17 Mar Jetboil Cooker Flash review
As I’ve mentioned in my top 5 hiking gear and gadgets of 2017, I really love my Jetboil Cooker Flash! I would really like to give you my honest review and tell you why you should bring it on your next hiking trip.
Marvelous and highly practical design
Let’s start off with the design of the Jetboil! It’s small, it hardly weighs anything and everything fits into the cooker perfectly. The cooker is wrapped in neoprene so you can touch it without burning yourself, even when it’s still cooking. You can drink out of the cooker, with or without the lid. You don’t have to bring a lighter because it’s already built in. Though I highly recommend bringing a spare one with you wherever you go. There’s also a measuring cup that protects the burner part when not in use and there’s a stand for your gas bottle so your cooker is really steady wherever you go. There’s a heat indicator on the side in the shape of a flame. It’ll turn orange when your water is boiling.
Simply put, it’s a highly practical and lovely design!
Great capacity and fast
Next to it’s great design and overall functions, I adore the capacity of 1 liter! We can boil enough water for 2 meals in one go, and some more after that for a nice cuppa while we’re waiting for our meals to be done. It’s really fast as well. It’ll take about 1 minute to boil 500 ml of water.
Value for money
So I hesitated a lot before buying our Jetboil, mainly because of the price. I didn’t know it was worth the money, but after watching some videos about it I was sure of my decision and bought it. I never dreaded that decision and I absolutely won’t go on any day hikes without it anymore. Why go without a hot meal and a nice cuppa when you don’t have to?
