Off-the-grid cooking can be a gourmet experience at points. Mostly it means getting water hot and turning a pouch or packet into adventure-fueling calories or caffeine. Finding a reliable, affordable system that packs small and blasts off on command is a classic need among trekkers, paddlers and climbers. FIX:
If boiling water for one to three people under moderate conditions is the mission, JETBOIL FLASH is among a few obvious choices. Driven by canister fuel and optimized for funneling BTUs where they count, FLASH is self-contained for the space-conscious. The 1-liter, canister-like vessel comes with an insulating sleeve and packs small while getting 16 oz of water to boiling in about two minutes. Testers liked the built-in igniter and tech geeks will love the temperature indicator feature of the brightly-colored sleeve. Quick cycling of this booster rocket-like stove accommodates multiple diners and a 100 g fuel canister can be coaxed into heating 12 liters if used prudently.
Yes! This is amazing! If you like to be well-prepared when you are on-the-go, and enjoy things that are minimalistic (think: declutter your pack), you will be very happy using this product. It's all you need for a warm meal and some hot tea on those chilly nights.‹
