User Review: Jetboil Personal Cooking System (PCS)
Price Paid: Gift
I have used the Jet Boil on my past few outings. I decided to use it for backpacking in Glacier National Park. We wanted to keep the weight down so we only used it for boiling water. No extra pans, only dehydrated food. If you go this route it is very good at what it does, boil water fast without using lots of fuel. I like the fact that I can pack the fuel, the burner and the stand into the container.
We have used it with the pot stabilizer and cooked with pans but it seemed to go through a lot of fuel. We also bought an extra cannister but have yet to use it. As an earlier reviewer commented, be careful not to let it boil over or you can't turn it off without risking burning your fingers. Also be careful when pressing the lid on. Steam can come up from the holes and burn your hand.
