Jetboil’s Unique Cook System Design
According to the Jetboil website, the Helios is hailed as being “the easiest to use, most efficient, high capacity system available for outdoor cooking”.

Just like their best-selling PCS personal cooking system, the Helios is a self-contained, purpose-built, all-in-one system that gives you everything you need to be up and running very quickly right out of the box. They are not really designed to be integrated with any of your other cooking gear.

To read a full review of the Jetboil Helios Cooking System, check out my guest post on SectionHiker.com

Now here is some gratuitous eye candy!

    Brian- just read your write up on Philips blog, excellent, I missed it the first time around. That’s a lot of stove just for water boiling even if used with a group.  Seems to me this is one model that’s due a non-stick surface so it’s more “cooking” friendly for groups. 

    FYI higher protein foods like eggs and meat will stick faster than foods with lower amounts of protein.

      Thanks JJ, I will occasionally write a guest blog post if asked. Not something I do very often. It’s a really interesting and quite fascinating stove if you’re the type of person that likes playing with stoves – guilty!

      I did not know about the high protein vs. low protein thing!

    Hey Brian,
    The Helios Jetboil just came in the mail and I’m impressed (not at the weight).  I’ve only just set it up on the Kitchen table but it is however, a great stove.  The Cookpot is 2l. (family sized) with a built-in pot cozy, a low center of gravity (not typical of most canister stoves), a cute snap together windscreen and the piezoelectric igniter is a sweet touch.  Cons are size and weight (Big/heavy) and a lag between flame adjustment at the valve and the burner (like an MSR XGK/Whisperlite without the pumping).  That being said, It’ll accompany me on a car-camping trip through the canyonlands this summer with my kids.  When we step off on the trail, it’ll be an alcohol ministove and titanium cookpot, Gorilla Gear backpacks, Hennessey Hammocks and UL Backpacking gear to the max, but until we step off onto the trails, that Helios will be KEY!  Besides, I live in Louisiana, so it’ll also figure into my Emergency Preparedness gear for Hurricane Season.  Thanks for the Jetboil.  You absolutely ROCK!  Now I’ll check to see if Jetboil makes a companion non-stick skillet!

      Thanks Paul, glad to hear it arrived safe and intact. You may have noticed that I have used the pot already, I did that as part of my review for Philip at SectionHiker, but cleaned it up as best I could.

      You’re sopt on with all your points and I had the same experience with fule adjustment lag. Overall it’s a great stove, just not what I needed and so I figured someone else could be using it instead of having it sitting here.

      Enjoy and let me know how it works out for you on your trips!
