User Review: Jetboil 1.5L Cooking Pot
Price Paid: $39.10 (auction)
I agree with 300Winmag. This is a truly innovative container! I use this when I go on trips with 2 or more, and it cooks up a wonderful meal. I've never had anything burn on the bottom.
I've used this with a variety of stoves (alcohol stove, a Jetboil/gaz stove and a Svea 123R) in various weather conditions and I've never had a problem. Heat distribution is relatively even and water boils quickly. As a result of the vanes on the bottom of the pot, the flame rarely singes the neoprene cozy.
As for packing, it fits in my pack very neatly between my compression sacks (sleeping pad and bag) and holds my water filter, utensils, stove (except the Svea) and eating cups. I agree that the top lid could be designed "better", but I hang the pot overnight with my bear bag or let it cool well before repacking it.
Be careful - the cozy will singe and even burn if you have your stove cranked up or try to use it over an open fire. I had a hard time replacing the cozy on my early Jetboil cooking cup, but they're now more readily available in both sizes.
