Just wondering if one of these would work for three people, or should we get one for each person ?
For boiling water for tea this Jetboil can provide enough for 2 people, but would only be large enough to cook a meal for one person. If you're looking to cook a meal for 3 people, I would suggest supplementing this stove with the group pot: http://www.backcountry.com/jetboil-3.0-liter-helios-fluxring-cooking-pot
so if I remember right this one is 0.8L so to put that in perspective that is about 27 oz or about 3.3 cups so you could possibly get 2 small meals out of it but if you want to heat up water for more people and want this type of jetboil I would go with the sumo it has a 1.8L pot
D, I used my Jetboil Sol Ti on a 4-day trip with 4 people in Olympic National Park with NO problems. We also had a MSR Whisperlite, but rarely used it because the Jetboil was so easy to use and so fast to boil. Jetboil recommends 0.5L / 2 cups / 16 oz as max fill line. I push that to approx. 0.6L / 2.5 cups / 20 oz with no reservations (Caution: the Jetboil, because of it's tall build, has a high center of gravity, and can be more susceptible to tipping when over-filled). I don't use my Jetboil for cooking/sauteing. It only gets used for boiling water (think: oatmeal, cous cous, instant rice, freeze dried food, coffee/tea/hot chocolate) and it boils like no other (hence, the name). At camp I would boil two batches of water for four servings of freeze-dried food. While those were re-hydrating, I'd boil water for tea for everyone. Repeated boils never seemed like a burden and there really wasn't ever waiting for food or hot drinks.
The Jetboil cooking system is not great at "turning down" (as in simmering). If you plan on cooking/sauteing meals, consider adding Jetboil's 3.0L pot (as Micah L. recommends above), or, consider a different stove / cooking system.

I've been using Jetboil stoves since 2009. I started with the Flash model and upgraded to the Sol Ti in 2011. Here's why you should own one of these stoves:
Stoves are COMPACT and assemble QUICKLY: All components - stabilizer, 100g fuel canister and burner - fit inside the cooking vessel (pot). Packed size is 6" x 4" diameter = volume of 75 cu.in. (1.2 liter). Assembling components takes about 30 seconds.
Stoves boil FAST: The burner has an integral push-button igniter that has you cooking in seconds. With Jetboil systems there is no pumping or priming or other "fiddling" that is common with liquid fuel systems (Note: I used the excellent MSR Whisperlite liquid fuel stove for 20 years!). The pot has a "FluxRing" heat exchanger welded to its base (provides more metal surface area for the burner flame/heat to come in contact with). This technology allows Jetboil to boil two cups of water in two minutes.
Stoves are EFFICIENT: The neoprene cozy that wraps the pot has a temperature indicator* that lets you know when water has reached 160 deg F (perfect for hot drinks) allowing you to turn stove off sooner. It takes much more energy/fuel to bring water to a full boil. When this feature is combined with fast boil times, a 100g fuel canister can boil around 12 liters of water. When backpacking, I typically use one 100g fuel canister per person per week.
*Note: the temp indicator is NOT included with the Sol Ti pot cozy (to save weight), but IS available in the Sol pot cozy that you can buy separately - highly recommended.
Stoves are LIGHT: My Sol Ti system weighs 16.9 oz (= 1.0 oz stabilizer + 3.6 oz burner + 5.2 oz pot/cozy/lid + 7.1 oz 100g fuel canister). My Flash system weighs 21.5 oz. Note: I don't pack/use the included 1.1 oz cup/skirt cover.
In my research, I haven't found a complete system (fuel, burner, pot) out there with lighter weight or faster boil times!
Snowy 11,000' breakfast in Holy Cross Wilderness, CO:
I've been a happy owner of the original JetBoil for many years now, but recently decided to give this new generation a try. The Sol is two-thirds of the weight of the original, but more importantly, boils water in half the time--saving a lot of fuel. I got to test this stove extensively on a few different mountaineering expeditions and for 9 days on the Wonderland Trail. At altitudes of 5,000? or less, it boils two cups in about a minute. Another upgrade for the new generation is feet for the bottom of the fuel canister, which provide added stability. The Sol is reliable even at moderate altitudes--I've used mine up to 10,000' so far.
