Great Boil Times

    I've long been a MSR WhisperLite fan but have heard enough great things about these that I had to give one a try, especially for hot drinks. Very impressed so far, particularly with the boil times. Fuel's a bit expensive but I'll survive.

    Life Saver

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    This stove has literally been a life saver. I live on Mountain House meals while I am camping. If you are as impatient as I am you will love the lightning fast water boiling capability. Nothing beats being able to cook up a hot meal on the mountain on a cold day. . I absolutely love this thing!!!!!

    Really is Flash

      Boils super quickly. Great for using with camping dehydrated meals and good for backpacking because it is pretty light. Wish it could cooking other things too, but it pretty much only does water. Can be hard to light if it is at all windy. Pretty easy to use.

      Fast Efficient Cooking

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      This is my second unit. The first one was put through the ringer on I'd dare say approaching 1,000 boils with only 1 instance having to send it in for ignition rehab (which Jetboil took care of fast and friendly service). That Flash had been all over the place including a summer living on the side of a mountain fighting wildfires where every meal and coffee demanded it's use. Having a fast boiler was key as having a quick meal weather an MRE or Mountain house freeze dried was important at the end of a 16 hour shift. I performed next to no maintenance on her and probably was on the verge of abuse and she never let me down. Unfortunately that unit got lost but it only took me 2 seconds to order my next. Now being able to heat the water for an easy meal while out with the littles as well as fueling my morning coffee addiction quickly is the task at hand. The kids enjoy watching the clock to see how fast the heat indicator turns colors and the meal begins. Packs up nice is light weight and very efficient on fuel.

      Fast Efficient Cooking

      Hot water in a flash!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      The Jetboil Flash stove is hands down, the easiest and most convenient cooking system when you need to boil water. It's basically idiot-proof, and comes will all the things you need to make some hot water for a backpacking meal in a nice contained package. Water boils in a flash (as the name implies), so you'll be feasting before your other mates without Jetboils even get their water lukewarm. Everyone should have one of these things in their bag!

      That's what They Said

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I'm playing off of everyone else titles but seriously. What more is there to say than that JetBoil is the leader in water boiling system. Now they make cool covers for their pots and not to mention you can get so many accessories to help make your camping trip a bit more comfortable. Got this as a wedding gift and I still get thank you texts. SO if you are looking for an awesome gift with an amazing price point get a jetboil for the happy campers. :P

      It's a Jet Boil, What Can I Say?

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      Best backpacking gear purchase, hands down. We use this at the crag, in the parking lot before running races, at the resort or trailhead when skiing, and (of course) backpacking. Easiest portable stove I have used, hands down. As an engineer, I also appreciate how nicely everything packs down. I have considered upgrading to a bigger cup, but so far, have managed to make due with the standard size.

      Versatile

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I've used this stove from car camping, to backpacking, to just up a summit for sunrise when hot coffee is a necessity! Lightweight, easy to use and hasn't failed my hungry heart yet!

      What everyone else said

        I'll just back up what everyone else has said in the reviews. Solid, lightweight, easy to use stove! The perfect stove for daily hikes so you can enjoy your cup of jo up at the top or for long multi-day backpack trips. Boils water in less than 2 mintues. It also is a great price compared to other backpacking stoves.

        So. Much. Yes.

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

        This thing definitely lives up to the hype. Small, light, boils water fast, etc. I also love that it turns orange when it's all ready! Nothing better than being able to boil some hot water FAST to get that coffee fix before a long treck back to the car!

        What a gem

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        "I haven’t gotten to use this gem yet, but I’ve used others before and love the ease and compactness. I wanted it for backpacking in the backcountry and it’s perfectly lightweight and fits all parts easily. Does not come with the propane container though, so get that as well in a separate purchase." -Carley Gross

        jetboil on the appalachian trail

          I've been using this jetboil everyday for 127 days now and it's still kicking! It boils fast and is easy to work. It's only down fall is the plastic bowl that comes with it. My bowl is cracked but I've definitely put it through the ringer! I love this product and highly recommend it!

          I absolutely love this stove!

