 3.5/5 - It boils water quickly, I couldn't imagine cooking with it, seems like it would be to much of a hassle to clean up.

Overall 4/5 - Would definitely recommend

I love my jetboil for getting coffee made fast. It is a great addition to any car-camping set up. Not just for backpacking, this leaves your other stoves free for the pancakes. It is so fast too that waiting for coffee just doesn't happen.

Impressive

So much has been said about this stove already, I'll keep this short and just give it 5 stars.

Does the trick

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Boils water surprisingly quickly, and sips fuel compared to other stoves. Packs up very compactly as well. I've used it entirely at altitudes over 10,000ft. and in sub-freezing temperatures. Only complaint is that it doesn't really simmer, but what camp stove does?
