Compact, cleans easy.
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I haven't used the JetBoil Sumo on a camping adventure just yet but it's done the trick on a 6K+ mile road trip. I used to pack an electric burner and an assortment of pots but I can cook up some great one-pot meals with just the JetBoil. I'm impressed with how easy it is to clean and pack, not to mention it's versatility. I'm not so sure I could feed 4 people with it but I can prepare more than enough for two hungry bike racers...
Big Enough for the Whole Family
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have used this in the High Unitas; yes, but the place this gets the most usage in my life is parking-lot lunches and the ski resorts. I will quick as lightning boil up some water for hot chocolate, pass some around to the fam, then put a pot of soup on it to simmer and warm while we eat sandwiches and sip our cocoa in a semi-circle of camp chair around the tailgate.
Pot is huge and the burner gets it boiling very fast. Well constructed. I have dropped it and accidentally kicked it many times and it is good as the day i got it. I alos like how all the parts fit inside the pot when not in use.
Super big pot. Great for a few people eating lots after long hikes .. Its overkill for 1 person but perfect for a small small group of 2-3. JetBoil is the best you can get. you'll never be disappointed.
Which companion cups fit on the burner?
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I just got the Sumo, this thing is awesome. If im going out alone and want a smaller cup, will they fit. Which companion cups fit on the Sumo burner?
No longer comes with pot support
Ordered from Steep & Cheap and the pot support wasn't included. The box shows "Compact Storage" and how to store with support and the instructions show the support and how to use it. So, it looks like it was to be included even though there is no "What's in the box" section saying for sure. I called JetBoil and they said it's not included effective the Summer of 2013, but sent me one free anyways (Excellent Service).
Will this work with the coffee press? Is...
Will this work with the coffee press? Is its diameter the same as the Flash?
Unfortunately it will not work with the Sumo since the diameter of the Sumo is too large to make a seal with the press and the grounds. The press only works with the Flash and PCS lines (Sol, Zip, etc.).
Great - boils quickly and does the job

My family of four is well taken care of with this.
It made me a believer
I resisted getting a JetBoil for years as so people raved about them to the point of religious zealotry, which scared me off. Now that I have one... watch out - you can't shut me up either. :)
JetBoils in general are amazingly efficient stoves, and for boiling water they almost approach the speed of a microwave - superfast. And, they also do it with very little fuel. I couldn't believe the 1oz per person per day stats, but after taking it on an eight day river trip with an 8oz canister, I can vouch for it.
All that said, they work best for boiling water in warmish weather and I would not take one on an extended Alaskan ski trip where you are melting snow for hours on end.
Perfect for families

We have a family of 5 - and there's enough room in this baby for coffee and hot cocoa for everyone. Love this guy!