The neoprene sleeve is a little too thin, and the handle a little too flimsy, for handling the pot full of boiling water using your bare hands.
Overall, this is a great product that is really easy to use, yet still lighter than just about any stove-plus-pot cooking system out there.
Weighing around 16 oz with a 100g fuel canister, the Sol Ti is not only one of the lightest backpacking stoves out there, but a very efficient and high performing unit. The stove boils water in no time, and assembling & packing everything back into the titanium cup is a breeze (the stabilizing tripod in the bottom, then the burner upside down, then the 100g fuel canister, and also the pot support if you wish, which I don't use). One could easily cook ramen noodles in the cup too, but I wouldn't cook anything more "viscous" because with it since it isn't exactly a le creuset...heats up too fast and hot; even at its lowest level, one could easily burn the food (not to say it can't be done, if you do, good for you~!). I personally use it solely to boil water with it because it's not exactly easy to wash the cup out in the wilderness and don't want to attract any animals to my tent since I don't hang it with my bear bag.
Fastest way to make sure everyone gets their coffee on a chilly morning camping...fire up that JetBoil Sol stove.
...hard to cook things on low heat with the included pot support and stabilizer without burning. It takes some finessing =) but WOW it boils fast and conserves that precious fuel!
Best piece of gear I bought last year. I was easily over 11,000 ft and near freezing temps and the JB had my water boiling in just over a minute. Super lite and easy to pack. Purchase this item if you want a quality field stove added to your pack.
Finally got a chance to use this. Seemed to boil water even faster than my original JB. Havent had a problem with it getting too hot as some have complained however I turn it off just as it comes to a boil, I think if its left on boiling for a while it may get too hot.
The ignitor however wouldnt work for me, my old JB the ignitor was always finicky but could usually get it going, was hoping the new redesigned one would function better but couldnt even get a spark. Plan to exchange it and see if I have better luck.
Ok maybe a dumb question but here goes...
Should I be worried about scratching the inside of the Ti cup? You know how on Teflon pans, you're not supposed to scratch the surface with another metal or the Teflon will seep into whatever you are cooking. And since you practically store everything (fuel, burner, pot holder, etc) inside the cup, wouldn't you be prone to scratching the inside a lot?
Is it the same way with these Jetboil Ti's (or any Jetboils for that matter)?
I have this paranoia that I buy this, scratch the inside of the cup while camping, and get paranoid about the food I'm eating.
Is there a materials science major here to ease (or validate) my fears?
Hey there, good question... you are fine if this scratches and the titanium gets into your food... Titanium is not a poisonous metal... so you would be fine... below is a little blurb I found from the Google machine:
Health effects of titanium
There is no known biological role for titanium. There is a detectable amount of titanium in the human body and it has been estimated that we take in about 0.8 mg/day, but most passes through us without being adsorbed. It is not a poison metal and the human body can tolerate titanium in large doses.
Bought this stove for a trip through the White Mountains on the AT. I've never had much experience with stoves so I wanted something which was pretty idiot-proof. BINGO! This stove was excellent. Setup is quick, the stove is light, and this thing boils water VERY fast. The thought that went into this stove is evident. You don't need to carry your fuel in a separate place in your pack because it fits right inside the cup, just as does all the parts that come with this stove! No need to bring a cup, the lid has a sippy thingy on it as well as a strainer. I enjoyed many cups of tea with this stove and it fulfilled all of my needs. The only meal I cooked on my trip was dinner, followed by tea and the fuel canister lasted about a week and a half. Plenty of time to get into town and resupply.
I did much research before buying this product and am very happy with the performance thus far. It boils water extremely quick, is super light weight, and is very compact. Plus i found out that if you ever lose any parts you can just go on Jetboil's website and order the individual parts for a pretty reasonable price. I'd highly recommend this if you are looking for the industry leading personal backpacking stove.
Smaller, lighter, & faster, with plenty of little design upgrades from the previous version. Feels as solid as the previous version, which I've had for 6 yrs of abuse and is still working fine. Heats water much faster, love the added regulator. Inside of the jetboil has graduated marks, along with the cup on the bottom. Cup on the bottom has a twist movement to get it on/off which seems more solid. I've only had it out for a few backpacking trips this summer but so far am super happy with the upgrade.
