JetBoil’s New Stash is the Minimalist’s Dream Stove

Anyone who has spent any amount of time living out of their rig knows that it is hard to get by without a full size camp stove – especially if you’re cooking for multiple people. But for those minimalist overlanders that don’t do much cooking and can get by with some of the delicious freeze-dried foods on the market nowadays, the new JetBoil Stash might be a contender for your kitchen box.

Full disclosure, I still bring a minimal camp stove and fuel on my trips even though I primarily use a full size camp stove to do the majority of my cooking in the backcountry. A backpacking stove is perfect for heating water for oatmeal or morning coffee and set up is quick and easy.

JetBoil’s Stash cooking system weighs in at an astonishing 7.1 ounces (without fuel) and is 40% lighter than their next lightest stove, the JetBoil Zip.

Features

The Stash Cooking System is a well-designed stand-alone stove that includes a titanium burner and .8L FluxRing cook pot with a lid and attached pour handle. JetBoil’s FluxRing technology ensures a rapid 2.5 minute boil time, ensuring that your morning dose of caffeine makes it into your system in an efficient manner. The Stash system comes standard with a fuel can stabilizer to keep your stove steady on rocky or uneven terrain.

The best part about the Stash Cooking System is the nesting design makes taking your stove anywhere super-simple. Every piece of the Stash stashes inside the titanium cooking pot – including space for a small, 100-gram JetPower fuel canister.

Is this stove for you?

The Stash Cooking System wouldn’t work for cooking for large groups or with any recipe that requires simmering – this is a boil only type of system, but for those that can get by with it, the lightweight, low-cost ($129.95) Stash is perfect for those that want to boil water quickly in their rig, but also take it on the trail for a little hiking or backpacking.

You can preorder from JetBoil now, or purchase it at JetBoil retailers on February 27, 2021.
