If you need your cup of tea or coffee in super fast time then look no further. The Flash is amazingly quick at boiling water, has a useful indicator to show when it is boiling, it is also light and packable.
ADVANCED FOR 2018! Boiling water may not be rocket science, but doing it in 100 seconds takes a lot more than rubbing two sticks together. To create the new Flash 2.0, we challenged every aspect of our already iconic stove, modeling the combustion and selecting materials to optimize efficiency, speed and precision. The result is our fastest-ever stove: a backcountry cooking system that cuts a full minute off our best boil time. Prepare for liftoff.
Jetboil's Flash 2.0 Cooking System - Carbon is ideal for boiling water at speed. This system is designed for boiling rather than cooking and it does a great job of it. With a fairly low weight and built in internal igniter it is also practical for traveling with. The whole system and a small gas canister fit neatly inside the main pot while the insulated cover for this prevents damage in your pack.
The cooking cup has a super efficient FluxRing to allow the heat to spread across the cup and boil quickly. However, I did find that it struggles in the wind so you need to make sure it is well sheltered when you're using it outside. The insulated pot cover has a large, practical handle that make it easy to grip and move around but the highlight for me is the simple but amazingly effective colour changing heat indicator. The indicator changes red as the water comes to the boil which saves you guessing or constantly trying to look through the lid to see when it is boiling.
