User Review: Jetboil Personal Cooking System (PCS)
This is an amazing piece of equipment - if all you're gonna do is boil two cups of water and pour it into the ubiquitous two serving Mountain House freeze dried dinner then this is the unit for you! It boils water twice as fast as my second favorite Snow Peak GigaPower stove which tells me it's using half as much fuel (it is!).
Mine gets used to 1) boil two cups of water as mentioned above, 2) melt snow and 3) to make coffee. I'm 59 years old and I've probably consumed more aluminum from metal pots than anyone would care to think about and I've suffered no ill effects to date so that isn't a concern for me. So far I haven't sprung for the coffee press (I use the kind of coffee that comes in a tea bag) but I just might. I WOULD recommend the feet for this thing as it is a little tall and top heavy, particularly when cooking inside your tent.
