In recent years I’ve been using the JetBoil MiniMo.
I cook and drink out of the one pot.
I love the convenience of the piezoelectric igniter. The auto-igniters on early JetBoils FAILED quickly, but they seem to have solved that problem now.
You can fit an 8oz canister in the wider pot of the MiniMo. You can also fit a 4 oz canister along with the MiniMo’s burner in its pot sideways. That’s handy.
I don’t need simmer so that’s not a selling point for me.
The MiniMo replaced my much used MSR Reactor.
The best thing about the Reactor is that it is NOT locked on to the stove. I find it safer.
Both those stoves might be nearing end-of-life. … Or they may keep working for another decade. Both are bashed up.
So in advance of my recent, remote Patagonia trip I bought a new stove …
I hadn’t realized it had a colour changing boil indicator. Cute. I did watch.
But I found myself more often boiling over my dinner in the Flash. For me the larger capacity MiniMo is just right. And the MiniMo is easier to clean.
Adventure Alan likes the MiniMo best, as well.
