This was our firs time using the MiniMo and it was impressive. As my wife said “Crap it’s done already!” with the water boiling in less than 2 minutes. We used it for multiple meals (I want to say 2 breakfast, 3 dinners and 2 deserts) and multiple cooking styles. Of course we had our dehydrated chili and red beans and rice but also hot cocoa, coffee and even did some simmering on it (fried up some thick jerky). It also cleans out super easy, just heat up your water wipe it out and it is good to go. This is a great cooking solution for backpacking, camping or even just to have around for emergencies.
