A Jewel Of A Stove
Reviewed by Stephen D. - April 26, 2018

Likes: Well constructed and it works just as advertised. The PocketRocket 2 heats water to a boil very quickly but also adjusts easily to simmer. My GSI Ketalist kettle is stable whilst on it and afterwards the folded stove is packed away in the kettle with the rest of the Ketalist cook set (it fits in there even in its own case if you wish).

Dislikes: There are some reviews that mention negatively this stove as being loud. I have an aeronautics background but didn't need that to realize that anything with the word "Rocket" in the name may have some elevated decibels connected to it. But seriously, the sound is not that loud at all. Get your cooking done by "hiker midnight" and you won't bother anyone... Except maybe the folks who wrote those negative reviews.

Light, powerful, easy!

Switch from Jetboil Flash to PR2
Reviewed by Sheepdog - February 28, 2018

Likes: Finally took the plunge from my 6 yr old Jetboil Flash to the Pocket Rocket 2 and a pot. So far the stove has been great, can boil water fast, but also can fine tune the flame down to cook in my pot. My old Flash was on or off. Pot arms are wide enough to hold my 750ml pot and didn't feel unstable. Stove, fuel and striker fits in my pot. Doesn't have an ignition like my Flash stove but this was overcomes with a MSR striker that lights the stove easily.

Dislikes: Only one would be no igniter but I knew this when I bought the stove. So no real dislikes.
