Jetboil Cooking System

Cotswold Outdoor are one of the leading outdoor retailers in the UK. They have fantastic bargains in their online shop , as well as shopping and equipment guides! They asked us to look at the Jetboil - the first in a revolutionary new line of Personal Cooking Systems that offer a fast and simple solution to cooking in the outdoors. Whether you’re backpacking, climbing, skiing, snowshoeing, boating, hunting, fishing, adventure racing, or involved in rescue work, Jetboil is the best way to provide hot, satisfying nourishment on the go.

Integrating burner and cookware, Jetboil’s design relies on a fast and efficient proprietary heat transfer system. Gone are the days of tippy stoves, clunky campware sets, and choking down gorp for days on end. This light, compact, and expandable system allows you to quickly adapt to the situation whether you’re going solo or with five of your friends.

Convenient and Fast

Jetboil includes all the elements required for outdoor cooking in a single unit. Burner and cooking cup are integrated into a single package. Assembly and priming are not required. FluxRing™ technology makes Jetboil a faster boiler than competing stoves. This speed, coupled with minimal setup, makes it the quickest way to get hot food into your stomach.

Fuel Efficient

FluxRing yields fuel efficiencies of over 80%, compared with the 30-40% typical of standard stoves and cookware. Bottom line: weight and money savings because a canister of fuel boils twice the volume of water. A single 100-gram Jetpower canister boils 12 litres of water.

Light and Compact

With the diameter of a Nalgene® bottle and less height, Jetboil stows in places standard cooksets won’t go, like your fanny pack or side pocket. At 15 ounces, Jetboil rivals the very lightest titanium cooksets and micro-canister stoves. When adding the weight savings from fuel efficient operation, Jetboil is without rival for fast and lightweight use.

Usage

Jetboil’s functionality and ease of use are unparalleled. The base and cooking cup snap securely together during use. Piezo electric igniter lights quickly and easily. Heat level can be dialed in to meet your exact needs. After heating is complete, the cooking cup unsnaps from the base and the contents stay insulated. For stowage, the base and canister nest inside the cup and the lid seals it closed to form one compact unit.

Expandable

Add extra companion cups for group cooking, “perk up” your Jetboil with our French Press, or check out our full line of Jetboil accessories to truly personalize your outdoor cooking experience.

What did we think?

The Jetboil is a smart piece of kit, that is small, lightweight and very easy to carry and setup.  The highly effecient burner stores away inside the unit and takes a matter of seconds to simply click it into place ready to use. To secure the gas bottle to the unit is a quick and easy task, screwing it in and you are ready for use.

Lighting is safe and easy taking advantage of the Piezo ignition , avoiding nasty burns from lighters or matches and once burning the flame is strong and contained within the burner base.  We used the unit outside in strong winds and it stayed alight and cooked the contents quickly.

We found that when boiling water for two mugs of coffee, even in the string winds, the unit only took three minutes to boil the water ready to make the tea.  This is more aimed at the quick and easy cooking, noodles, pasta, soups etc and not ideal for cooking stew for two people, but will do the job if you needed it to.

Overall, the unit is smart, compact and great for backpackers and tenters where space and weight are the essence.
