The Helios by Jetboil is an all-in-one cooking system that covers the gamut, from melting snow to prepping robust meals for you and your crew. Incorporating the same FluxRing technology that launched the award-winning, best-selling PCS, Jetboil has scaled up and combined the PCS' benefits with inverted butane canister injection to create the easiest to use, most efficient, high capacity system available for outdoor cooking. Helios lights quickly and reliably with the click of a button, and heats consistently down to the last drop of fuel. The system burns liquid fuel, so you can use every last drop in your canister and every boil is consistent. Clip on the windscreen for a steady burn in 10 + mph winds.

Bullet Proof jet engineI've owned and used over a year now, owning both this and the Flash. The units are comparable in weight, but for sheer cooking volume - this wins hands down. Starts first click piezo, and has surprising flame control down to small blue simmer. I can easily cook pancakes and other delicate stuff, and then crank up to full roar mac and cheese. Only con is the black lid that's tricky to pack up, but once you do it a few times you figure it out. Extremely stable, as the flux ring keeps pot laterally stable. Boil times are spot on to spec. I use now mostly for scout camping, cooking larger portion stews and pastas...4/5 stars.

Great stove for home cooking on the goI bought this item because I was tired of eating sandwiches and beef jerky while out hiking for days. Boils water from a frozen state quickly. Able to have Mac N Cheese with green beans in about 12 min. Unit also put out enough heat to warm hands while cooking. ,,,,Pros - Large, easy to use, packs up small, durable, easy to cook eggs in.,,Cons- The lid could use some sort of venting holes that double as a strainer, no small bag to put the parts into. ( I worry it will scratch up the non stick coating)( I brought a bag to keep those things in.) ,,,,Overall - I would buy it, but I think you could do almost all the same cooking in a zip just have to be much more patient.
