Jetboil is introducing three new stoves — the titanium and aluminum Sōl personal cooking systems and the economical Zip — along with a 1.8-liter companion cup and the CrunchIt (a tool to help users recycle fuel cans), all for 2011. Read on for product descriptions, specs, and video below.
Available in titanium(Ti) or aluminum (Al) versions, the Sōl personal cooking system is an ultra-compact, four-season upright canister cooking system.
In it, Jetboil introduces its Thermo-Regulate Burner Technology, which promises to deliver consistent heat output down to 15°F. The system includes Jetboil's integrated burner base and an 0.8-liter FluxRing Cooking Cup.
The aluminum no-frills Zip is distilled down from Jetboil's flagship PCS to provides essential Jetboil functions and features at an economical price. It features a 0.8-liter FluxRing cooking cup with insulating cargo cozy, adjustable burner, drink through lid with pour spout and strainer, and is compatible with all Jetboil accessories.
The 1.8-liter Sumo, a hard-anodized FluxRing cooking cup, expands the capacity of your Jetboil Sōl, Zip, Flash, or PCS systems, clipping directly onto the compatible Jetboil burner bases. In winter, use it with the all-season Sōl system burner, to melt snow fast. Or use it for one-pot cooking for your small group. For packing, it's wide enough to stow a 230 gm can of fuel and burner base with room to spare, or a complete Sōl or Zip system with 100 gm fuel.

Wondering if you can recycle those empty butane fuel canisters? Yes, you can. Empty fuel canisters are recyclable as tin/steel and the stainless steel CrunchIt fuel canister recycling tool is safe, foolproof, and compliant with recycling standards. The CrunchIt punctures and vents your butane fuel canisters, rendering them recycling-bin ready.
