User Review: Jetboil 1.5L Cooking Pot
Price Paid: $55
This is the ONLY pot I now use for all my stoves, from my MSR Dragongly multi-fuel and Wind Pro canister to my little Vargo Jet-Ti canister to my Vargo Triad with ESBIT tablets.
It is very fuel efficient and on longer trips saves fuel weight and in winter melts snow for water FAST! The "Flux Ring" corrugated fins on the bottom trap heat that would be lost up the sides. The neoprene cozy cuts way down on radiation of heat from the sides. It is the perfect 4 season cook pot. Coupled with my MSR heavy foil windscreen this is a supremely efficient cook system. Just DON'T use it over an open fire without removing the neoprene cozy. To cut down weight I removed the wire handles and use a light aluminum pot gripper.
On the minus side, JetBoil really needs to make the plastic lid from a material that does not shrink so much. (i.e. needs a lid with a lower coefficient of linear expansion). It's nearly impossible to snap the lid back on in cold weather, even after shaving down the inner lip with my pocket knife.
