The Jetboil Flash reinvents the camping stove as we know it. The Flash is an all in one unit, a large 1 litre cooking cup isn’t only for cooking in but all parts including small gas canisters pack down inside it.
The cup itself has an insulated sleeve both to minimise heat loss and making it easy to hold, the base of the cup contains Jetboil’s “Fluxring” technology, a set of fins that allow quick induction of heat and even heat distribution, this means a litre of water boils in just 2mins 30secs. The lid also has a drink through spout so when you’re out on those cold mornings your drink stays hot for longer.
The stove itself has a Piezo ignition which means no faffing about with damp matches! Just one click ingition, easy! Also the flame regulator dial is connected to a long wire handle which makes it easy to use if you’re wearing gloves.
Finally the pack comes with stabalising legs which can be attached to your gas canister if you’re on uneven ground.
Heres a great unboxing video we found on You Tube which explains all the parts and features.
The Jetboil Flash is just one stove of a series of Jetboils. We’ve picked the Flash as our personal choice for the right balance of features and price. Other options are the Zip which is cheaper, smaller but importantly for us has no ignition which is why we went up to the Flash. The Flash only weighs 400g (without Gas canister) but if weight is super important to you the Jetboil Sol is titanium made and comes in at 300g. Or for couples or Families the Sumo comes with a massive 1.8 litre cup.
