User Review: Jetboil Flash Cooking System
Source: received it as a personal gift
It's a great stove and very simple to use. Extremely efficient and man does it boil water fast!
- Easy to use
- Boils fast
- All in one
- Everything packs inside
- Limited use
- Heavy compared to other options
When I first got into backpacking, I knew one of the key pieces of gear I needed to get was the Jetboil Flash PCS. I like how everything packs inside the cookpot and thought that it was a very efficient system. To date, this IS the fastest and most efficient stove I own.
The JB Flash PCS that I received came with a canister stabilizer, cookpot, cozy sleeve, cup, and lid.
Here's a photo with everything packed up including the fuel canister (JB on left)
Some features of this system:
Flame Control: Adjustable burner housed in a built in windscreen
Cooking: Hard to cook inside but good for boiling or steaming
Boil Time: My average boil time of 4 cups has been under 4 minutes.
Fuel Efficiency: Very efficient, a 7 oz. canister can last 5 days (2 boils a day)
Stability: With the added canister stabilizer and how the pot snaps to the stove, it is very sturdy
Packability: As seen on the photo above, everything can be packed inside the pot.
Weight: In my scale this system weighs 15.5 oz.
This system is my go-to system on group and family backpacking trips. Highly recommend this cooking system if you don't mind the weight.
