    I'm a big fan of pots with heat exchangers on them because: 1) you save fuel, 2) dinner is ready sooner, 3) snow-melting for drinking water takes a lot of time and fuel and a HX pot almost halves your fuel consumption. I've had this 3-liter Jetboil "Fluxring" pot for 2+ years now and have used it a lot on family and group camping trips.

    Yes, this pot is heavier than a 1-liter or 1.5 liter pot that I'd take on a 1 to 2-person trip, but the added volume is very convenient because you avoid doing two rounds of pasta for everyone on the trip and using a larger pot with more "freeboard" means you spill less pasta onto the ground.

    For backpacking I always leave the orange plastic HX protector at home and haven't had any problems with the HX getting bent or banged (I bring it along for car camping and canoeing). I often leave the black plastic lid at home, using a piece of aluminum foil or a plate (which also serves as a plate) as a lid.

    This pot lets you boil water noticeably faster than a standard pot to the point where I have, at times, gotten it from the garage to bring water to a boil faster on my kitchen stove. That side-by-side comparison of boiling 2 liters in a HX pot and a standard pot really reinforces how much faster it is. When I calculated the fuel savings the added weight of the heat exchanger is balanced by the fuel savings in about 4- to 8-person days and gets even more significant on larger or longer trips. I ALWAYS bring a HX pot if I'll be melting snow on a winter camping trip. You buy the HX pot once, but you save fuel weight and cost on every trip you use it.

    Fires up quick and sizzles! Boils water in minutes, even in the snow!

    Buy it!

    I got this stove for family hiking and backpacking trips. It is perfect for this type of use. It nests and fits well in packs. It is light and heats water amazingly fast. It probably does not heat evenly, but I just use it for heating water - so that is not a concern for me. Plus, I don't think any light stove set can heat evenly. Seems durable and well-made. Wind shield and starter are nice extras. As far as I go see, this is the best stove set for groups.

    Needed an efficient pot to boil larger volumes of water in for spaghetti; this is the win. +++ for the fins on the outside; so efficient; and yes; the surrounding greenery probably digs the water when it cools also.

    Another high quality pot from Jet Boil. Jet Boil is simply the most efficient gas canister stove out there.

    I am building an inventory for a motorcycle trip. Small light weight is a must and this fits the bill perfectly

    Love this item - my backpacking Scout finds to it be the easiest stove to use. Fuel canister and all fits into the vessel.

    Was what I was looking for. Everything is solid and fits nicely as advertised. Heats water in under 2 minutes to a rolling boil. Was very impressed. Used it for soups, tea and coffee. The pot conversion option is also very nice.

    The Jetboil system is very compact ever after adding the fuel can. You can also add the Coffee Compression into the sytem for storage with a little extra effort.
