The cool thing with Jetboil is that you can pop it out of your backpack or glove box and whip up a cup of tea or coffee in a couple of minutes. No messing with trying to assemble and balance complicated stoves, unpacking cookware, or digging out matches: it's all integrated into one unit. I go on regular cross-country drives and I am looking forward to taking a Jetboil along.
Jetboil uses a isobutane/propane fuel tank. One tank is enough to boil twelve liters of water. It's a standard tank fitting and most fuel mixes are pretty much the same, so you can probably use other brands if Jetboil "Jetfuel" isn't available.
Open and pour a can of beans in the cooking cup. Stick in up to six hotdogs vertically, like buried phone poles. ...
I've created a short quicktime movie showing a complete cook cycle from setting up the jetboil to the point of water boiling. Running time is about two and a half minutes.
