- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
This is a great stove for heating water. It boils quickly, and uses fuel very efficiently. I have cooked ramen in it once and it was a bit of a disaster, its really best for heating water and dumping into your freezer-bag or dehydrated meal etc. On Colorado trail last year (so decent elevations) I was using one of the normal size gas cans every 10 days or so, with ~3x big mugs of hot beverage, and ~4 cups of hot water daily for rehydrating meals. Also the normal size cans fit nicely into the canister, add a small dishrag to the top so things dont shift and its a great little setup.
Compared to the other JB's...
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've used pretty much all of the Jetboils. The regular one, in modern-day standards, is too big and heavy for light and fast stuff. The titanium didn't do the job for me, because it was too fragile---it burned too easily while trying to melt snow or actually cook in it. The TI one seems to only be good for boiling water.
But the SOL seems to be perfect for me. With barely any weight penalty (vs. the TI), it is fully functional, more durable, and a good size.
The plastic bottom cup tends to crack, which kinda sucks if you actually use it. But since you probably don't, it doesn't suck. Like, at all.
I HAVE ACTUALLY SEEN ONE OF THESE THAT HAD BEEN USED MORE THAN TEN TIMES AND THE PIEZO IGNITOR STILL WORKED. Actually, it'd been used for over a year and it STILL LIT. Although I've never had any of my JB lighters work for more than a few weeks.
For personal or 2-person light-and-fast stuff, the SOL is the best JB out there. I've taken it all over the world, and appreciate it for what it does: cook, boil, and melt stuff without making me angry for carrying it "all the way up here."
This thing is GREAT!
First test of this little burner. Really a great package! Amazing how fast it gets the water to boil. A lavish way to have portable fresh coffee brewer regardless of where you are - not even out on the trail but just any place at all you want to take a break and have a cuppa!
I was astounded how quick and easy this was to use. Make sure to order the coffee press too - it fits conveniently in the unit too!
Best lightweight stove for my money
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Stop here. Buy this one. I recently decided to invest time and unfortunately a decent chunk of cash into lightening my overall pack load. I've used Jetboil since 2007 and my original one is still going strong even if it does need a manual light (ignitor went out this year). So I have zero concerns as far as performance. These things are golden. Here is why I think this model is the best lightweight stove on the market:
- At 10 oz it rivals some of the stoves that the ultralight backpackers have been using for years but is arguably much more user friendly. Many of the published stove weights don't include the cup/kettle they use. With JB, it's part of the system.
- Fuel: when comparing stove weights, many forget to consider boiling times. The JB is so fast and efficient that you will use less fuel compared to other stoves. The small 100 g fuel canister that fits inside the JB gives you 60 minutes of boil time! Thats over 50 cups (or 25+ full Jetboil cups). I only boil water when backpacking, so for me this works out to EASILY being able to get by on a small canister in a week. I figure I could go 10-15 days if needed.
Summary: there are lighter stoves out there, but when you factor in ease of use and fuel efficiency, the real value is here. i wouldn't have said that before the Sol Ti model, but JB shaved just enough oz to make a case for even ultralight nerds to give this a chance.
Jetboil Sol Titanium in Action
My son making breakfast.
Jetboil Sol Titanium...Awesome!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I bought this a little over a year ago to replace my Markill and MSR Pocket Rocket stoves. I've used it on 3-4 trips(20+days) now and I love it! It's really light, packs efficiently with all the components nesting inside the pot(along with a 100g can of fuel), is super-efficient and boils water faster than any other stove I've seen. I've used it well above 10,000' in the Wind River Range and it's performed flawlessly. As others have mentioned, it does burn HOT even when turned down low. However, I still have used it to make pancakes, eggs, hashbrowns and fry trout all in a MSR BlackLite fry pan. You need to keep the pan moving so you don't burn things or better yet, use a diffuser. The neoprene cozy and handle can be a little unwieldy when the pot is full but this is only a very minor issue and I wouldn't let that deter anyone from getting this.
Pricey? A little. But definitely worth the money!

Making tea with my Jetboil Sol Ti
Just wondering if one of these would work...
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.
Jetboil Sol Ti Rocks!
- Gender: Male
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
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.

Nice little unit to keep you going
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.
JetBoil Sol Ti at work
Fastest way to make sure everyone gets their coffee on a chilly morning camping...fire up that JetBoil Sol stove.
Ultra light and great for fast hot water but...
...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!
