Jetboil: personal cooking system
Heat, eat, and drink from this ultra-compact 1 liter unit. Ideal for coffee or tea on the go, dehydrated meals, remote worksites, emergency kits.
The Jetboil PCS (or personal cooking system) is another gadget designed for specialized use that may have greater applicability to the general public. The Jetboil PCS is an integrated system for outdoor cooking. No assembly is required and the system fully activates with just the push of a button. The 1 liter insulated hard-anodized aluminum cooking cup has a high-performance burner base, drink-through plastic lid, and a protective bottom cover that can also be used as a measuring cup. The burner base has a built-in piezoelectric igniter. The entire system stacks securely, and when packed is smaller than a Nalgene bottle. Typically favored by backpackers I could see the PCS taking off with anyone who desires the ease and convenience of preparing hot food in challenging circumstances. With its compact size and copious accessories (extra companion cup, coffee press, color cozies or maintenance kit) you could just as easily take this into the forest or the backyard. And if you're with friends, check out the Group Cooking System.