            This is a must have for backpacking or camping! Super light and compact and easy to use. I also bought the pot adapter and the one meal I have made in my pot was easy and turned out as if I made it at home on the stove top. I recommend 100%

            Ultimate Game Changer

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            JetBoil has changed the game when it comes to camping, and I will never go on a backpacking trip without this in my pack. This could never replace a full stove burner set-up for car camping, but it is a great addition to have for coffee when you just can't wait. For backpacking this is all you need, whether it be boiling water for a dehydrated meal, heating up some pre-packed meals, or whatever use you can think of this is up to the task. I seriously cannot say enough good things about the JetBoil, I don't know how I ever camped without it.

            Essential!

            • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

            The Jetboil flash is an awesome, efficient little stove. Super easy and straightforward to use. Ditch the insta-coffee (yuck) and grab the Coffee Press attachment for your favorite brew in the field. It's also super handy for your backpacking meals, just boil some water and let 'er rip! Everything stores away inside the cooking canister and makes it super easy to pack.

            Any idea how long a canister lasts? roughly, of course..

            Best Answer

            So many variables to how long a canister will last, but using Jetboil's specs (which are given in liters) a 100g canister will do about 10 liters @ about 2.5 minutes per 1/2 liter at a time, so figure about about 45-50 minutes. For the 230g canister, it's 23 liters, so figure about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Perfect world scenario-10 grams of fuel per liter boiled, or 5 grams per the cup's capacity. Results are going to vary wildly, so give yourself a good margin for error. Hope this helps.

            While Phil's mathematical deduction is probably impeccable, it's always good to bring extra fuel when using a new stove until you are accquainted with its rate of comsumption. At least that's what works for me.

            I mark my cylinders with hashes when I use them. Each hash represents "a boil." Helps me keep track. Would love to tell you how many hashes I've made on a cylinder before it went dry, but I only recently started this process.



            One "trick" for finding the level of gas inside is to pour hot water down one side of the cylinder. Where there is no liquid gas, the metal will stay hot... but at the "waterline" you will feel the metal get cold because the fuel is absorbing the heat.

            Will it work at 10,000 plus feet, or below freezing?

            Yes and yes. Here is info provided by Jetboil:

            "All canister stoves suffer a performance drop in cold weather. The colder the fuel, the lower the vapor pressure, and the lower the burner output. The result can be noticeably longer boil times and difficulty lighting the burner with the built-in piezoelectric ignitor. Jetpower?s lower firing rate reduces canister cooling and increases performance. Jetpower fuel, with propane, helps mitigate cold weather problems. We suggest that you keep the canister in a warm pocket between uses and remove it immediately prior to heating your food. Carry an extra canister and keep it warm to swap out with a cold one when necessary, and always carry matches or a lighter as backup."



            Also read neip138207's comment below, which confirms that it will work just fine.

            Best Answer

            I agree with Eli's research above. I do mostly alpine/sub-alpine backpack trips, mostly above 10,000 ft. Last September I spent several nights (and prepared several meals with my Jetboil) above 12,000 ft with no problems. I did keep fuel canister in foot of my sleeping bag and then kept fuel inside jacket just before firing up the stove (as Jetboil recommends). I also tried a homemade fuel "cozy" - out of a couple can coozies - to see if that would hold in heat after removing from sleeping bag (it only seemed to help marginally and I no longer bring it on trips). The only problem that I notice with Jetboil is that the spark igniter doesn't work at higher elevations (or is that due to colder temps?). I rely on my Bic lighter for ignition (also as Jetboil recommends) when that happens.



            You may want to consider Jetboil Sol stoves (both the titanium and non-titanium versions). These models use Jetboil's "Thermo-Regulate Burner Technology" to work in "temperatures down to 15 degrees Fahrenheit".



            Pic below shows Jetboil Flash at a chilly (26.4 deg F) 10,400 ft in the Wind River Range (note homemade fuel cozy).

            I used this on the summit of Mt. of The Holy Cross 14,005' to make coffee and it boiled the water very quickly. We did a sunrise summit. At 5:30am the temp on the summit was in the low 20's with a windchill in the teens and had no issues boiling the water.

            Where can you buy the fuel canister from, it says sold separately?

            How do you refill the gas?

            What type of fuel can you use?

            I see that msr sells extra fuel bottles, would that work for refilling any fuel canister?

            Any sporting goods or outdoor supply store will sell the fuel canisters.

            Refill is accomplished by changing out the empty fuel canister (attaches to the underside of the stove).

            Use isobutane/propane mix fuel.

