Jetboil Flash Cooking System

Editor: Katjarina Hurt


Just the facts:

A Fast, Compact and Efficient Cooking System.This system lights with the click of a button, and in just over two minutes, provides two cups of boiling water for cocoa, coffee, instant soup or a gourmet freeze-dried meal. Designed to be a safe, the burner secures the igniter, protecting it from bumps along the road. The cooking cup clips onto the burner—preventing accidental spills—and the fuel canister tripod ensures overall stability. A color-changing heat indicator signals when contents are hot.

My Story:

One of the fastest, easiest to use stoves I have ever gotten my hands on. I’ve used this camping in Eastern Washington to heat water for freeze-dried meals; at a cabin in Yellowstone, WY to make tea and coffee for an early start into the park; and snow-camping on the Easton Glacier of Mt. Baker, WA to melt snow to refill my water supply.

I love that no lighter is required, it brings water to a boil incredibly quickly, and the safety features such as the fuel canister tripod and the insulating layer around the container definitely help in an unpredictable environment (as well as when you are, or are around, somewhat clumsier people).

What could be done better:

Everyone seems to post reviews about the push-starter giving out, but it has yet to fail on me yet. No complaints here!
