    Save the freeze-dried meals for high camp.

    The Jet Boil Genesis Base Camp System is a compact two-burner stove system that runs on a standard 16.4oz propane bottle and allows you to whip up everything from bacon and eggs for breakfast to spaghetti and meatballs for dinner. The compact design allows the stove to fold together and nest in the included pot for easy carrying up to camp, but also limits the mount of space the system takes up in the back of your rig when car camping. Once set up, the Genesis morphs into a mini backcountry kitchen with a burner for the included non-stick frying pan that doubles as a lid and the five-liter pot that also functions as a container for the cooking system. What makes the system even better is the Jetlink-compatible design, which allows a third burner (sold separately) to be attached to the Genesis for making coffee and tea while you're frying up pork slices and spuds. Once packed away, the whole kit measures just over ten inches high and seven inches across, and it weighs just over nine pounds, so getting into the the cook tent would be a nightmare.

    Perfect setup for #vanlife

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    We got the Genesis Base Camp System shortly after it was released and have used it twice a day almost every day since then (two years+). It's the perfect setup for van life as it packs up super small and includes everything you need for a variety of meals from pastas and curries to bacon, eggs and pancakes. We really like the non-stick ceramic pan and how adjustable the burner is. Great for simmering or rapid boiling!

    Love how it packs up.

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    My friend had this set-up and after using it all through festival season with her, I had to get one myself. While using my friend's we had to replace the part that attaches to the gas tank, but it was easy enough to find a new one and haven't had any problems since. I love how it packs up so easily and is super easy to clean. So far, it's been great for car camping and using off and on for festival season.

    Very unreliable; regulator fails

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I really, really wanted to like this stove, especially since it costs so much money. I bought one in May 2016. It worked well for a couple of times, then just quit letting gas through the regulator. I called Jetboil, and would have to ship the entire unit, pots and all, back just to get a new regulator. I did that, and the new pot had dings and scratches in it, and the stove didn't fold up very easily. Leaving for a 3 week trip that day, so no choice but to keep it. It worked fine for a few weeks, then the regulator failed again, while we were miles out in the desert, now with no way to cook our food. Called Jetboil again upon our return. By now other people were experiencing the same problem, so they sent me a new regulator. It worked fine for a few times, and then last weekend the new one failed also. It began spewing gas wildly from beneath the cap. So 3 failures in 6 months. If we want to have assurances we will be able to cook in the backcountry, then we need to bring a backup stove, which pretty much negates the reason I was willing to spend $250 for a compact stove. I would not buy this stove until they solve the regulator issue. The regulator on my $30 Coleman stove worked flawlessly for 20+ years, so I don't think it is exactly rocket science. Just another cheaply made piece of crap.

    Stove is Awesome - Frying pan is not.

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

    I gave the system a 3 star rating for a few reasons:
    1. The frying pan came with two flaws in the non stick coating. The first time I used the stove the coating immediately pealed off at those two spots. It was low heat cooking and I use only plastic utensils. Backcountry was great about the pan and exchanged the entire system for me. Hopefully the replacement pan will be ok.
    2. The pot does have to be centered perfectly on the burner or it wobbles a little. Seems like it should be a little more forgiving.
    3. The tubing for connecting the propane is a bit awkward. You end up with the tank sitting at an angle next to the stove. My guess is that it was made that way to keep the tubing short enough to fit in the carry bag but long enough to keep the propane tank in the upright position. The tubing disconnects and stores in the top of the carry bag. I also feel like I have to be careful with the whole thing when transporting so I dont bend the tubing by setting something on top of the stove. I think a flexible connection that is a little longer would be a little nicer.
    Now for the stove itself - the stove is fantastic. The stove lit immediately every time and the heat control is excellent down to a very low setting. Also, with the jetboil pot I boiled water for pasta very quickly. I wish the stove in my kitchen worked this well. I’m sure I’ll get used to the minor flaws I mentioned. The stove is really awesome.

    UPDATE: I received the new stove from shipping both ways! The replacement frying pan has no flaws. I havent cooked on it yet but I'm sure it's going to be fine. As for number 2 above...completely my fault. The pot is perfectly designed to be stable on the stove. The burner grate is just a bit smaller than the recessed area on the bottom of the pot so it is very stable. I dont know what I did the first time i used it but I was wrong. I'm really happy that I have my new stove. I upgraded from 3 stars to 4 but wont go 5 based on the flawed frying pan. It's a really nice stove though! THANKS BACKCOUNTRY!!!

    Compact and powerful

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Used this stove this weekend, loved everything about it!! I'm a Scoutmaster, so on our canoe trips and other none Backpacking excursions I do alot of cooking for the other leaders. I have been looking for a compact unit for outings such as this, and this one fits the bill. This Jetboil and a Aluminum Dutch Oven and your good to go!!!

    I cooked for a group of 5 this weekend, and no issues at all! non stick is really NONSTICK!! which makes cleanup a breeze. Eggs, sausage gravy, and sausage egg and cheese mix-up for tortillas. all cooked great! and the perk on the other burner for coffee.

    Very easy!

    Works Like a Charm

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Prior to purchasing this product, I own and use a Jetboil Sumo Titanium. I love the thing, the only problem is, when I bring it along for groups bordering 6 people, it becomes a hassle since we all begin to wait for our water to boil. There isn't enough hot water to go around. So I decided to spring for this when I my group of 8 friends gathered at Joshua Tree earlier in March 2016. Having this pot opens up a wealth of cooking possibilities. You can now make stews, pasta dishes, or jambalayas directly in the pot, along with that the possibility of giving things a quick sizzle in the frying pan.

    Maybe the only drawback is the amount of cleaning you'll have to consider after finishing up with meals. Also, this is designed for the propane fueled tanks, the isobutane canisters that normally go with Jetboil products cannot be used.

    Overall, the product worked really well in actual outdoor conditions, and made serving hot meals to a large group very fast and more convenient.

    How is the fuel consumption? I guess a good yardstick would be how long could you burn both burners wide open on one bottle? Thanks!
