User Review: Jetboil Personal Cooking System (PCS)
Price Paid: £68 Blacks
Bought the JetBoil a couple of years ago and loved it, the concept is fantastic and the boil time as good as it says on the box.
However I have hit a problem that has rendered the unit useless The JetBoil uses a burner from Primus that has a fabricy type disc in the middle of it. This disc is sandwiched between a perforated and profiled washer and the burner body. It seems that over time this fabricy disc deteriorates and reduces in size making it loose within the burner assembly.
When you use the JetBoil in this condition the fabricy disc can oscillate whilst in use making a very distinct pulsing/rasping noise, the heat output to the cup will drop but all the heat will be channeled into the burner body turning the burner ORANGE to WHITE hot.
I have contacted customer support a number of times to get a resolution to this, but it seems all they are interested in is taking your money as I have heard nothing back. This leaves me very disappointed as overall I thought the JetBoil was a fantastic concept.
