The first thing to realize is that this uses butane/propane cylinders. The nature of this fuel is that it might not work at very high altitudes (sorry, Everest climbers) and also might not work well when it is below freezing. If this is your situation, go directly to a "white gas" stove. I have used this thing at 8,000 feet and 50 degrees F, and it worked fine.
As an engineer, I appreciate a clever design, and this stove has impressed me. The fuel and the stove itself can be stored in the cook pot, which saves space. If you get the java kit, that fits in there as well, along with the pot support fuel stand (more on those later).
This thing is meant to do one job, and to do it well: boil water. This means that it is great for things like cous-cous, coffee, soup, tea, hot dogs, oatmeal, etc. I thought that using one of the larger fuel cylinders would save money. The advantage of the larger fuel cylinder is that they are more economical (buy in bulk and save). However, the JetBoil positively sips fuel. My one large cylinder has been on a few campling trips, and several picnics. It has cooked soup, cous-cous, and probably a gallon of coffee and hot chocolate, and there is still some fuel left. Since the large cylinders do not fit in the cook pot, you have to carry them separately. This thing uses so little fuel that I am just going to stick with the smaller fuel cylinders, just to make it easier to carry.
You have a couple of other options with this stove.Read more ›

While it boils water quickly, it's not that I'm in race, but the fact that I can now carry much less fuel than I normally would for any given trip. When I'm carrying all my supplies for days on end, every pound matters and this system is a way for me to keep my all up weight lighter by several pounds. If you are eating freeze dried meals this stove with the included mug will be the one and possibly only heating tool you need. On my first trip with this stove, I carried my trusty Wisperlight International too, just to make sure I had a backup system. That ended up being a total waste because once I tested out the Jetboil on an actual trip, there was no going back.
I put together a video showing how it all fits into the cooking cup, check it out, you'll be glad to know how it all works. What I didn't explain is that the lighter element in the stove base sticks up a little, but the concave bottom of the fuel cylinder keeps it from hitting anything.
This system continues to be wonderful. There are other combinations now that include the pot support and stabilizer kit too. You can also get different sizes of posts and even different materials such as titanium. Some have a wrap that changes color with boiling water, which isn't really necessary since you can hear it boil, but it is interesting to see.
5 stars for system, one I've used many times and continue to enjoy.

The low rating is not a reflection of the seller, more of the product. If something doesn't work fresh out of the box, that is not a good sign to me.Published 2 months ago by Barefoot Jason

I love my Jetboil. I love it so much that I sometimes use it in the house, or at work, to boil water for a quick cup of coffee or a packet of noodles. Read morePublished on July 2, 2011 by Wilhelm
