The JetBoil MiniMo is one hell of a stove. To begin with right out of the packaging, it is lightweight, which is awesome for taking on backpacking trips or even day hikes if you’re feeling more into making a lunch at 10,000 feet. As is standard for many compact stoves in this realm, the MiniMo packs down inside of itself, meaning that it is able to be carried with ease, never having to waste space when packing for a trip. The packable nature helps keep everything in one package, which means that losing pieces is harder than you’d think.
The canister fuel system is easy to set up and a synch to light. This stove fires up every time with no problems on account of the push-button ignitor that comes standard. This stove uses a piezo ignitor to make lighting as easy as pushing a button. A piezo ignitor works by creating an electric charge (no batteries required, just to be clear) and using a spring-loaded hammer to strike quartz and spark, igniting the gas. In addition to this, the bowl on the MiniMo is larger than the one on the popular Flash system, which is better for making food as opposed to boiling water. With a blistering boil time of 2 minutes 15 seconds (per ½ liter of water), they system will have your coffee ready before you’re done untying those boots after a hard day of hiking. Once you’re done brewing, you can throw the stove on simmer, which is an awesome feature for such a small stove.
Some more awesome features of this stove include the fuel stabilizer, which comes included and does pack into the system once done, and the handles on the bowl, making it easy to hold while drinking/eating. In addition to that, the stoves comes with a lid so that you can drink directly from the bowl once you’ve brewed yourself some coffee.
In all, this is a great system for anyone looking for an extremely efficient camp stove that can be used in any situation. Make sure that you check this out if you’re searching for the right stove, once you give it a chance, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it before!
