The burner attaches directly to the one-liter cooking cup, which has an integrated heat exchanger, plus a handle and sipper lid so you can boil, mix, eat, and drink from the same vessel. “It’s my stove of choice for alpine starts,” says one tester, pro snowboarder Jeremy Jones.

“As long as I slept with the fuel canister to keep it warm, I could have coffee and oatmeal ready within four minutes, which was a nice alternative to the ice-cold energy bars I used to start the day with on big expeditions.” The Flash is now available as part of the GreenKit which includes the CrunchIt tool, a handy utensil devised to safely vent residual fuel and puncture fuel canisters, making them ready for the recycling bin (the tool doubles as a handy bottle opener). $100; 14 oz.; jetboil.com
