Jetboil Recall

If you didn't see it, Jetboil has announced a recall on burners that went out to distributors in 2008. They have three types of burners, and one of them has a thread problem that can allow gas to leak and pose a fire hazard. If you go to their website at http://www.jetboil.com/, they have photos posted so you can tell if yours is affected.

I checked, and I have a bad one. I filled out their form online, and in about two days they sent me a pre-paid, pre-addressed box to put my burner in to mail back for exchange. Really simple -- just put the burner in the box, stick it in the envelope, seal it, and drop it in the mail.

I'm happy with it. It's compact, fires up with the push of a button, and boils water in about a minute and a half.

Jetboil Recall

I haven't had it out in really rough conditions yet, but it has a great reputation. By nesting the fuel cannister and stove inside the cup, everything's highly protected. The only caveat I've heard is that isobutane fuel has some temperature limitations, but it can handle cold far better than butane.
