Jetboil is now offering an accessory that enables regular pots and pans to be used. See their announcement at:Mar 16, 2005 at 2:26 pm #1336180Kenneth GurneyMember
They have been discussing it for awhile… But what is the point? Don’t get me wrong my Jetboil serves a purpose, but if I want to do anything else but boil water I will use something else… Simmerlite?

I wonder how fuel efficient a Jetboil will be using the new accessory.
It’s difficult to tell from the puny bitmap on the Jetboil website what the product actually does. My fear is that it’s simply some metal you put a pan on top of.
I use a lot of water out on the trail, and so the efficiency of the Jetboil was a key selling point. I hope they kept this in mind during R&D of this new enhancement.
Maybe I’d be more impressed with a dedicated Jetboil cooking pan that has exhaust vents and locks into the burner base similarly to the cooking cup. They’d have to figure out how to move heat evenly across the cooking surface, but it seems doable.Mar 17, 2005 at 8:58 am #1336199Iain PerkinMember
It sounds like it’s a good idea to get a review out first. Patience will tell, unless you need it now!!!Mar 17, 2005 at 9:28 am #1336201Kenneth GurneyMember
From what I remember, The original Idea was to have the Pan Attach to the burner… It wouldn’t work because all the flame/heat was still focused on the center of the pan developing a hot spot. A recomendation would be to increase the Defuzer size and shape, but then again the size and end result would not be worth the Effort:(
The JetBoil is very attractive… It serves a purpose… The coffee press is a cool addition, but I think they’re reaching now…
