Lightweight, controlled cooking

The Jetboil MicroMo

Jetboil claims its latest MicroMo cooker ($279.95) to be ‘ultralight’ and to have ‘ultra’ cooking control.

Key to this cooker, which is compatible with all Jetboil accessories, is a premium regulator simmer control in a low-profile design and a wind-blocking shroud.

It has a push-button igniter, 0.8l FluxRing cooking cup with drink-through lid and pour spout, measuring cup and bowl base, and is said to offer consistent performance down to -6.5℃.

Accessories include a coffee press, hanging kit and pot support.

The MicroMo weighs 340g and is said to boil 500ml in 2min15sec. Up to 12-litres of water can be boiled using a 100g canister.