            As long as the msr replacement fuel canisters are compatible with this stove, you can use them.

            when you say "fuel bottle" do you mean the bottles used for the whisperlite stove or the isopro canisters used for say a pocket rocket? Any type of canister should work (might be some performance issues with different fules but all have the same type of attachment) but the fuel bottles MSR sells would not work with a canister stove. Canister stoves have the disadvantage of needing a whole new canister when they are empty or getting low.

            What's the difference between this and the SOL stove+cup? Is this one smaller?

            Just to be clear, this is larger than the SOL. The flash is 1 liter and the SOL is .8 liter and is also 0.6" shorter and 3.5oz lighter than the flash (according to jetboil specs) It also has a unique valve to help with cold weather use. I will be posting pics for comparison and also weighing both of them with a digital scale. The neoprene cozy is a little thicker and the handle is more durable on the flash, with the SOL being a little thinner cozy and the handle being a thinner rubberized material, to save weight I am guessing. Hope this clears things up and for those who have never seen the SOL.

            How difficult is it to find fuel in Chile? Specifically, I'll be flying into Santiago and hope that it will be possible to find some fuel when I get there.

            Thanks!

            You shouldn't have any problems. Remember that any canister with a Lindal (EN417) valve will work.

            This might help- http://www2.ing.puc.cl/~cseebach/mountain/stores/index.html

            A quick Google search for climbing equipment stores in Santiago, Chile turns up lots and lots of other options. Basically, it doesn't look like anyone has any problem finding what they need with much of anything. Patagonia and Aconcaqua draw in lots of people, so you know that if there's a demand, there's always a supply.

            Try this from Jetboil or give them a call (888-611-9905)to see if they have more distributors in Santiago.

            has anybody used a frybake pan with a jet boil stove?

            The flash personal cooking system includes the pot kit.
            I haven't used a fry-bake pan on it but you'll probably need to turn the heat way down (lids and low temp are the best).
            The jetboil is probably closer to a torch than a stove. It is a directly aplied flame. So you don't want it to heat through the pan before it warms and then heats it. This isn't the experiment you want to do in the field with your food. Try it at home on a few thing to figure out how not to burn it, seems to be the number one problem. Also if you're using a pot stir very frequently.

            Best Answer

            All great stoves. Based on your needs, take the Primus off the table- it's more than just a water boiler, and of the three, it's got the best ability to actually do some cooking in. It's also the heaviest system of the three, but it does also burn multiple fuel types besides just canister fuel. I own one, and have been nothing but impressed, but again, it's one of my "real food" stoves for when weight isn't so much of an issue. The Flash will suit your needs perfectly for hot drinks and boiling water, but it's still basically a personal cooking system. The 1L cup will only boil about 1/2L of water at a time- too little for two people without another companion cup, and requiring several rounds of boiling to serve you both. If you want a Jetboil system that's more suited to preparing two meals and two hot drinks at once, have a look at the Jetboil GCS with the 1.5L pot. The Reactor is a water boiling classic. They don't call it the Reactor for nothing. Higher altitudes, colder climates, fast boil time, a little better ability to actually cook in than the Flash, 1.7L pot that will give the two of you plenty of water for all your needs with just one round. So, of the three, I would go with the Reactor, but then also weigh it against the Jetboil GCS. Hope that helps.

            Based on the info about mostly being used for dehydrated foods and powdered drinks, I think the JBoil would suit your needs fine. the only run-in you might find is that there are two of you, so there might be some waiting. But I've found that the JBoil beats almost any other stove in boil time, so the waiting might be alleviated. The JBoil is more compact, so another plus. But definetley try to compare them all side by side if possible so you can see for your self. Happy Trails!

            What is the main difference between the jetboil flash and the jetboil sol

            Best Answer

            Looks like the Flash weighs 14oz (1 liter water cup) and the Sol weighs 11.5oz (.8 liter water cup). The Sol has Jetboil Thermo-Regulate™ technology, which allows it to function in lower temps... the Flash doesn't. Thats the only difference... The Sol is lighter/smaller and works better in lower temps... Is this worth the extra money? You decide... I personally like standard butane stoves as I am not as limited to only boiling water like with these systems...

            does it come with the gas canister?

            does it come with the gas canister?

            And you're better off trying to find the gas canisters locally if possible. Since compressed gas canisters are considered a hazardous material, they can only be shipped by ground transportation, and they really nail you for shipping and/or special haz-mat fees that drives the price up substantially for just a few at a time.
